Stint on 15-day DL likely for Moreland

SAN DIEGO -- Rangers general manager Jon Daniels said he expects first baseman Mitch Moreland, who left Tuesday night's game with a strained left hamstring, to land on the 15-day disabled list.

Moreland had an MRI on Wednesday morning, but the team will wait to decide his prognosis until the club returns to Arlington on Wednesday night. The 26-year-old Moreland tweaked the hamstring stretching for first while running out a ground ball Tuesday night.

"It's not too often a guy comes off the field holding his hamstring and it isn't at least two weeks," Daniels said. "But we'll make sure. We'll get the MRI read, he'll see the doctor tomorrow, and we'll make the call then."

Daniels said the decision will most likely be announced on Friday.
