    The 2020 Gatorade Player of the Year in Colorado, Moss was a blue-chip recruit for former Arizona State coach Tracy Smith. He hit .305/.359/.494 with nine doubles and six home runs for the Sun Devils in 2021. After Smith’s firing at the end of that season, Moss transferred to Texas A&M, where he helped the Aggies to the College World Series by batting .380/.437/.520 with 18 doubles and six home runs. He replicated that production in 2023, when he slashed .355/.457/.466 with four home runs and 15 doubles. Moss previously hit the ball on the ground too frequently to tap into the sort of power that scouts expect of a 6-foot-5, 215-pound first baseman, and in 2023 he raised his fly ball rate by 10 points, from a 27.4% rate in 2022 to a 37.6% rate in 2023. That didn’t coincide with more game power, largely thanks to a poor 4.9% home run/fly ball ratio and to this point in his career Moss has been more of a contact hitter who controls the strike zone than a home run threat. He managed just a 100 mph 90th percentile exit velocity in 2023, which is light for the position and will need to find a way to more fully engage his lower half, create more leverage and hit for more power if he’s going to profile as an everyday first baseman at the big league level.
