The Giants took a shot at Moss in the 15th round in 2014, but the academically-inclined Moss chose to return to North Carolina. Moss showed very well at times this spring, though he still lacks the consistency for scouts to peg him as starter long term. His fastball worked mostly at 89-92 this spring, and he touched 95 early in the year before experiencing forearm tightness. His late-breaking curveball came and went, but early in games it showed above-average potential. Moss's changeup became a weapon for him at times, but like the rest of his stuff, it lacked the consistency for scouts to feel convicted about him as a starter. Furthermore, while Moss does have a four-year track record as a starter in the ACC, he has not pitched deep into the summer, and his delivery and frame also raise questions about his ability to start. Ultimately, Moss projects as very solid middle reliever, though he could end up developing into a back-of-the-rotation starter.
