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

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 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.

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.

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.
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.

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

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.
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.
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.
