    Description: Rangers first baseman Prince Fielder had two hits and two walks in the, 7-1, loss to the Athletics on Sunday.
    Insight: Despite reaching base four times, Fielder did not produce a run. He is hitting .358 with two home runs and 11 RBI this season.
     
    4/28/2015 3:30:00 PM
    Description: Rangers first baseman Prince Fielder has been very good against Mariners starting pitcher J.A. Happ in his career.
    Insight: Fielder is hitting .364 versus Happ with four doubles and five RBI. His OPS against the lefty is .937. Start Fielder as you normally would.
     
    4/25/2015 11:22:00 AM
    Description: Rangers first baseman Prince Fielder is 6-for-12 with a home run versus Angels left-hander C.J. Wilson.
    Insight: Fielder is hitting .375 with a home run and 10 RBI this season. It's a solid combination of a hot hitter, a favorable matchup and the wind blowing out to right field tonight. Start him.
     
    4/22/2015 9:42:00 AM
    Description: Rangers first baseman Prince Fielder was 2-for-5 with a home run, three RBI and run scored in the, 7-1, victory over the Diamondbacks on Tuesday.
    Insight: Fielder had a ground rule double in the first inning and then hit a two-run homer in the eighth. It was Fielder's first home run of the season. He is also hitting .386 with nine RBI this season.
     
    4/19/2015 9:26:00 PM
    Description: Rangers first baseman Prince Fielder was 2-for-5 with an RBI-single in the heartbreaking loss to the Mariners on Sunday.
    Insight: Texas led Seattle, 10-5, in the sixth, but Seattle chipped away at that lead each inning and capped off the comeback victory with a walkoff homer from Nelson Cruz. Fielder is hitting well to start 2015, but he hasn't hit a home run yet in 52 at-bats.
     
    4/18/2015 10:37:00 AM
    Description: Rangers first baseman Prince Fielder is hitless in 11 at-bats against Felix Hernandez.
    Insight: There are probably plenty of players in the same situation versus the Seattle ace, but that doesn't help. Despite Fielder's .419 batting average you should probably avoid this matchup.
     
    4/15/2015 5:48:00 PM
    Description: Rangers first baseman Prince Fielder was 1-for-3 in the, 10-2, loss to the Angels on Wednesday.
    Insight: Fielder is off to a good start, which is great news considering he is returning from nck surgery. He is hitting .400 with four RBI in nine games although he has yet to hit a home run.
     
    4/10/2015 8:32:00 PM
    Description: Rangers first baseman Prince Fielder whad a three-hit day Friday versus Houston.
    Insight: He went 3-for-4 with a double. Fielder has a .421/.476/.526 line on the young season.
     
    4/8/2015 9:29:00 AM
    Description: Rangers first baseman Prince Fielder was 2-for-3 with two RBI in the, 3-1, victory over the Athletics.
    Insight: Fielder had an RBI-single in the third and then another RBI-single in the fifth. The second hit led to a third run when Oakland committed an error in the field, and that's the only runs Texas needed. The Sports Network expects Fielder to have a big bounce-back season and perhaps be a top-five option at first base.
     
    3/29/2015 10:05:00 AM
    Description: Rangers first baseman Prince Fielder went 2-for-2 with an RBI on Saturday against the Padres.
    Insight: Fielder had an RBI-single versus Ross, who had a great day on the hill besides allowing the single to Fielder. The first baseman is hitting .324 this spring and looks fine, having recovered from neck surgery in the offseason.
     
    3/8/2015 10:29:00 PM
    Description: Rangers first baseman Prince Fielder was 1-for-3 with a home run and three RBI Sunday against the Indians.
    Insight: Fielder is coming back from neck problems that led to season-ending surgery last season. Fielder is only 30 years old, so fantasy owners should not overlook him this season.
     
    9/24/2014 12:40:00 PM
    Description: Rangers first baseman Prince Fielder (neck surgery in May) has begun to swing a bat, according to a Fort Worth Star-Telegram report.
    Insight: He's also begun lifting weights. Barring any setbacks he should be 100 percent ready to go next spring.
     
    5/22/2014 6:38:00 PM
    Description: Rangers first baseman Prince Fielder will have neck surgery on Tuesday. He'll need 3-to-4 months of recovery time, which means he'll likely miss the rest of the season. SOURCE: Anthony Andro, Fox Sports Southwest
    Insight: It's devastating news for fantasy owners. For Texas, it's even worse as the Rangers have almost no chance of catching the A's without Fielder hitting cleanup every night. He'll finish the year with three homers, 16 RBI and a .247 average across 150 at bats. Mitch Moreland (.275, 2 HR, 15 RBI) will serve as the everyday first baseman in his absence.
     
    5/22/2014 3:10:00 PM
    Description: Texas first baseman Prince Fielder could end up needing season-ending surgery for his herniated disc in the neck after visiting a specialist on Thursday.
    Insight: He's sat out the last four games due to the neck injury. He's been one of the biggest disappointments this season batting .247 with just three homers and 16 RBI. That means more starts at first base for Mitch Moreland (.286, 2 HR, 15 RBI).
     
    5/21/2014 12:12:00 PM
    Description: Texas first baseman Prince Fielder won't play in Wednesday's series finale. SOURCE: Rangers on Twitter
    Insight: He's sat out the last four games with a herniated disc in his neck. That means another start at first base for Mitch Moreland (.294, 2 HR, 15 RBI).
     
    5/20/2014 5:00:00 PM
    Description: Rangers first baseman Prince Fielder (neck) has been scratched from Tuesday's lineup, according to Richard Durrett of espn.com.
    Insight: Fielder has a herniated disc in his neck which is now causing arm weakness. He may be back Wednesday.
     
    5/17/2014 4:42:00 PM
    Description: Rangers first baseman Prince Fielder has a herniated disc in his neck and will miss at least two games, according to Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. Fielder received an injection Saturday and won't need surgery.
    Insight: A frustrating season just got worse. The 30-year-old has hit .247 with three homers, 16 RBI and a .720 OPS in 150 at-bats with his new team. He has a career-high 50.4 percent ground-ball rate, which is not what you want out of a power hitter.
     
    5/4/2014 10:29:00 PM
    Description: Rangers first baseman Prince Fielder went 3-for-4 with two doubles, two RBI, two walks and three runs scored Sunday against the Angels
    Insight: Fielder's strikeout and walk rates (12.6 K%, 14.1 BB%) are back to peak levels this season but he has a career-high 52.6 percent ground-ball rate and a career-low 7.4 percent HR/FB.
     
    4/26/2014 1:48:00 PM
    Description: Rangers 1B Prince Fielder is 0-for-8 with four strikeouts against Seattle ace Felix Hernandez.
    Insight: Fielder has struggled with his new team, batting .214 with just two homers and seven RBI. Saturday's matchup doesn't figure to help.
     
    4/18/2014 10:38:00 AM
    Description: Rangers 1B Prince Fielder is 4-for-8 with a pair of homers and five walks against White Sox starter Felipe Paulino.
    Insight: Fielder has struggled with his new team, but appears to be finiding his stroke. He's 4-for-14 over his last four games, including his first homer of the season.
