Rangers' Mitch Moreland makes pinch-hit appearance Wednesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Rangers first baseman Mitch Moreland (elbow) made a pinch-hit appearance Wednesday, going 0 for 1 in his team's 8-5 loss to the Diamondbacks.

Moreland has been limited by an elbow injury in recent days, and he wasn't in the starting lineup Wednesday as expected. However, he did come to the plate with a man on first and one out in the seventh inning but hit into a double play. The team has been unable to use a designated hitter while in a National League park this week, but Moreland could be back in the lineup Friday when the team opens a series against the Angels in Anaheim.

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."
