Rangers | Mitch Moreland to undergo ankle surgery Wednesday

Texas Rangers 1B Mitch Moreland (ankle) will undergo left ankle surgery Wednesday, June 11, and is expected to be sidelined for three months. "I'm doing everything I can and trying to battle through it, but it's to the point where it's affecting me trying to go out and play," he said. "It's hurting pretty bad. The surgery, I tried to fight it off until the end of the year. I knew I was going to have to have surgery. They told me you can do everything you can to try to get to the end of the year. I can't do it any more. I'm going to try to get back healthy and get ready to go."

Fantasy Tip: INF Donnie Murphy will handle first base for the immediate future. 1B/OF Jim Adduci (finger) would have been another internal option but he jammed his finger in a rehab game Saturday, June 7. General manager Jon Daniels said the team will not promote 1B/3B Joey Gallo from Class A Myrtle Beach.
