FORT WORTH -- Rangers first baseman Mitch Moreland said Tuesday that he's ready for spring training and that his surgically-repaired right wrist feels good.

Moreland said he's been participating in full workouts at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington with some of his teammates and has been hitting four times a week with hitting coach Scott Coolbaugh.

"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."

Moreland is focused on getting completely healthy and proving that the hitter that fared so well in the second half of 2010 can reappear in 2012.
