Jim Blake, the Executive Vice President of Communications for the Texas Rangers, reports that Mitch Moreland will miss an extensive period of time following left ankle surgery later this week:
Mitch Moreland will undergo surgery on left ankle this week. Expected to be sidelined for extensive period of time. No roster move today.— John Blake (@RangerBlake) June 8, 2014
Moreland, 28, was off to a slow start thus far in 2014 as he has yet to become what people throughout Texas expected him to.
Through 52 games Moreland was hitting .246 with 2 HR's and 23 RBI's.
This is yet another injury blow to a Rangers squad without Derek Holland, Matt Harrison, Jurickson Profar, Geovany Soto and Prince Fielder for an extended period of time.
Moreland is expected to miss at least three months.
