OAKLAND -- Mitch Moreland was examined on Tuesday by Dr. Ned Amendola in Iowa and it appears the first baseman will have reconstructive surgery on his left ankle. A time and date have not been confirmed yet as the Rangers are awaiting the final details.

If Moreland has the surgery, he will miss the rest of the season while facing a long rehabilitation process. He has been on the disabled list since June 8.

Derek Holland, who has been on the disabled list since the start of the season while recovering from offseason surgery on his left knee, went through another heavy work of pitchers' fielding practice on Tuesday at the Rangers complex in Surprise, Ariz.

Holland is scheduled to throw live batting practice on Wednesday and again Monday. At that point, he will rejoin the Rangers in Texas, and the club will decide if he is ready to go on a medical rehabilitation assignment.
