Moore has been a force in September
HOUSTON -- The versatile Scott Moore has put himself in good position to find a job on the free-agent market this winter, thanks in part to a red-hot September with the Astros. Moore, who spent the first 3 1/2 months at Triple-A Oklahoma City, entered Tuesday leading the Major Leagues with a .448 batting average and .543 on-base percentage during the month (minimum of 35 plate appearances).

"He's had a great week," said interim manager Tony DeFrancesco, who managed Moore at Oklahoma City this year. "I think Scott's versatility and his ability to drive the ball are good."

Moore entered Tuesday hitting .261 with nine homers and 25 RBIs, and had reached base in 17 of his last 30 plate appearances. He has played third base, first base, second base, right field and left field for the Astros this year.

"As far as numbers go, I haven't thought about that, but I think I'm showing my versatility," the former first-round pick by the Tigers said. "I hope that brings some value to help the team, and obviously I would love to come back here."
