BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2016 Someday in the very near future, the comments in this Annual will degenerate into nothing save for hashtag shorthand, and #OffensiveThreatMitchMoreland will suffice. Moreland bounced back from a serious ankle injury in 2014 to live up to his Twitter hashtag, putting up the best TAv of his career and delivering his second 20-plus-home-run campaign over the past three years. While the raw numbers looked great, Moreland's BABIP, his infield-fly percentage and his homer-per-fly rate all point to the possibility that 2015 might be closer to ceiling than norm. Moreland is a viable platoon option against right-handers, but most hashtags quickly revert to irony.
2015 Coming off a career-high 23 homers, Moreland's power fell off a cliff in 2014, as only Jake Peavy and R.A. Dickey watched him circle the bases before an ankle injury in June ended his season. While he's expected to be at full strength by spring training, the power outage is a concern because he doesn't do enough else to add value if he's not popping a dinger every 25 plate appearances. In fact, with Prince Fielder at first base, Moreland is unlikely to see much of the field at all as he looks to reprise his role of designated hitter against right-handed pitching. With Joey Gallo steaming up hard behind him, Moreland will have to put a strong hold on that spot if he wants to stay on the roster at all.
2014 Not many teams have even one 17th-round draft pick starting for them, but the Rangers had a pair doing so from 2011 to 2013, with Moreland at first base and Ian Kinsler 15 paces to his right. The Rangers passed on bringing Mike Napoli back in 2013 because they felt Moreland was ready to take a step forward and establish himself as a quality first baseman. Instead, he regressed, setting career lows in average, OBP and slugging. Moreland's pattern has been to start the season hot before getting hurt and then struggling to the finish. The Rangers still like his power potential, but with Prince Fielder coming to town, Moreland is looking at a bench role, a platoon or a new zip code.
2013 If Kinsler shifts to first base this season, Moreland may slot into a super-sub role. A natural first baseman, Moreland could see increased time in right field and as a designated hitter. When he reached the major leagues in 2010, his patience and ability to use all fields led to immediate success. Over the last two seasons, however, he has sacrificed that for a more pull-happy approach. This hasn't significantly increased his power but has sapped his on-base ability, as teams began employing a lefty overshift against him. He's squarely a second-division starter, though there is room for improvement if he makes the necessary adjustments.
2012 Ever since he was drafted in the 17th round in the 2007 draft, Mitch Moreland has defied expectations and played above the level suggested by his physical tools. In 2011, the realities of his skills finally settled in, as the husky slugger failed to slug his way into long-term job security. First base in the American League demands that the bat [read: offensive production] stand in the spotlight, but unfortunately for Moreland, the lefty’s bat wasn’t ready for the bright lights. His second half collapse left his season line looking more like an average second-division platoon player than someone capable of providing value at the position.
2011 A 17th-round pick in 2007, Moreland was labeled a guy with good power potential coming out of college, but suffered from perceptible holes in the inner half of his swing that seemed to make him more of an organizational player than a legit prospect. In fact, some saw the stocky left-hander as better-suited for the mound work in which he had dabbled while at Mississippi State. Moreland ended the positional debate after the 2008 season when he put up a 936 OPS in the pitcher-friendly Midwest league. Since then, he has climbed the professional ladder, defying expectations along the way and finally emerging as the Rangers’ starting first baseman in late July. Moreland isn’t a toolsy player, and he lacks defensive value, but his sound approach at the plate, quick hands, and good raw power give him a chance to defy those initial expectations even further and become a solid regular at the major-league level.
2010 When the Rangers made Moreland a 17th-round pick in 2007, their initial intention was to convert him to the mound due to his strong arm. Moreland resisted the move, convinced he could cut it offensively, and the Rangers acquiesced. Moreland got a chance to hit, and hasn't stopped, with a career .321/.387/.518 mark in his first 2 1/2 pro seasons. Nothing about his game is pretty, as he's a big, beefy guy with no tools other than the bat and the arm, but he's very close to getting a look in Texas, and it's now clear that he's definitely going to hit.

