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.


Alex Rios hitting third, Prince Fielder batting cleanup vs. Houston


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/11/2014) With Adrian Beltre out of the lineup, the Rangers will go with outfielder Alex Rios batting third and first baseman Prince Fielder batting cleanup in the lineup Friday against Houston, ESPN Dallas reports.

"Rios has hit fourth a little bit in his career, but he's not a fourth hitter," manager Ron Washington said. "I want to put him somewhere where he's comfortable. I just switched them."

Prince Fielder takes Saturday off


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2/22/2014) Rangers first baseman Prince Fielder is taking the day off Saturday and will return on Sunday, per FoxSports Southwest.

Rangers manager projects 2014 lineup/batting order


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/19/2014) Rangers manager Ron Washington provided his projected lineup/batting order for the 2014 season, according to ESPN.

Washington has penciled left fielder Shin-Soo Choo into the leadoff spot. He will be followed by shortstop Elvis Andrus, first baseman Prince Fielder, third baseman Adrian Beltre, right fielder Alex Rios, DH Mitch Moreland, catcher Geovany Soto, second baseman Jurickson Profar and center fielder Leonys Martin.


Prince Fielder getting in some early work


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(2/19/2014) Rangers first baseman Prince Fielder is set to work out Wednesday, according to ESPN. 

Position players were set to report to camp Wednesday, but will not take part in full practice until Thursday. Fielder is entering his first season with the new club, and will get some work in early. He's already told reporters he's in the best shape of his life. 

Fielder hit .279/.362/.457 in 624 at-bats last season. 


Prince Fielder proclaims himself in tip-top condition


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2/12/2014) New Rangers first baseman Prince Fielder has used a combination of mixed martial arts and weightlifting to get into what he describes as "the best shape of my life" as he tries to rebound from a poor season with the Tigers.

Fielder has also responded to critics who complained about his 2013 production. He batted .279 with 25 home runs and 106 RBI playing half his games in an expansive ballpark not suited for a left-handed power hitter.

"Everybody has their opinion," he told the Detroit Free Press. "I know what I do. I play hard every day no matter what, and I give it all I got. It night not be up to other peoples' expectations, but I can only do what I can do. ... I would've loved to hit 50 home runs ... but I didn't do it."

Fielder is expected to hit for more power with the Rangers, whose ballpark is a hitter's paradise. Adding to his potential is that he will be batting third in front of fellow slugger Adrian Beltre, who should provide tremendous protection.


Prince Fielder excited about batting third


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/27/2014) New Rangers first baseman Prince Fielder is slated to hit third in the Texas lineup. It's a spot in the order teammate Adrian Beltre figures Fielder will put up lofty numbers.

"He’s going to get the MVP," Beltre said, per The Dallas Morning News. "It’s his time to win it. My job is to protect him so that he gets there."

Fielder has spent most of his career batting cleanup. Since 2007, he leads the majors in homers from the cleanup spot with 230 and ranks second in RBI with 711. 

In 157 career games hitting third, Fielder is batting .252 with a .480 slugging percentage, .827 OPS, 32 doubles, 34 home runs and 93 RBI. Despite his success hitting cleanup, Fielder is looking forward to batting third.

"I think it’s going to be outstanding," Fielder said. "I like it a lot. Definitely not upset about it. Anytime you get to hit in front of a guy like (Beltre), it’s not going to hurt."

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Rangers-Tigers discuss Ian Kinsler-Prince Fielder trade


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/20/2013) The Rangers and Tigers are discussing a trade involving Rangers second baseman Ian Kinsler and Tigers first baseman Prince Fielder, CBSSports.com baseball insider Jon Heyman reports.

Kinsler is owed $62 million over four seasons, and the team owns a club option for 2018 that would cost an extra $5 million to exercise. The three-time All-Star hit .277/.344/.413 with 13 home runs, 72 RBI and 15 stolen bases in 545 at-bats last season. The Rangers have been trying to clear a logjam in the middle infield that includes Kinsler, Elvis Andrus and Jurickson Profar.

Fielder is owed $24 million annually through the 2020 season and has a limited no-trade clause in his contract that allows him to block trades to 10 teams. The five-time All-Star hit .279/.362/.457 with 25 home runs and 106 RBI in 624 at-bats last season.


Tigers open to offers on Prince Fielder


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(11/13/2013) According to the San Francisco Chronicle, the Tigers are willing to listen to offers for first baseman Prince Fielder. Just two years into a nine-year, $214 million contract, Fielder may be difficult to move even to a highly-motivated party, as he has a limited no-trade clause.

MLive.com reports that the Tigers may be at least open to trade discussions due to a potential lack of payroll flexibility in the coming years, though they could still be reluctant to pay a large portion of his salary to expedite a deal.

by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

by Jack Moore | CBSSports.com

by Jack Moore | CBSSports.com

Fielder is hitting .260/.349/.438 on the season; his batting average and slugging percentage would be his worst since his rookie season in 2005.
