Chad Edward Moeller [MOE-ler] (born February 18, 1975 in Upland, California) is a Major League Baseball catcher in the Baltimore Orioles organization. He is the cousin of former MLB first baseman Chris Cron.
Moeller attended the University of Southern California (USC). In 1996, he was an All-Pac 10 selection and from 1994-1996 was teammates with current Astros infielder, Aaron Boone. He was drafted in the 7th round (187th overall) of the 1996 Major League Baseball Draft by the Minnesota Twins.
When he was with the Brewers, Moeller was used increasingly only for calling games with staff ace Ben Sheets. He did however hit for the cycle on April 27, 2004. He was the first Brewer to hit for the cycle at home, and the first since Paul Molitor did it on May 15, 1991 at Minnesota.
Just prior to the 2006 All-Star break, Moeller was designated for assignment by the Brewers, primarily due to his low batting average (.184). After clearing waivers he joined the Triple-A Nashville Sounds. Moeller began the 2007 season with the Cincinnati Reds. After splitting time between Cincinnati and the Triple-A Louisville Bats, he was traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers for cash considerations on August 11, 2007.
On November 27, 2007, Moeller signed a Minor League contract with an invitation to spring training with the Washington Nationals. He was released by the Nationals on March 10, 2008, and signed a minor league contract with the New York Yankees the same day. The Yankees purchased his contract on April 14 following injuries to Jorge Posada and José Molina. On April 25, 2008, he was designated for assignment because it had been thought that Posada would be able to play through his injury. Posada, however, was placed on the 15-day disabled list on April 28, and the Yankees added Moeller back to the active roster upon clearing assignment waivers on April 30. He remained on the active roster following Posada's return from the disabled list, but was again designated for assignment on July 31 following the acquisition of Iván Rodríguez. He cleared waivers and returned to Triple-A Scranton. While with the Yankees, Moeller played third and first base twice each, the first time in his career he played a position other than catcher. Moeller rejoined the Yankees on September 1, when the rosters expanded from 25 to 40. Moeller became a free agent after the season.
Moeller signed a minor league contract with the Baltimore Orioles on December 12, 2008, and made its Opening Day roster as a backup catcher. After batting .200 with a .259 on-base percentage in fifteen games, he was designated for assignment on May 29 when the Orioles promoted top catching prospect Matt Wieters from the Triple-A Norfolk Tides.  Moeller cleared waivers five days later and was assigned to the Tides. Moeller was recalled to Baltimore on August 7 when the Orioles traded catcher Gregg Zaun to the Tampa Bay Rays.
Moeller was signed to a minor league contract which included an invitation to spring training with the Baltimore Orioles on December 4, 2009.
