Prince Fielder moved to 60-day disabled list


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(6/20/2014) Rangers first baseman Prince Fielder has been moved to the 60-day disabled list Friday.

Fielder is expected to miss the entire year following neck surgery. Moving him to the 60-day disabled list allows the team to add Justin Marks to the 40-man roster. Fielder hit .247/.360/.360 over 150 at-bats.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/27/2014) The Rangers announced Tuesday, confirming an earlier report from Yahoo! Sports, first baseman Prince Fielder underwent neck surgery. He had surgery for cervical fusion of C5-C6 discs in his neck and is expected to miss the rest of the 2014 season.

Report: Prince Fielder undergoes neck surgery Tuesday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/27/2014) Rangers first baseman Prince Fielder underwent neck surgery Tuesday morning, a source told Yahoo! Sports. Fielder is expected to miss the remainder of the 2014 season due to the neck injury.

Prince Fielder officially placed on disabled list


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(5/23/2014) The Rangers announced Friday that they have placed first baseman Prince Fielder on the 15-day disabled list. The move comes one day after reports of Fielder deciding to undergo surgery on his neck, which will keep him out of action for the remainder of the season.

In a corresponding move, the Rangers activated infielder Donnie Murphy (neck) from the 15-day disabled list.


Prince Fielder set for season-ending surgery


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/22/2014) Rangers first baseman Prince Fielder will undergo surgery to repair a herniated disc in his neck, the team announced Thursday.

Fielder has been scheduled for surgery Tuesday, and will end his season, team president Jon Daniels told reporters. Fielder is expected to be back in time for the start of 2015, and Daniels said the team is confident his surgery will go well. 


Prince Fielder in need of a downgrade


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/22/2014) If Prince Fielder really is considering season-ending surgery on the herniated disk in his neck, as reports have suggested, it's reason enough for a significant downgrade. The chance of him coming back and putting up his usual numbers the rest of the way isn't worth the risk of him not coming back at all.

Besides, if the injury is causing weakness in his left arm, as the Fort Worth Star-Telegram also suggested, it could explain his struggles so far. Even if he opts against surgery and comes back, he may not put up his usual numbers, as I had maintained until now he would.

To be clear, I'm saying you might actually want to consider selling him for 50 cents on the dollar. Or at least 75. When I last updated my rest-of-season rankings, I had him eighth at first base, between Jose Abreu and Chris Davis, but with this news, he probably deserves be more like 25th. Give me Michael Cuddyer, Mike Napoli, Justin Morneau or Mark Teixeira instead.


Report: Prince Fielder could undergo season-ending surgery


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/22/2014) Rangers first baseman Prince Fielder is seriously considering surgery to repair a herniated disc in his neck that would end his season, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

Fielder was evaluated by spine specialist Dr. Drew Dossett on Thursday. He received a nerve-root injection over the weekend, but still might have a surgery that would remove a chunk of disc from the nerve that is pinched and is causing weakness in his left arm.

His teammates are in Detroit for a weekend series. Fielder has been the target of disenchanted fans after being traded in the offseason by the Tigers to the Rangers for Ian Kinsler, who has thrived in the leadoff spot while Fielder has struggled mightily.


Prince Fielder out of Thursday lineup for Rangers


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/22/2014) The absence of Rangers first baseman Prince Fielder from the lineup continued Thursday. As expected, he is out for the afternoon game against his former teammates in Detroit. He did not travel with the team and could miss the entire series.

Fielder has been sidelined with neck and hand injuries. He was scheduled to visit a doctor Thursday, which could result in a diagnosis that places him on the disabled list. Ron Washington, however, said the team has yet to discuss that possibility and added that Fielder could join the team in the Motor City later this weekend.


Precaution is name of the game for Prince Fielder


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2014) Ron Washington spoke optimistically about Rangers first baseman Prince Fielder despite the news that the latter will not accompany the team to Detroit for the weekend series. Fielder is set to meet with medical personnel about his ailing hand and herniated disk in his neck.

"This is a precaution - he had some soreness the other day when he tried to swing, so we let him see our specialist," Washington reported Wednesday to MLB Network Radio. "He came in this morning and was feeling much better. He'll meet with the doctor and see where we go from there."

