Moreland is hitting .444 (4-for-9) with two doubles, two RBI and a run across his first four Cactus League games.

The projected everyday designated hitter is offering a glimpse of how focusing solely on the bat during the coming season may boost his production, as Moreland has hit safely in three of his first four games. The veteran owns a career .252/.320/.448 slash, so while the small-sample numbers will naturally be subject to decline over time, they're relatively encouraging coming on the heels of Moreland's solid .265/.342/.551 combined line with the Red Sox and Padres over 152 plate appearances in 2020.
