Red Sox's Mitch Moreland: Sitting vs. southpaw
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moreland is not starting Wednesday against the Rays, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

As per usual, Moreland will head to the bench with a left-hander in Blake Snell starting for the opposition. In his place, Michael Chavis is starting at first base and hitting sixth.

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

Moreland (knee) is in the lineup Tuesday against the Rays, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

Moreland sat for the series opener against Tampa Bay while dealing with a knee issue, but he'll return to first base just one day later. The 34-year-old has recorded hits in his past four contests, including a two-homer performance Sunday.

Red Sox's Mitch Moreland: Dealing with knee issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moreland (knee) was not available for Monday's game but manager Ron Roenicke said he hopes Moreland will be available Tuesday, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.

Roenicke entered the game knowing he would not use Moreland after the first baseman reported that his knee was barking. While the skipper said Rafael Devers (ankle) is doubtful for Tuesday, he seemed more optimistic about Moreland's chances of playing against Andrew Kittredge and the Rays.

Red Sox's Mitch Moreland: On bench against southpaw
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moreland isn't in the lineup Monday against the Rays.

Moreland homered twice in Sunday's series finale against the Blue Jays, but he'll sit against the Rays with left-hander Ryan Yarbrough on the mound. Michael Chavis will step in at first base and bat fifth.

Red Sox's Mitch Moreland: Supplies winning power
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moreland went 2-for-4 with two home runs, three RBI and two runs scored Sunday against the Blue Jays.

Moreland went yard twice, bringing his season total to six. His first was a solo shot that came in the sixth inning, with his second a walk-off two-run blast in the bottom of the ninth frame. Moreland has provided impressive power overall this season, currently maintaining a .613 ISO through 33 plate appearances.

Red Sox's Mitch Moreland: Homers again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moreland went 1-for-3 with a walk, a home run and three RBI in Friday's 5-3 win over the Blue Jays.

Moreland, who starts against right-handers only, bashed his fourth home run in a mere 24 at-bats. That's a pace greater than any of the league's home run leaders. Boston manager Ron Roenicke has not wavered in his deployment of the left-handed-hitting first baseman, so fantasy owners will need to remain vigilant for opportunities when the Red Sox face right-handers.

Red Sox's Mitch Moreland: Sitting vs. left-hander
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moreland is not starting Wednesday against the Rays, Christopher Smith of The Springfield Republican reports.

Moreland will retreat to the bench for Wednesday's series finale with a left-hander (Ryan Yarbrough) toeing the rubber for the opposition. The veteran slugger is 6-for-21 (.286) with three home runs and a double through seven appearances this season.

Red Sox's Mitch Moreland: Smacks third homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moreland went 1-for-2 with a solo home run Tuesday against the Rays.

Moreland was pinch-hit for in the sixth inning when southpaw Aaron Loup took the mound. However, he made the most of the opportunity he received, taking Charlie Morton deep for his third home run of the season in the second frame. Half of Moreland's hits this season half left the yard, and he's slugging .762 through 21 plate appearances.

Red Sox's Mitch Moreland: Resting against lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moreland is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Yankees.

Southpaw James Paxton is on the mound for the Yankees in the series finale, so the lefty-hitting Moreland will give way to platoon partner Michael Chavis at first base. Moreland has gotten off to a nice start to the abbreviated 60-game season, going 5-for-18 with two home runs, a double and five RBI.

August 1, 2020 06:28 PM
Red Sox's Mitch Moreland: Back in action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moreland (leg) will return to the lineup Saturday against the Yankees.

Moreland missed Thursday's game due to leg soreness and remained out Friday, though that could have been due to the Yankees starting southpaw Jordan Montgomery rather than the injury. He's back in action Saturday with righty Masahiro Tanaka on the mound for New York.

Red Sox's Mitch Moreland: Remains out against lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moreland (leg) is not in the lineup Friday against the Yankees, Christopher Smith of The Springfield Republican reports.

Moreland was unavailable Thursday due to leg soreness, though he may have been on the bench regardless Friday with left-hander Jordan Montgomery pitching for New York. Michael Chavis receives another start at first base for the Red Sox.

Red Sox's Mitch Moreland: Dealing with leg soreness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moreland wasn't available off the bench in Thursday's win over the Mets due to leg soreness, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.

After the victory, manager Ron Roenicke said that the first baseman was not available because "his legs are just barking." The quote from the Boston skipper doesn't give much insight into whether or not Moreland will be available to play in Friday's series opener against the Yankees. Even if the 34-year old is ready to go Friday, he will likely not be among Boston's starting nine with southpaw Jordan Montgomery slated to start for New York.

Red Sox's Mitch Moreland: Sitting vs. southpaw
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moreland is not starting Thursday against the Mets, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

As per usual, Moreland will retreat to the bench with a southpaw in Steven Matz starting for the Mets. Michael Chavis is starting at first base in place of Moreland in this one.

July 28, 2020 03:56 PM
Red Sox's Mitch Moreland: On bench against lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moreland is not in the lineup Tuesday against lefty David Peterson and the Mets, Ian Browne of MLB.com reports.

Moreland has now been on the bench against all three southpaws the Red Sox have faced this season. As with the first two games, Michael Chavis will get the nod at first base.

Red Sox's Mitch Moreland: Drives in two versus Mets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moreland went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and an RBI single in Monday's 7-4 loss to the Mets.

Moreland got the Red Sox on the board with a fourth-inning homer against Mets starter Michael Wacha. The first baseman then drove in Rafael Devers with an eighth-inning single. Moreland has two homers and three RBI in two games so far, playing strictly against right-handed pitchers.

Red Sox's Mitch Moreland: Sitting versus left-hander
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moreland isn't in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Orioles.

The 34-year-old will sit for the second time in the opening series with southpaw Wade LeBlanc taking the mound for Baltimore. Moreland went 1-for-4 with a solo home run Saturday and should return to the starting nine Monday against Mets righty Michael Wacha.

July 24, 2020 03:56 PM
Red Sox's Mitch Moreland: On bench versus lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moreland is out of the lineup for Friday's season opener against the Orioles, Ian Browne of MLB.com reports.

The veteran slugger will be serving as Boston's primary first baseman this season, but he's not starting Opening Day with southpaw Tommy Milone pitching for Baltimore. Moreland should be in the lineup Saturday against right-hander Alex Cobb.

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.
