Red Sox's Mitch Moreland: Sets up home batting cage
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moreland posted an image of his new batting cage at home on Instagram.

Moreland, like all baseball players, is doing what he needs to do to stay in shape while MLB is delayed until a future date. The 34-year-old Moreland is expected to serve as the left-handed component in a platoon at first base with Michael Chavis. In a part-time role last season due to injury, Moreland swatted 19 home runs, 17 doubles and knocked in 58 while posting a career-high .835 OPS runs over 91 games.

Red Sox's Mitch Moreland: Returns to first base
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moreland (hamstring) will play first base Tuesday against the Cardinals, Christopher Smith of The Springfield Republican reports.

Moreland has been dealing with a tight hamstring since the start of the month, though it wasn't considered too serious and he was able to serve as the designated hitter twice over the weekend. Back in the field more than two weeks before the start of the regular season, he should be good to go for Opening Day.

Red Sox's Mitch Moreland: Platoon role expected
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moreland (knee) will primarily be used at first base when the Red Sox face right-handed starters, Anthony Castrovince of MLB.com reports.

Moreland, who started a second straight game Sunday as Boston's designated hitter, will reprise the role he held last season when 82 percent of his 335 plate appearances came against righties. When a lefty is scheduled, Michael Chavis will slide over from second base while Jose Peraza slots in at second. The knee injury may be behind him, but until he starts in the field, Moreland is considered day-to-day.

Red Sox's Mitch Moreland: At designated hitter again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moreland (hamstring) is batting fifth as the designated hitter in Sunday's Grapefruit League game against the Twins.

Moreland returned to the lineup as the DH for Saturday's contest and will do so again Sunday after going 1-for-2 with a walk and a run scored. The 34-year-old picked up the hamstring injury last weekend, but it shouldn't impact his availability for Opening Day as he's set to begin the season at first base for the Red Sox.

Red Sox's Mitch Moreland: Serving as designated hitter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moreland (hamstring) will serve as the designated hitter in Saturday's split-squad game against the Blue Jays, according to Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe.

Moreland is still not ready to occupy a defensive position, but he will see at-bats Saturday for the first time since March 1. As long as he avoids any setbacks, he should be back at first base soon and be at 100 percent before Opening Day.

Red Sox's Mitch Moreland: Expected to hit Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moreland (hamstring) will be the designated hitter Saturday against the Blue Jays, Julian McWilliams of The Boston Globe reports.

Moreland left Sunday's game against the Braves with hamstring tightness, though the Red Sox called his removal precautionary. He should still have plenty of time to get ready by Opening Day, barring setbacks.

Red Sox's Mitch Moreland: Hamstring issue likely not serious
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moreland's (hamstring) exit from Sunday's Grapefruit League game against the Braves was out of an abundance of caution, and the injury doesn't appear to be serious, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

Moreland appeared to suffer the injury while playing first base during the first inning of Sunday's contest, but his exit was mainly a measure to prevent a more serious issue. While the 34-year-old isn't in the lineup against the Tigers on Monday, it wouldn't be surprising to see him return to the starting lineup in the near future, barring any setbacks.

Red Sox's Mitch Moreland: Exits with hamstring tightness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moreland was pulled from Sunday's Grapefruit League game against the Braves with right hamstring tightness, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

The 34-year-old received the start at first base and played the field during the top of the first inning; that's apparently when he sustained the injury since he was replaced by a pinch hitter in the bottom of the frame. Moreland's exit may be precautionary, but he's likely to take at least a few days off and should have his status updated sometime this week.

Red Sox's Mitch Moreland: Reaches deal with Red Sox
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moreland signed a one-year, $3 million deal with the Red Sox on Tuesday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

Moreland will remain in Boston, where he finished his third season with the club hitting .252/.328/.507 with 19 home runs and 58 RBI in 335 plate appearances throughout 2019. The left-handed hitting first baseman only started eight contests against southpaws, compared to 68 against righties. Michael Chavis will likely continue to accompany Moreland in a platoon role to begin the season. The deal includes a salary of $2.5 million in 2020 with a $3 million club option or a $500,000 buyout for 2021. Denyi Reyes was designated for assignment in a corresponding move.

Red Sox's Mitch Moreland: Hits three-run shot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moreland went 3-for-4 with a three-run homer in Friday's win over the Yankees.

Moreland had half of his team's six hits and drove in half of Boston's six runs. It was a big day at the plate for the slugger, who hadn't recorded a hit since Aug. 28, in part due to a run of off days against southpaws. The veteran now has 15 homers in 268 plate appearances, matching his total in 459 plate appearances from last season.
