Moreland is out of the lineup Sunday against Oakland, Stefan Stevenson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ross Detwiler, a southpaw, is slated to start for the A's, so Ryan Rua will get the nod to start at first base in an effort to fill the lineup with right-handed hitters. Moreland has struggled to produce at the plate recently, as he's gone just 2-for-23 with eight strikeouts over the last seven games.
