Moreland is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Royals, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

EDGE Analysis

Moreland is hitless in his past three games, and with southpaw Matthew Strahm taking the hill for Kansas City, he'll hit the bench for a night off. Sam Travis will take over at first base to replace him for the evening.

Moreland is dealing with a fractured left big toe but intends to play through the injury, Jason Mastrodonato of the Boston Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

Moreland is back in the lineup Thursday after taking a day off Wednesday, but it seems like he's still not at 100 percent and won't be for some time. "It's one of those things you can't do a lot for," the first baseman commented. "Just try to make it comfortable until it's gone." He'll continue to be the primary first baseman for Boston, although it wouldn't be too surprising if he gets a few extra days off in order to limit the amount of pain he experiences.

Moreland (toe) is back in the lineup Thursday against the Phillies, Jason Mastrodonato of the Boston Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

Moreland was held out of action Wednesday after he continued to be plagued by toe soreness, but it seems like the night off was enough to get him back to full strength. He'll resume his normal role at first base and in the cleanup spot between Mookie Betts and Andrew Benintendi.

Moreland is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Phillies due to soreness in his left big toe, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

EDGE Analysis

Apparently Moreland's mobility was restricted and he woke up with some soreness after getting hit by a pitch in Tuesday's game. It doesn't appear to be anything more than a day-to-day situation at this point, though his status will be updated as more information is available. Hanley Ramirez is starting in his place for Wednesday's contest.

Moreland is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Phillies, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

EDGE Analysis

Though manager John Farrell previously indicated that Moreland would be in the lineup at first base for the Red Sox's two games in Philadelphia, the bench boss decided to reverse course and prioritize offense over defense by starting Hanley Ramirez at the position. Moreland could still pick up an at-bat or two during the contest as a pinch-hitter or late-inning defensive replacement for Ramirez.

Moreland went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, his ninth blast of the year, in Tuesday's 4-3 win over the Phillies.

EDGE Analysis

He's working on an eight-game hitting streak, during which Moreland is slashing .406/.500/.750 with three homers, eight RBI and eight runs. With Hanley Ramirez still stuck at DH due to his balky shoulder, Moreland should remains a fixture in the Boston lineup at first base for the foreseeable future,

Moreland went 3-for-4 with a double, a home run, two runs scored and two RBI in Friday's 5-3 win over the Tigers.

EDGE Analysis

It's his second homer in his last three games and eighth of the year, as Moreland continues to supply the Red Sox with a steady stick against right-handed pitching. The 31-year-old's numbers aren't necessarily all that impressive compared to some of the offensive explosions happening in 2017, but Moreland's .858 OPS would be a career high if he can keep it up.

Moreland is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Yankees, Scott Lauber of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Manager John Farrell will rest multiple regulars with lefty CC Sabathia on the hill for the opposition, as Moreland will be joined on the bench by Andrew Benintendi and Pablo Sandoval. Moreland has struggled against left-handed pitching throughout his career, but has shown slight improvement this season, posting a .417 on-base percentage over a limited sample.

Moreland is not in the lineup Thursday against the Orioles, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

EDGE Analysis

Moreland will head to the bench as the Orioles send southpaw Wade Miley to the mound for Thursday's series opener. Sam Travis will draw the start at first base in his stead, a trend that is expected to continue when the Red Sox face left-handed pitchers.

Moreland is out of the lineup Tuesday against the White Sox, Scott Lauber of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

With the left-handed Jose Quintana taking the mound for the White Sox, Boston will send Moreland to the bench and start Sam Travis at first base. Although Moreland is hitting .271/.369/.453 this season, he'll likely continue sharing time with Travis when the Red Sox face a southpaw.
