Rangers | Mitch Moreland leads offense

Thu, 21 May 2015 19:49:13 -0700

Texas Rangers 1B Mitch Moreland hit a solo home run and had two RBI in the Rangers 3-1 victory over the Boston Red Sox Thursday, May 21.

Fantasy Tip: Moreland ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) hit his third home run of the season, and two singles. Moreland is a career .260-hitter against right-handed pitchers, and he bumped up that average a touch against Red Sox righty Clay Buchholz.

Rangers | Mitch Moreland activated and in lineup

Wed, 13 May 2015 15:08:34 -0700

Texas Rangers 1B Mitch Moreland (elbow) was activated from the disabled list Wednesday, May 13, and he is playing first base and batting fifth against the Kansas City Royals.

Fantasy Tip: Allow Moreland ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) to catch up to speed for a game or two before utilizing him in FantasyScore contests. He is an upside add in deep mixed leagues, as he projects to see plenty of RBI opportunities and has shown solid power and contact skills in the past.

Rangers | Mitch Moreland to start rehab assignment

Fri, 08 May 2015 11:04:56 -0700

Texas Rangers 1B Mitch Moreland (elbow) will start a three-game rehab assignment with Triple-A Round Rock Saturday, May 9, and he'll likely come off the disabled list Wednesday, May 13. 1B Kyle Blanks is currently playing first base, but the team has talked to him about playing some outfield. Blanks still has minor league options, though.

Fantasy Tip: It's unclear exactly what the Rangers will do at first base when Moreland ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) returns, but you'd have to think he'll at least be on the strong side of a platoon with Blanks, who has hit well in a small sample size in his time in Texas. Moreland is an under-the-radar value play in the right matchups at FantasyScore.

Rangers | Mitch Moreland hits in cage

Tue, 05 May 2015 04:48:27 -0700

Texas Rangers 1B Mitch Moreland (elbow) hit in the batting cage on Monday, May 4, for the first time since undergoing elbow surgery last month.

Fantasy Tip: Moreland ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) hopes to be back by mid-May at the earliest, but will he have a position? Kyle Blanks ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is hitting .316 at the moment and could take away some playing time.

Rangers | Mitch Moreland going under knife

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 06:00:36 -0700

Texas Rangers 1B Mitch Moreland (elbow) will undergo surgery Wednesday, April 29, to remove loose bodies from his left elbow. "I'd probably miss more time two or three days at a time trying to wait it out than we would just than we would just going ahead and getting it out," Moreland said. "Being back in a couple of weeks, I think that's the plan going in and cleaning up the bone chips and being ready to go at that 15-day mark." 1B Kyle Blanks is likely to come up from Triple-A Round Rock.

Fantasy Tip: Blanks has good power, and now that he's out of San Diego and in the Arlington jet stream, he's a player to watch.

Rangers | Mitch Moreland may need surgery

Tue, 28 Apr 2015 15:03:12 -0700

Updating previous reports, Texas Rangers 1B Mitch Moreland (elbow) could need minor surgery to remove a loose body from his elbow. He first had the issue roughly two weeks ago and received anti-inflammatory medication and was held out for most of that week. Moreland has gone 5-for-15 over the last four games to raise his average to .304, though. If he has surgery, he'll likely be out for around 10 days while the stitches heal.

Fantasy Tip: Moreland ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) owners shouldn't be too worried, especially since his elbow issues didn't really affect his offensive performance lately. Adam Rosales ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) figures to benefit the most from increased playing time if Moreland has to sit out after surgery.

Rangers | Mitch Moreland scratched

Tue, 28 Apr 2015 14:47:15 -0700

Texas Rangers 1B Mitch Moreland (elbow) was scratched from the starting lineup Tuesday, April 28. 1B Adam Rosales gets the start in his place.

Fantasy Tip: Rosales ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has four hits in only 20 at-bats this year. His limited experience and at-bats make him a weak play for FantasyScore users against Seattle Mariners starter J.A. Happ.

Rangers | Mitch Moreland has elbow issues

Tue, 28 Apr 2015 13:45:55 -0700

Texas Rangers 1B Mitch Moreland (elbow) is dealing with some elbow problems, and he's visiting with Dr. Keith Meister Tuesday, April 28. He may be dealing with a bone chip.

Fantasy Tip: Moreland ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is in the starting lineup against Seattle Mariners starter J.A. Happ tonight, but he's not a strong FantasyScore play, especially while playing injured. Moreland also hit a meager .120 (3-for-25) in a small sample size against lefties in 2014.

Rangers | Mitch Moreland may need surgery

Sat, 18 Apr 2015 06:51:43 -0700

Texans Rangers 1B Mitch Moreland (elbow) may need minor surgery on his elbow that could sideline him for two to three weeks. The team is expected to know more about his status in a few days.

Fantasy Tip: Moreland ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) was scratched from the starting lineup Friday, because of the elbow, so owners should watch out for an update on his status. Owners on FantasyScore should avoid Moreland until more is known about his status.

Rangers | Mitch Moreland has sore elbow

Fri, 17 Apr 2015 16:55:02 -0700

Updating a previous report, Texas Rangers 1B Mitch Moreland (elbow) is dealing with a sore elbow, and he's being evaluated. However, the team isn't concerned that his injury is serious.

Fantasy Tip: Moreland ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) could easily return to the starting lineup tomorrow night. We wouldn't recommend that you start him at FantasyScore, though, as he'd be lined up to face Seattle Mariners ace Felix Hernandez.
