18 days until pitchers and catchers report

18 days until pitchers and catchers report to spring training for the Texas Rangers.

Mitch Moreland pitching last season was one of the more memorable aspects of the Rangers' disaster of a season.  It was a disaster of a season for Moreland, as well, who put up a 644 OPS before going on the shelf for the rest of the year.

There was some thought Moreland might be non-tendered, but he's back, expected to be the DH against RHPs, be the backup first baseman, and play in a COF spot if necessary.

Moreland turns 30 years old in September, which seems kind of nuts to me.  It feels like there is no way Moreland should be that old.
