Rangers' Mitch Moreland likely on bench until Friday
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Rangers designated hitter Mitch Moreland likely won't be in the team's starting lineup for most of this week. 

While Moreland has been bothered by loose bodies in his elbow, his benching isn't injury-related. The Rangers will be playing interleague games at Arizona, so the team won't be using a DH. Prince Fielder will be at first base for the games, per the Star Telegram

Rangers' Prince Fielder, Mitch Moreland to split DH duties this year
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Rangers first baseman Prince Fielder and designated hitter Mitch Moreland will be used interchangeably on defense this season, reports MLB.com. Fielder was slated as the designated hitter Sunday for the sixth time, one less than he's started at first.

"Prince Fielder is our first baseman and Mitch Moreland plays first base," manager Jeff Banister said. "I will use both as needed. I see both players playing. I haven't seen enough of Mitch to evaluate his defense but I'm going to continue to play both at first base and both will get time at DH."

Banister wants to avoid Fielder becoming exclusively a DH.

"His energy level and who he is, we want to keep him engaged," Banister said. "DH is a challenging spot to perform in anyway if you're used to being in the field. The ability to play defense and stay engaged creates an energy. I don't want any of these guys [being a full-time DH] unless we find a David Ortiz-type of guy."

Rangers' Mitch Moreland a no-go Saturday in Seattle
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Rangers designated hitter Mitch Moreland took early batting practice, but was held out of Saturday's lineup against Seattle with a left elbow injury, per the Fort Worth Star-Telegram

Moreland sat out of Friday's game against the Mariners with a sore elbow that could require minor surgery, according to an earlier report from MLB.com. The team will know more about his status in the coming days.

"There is some soreness still, but it's not locking up," Moreland said to the Dallas Morning News. "If it continues to lock up, then the answer is obvious. But if there are no issues with it, there are no reasons in my mind to mess with it. I can deal with soreness. You deal with a lot of soreness throughout the year."

Shin-Soo Choo will serve as a designated hitter and bat fifth, while Carlos Peguero will fill in in right field and bat seventh against Mariners ace Felix Hernandez.

Report: Rangers' Moreland could opt for surgery, miss 2-3 weeks
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Rangers designated hitter Mitch Moreland could require minor surgery on his left elbow -- a procedure that would keep him sidelined for two-to-three weeks, according to MLB.com on Saturday. The Rangers are expected to know more about his status in the coming days. 

Moreland has played in nine of the Texas' 11 games this season, but sat out Friday with the issue. He is hitting .259 with one home run, two doubles and five RBI.
