Rangers 1B Moreland out three months

The SportsXchange

Texas Rangers first baseman Mitch Moreland will be sidelined for about three months due to left ankle surgery.

Moreland's ankle has been bothering him since the start of the season. He has had injections and other treatments but has not been able to eliminate the pain.

Moreland recently took over at first base when Prince Fielder was deemed out for the season to have neck surgery.

Moreland, 28, is batting .246 with two home runs and 23 RBIs this season. In 2013, he had a career-high 23 home runs.
