Moreland will have his knee examined Tuesday to see if surgery is needed, Rob Bradford of WEEI.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Moreland said the broken toe he sustained back in June led to a knee problem towards the end of the season, and while he was able to play through the pain, he'll have it checked out now that the Red Sox have been eliminated from the playoffs. There should be a clearer idea regarding his status following Tuesday's evaluation.

Moreland isn't in the lineup for Sunday's matchup against Houston.

Moreland slashed .246/.326/.443 and hit 22 home runs over 149 games, marking his third straight season in which he's hit at least 20 homers. Sam Travis will start at first in his place.

Moreland went 1-for-3 with a solo homer in Thursday's 12-2 loss to Houston.

EDGE Analysis

Moreland has shown remarkable consistency, swatting either 22 or 23 home runs in four of the past five seasons now that he's up to 22 in 2017. He's also over the 70-run mark for the first time in his career with 71 and is three RBI short of reaching 80 for only the second time.

Moreland is not in the lineup for Monday's game against the Blue Jays, Tim Britton of The Providence Journal reports.

EDGE Analysis

As per usual, Moreland will get the day off with a lefty (Brett Anderson) toeing the rubber for the opposition. Moreland has struggled altogether in September, hitting just .171/.229/.316 in 76 at-bats, so he could lose out on some opportunities in the last week with Eduardo Nunez back from a knee injury. In his place, Hanley Ramirez will start at first base and bat cleanup.

Moreland went 2-for-5 with a three-run home run in Saturday's win over the Reds.

EDGE Analysis

Moreland took Robert Stephenson yard in the sixth inning for his 20th home run of the season. He was batting just .164/.230/.284 for the month of September coming into Saturday's game, but Moreland's platoon role appears safe heading into the postseason. While the 32-year-old's season numbers don't jump off the page, his counting totals have been useful in deeper formats.

Moreland went 3-for-7 with a walk, a home run, two RBI and three runs scored in Friday's 13-6 extra-inning win over the Rays.

EDGE Analysis

With Hanley Ramirez (biceps) injured again, Moreland should get ample at-bats as Boston's everyday first baseman. Particularly as the Red Sox battle it out in the AL East. The left-handed hitting Moreland has soldiered on through injuries of his own this season, reaching a career-high in plate appearances (529). Because the Red Sox are 27th in MLB with 153 home runs and have had difficulty scoring runs, Moreland's 19 homers and 71 RBI -- ranking third on the team in each category -- have been significant. He should continue to hit up in the order near the team's best hitters, generating more RBI opportunities over the final two weeks.
