ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- The Oakland Athletics have reinstated first baseman Brandon Moss from the paternity list and optioned Shane Peterson to Triple-A Sacramento.

Moss was batting .283 with 13 RBIs in 13 games when he was placed on the list Tuesday for the birth of his second son, Brody.

Peterson was recalled from Sacramento on Tuesday and went 1 for 7 with an RBI in two starts at first base.

Oakland made the moves before Friday night's game against Tampa Bay.
