Description: Texas first baseman Mitch Moreland has opted to have season-ending ankle surgery. SOURCE: Jeff Wilson, Fort Worth Star-Telegram
Insight: The surgery is set for next Monday in North Carolina. It's a shame because Moreland would have had a chance to thrive without Prince Fielder (neck surgery) in the lineup. Brad Snyder and Carlos Pena will now be asked to carry the load at first base.
 
6/9/2014 4:43:00 PM
Description: Rangers first baseman Mitch Moreland will get a second opinion and hopes to have a less serious ankle surgery than reconstruction which would keep him out for three months.
Insight: If the less extensive work is done, Moreland (.246, 2 HR, 23 RBI) could return in 3-4 weeks. Donnie Murphy will continue to play 1B.
 
6/8/2014 1:50:00 PM
Description: Rangers first baseman Mitch Moreland needs left ankle surgery and will miss three months, according to Richard Durrett of espndallas.com.
Insight: Both of Texas' first basemen, Prince Fielder and Moreland, have suffered serious injuries this season, and Kendrys Morales is off the table after signing with the Twins Saturday. Corner infield prospect Joey Gallo, who has hit 61 homers in his last 169 games in the minors, was promoted to Double-A in the wake of Moreland's injury and he could be on the fast track to the majors.

3/18/2014 6:27:00 PM
Description: Rangers first baseman Mitch Moreland is out with tightness in his left oblique muscle, according to Gerry Fraley of the Dallas Morning News.
Insight: Moreland is in danger of missing the start of the regular season on March 31 against the Phillies. The 28-year-old is expected to serve as the Rangers' primary DH this season after batting .232 with 23 homers, 60 RBI and a .736 OPS in 147 games last season.
 
7/13/2013 10:49:00 PM

Description: Rangers first baseman Mitch Moreland has been activated for Friday after going 6-for-12 at Double-A Frisco during his rehab assignment.
Insight: Moreland was placed on the 15-day disabled list on June 6 due to a strained right hamstring. He was productive in his first 58 games batting .288 with 12 homers, 29 RBI and an .899 OPS.

Insight: Moreland was placed on the 15-day disabled list on June 6 due to a strained right hamstring. He was productive in his first 58 games batting .288 with 12 homers, 29 RBI and an .899 OPS. It will be good to get Berkman back to the DH role where he is less likely to get hurt.

Description: Barring any setbacks, Rangers first baseman Mitch Moreland should be able to return from the DL on June 21st against the Cardinals. SOURCE: Jeff Wilson, Fort Worth Star-Telegram
Insight: That's the first day Moreland is eligible to return. Moreland has been out with a strained hamstring and could begin a rehab stint as early as Monday. Moreland (.288, 12 HR, 29 RBI) is second on the club with a .561 slugging percentage in his first 58 games.
 
6/6/2013 5:12:00 PM
Description: Texas first baseman Mitch Moreland has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a right hamstring strain.
Insight: Moreland suffered the injury during Wednesday's game. On the bright side, Texas won't have to work hard to find a spot for Jurickson Profar if Ian Kinsler returns from his rib cage strain anytime soon; Kinsler can play first base, with Profar staying at second. According to Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News, Rangers manager Ron Washington said he expects to have Moreland back in the minimum amount of time, so Moreland might actually return before Kinsler.
