Mitch Moreland (elbow) might not start another game for the Rangers until Friday.

Advice: Moreland is battling some elbow discomfort and the Rangers have a three-game series Tuesday-Thursday in Arizona, a National League park. Prince Fielder figures to start all three of those games at first base. Moreland should be available off the bench.

Mitch Moreland (elbow) went 1-for-2 with an RBI on Sunday afternoon against the Mariners.

Advice: Moreland was held out of the starting lineup due to an elbow injury and because the M's were starting a left-hander, but he entered the game late and made an impact in the extra-innings loss for Texas. Moreland, who's sporting a decent .837 OPS, should be in the Rangers' starting lineup on Tuesday night in Arizona.

Mitch Moreland (elbow) is not in the Rangers' starting lineup on Saturday night.

Advice: But he was able to take pregame batting practice, so that's a good early indication that he will be able to avoid minor elbow surgery. Shin-Soo Choo is serving as the designated hitter for Texas on Saturday against the Mariners and Carlos Peguero is in right field. Moreland can be considered day-to-day.

Mitch Moreland could require minor elbow surgery which would sideline him for 2-to-3 weeks.

Advice: Moreland was scratched from Friday's lineup due to a sore elbow and went for further examination. The Rangers won't make a decision on his status for a few days while they gather additional information, but it's safe to say that Moreland won't return to the lineup any time soon.

Mitch Moreland was scratched from the Rangers starting lineup on Friday due to a sore elbow.

Advice: It's likely that he'll head for an MRI to see what's going on, but the Rangers don't believe that it's a major concern just yet. The team should have an update on his status after any exams.
