ARLINGTON -- First baseman Mitch Moreland underwent ligament-reconstruction and bone-realignment surgery in his left ankle on Monday. The surgery was performed by Dr. Robert Anderson in North Carolina.

Moreland is recovering at his home and is expected to begin the rehab process as early as next week; the Rangers are hopeful that he'll be ready for Spring Training.

Moreland, who has been on the disabled list since June 8, was hitting .246 with two home runs and 23 RBIs in 52 games.
