Prince Fielder knocked in three runs in a 2-for-4 effort on Monday as the Rangers lost to the Rockies.

Fielder singled in a run in the third inning, pushed two runs across with a ground out in the fifth, thanks in part to a defensive lapse by the Rockies. The first baseman has only one extra-base hit (a double) in his last six games, but still has a stellar .339/.402/.514 batting line with 14 home runs and 57 RBI.

Prince Fielder homered and knocked in two runs Friday against the Padres.

Fielder got the Rangers on the board with a sacrifice fly in the first inning before launching a solo homer in the fourth. The 31-year-old entered the season with a lot of questions coming off neck surgery, but he has done nothing but produce. He's now batting .345 with 14 home runs and 53 RBI through 84 games.

Prince Fielder belted his 300th career home run in a losing effort against the Blue Jays on Friday.

The blast, his 12th of the season, came off of left-hander Mark Buehrle in the first inning. The 31-year-old slugger joined elite company as and father Cecil Fielder became only the second father/son duo to each have clubbed 300 or more career home runs, joining Barry and Bobby Bonds. He's having an outstanding comeback season in Arlington, slashing .346/.415/.539 with 48 RBI.

Prince Fielder is not in the Rangers starting lineup on Thursday.

Forced to play without a designated hitter in Los Angeles, the Rangers will roll with Mitch Moreland at first base and in the cleanup spot in the lineup. Fielder should make an appearance as a pinch hitter in this one and return to the lineup on Friday.
Jun 18 - 6:03 PM

Prince Fielder went 1-for-3 with an RBI single and a run scored against the Dodgers on Tuesday.

Fielder's walk in the first inning started a two-out rally that got the Rangers their first run. He added an infield single -- no small feat for a man of Fielder's stature -- that scored a run in the fifth. The 31-year-old is still hitting lights out in his return from injury last year, batting .341/.404/.512 with 46 RBI, third-most in the American League.

Prince Fielder is out of the Rangers' lineup Wednesday.

It's just a day of rest for Fielder, who had started all 52 games this season. Mitch Moreland is at first base and Joey Gallo will DH on Wednesday against the White Sox.
Jun 3 - 4:09 PM

Prince Fielder stayed red hot Tuesday, finishing 3-for-5 with a three-run homer as the Rangers edged the Indians 4-3.

Fielder is in the midst of an otherworldly stretch, as he's now had five straight multi-hit games -- including four consecutive games with three hits -- and collected five home runs, 15 RBI and nine runs scored in that span. Fielder leads the league in batting average (.371) and RBI (38), and he's among the league leaders in a number of other categories. It's been quite a comeback year for the 31-year-old.
May 27 - 12:17 AM

Prince Fielder had another nice night at the dish in Sunday's victory over the Yankees, going 3-for-5 with a double and two RBI.

He is absolutely killing it at the plate lately, raising his slash line to .358/.412/.551 with Sunday's three-hit attack. Fielder now has 32 RBI to go along with his eight home runs.
May 24 - 11:39 PM

Prince Fielder homered again and plated three runs on Saturday, leading the Rangers in a 15-4 rout over the Yankees.

Fielder finished the afternoon 3-for-4 plus a walk, with three runs scored and the aforementioned three RBI. His two-run blast came off Branden Pinder in the seventh inning, increasing the Rangers lead to 15-1 at the time. He has been on fire at the dish in recent weeks and is now slashing a monster .351/.407/.544 with eight long balls and 30 RBI.
May 23 - 4:13 PM

Prince Fielder blasted a pair of home runs and drove home four runs on Friday as the Rangers outlasted the Yankees 10-9 in a wild game in New York.

The Rangers broke the game open by scoring seven runs in the third inning, with Fielder's three-run blast off starter Michael Pineda serving as the big blow. He tacked on a solo shot off Chasen Shreve in the seventh inning which would end up looming large. He's having a terrific season in the middle of the Rangers lineup, batting .341/.397/.521 with seven homers and 27 RBI.
May 22 - 11:09 PM

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

Fielder's fifth-inning RBI single pulled the Rangers to within 3-2, but the Royals would add to their lead and ultimately win 6-3. The RBI gave the big first baseman 20 driven in for the season. He's also hit four home runs and scored 13. The counting stats aren't fantastic, but Fielder is hitting a solid .348/.405/.493 and barring injury, the power numbers should be there by the end of the year.
May 14 - 5:28 PM

Prince Fielder went 3-for-4 with a two-run homer in the Rangers' 5-2 win over the Royals on Wednesday.

Fielder's lack of power has gotten more attention than his .344 average, but he doubled his homer total from two to four in the series against the Royals. More bombs should be on the way.
May 13 - 11:17 PM

Prince Fielder went 2-for-5 with a solo home run, contributing to Monday's 8-2 victory over the Royals.

Fielder tacked on in garbage time, clubbing a solo shot off of Franklin Morales to give the Rangers their eighth run. It's only his third home run, but he has otherwise hit well, batting .336/.393/.469 with 15 RBI.
May 11 - 11:21 PM

Prince Fielder went 2-for-4 with a solo homer Friday against the Athletics.

It was his second home run of the season and traveled at a distance of 441 feet. That's the Prince Fielder we remember. After missing most of 2014 due to neck surgery, the 30-year-old is batting .341/.389/.477 across his first 22 games this season.
