Mitch Moreland to begin baseball activities on Saturday

Mitch Moreland (quadriceps) will begin baseball activities Saturday, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports.

Fantasy Impact

Moreland is set to begin baseball activities for the first time since hitting the injured list with a right quad strain June 8. Moreland was supposed to work out on the field before Friday’s game but was pushed back a day due to wet field conditions at Fenway Park.

Mitch Moreland lands back on the IL with a quad injury

Red Sox first baseman Mitch Moreland was placed on the 10-day injured list with a quad injury on Saturday after leaving Friday night's game against the Rays with quad tightness. Infielder Marco Hernandez was recalled from Pawtucket to take Moreland's place on the roster. Red Sox beat writer Chris Cotillo added on Twitter that the "Moreland injury could be at least semi-serious. He’s meeting with doctors and undergoing tests today. Cora doesn’t think quad is torn, but this could be an extended absence."

Fantasy Impact

Friday was Moreland's first game back from the injured list after dealing with a back injury, and he was not even able to make it through his first game before leaving with a new injury. Cotillo's report on Twitter seems to indicate that this could be a significant injury, rather than just tightness that would result in the minimum stay on the 10-day injured list. Michael Chavis will likely handle the bulk of the first base duties in Moreland's absence.

Mitch Moreland activated from IL; batting fifth Friday

Mitch Moreland has been activated from the injured list and is batting fifth and playing first base for the Red Sox on Friday against the Rays.

Fantasy Impact

Moreland missed just more than the minimum time with his lower-back injury, and looks ready to go. With J.D. Martinez battling back spasms, the Red Sox offense needs some thump. With 13 homers, Moreland should provide just that, and should go back to playing most days against righties.

Mitch Moreland (back) placed on 10-day IL

The Red Sox have placed Mitch Moreland on the 10-day injured list with a low back strain, retroactive to May 26.

Fantasy Impact

Moreland had missed a few games with a knee bruise, so the back strain diagnosis is a bit curious. It's unclear how long Moreland will need to miss, but in his absence, Steve Pearce should see increased playing time at first base.

Mitch Moreland (knee) absent from Tuesday's lineup

Mitch Moreland (knee) is sitting on Tuesday versus Cleveland.

Fantasy Impact

Moreland has been battling a bruised knee for a couple of days now but it's considered a minor issue. Steve Pearce is starting at first base in his absence tonight.
