|Prince Fielder on streak at home|
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(5/14/13) Tigers first baseman Prince Fielder has reached base in 23 straight games at Comerica Park.
Fielder is one of the best hitters in baseball, so these types of streaks shouldn't be unexpected. At home, he's hitting .295/.444/.607 with five home runs this year. He'll have a chance to extend his streak Tuesday and Wednesday against the Astros, and then the Tigers will play in Texas Thursday.
|Prince Fielder smacks ninth home run|
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(5/10/13) Tigers first baseman Prince Fielder hit his ninth home run of the season in his team's 10-4 win over the Indians Friday night. It was the only hit of the game for Fielder, who also drew a walk in five plate appearances.
Fielder has hit .298/.422/.573 in 154 plate appearances this season.
|Prince Fielder pads RBI total |
|by Adam Moore | CBSSports.com|
(5/5/13) Tigers first baseman Prince Fielder was able to pad his RBI total Sunday against the Astros. Fielder drove in a game-high four runs in the 9-0 win, with two of those coming on a two-run home run in the first inning, his eighth of the year.
He also ripped a two-run single in the second and finished 3 for 5 with four RBI and a run scored.
Fielder has hit safely in eight of the last nine games and is batting .314 (11 for 35 ) with three home runs and 10 RBI over that span.
|Prince Fielder homers in second consecutive game|
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(5/1/13) Tigers first baseman Prince Fielder homered for the second consecutive game Tuesday.
Fielder went 2 for 2, with a two-run home run against the Twins Tuesday. Monday, Fielder clubbed a three-run shot. Fielder has flashed a little more power to begin the year, and currently has a .591 slugging percentage.
|Prince Fielder, Miguel Cabrera have 3-0 green light|
|by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com|
(4/29/13) Tigers manager Jim Leyland said Monday that Prince Fielder and Miguel Cabrera almost always have a green light to swing on a 3-0 count, MLB.com reports. He also said most players don't feel comfortable swinging in a 3-0 count.
"I never give Miguel the take -- him and Prince," Leyland said. "Unless you think the game's a lopsided game where you don't want to get somebody hit or something like that."
That said, Cabrera is more likely to take a 3-0 pitch than swing. Cabrera is 6 for 13 swinging on 3-0 during his career. He homered off Cory Gearrin on Sunday in that count.
Fielder has gone 7 for 20 swinging on 3-0 during his career. He's walked in all four plate appearances in that count this season.
|In his first season as a Tiger, Prince Fielder clearly missed hitting at his former home of Miller Park, but the move didn't prevent him from being one of the top Fantasy first basemen. He hit 18 home runs in 81 games at Comerica Park, as opposed to hitting 24 in the same number of games at Miller Park in 2011, and accordingly, his power and run production numbers sagged. Fielder made up for the mild power slump by cutting back on strikeouts, and the additional contact helped him to achieve a career-high .313 batting average. If he can combine his newfound knack for contact with the power that made him a perennial threat to hit 40 homers, Fielder could be one of the top producing first baseman in all of Fantasy, worthy of a first-round pick. Before you use a first-rounder on the big slugger, be aware that he did not hit for nearly as much power on the road has he did at Miller Park during his last two years in Milwaukee. Without help from the Brewers' home park, Fielder's best power-hitting days may be behind him. Still, he is likely to be one of the top three first basemen, and it will require an early-round pick to get him. (Updated 12/4/12)|
