What to do with Brandon Moss?

The often forgotten about Brandon Moss is hitting over .300 in July with 5 HRs coming in his last 30 at-bats. Moss, on the year, has 16 HR's and and OPS of .805, which is actually impressive considering the horribly average start he had to begin the season at AAA. 

The question is, if he continues to produce, assuming Milledge/Jones/Tabata/Cutch all stay healthy, what do we do with Moss?

He's still only 26. He has had enough ML at-bats to most likely categorize him as a bust, but every guy is different. We also have to consider (Though we hear this sort of thing from every player), that Moss changed his stance/approach at the plate and credits much of his recent success to that. If this is a circumstance where that's legit, Moss could be a great 4th outfielder or long shot starter.

Trade him at the deadline? Strong AAA numbers will be attractive to some teams, especially if he's a side piece of a deal, instead of a centerpiece, much like he was when he was traded to the Pirates.

Trade/Cut Church and make Moss the new 4th outfielder? I'd prefer this, as I see Moss as a younger, cheaper Church and well, wouldn't we rather have a younger/cheaper Church than an older/more expensive Church?

Completely disregard Moss? Basically, we accept that he's an AAA player and don't give him much thought unless an outfielder or Jones has an extended injury.

I'm curious what everyone's thoughts are on Moss, if any.
