Moreland, who's hitting .272/.326/.513 with 10 home runs this season, hasn't played since suffering a hamstring injury on June 19. In his absence, Ranger first baseman -- Michael Young, primarily -- have managed to hit just .264/.297/.355, so Moreland's return figures to be a boon to the struggling Texas offense.
In order to make room on the active roster, the Rangers have optioned outfielder Leonys Martin back to Triple-A Round Rock.
