Prince Fielder plated both runs for the Rangers in their victory over the Astros on Friday.
Fielder hit a ball over a leaping Tony Kemp in left field for a two-run double in the third inning. It stood up as the difference in the ballgame. While Fielder led the charge for the offense on this night, such displays have been few and far between so far this season. The 32-year-old still owns an alarming .197/.265/.289 batting line through 41 games. May 20 - 11:24 PM

Prince Fielder went 1-for-4 with an RBI single in Wednesday's loss to the A's.

Fielder's sixth-inning RBI single off A's starter Rich Hill accounted for the only run the Rangers scored in the contest. For the season, the veteran slugger is slashing a paltry .195/.259/.289 with two homers, seven doubles and 21 RBI. The RBI count is fine, but the other numbers to his name are distressing, to say the least. Fielder owned a .305/.378/.463 triple-slash last season, making his sudden drop in production all the more noticeable.

Prince Fielder is not in Monday's lineup against the Athletics.

The struggling slugger will take a seat against left-hander Sean Manaea. Adrian Beltre is in the DH spot while Hanser Alberto will play third.

Prince Fielder hit a two-run home run in Tuesday's win over the Astros.

Fielder took Astros starter Scott Feldman deep in the first inning, his second homer of the season. It has been a less-than-ideal start to the season for the hefty first baseman, as he's struggled to a .173/.246/.288 line without a multi-hit game in his first 14. His two homers are also his only two extra-base hits. Better days are ahead for the 31-year-old.

Prince Fielder crushed his first home run of the season Wednesday in a loss to the Mariners.

Fielder was once a perennial threat for 50 homers. Those days are over but Fielder still has plenty of pop and showed it Wednesday with a towering three-run blast off Wade Miley. Fielder entered Wednesday with just one hit in his first eight at-bats but obviously that’s an incredibly small sample size. The veteran DH should push for 100 RBI if he stays healthy.
Apr 6 - 5:07 PM

Prince Fielder had the Rangers’ lone hit in Monday’s Opening Day win over the Mariners.

Fielder finished 1-for-4 with two strikeouts. The Rangers were held hitless by Felix Hernandez until the veteran slugger poked a bloop single to bring in the tying run in the fifth inning. This is just the second time in Rangers’ history that they have won a game with one hit or fewer. The only other time was July 27, 1993 against the Royals.
Apr 4 - 7:13 PM

Prince Fielder has been diagnosed with sleep apnea and will use a mask and breathing device to help counter the condition.

Fielder's case is considered extreme, as the study he participated in showed that he stopped breathing 30 times per hour. Not surprisingly, he had been having trouble sleeping, so the hope is that the mask and breathing device will help that and give him more energy.
Mar 11 - 11:13 AM

Prince Fielder was sent back to Texas for a sleep study.

He's been having a hard time sleeping at night. Fielder's former teammate Mike Napoli battled sleep apnea during the 2014 season and Fielder might be dealing with something similar. He's expected to return to the Rangers' spring training facility on Friday.
Mar 9 - 10:42 AM

Rangers general manager Jon Daniels said Tuesday that the team is not "shopping" Prince Fielder.

Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reported earlier Tuesday that the club was "surveying" the market for Fielder. Of course, Daniels saying that they're not "shopping" the slugger doesn't exactly deny that they're listening on him. It might be a moot point, as Grant says the Rangers were "not getting much response" when they put feelers out.

Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News hears that the Rangers are "surveying" the market for Prince Fielder.

The Rangers were looking to see if anyone would be interested in picking up the "bulk" of Fielder's contract, but they didn't find much interest. The 31-year-old is owed $120 million over the next five seasons, though the Tigers are picking up the tab on $30 million of it.

Prince Fielder has been named the 2015 Comeback Player of the Year in the American League.

Fielder appeared in just 42 games last season before requiring season-ending surgery on his neck. He returned this year to bat .305/.378/.463 with 23 home runs and 98 RBI in 158 games for the American League West champions. The 31-year-old is under contract with Texas through the 2020 campaign.

Prince Fielder went 3-for-4 with a walk, a double, a solo home run, and a two-run single, but the Rangers fell to the Tigers on Monday.

Fielder tied the game at 1-1 with a solo home run off of Justin Verlander. He added an RBI ground out in the seventh and a two-run single in the ninth. The first baseman now has multiple hits in three of his last four games. Fielder is carrying a .307/.379/.471 batting line with 23 home runs and 95 RBI.

Prince Fielder was 2-for-5 with two RBI against the Astros on Friday.

Fielder delivered an RBI double in the first inning before capping a three-run fourth inning with a run-scoring single. The veteran slugger came into Friday's action with just two hits in his last 24 at-bats. Still, he has picked things back up on the power front this month while continuing to get on base at a high clip.

Prince Fielder went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run and a walk in Thursday afternoon's win over the A's.

Fielder waited until the eighth inning to work his magic, at which point he cracked a two-run bomb off A's reliever Cody Martin. The veteran slugger has rebounded nicely from an injury-shortened 2014 campaign. He's groovin' to a .303/.376/.463 batting line with 22 homers and 86 RBI over 148 games.

Fielder drove in the first run in the Rangers' six-run first inning. He then belted a solo home run in the third inning off of Dallas Keuchel, and added a three-run shot in the sixth against Michael Feliz. The DH has multiple hits in four consecutive games and is now hitting .314/.383/.477 with 21 home runs and 83 RBI on the year.
