Moreland is not in the lineup for Friday's game against Houston.

EDGE Analysis

Moreland will sit for the second straight game after starting the previous six contests. Ryan Rua will once again get the start at first base while batting sixth. With the team facing left-hander Dallas Keuchel, it is not a shock that Moreland is out of the lineup, as he will likely be back at first Saturday with right-hander Dough Fister on the mound.

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

EDGE Analysis

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).
