Damian Joseph Moss (born November 24, 1976 in Darlinghurst, Australia) is a Major League Baseball left-handed pitcher for the Colorado Rockies organization.


After making his major league debut on April 26, 2001, with the Atlanta Braves, Moss would also spend the 2002 season in Atlanta. Moss split the 2003 season with the San Francisco Giants and Baltimore Orioles before landing with the Tampa Bay Devil Rays, where he played in 2004. While Moss excelled in his first season with the Braves, he has subsequently struggled with inconsistency and poor control.

Moss has been traded twice, first from the Braves to the Giants with Merkin Valdéz for Russ Ortiz, and then, at the 2003 trading deadline, from the Giants to the Orioles with Kurt Ainsworth and Ryan Hannaman for Sidney Ponson. Moss was suspended on April 5, 2005, while in the minor leagues for steroid use. He spent the entire season with the Triple A Tacoma Rainers, the Triple-A affiliate of the Seattle Mariners. Despite a solid season, he was not called up to the majors.

On May 12, 2006, Moss was signed by the Long Island Ducks of the independent Atlantic League. Moss was signed by the Atlanta Braves, but they released him after just three starts in the minors. (1-2, 10.12 ERA) Moss joined the Mayaguez Indios for the 2006/2007 Winter League season in Puerto Rico.

Though a non-roster invitee for the San Francisco Giants during 2007 spring training, Moss opted to leave camp on February 18 for personal reasons, thereby moving to voluntarily retirement status. Moss signed a minor league contract with the Atlanta Braves on February 14, 2008. Moss began the season as a starting pitcher for the Braves' Triple-A affiliate before being demoted to Double-A in June. He became a free agent at the end of the season.
