Rangers' Prince Fielder not starting on Wednesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/17/2015) Without the use of the designated hitter position, Rangers slugger Prince Fielder finds himself on the bench for Wednesday's matchup with the Dodgers in Los Angeles. Fielder had started all but one game this season, after missing the majority of 2014 with a neck injury. So this seemed like a good time for manager Jeff Banister to get Fielder a day of rest.

Fielder has cooled off at the plate over his last seven games, with five hits in 23 at-bats over that stretch. He hasn't hit a home run since May 26, a span of 18 games.

Mental, emotional state has Rangers 1B Prince Fielder thriving


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/29/2015) The resurgence of Rangers first baseman Prince Fielder is as much mental and emotional as it is physical, suggests CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

Those who know Fielder believe he is in a good place after a rough final season in Detroit and an injury-plagued 2014. He did not endear himself to the Tigers after the team was eliminated in 2013 when he suggested there were worse things in life.

Fielder was dealing with a marital issue that year and was concerned with his sons, but his marriage has remained intact and he is tearing it up at the dish. A recent six-game hitting streak included four three-hit games and five home runs. He boasts a sensational slash line of .361/.410/.577.

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Fielder has five homers in the last five games and is 14 for his last 24, with four straight 3-hit games. 

"You can tell Fielder feels so good right now," Indians manager Terry Francona said. "He hit a fastball to left field a couple of times and he hit the hanger across the street. That's not the guy, right now, that you want to hang a pitch to."

Fielder now has 10 home runs on the season and 298 for his career. The three-run blast gave him 38 RBI for the season.

by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/25/2015) Rangers designated hitter Prince Fielder and third baseman Adrian Beltre hit back-to-back home runs in the first inning of Monday afternoon's 10-8 win over the Indians.

Fielder finished the game 3 for 5, marking the third game in a row he has recorded three hits in an outing. Over his past five games, Fielder is hitting .478. For the season, Fielder is now slashing .365/.417/.575.

Fielder was the chief tormenter, however. He singled twice and scored a run in the third, walked and scored in the sixth and slammed a two-run homer in the seventh.

His big game comes as no surprise given the season he is having and his recent tear. He has hit safely in 11 of his last 12 games and is 5-for-9 with three home runs in the last two. He boasts a sensational slash line of .351/.404/.544.

Rangers still plan to use Prince Fielder at first base


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

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."

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."

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.
