Rangers activate Mitch Moreland from the disabled list

Texas activated Mitch Moreland from the disabled list after the first baseman missed the past two weeks with a strained hamstring.

Moreland was having a breakout season before the injury, hitting .288 with 12 homers, 16 doubles, and a .900 OPS in 58 games. He’ll resume starting at first base tonight against the Cardinals after going 6-for-12 with a homer on a brief minor-league rehab assignment.

To make room for Moreland on the roster the Rangers demoted right-hander Josh Lindblom to Triple-A after using him four times as a fill-in starter.
