Moss expected to be running in three months, which would make him ready or close to ready for spring training if all goes well. #Athletics— Susan Slusser (@susanslusser) October 23, 2014
That means no microfracture surgery needed for Brandon Moss, which is very good news. Impingement alleviated. #Athletics— Susan Slusser (@susanslusser) October 23, 2014
Moss had been bothered by right hip issues that apparently affected his production after the All-Star Break.
Stephen Vogt's right foot surgery goes well
Stephen Vogt had right foot surgery on October 14. The foot issue prevented him from catching and most outfield duties, and he was limited to first base for much of the year. From Janie McCauley of the Associated Press:
