News: Moreland (ankle) has been cleared for a progressive running program, MLB.com reports.
Impact: A follow-up exam with Dr. Keith Meister yielded positive results, as Moreland was cleared to run on the surgically-repaired ankle and the hope is that he will soon be given the green light to progress to full activity. Moreland is expected to enter spring training without restriction, and it's possible he could push for time in left field if he shows ample mobility.

News: Moreland (ankle) could be an option in left field for the Rangers in 2015, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
Impact: Shin-Soo Choo (elbow) appears likely to move over to right field to fill the void left by Alex Rios, creating an opening in left field. While Moreland has made just two appearances in left in his career, both of which came last season, it seems the team is optimistic his ankle will be healthy enough to where he can at least contribute occasionally at the position in 2015. Michael Choice (hamstring) and Ryan Rua seem like the other top candidates for playing time.
