Moreland went 2-for-4 with a walk-off solo homer in Friday's game against the Royals.

EDGE Analysis

Moreland's game-winning in the bottom of the ninth was his 17th of the season and put him on pace to set a career high in dingers this year. The first baseman has put on a fireworks show of later, blasting six longballs in his last 12 games. Moreland's OPS is up to .777, its second-best mark of 2016, and the best since mid-April.

Moreland went 2-for-3 with a pair of solo homers in Thursday's 3-2 win over the Royals.

EDGE Analysis

He and Rougned Odor accounted for all three Rangers runs with solo shots off Royals starter Yordano Ventura, and it was just enough for a win. Moreland went through a bad power slump for the last third of June and the first half of July, but he's now slugged five long balls in his last 10 games (eight starts).

Moreland is out of the lineup Wednesday against the A's.

EDGE Analysis

Moreland and top prospect Joey Gallo will each take a seat Wednesday with lefty Sean Manaea on the hill for the A's. He has a .732 OPS against righties and a .695 OPS against lefties, neither of which is all that impressive for a first baseman.

Moreland is out of the lineup for Friday's game against the Royals.

EDGE Analysis

With Texas facing lefty Danny Duffy on Friday, Moreland will take a seat as manager Jeff Banister employs a heavily right-handed lineup. Ryan Rua will slide down to take over at first base for Friday's series opener.

Moreland homered, a solo shot, in a 2-for-3 game in Monday's loss to the Angels.

EDGE Analysis

Moreland has sat out five of the past 10 games and was in a 10-for-45 funk dating back to June 17 before Monday's breakout performance,. His last multi-hit game game on June 16 and his last home run came on June 13, so he badly needed a night like this. Part of his time on the bench can be blamed on the Rangers playing in a National League stadium out of the break, but he is hitting a brutal .217/.254/.383 against left-handed pitching and will likely ride the pine against them as often as is feasible the rest of the way.

Moreland is out of the lineup Sunday against the Cubs, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Rangers don't have the DH spot available while playing in a National League park, so manager Jeff Banister will keep Prince Fielder in his lineup over Moreland. It's the second time in three games that Moreland has sat out.

Moreland is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Cubs, according to Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

EDGE Analysis

Moreland's absence from the lineup should not come as much of a surprise, as he started just one of the Rangers' previous eight games. However, the Rangers' lineup -- albeit one that does not include a DH -- confirms that he will continue to play a role off the bench as the second half begins.

EDGE Analysis

Moreland served as a pinch hitter in Friday's win over Minnesota, but he sat out each of the three games prior while battling a nagging calf issue. Having moved past the injury, he'll return to the lineup, batting eighth and manning first base.
