Mitch Moreland Says He's Feeling Better

Despite staying in the bidding for Prince Fielder until the final stages, the Rangers have maintained that Mitch Moreland's poor second half was largely a result of his injured wrist. Moreland hit .301/.376/.511 in April and May but just .241/.300/.367 after the All-Star Break.

He told Richard Durrett Wednesday that his wrist does feel much better after surgery.

"I feel really good right now," Moreland said. "Nobody will know until we get there but me. I have to go out there and see how I feel, but as of now everything is going great."

Moreland said the wrist bothered him a lot down the stretch in 2011, even preventing him from taking any swings in the batting cages and limiting his swings in batting practice before games. He said he had an "impact fracture" that caused a bone to get out of place, which was grinding against cartilage in his wrist. But he doesn't feel any pain in that wrist now.

"I'll be on some kind of hitting routine [as spring training starts], but there won't be many limitations to it," Moreland said. "They said we were going to go on how I feel. If I feel good, we'll keep going through it."
