Mitch Moreland to start the season in a platoon

Mitch Moreland (knee) will primarily be used at first base when the Red Sox face right-handed starters, Anthony Castrovince of MLB.com reports.

Fantasy Impact

Moreland will once again primarily be limited to facing right-handed pitchers. Last season, 82% of his 335 plate appearances came against righties. When Moreland is off, Michael Chavis will face lefties, and Jose Peraza will play second base. Moreland is not worth drafting in standard leagues unless he gains a full-time role.

Mitch Moreland (hamstring) is expected to return to Grapefruit League action Saturday according to Julian McWilliams of the Boston Globe.

Fantasy Impact

Moreland had to be pulled from a game on Sunday against the Braves due to a tight hamstring. The Red Sox are being cautious and Moreland should be ready to go for Opening Day as long as he has no setbacks.

Mitch Moreland gets pulled for hamstring tightness

Mitch Moreland was pulled from Sunday's Grapefruit League game against the Braves with right hamstring tightness, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

Fantasy Impact

Moreland (hamstring) said his early exit from Sunday's Grapefruit League game was mostly precautionary. And Red Sox manager Ron Roenicke indicated it's not a serious concern, and the first baseman should be back on the field in a day or two.

Mitch Moreland re-signing with Red Sox on a one-year deal

Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports the Red Sox are re-signing Mitch Moreland to a one-year, $3 million contract.

Fantasy Impact

Moreland's salary for 2020 will be $2.5 million. The deal then includes a 2021 club option valued at $3 million (with a $500,000 buyout). Moreland swatted 19 homers with an .835 OPS last year and is worth streaming at times in deeper mixed leagues.

Mitch Moreland hits a homer in extra inning loss

Mitch Moreland went 1-for-4 with a solo home run as the Red Sox lost to the Rays in extra innings on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact

Moreland hit a go-ahead solo home run in the 11th inning on Saturday, but the Rays came back to win the game. The 34-year-old is hitting .244 with 18 home runs and 56 RBI and can be left on the waiver wire.