DateQuestionAnswer
2016-04-25 23:00:00 (link to chat)Joey Gallo has a K-rate of 24.6% vs. last year's 37%. He has a pattern of dramatically improving his K-rate during the 2nd-stint/season at a level. Meanwhile, Mitch Moreland has started off slowly. If Gallo keeps this up and Moreland continues to struggle, will/should TEX bring Gallo up at some point this season? TEX really could use some power in the lineup.
(Kristen from Canada)
Yeah, I don't think it's an "if" question for him getting PT in Texas, it's a "when" question (and a "what'll he do with it?" question). The numbers to date in an obviously small sample are certainly encouraging. (Wilson Karaman)
2015-03-29 14:00:00 (link to chat)Isn't Zach Lee in the mix if the Dodgers need pitching help? If so, why only 4 IP in S.T.?
(Greg from Virginia Beach)
Zach Lee should be. I faced him in high school and he gave me the worst at bat of my life. For some reason I got ahead 3-0. He then blew 3 fastballs by me on the black. Anecdotes aside I have no clue why the Dodgers have only thrown him that much. Maybe he's injured, maybe he's been throwing backfield games, maybe he's been in the bullpen trying to find a better secondary pitch.

Lee won't be spectacular at the big league level but he might be the Mitch Moreland of the Dodgers rotation. A guy who comes up and a year later it seems like he's been a staple in the org for the last 5. Hope that made sense haha. (Ryan Parker)
2015-03-29 14:00:00 (link to chat)Every year it seems a small group of Rangers Beat writers and fans get behind the idea that Mitch Moreland is going to have a good year, and every year they're disappointed. will he ever become anything more than an oft injured .260 hitter with a little pop?
(Kyle Dougherty from New Jersey)
Why would you be disappointed? Mitch will hit 260 with 20. It's not sexy but he is a productive big leaguer. Maybe it's not what some first basemen are putting up stats wise but it's not like he's a blackhole in the lineup. And injuries... yeah those suck. Hope he can stay healthy. (Ryan Parker)
2013-05-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)12 team mixed keeper league. Is it worth holding onto Hosmer? He's my only 1B and is KILLING me. Yonder Alonso, Matt Adams, James Loney, and Mitch Moreland are the only decent names on waivers? Would you take any of them over Hosmer or try to make a trade for someone better?
(kcasey1029 from Denver)
I'd prefer a trade since 1B is an elite offensive position, but in the meantime scoop Alonso to get some 1B production going. Hang onto Hosmer (unless he's part of the trade), but go and sit him for a bit. (Paul Sporer)
2013-02-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)For the next five years, you have the option of Mitch Moreland or Justin Smoak at first base. Probably not ideal either way, but go with me here. Which do you take? Do you believe in Smoak at all at this point?
(Steve from Yellowstone)
Moreland. He can actually make contact. (Jason Parks)
2012-12-04 14:00:00 (link to chat)Daniel, any truth to the thought that Kinsler may move to 1B so Profar can play at 2B in Arlington? Do you think the Cardinals have a shot at Scutaro? Thanks!
(Chopper from Indy)
One at a time, Chopper!

Starting with Kinsler — that buzz surfaced yesterday, and it's an indication that the Rangers are considering every option to get Profar into their lineup if he earns that job out of spring training. Moving Kinsler to first is a bit tricky, because it leaves Mitch Moreland without a home and blocks Mike Olt, but either of those two could be traded to make it possible. So, yes, I'd say the thought is true, but it's probably not Plan A or B.

