by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Rangers still plan to use Prince Fielder at first base


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/9/2015) Rangers veteran Prince Fielder has played the majority of the year at designated hitter. With Mitch Moreland on the shelf, manager Jeff Banister has turned to rookie Kyle Blanks at first instead of Fielder, but he still has confidence in Fielder to get the job done, according to MLB.com.

"I'm looking to get him back out there," Banister said. "Playing on both sides of the ball keeps you engaged. He has been tremendous in the dugout when he is not on the field. His leadership in the clubhouse has been tremendous.

"I still feel confident putting him out on the dirt. He still needs to be engaged, he still needs to play first base and I feel confident in it. He is working his tail off at first base."

Fielder is hitting .339 with a team-high 14 RBI this season.

Rangers' Banister: First HR should give Fielder confidence boost


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/22/2015) Rangers first baseman Prince Fielder homered Tuesday at Arizona for the first time since May 8 last season. 

"I'm just here to drive in runs," said Fielder, who missed most of last season due to neck surgery. "Home runs are great a way to drive in multiple runs at one time, but as long as I'm hitting the ball hard and driving in runs I'm doing my job."

Now that Fielder has his first home run out of the way, Rangers manager Jeff Banister is confident the home runs could now come in bunches.

"He really hasn't got a whole lot of balls back-spun in the air, but tonight he did," Banister said, per MLB.com. "I know that everyone is wanting to see the power. We've wanted to see the power. It showed up tonight. My guess is that this gives him the confidence. I know he has been looking for his first one, too. He got it under his belt and that will give him the confidence to let the barrel go."

Even with one home run, Fielder is still slugging .509 through 14 games. He is batting .386 and has nine multihit games.

"I keep saying it, he's gone 9 1/2 months without playing baseball," Banister said. "I'm more impressed with how he's been swinging the bat and driving the ball from gap to gap, beating the shift."

Rangers' Mitch Moreland likely on bench until Friday


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/20/2015) Rangers designated hitter Mitch Moreland likely won't be in the team's starting lineup for most of this week.

Rangers' Prince Fielder, Mitch Moreland to split DH duties this year


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/19/2015) Rangers first baseman Prince Fielder and designated hitter Mitch Moreland will be used interchangeably on defense this season, reports MLB.com. Fielder was slated as the designated hitter Sunday for the sixth time, one less than he's started at first.

"Prince Fielder is our first baseman and Mitch Moreland plays first base," manager Jeff Banister said. "I will use both as needed. I see both players playing. I haven't seen enough of Mitch to evaluate his defense but I'm going to continue to play both at first base and both will get time at DH."

Banister wants to avoid Fielder becoming exclusively a DH.

"His energy level and who he is, we want to keep him engaged," Banister said. "DH is a challenging spot to perform in anyway if you're used to being in the field. The ability to play defense and stay engaged creates an energy. I don't want any of these guys [being a full-time DH] unless we find a David Ortiz-type of guy."


Mitch Moreland out of Rangers lineup on Sunday


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/19/2015) Rangers designated hitter Mitch Moreland was not in the team's starting lineup for Sunday's game. Moreland has a sore elbow and hasn't played since April 15.

Rangers' Prince Fielder not concerned with lack of power this year


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/15/2015) Rangers first baseman Prince Fielder has the highest average on the team so far this season, posting a .405/.450/.459 slash line in 37 at-bats. But, Fielder has yet to record a home run and just two extra-base hits ths year. The veteran is not worrying about the lack of pop just yet, reports FOX Sports Southwest.

"Getting hits is always better than making outs," Fielder said. "Hopefully I can continue doing that. I like getting hits. Whatever I don't do you guys will talk about. I might just get hits all year."

Fielder is trying to hit the ball away from the shift adjustments more this season.

"Obviously when I'm up there I see the hole sometimes," Fielder said. "In my mind I want to do it (hit to the left side) but I try not to manipulate the ball or I'll pop up to third base or I'll miss a good pitch. I'm just trying to hit the ball hard."

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Rangers' Fielder working on timing coming off neck surgery


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/2/2015) Rangers first baseman Prince Fielder, who is expected to make his spring debut Wednesday, appears to be doing well coming off neck surgery.

"Good … everything is smooth," Fielder said, per MLB.com. "My legs are not sore so it's all good."

The Rangers are watching Fielder's swing closely as he is facing live pitching for the first time in 9 1/2 months.

"He's doing OK," hitting coach Dave Magadan said, "He's a typical veteran player who is just trying to get his timing. We are trying to solidify some of the stuff we talked about in the offseason. Last year he was crashing into the ball, now we're getting him to hold his ground. Timing is huge. With him it's going as well as expected. Once he gets into the flow of games and gets his timing down, everybody will see a big difference.

"The goal is to hold your ground and get the ball into the air on the pull side. When he does that, it means he is going good."

"I'm just going to try to be healthy, that's my main goal," Fielder said. "I know I always said that before. But this was the first time I wasn't healthy, so it really means a lot to me now to try to stay healthy. That's just my goal -- to stay healthy and make sure I'm doing everything I can to be ready to play."

Fielder played in just 42 games in 2014 after having to have neck surgery. He hit .247 with three home runs and 16 RBI in 150 plate appearances.

"It was real difficult because I wasn't used to missing games," Fielder said. "So to miss a lot of the season, it was difficult at first, but I had to be an adult about it, kind of try to just get back healthy to be ready this year. I'm good, I'm 100 percent -- whatever it was before is back."
