Moreland went 1-for-3 with his third home run of the season in Boston's 8-3 loss to Oakland on Thursday.

Moreland's been fighting it at the plate of late, enduring a 1-for-19 stretch before collecting three hits in the last two games. He's the only Red Sox player to play every game this season and is on pace for a career-high 673 plate appearances. His previous high was 518. As it looks like Hanley Ramirez won't be available to play the field any time soon due to various arm and shoulder aches, the Red Sox might want to consider calling up Sam Travis from Triple-A Pawtucket to spell Moreland. Travis is starting to break out of an early-season swoon, hitting .368 with a 1.042 OPS since the start of May.
