Mitch Moreland to open Rangers season on DL?

While clubs across baseball are worried about their pitchers’ arms falling off, the Rangers are just hoping to put people on the field or at the plate. Coming in the same news piece that said Elvis Andrus was going to be shut down for at least four days, Evan Grant also speculates that Mitch Moreland will begin the season on the Rangers’ Disabled List. The DH/1B/OF suffered...

Moreland ready to embrace new role with Rangers

No Texas Rangers player has been impacted more by the offseason than Mitch Moreland. Moreland, the primary first baseman for the Rangers last season, lost that role when the club traded for Prince Fielder. A chance at lots of playing time in the outfield went away when the Rangers signed free agent Shin-Soo Choo. Now Moreland is preparing for a season in which he'll be vying...

Mitch Moreland or Chris Davis, who would you rather have on your team?

In a recent commentary about Mitch Moreland, our man Clifford on the West Coast offered his opinions. When he does, people should take note…. Too bad you included the stip about having a first baseman who doesn’t hit homeruns. The Rangers could have kept one who not only wound up hitting for average, but looks as if he’ll hit 60 homers someday barring injury (Chris Davis) ...

Mitch Moreland’s ascent to a high water mark of .296 has been followed by a dip below .260. What is with this guy?

As usual, Mitch Moreland’s ascent to a high water mark of .296 has been followed by a dip below .260 following last night’s game. I’m sure his slugging percentage has plunged considerably as well during his latest funk that’s seen him go 4 for 33 since returning from the DL. I kept saying that the Rangers needed to get Prince Fielder and plant him on first base until he rots...

Moreland's hot hitting helps fire up Rangers

ARLINGTON, Texas Mitch Moreland didn't change anything when he struggled the first few weeks of the season, and he's not changing anything now that he's one of the Rangers' hottest hitters. Moreland went 3-for-3 with a walk in Tuesday's 10-6 win over the White Sox. Two of the hits went to the opposite field, a good sign for the left-handed Moreland. All three...

Moreland looking for improvement vs. lefties

NORTH RICHLAND HILLS Mitch Moreland is well aware of his struggles against left-handed pitching over his first three years with the Texas Rangers. Moreland has spent his offseason doing everything he can to try and make it better by working on his swing against left-handers at home in Alabama.

Moreland comes alive for the first time

ARLINGTON, Texas One sure way to keep from hitting the ball right at people is to hit it over the fence. That's the tactic the Rangers first baseman Mitch Moreland took Wednesday night to break out of a slump. Moreland sent a blast 410 feet over the right field wall in the sixth inning of a 7-3 win over the Yankees. The homer was his second hit of the night to break out of...