Fielder has not played since Friday.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Prince Fielder able to return Tuesday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Rangers hope injection keeps Prince Fielder off DL


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/17/2014) The Rangers do not anticipate the need to place first baseman Prince Fielder on the disabled list. He is out of the lineup Saturday with a herniated disk in his neck.

The team is hopeful an anti-inflammatory injection will help him avoid a trip to the DL, but if it doesn't, he might require surgery. That would further the struggles of a team already decimated by injuries.

"It's part of what we deal with every day," general manaager Jon Daniels told the Dallas Morning News. "It's been to the extreme this year."


Prince Fielder loses weekend starts to herniated disk


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/17/2014) A herniated disk in the neck that required an injection has Rangers first baseman Prince Fielder on the bench Saturday night. He will also miss the Sunday game.

Fielder had three straight two-hit games before going hitless Friday. He has struggled against both left-handers and right-handers this year - he is hitting .237 against lefties and .247 overall.


Prince Fielder beating shifts, but not hitting homers


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/14/2014) Disappointing Rangers slugger Prince Fielder is trying to give what the defense gives him - pretty much the entire left side of the infield.

Fielder managed two singles Tuesday against Houston starter Dallas Keuchel by beating the severe shift. "(Keuchel) was throwing some good pitches and if I try to pull it, I'm just going to roll it over," he told ESPN.com. "A hit is a hit. Until I feel more comfortable it's a way to get some hits. It's better than hitting a line drive out because they have seven people on the right side of the field."

The approach, however, will limit power numbers that are already down. Fielder has lifted his batting average to .243, its highest point since April 4. but he has just three home runs and 10 extra-base hits this season.


Prince Fielder batting far more often against shifts in 2014


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/9/2014) Struggling Rangers first baseman Prince Fielder has not been victimized by an increased number of defensive shifts this season, according to the Dallas Morning News per data compiled by fangraphs.com through May 4.

The data revealed that Fielder put the ball in play 82 times against the shift in 135 plate appearances. Through the same number of games a year ago, he had put the ball in play 30 times in 140 plate appearances. He had 10 hits in his 30 at-bats against it in 2013 and is 22 of 82 for a .269 average against it in 2014.

Fielder, however, has hit far worse against normal defensive alignments, against which he has just seven hits in 45 at-bats. He is on pace this season for just 14 home runs and 55 RBI.


Prince Fielder goes yard in home win over Rockies


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/9/2014) Rangers first baseman Prince Fielder launched his third home run of the season Thursday night at home against the Rockies.

Fielder took starter Franklin Morales deep for a solo home run in the sixth inning. He finished 1 for 3 with a walk, a run scored and an RBI in a 5-0 victory. All three of his home runs have come at home this season. He has recorded at least a hit in eight of his last nine games played, raising his batting average from .200 to .228 over that span.

Prince Fielder reaches base five times in win over Angels


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/5/2014) Rangers first baseman Prince Fielder reached base five times, leading his team in a 14-3 win over the Angels on Sunday.

Fielder doubled in a run in the opening frame and doubled in another in the second inning. He added another double and finished 3 for 4 with two walks, three runs scored and two RBI.

Prince Fielder still cleanup hitter despite Adrian Beltre return


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/25/2014) The return of Adrian Beltre to the Rangers did not return Prince Fielder to the third spot in the lineup. Fielder will remain in the fourth hole with Beltre batting third when the team plays Seattle on Friday night.

Fielder emerged from a slump at nearly the same point in which Beltre was placed on the disabled list. He was batting .149 on April 13, but has since raised it to a more respectable .200. He is 9 for 33 since with two home runs.


Prince Fielder failing to find groove in Texas


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/18/2014) Every time Rangers newcomer and first baseman Prince Fielder has shown signs of emerging from his early-season slump, he falls back into a funk.

Fielder got two hits on April 4, but followed with an 0-for-12 stretch. He slammed three hits on April 8 before going 1 for 14 in the next four games. He had three hits in his next two games combined, but is 0 for 7 in the last two. He has just four extra-base hits this season with one home run. His stat line reads .164/.271/.262.

Also unsettling for the Rangers is that Ian Kinsler, whom they traded to land their first baseman, is off to a sizzling start in Detroit with numbers that nearly double those of Fielder down the line. Kinsler's stat line is .327/.352/.519.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