The Cardinals met with Scutaro yesterday, so they are certainly in the mix. However, Hank Schulman (a Giants beat writer for the SF Chronicle), tweeted earlier this morning that Scutaro will give the Giants an opportunity to beat any offer: http://sulia.com/channel/san-francisco-giants/f/4c2ca6e3-9ca0-4c48-80a2-6c7e9db46040/?source=twitter (Daniel Rathman)
2012-11-15 14:00:00 (link to chat)Early speculation on some overvalued and undervalued players for next spring?
(Andrew from Las Vegas)
As much as I hate to say it, Mike Trout may well be overrated next year. I imagine there'll be some talk of him as number-one overall. In deep leagues, Josh Hamilton probably. Pitchers: Cueto, Miley, Harrison. Underrated, hmm, maybe Rajai Davis, Felix Doubront, Marco Estrada, Alex Cobb, and Mitch Moreland (again) (Derek Carty)
2012-02-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Either, Neither, or Both: B. Hawpe / C. Jackson make an impact for Rangers this year?
(Oh Snap from A Mountain)
Jackson has hit .232/.312/.323 over the past three seasons. Any impact he made will be classified as "dead cat bounce." Hawpe hit .239/.324/.389 over the past two seasons, but part of that was in Petco, and he always had more power than Jackson, but I'd be hard-pressed to call his potential contribution "impact" even if he does well, barring significant injuries to either Mitch Moreland, Mike Napoli, or Michael Young that would bring him significant playing time. (Jay Jaffe)
2012-02-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)I've seen wide ranging projections for Mitch Moreland. At the price I have him at, I can't go wrong keeping him but am having a hard time figuring what kind of a line to expect from him. Thoughts???
(LoyalRoyal from Home of Big House)
Shhhhh, this is just between you and me, but I like Moreland. My only concern is his wrist surgery potentially hampering his power a bit, but honestly, .260-.270 with 20-25 HR wouldn't surprise me in the least if he gets a full season. (Derek Carty)
2012-01-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)Keeper league sneaky keeper shortlist... Someone who will significantly outperform last season's draft value who failed to do so last year...
(LoyalRoyal from Kansas)
Mitch Moreland, assuming Prince doesn't wind up in Texas. (Derek Carty)
2011-05-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)Love your stuff, and I'm very glad you've joined BP and the chats. Are you going to feature a Tater Trot tracker during the year that will focus on pitcher taters exclusively? Also, can you use your influence to give Mitch Moreland his grand slam back from yesterday?
(jhardman from Apex, NC by way of Arlington)
Thanks!

I will certainly do a pitchers-only Tater Trot Tracker at some point. I find pitcher home runs fascinating, and their trots are always so special. I also appreciate the fact that Yovani Gallardo is by far the best home run hitting pitcher currently playing (he had 4 of the 9 pitcher home runs in 2010, if I remember correctly).

The Moreland grand-slam-that-wasn't-meant-to-be is terrible. Even worse, the one highlight I've seen of it doesn't give the whole trot! (Larry Granillo)
2011-05-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)Injuries are plaguing my team at the moment. - Joe Mauer - Pablo Sandoval - Andrew Bailey - And now Ike Davis Which first baseman do you think will have the most value in the short term? - Brett Wallace (who I picked up and can quickly drop) - Mitch Moreland - Eric Hosmer
(HonusCobb from Hopedale, IL)
I'll jump on the Eric Hosmer bandwagon here. He's made a pretty smooth transition to the major leagues and is also showing power. I like Wallace a lot, too, but he plays on a bad team, which cuts down on his RBI opportunities. (John Perrotto)
2011-05-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hey John, what are your thoughts on Mitch Moreland and Matt LaPorta for 2011?
(SnakeDoctor18 from NY)
I don't think either guy is ever going to become big home run hitters. They'll hit about 15 homers each and drive in a fair share of runs. They aren't premier first baseman but they are not complete zeros, either. (John Perrotto)
2011-04-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)Any good comps for Mitch Moreland? Or, if you dont like comps, what are his upside numbers?
(Josh from Texas)
I like his bat to be league average at first base, which is just about where he has been over his 239 plate appearances in the majors. He's off to a hot start in 2011, that's for sure. His 90th percentile projection might be a little low (that has him as basically average at first). (Marc Normandin)
