A’s place Brandon Moss on paternity leave

3 Comments

Brandon Moss will be away from the A’s for 2-3 days on paternity leave, so the team called up Shane Peterson from Triple-A to take his spot on the roster.

Moss has been playing almost every day after platooning last season and is off to a nice start, hitting .283 with two homers and an .844 OPS in 13 games. Peterson is a 25-year-old career minor leaguer who was off to a huge start in his third crack at Triple-A, hitting .410 in 11 games.

Moss can remain on paternity leave for a maximum of 72 hours.
