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.

Prince Fielder hit two RBI singles in three at-bats as the Rangers topped the Athletics on Tuesday.

Prince Fielder went 2-for-3 with an RBI single in Monday's win over the Athletics.

Fielder homered on Sunday as well, so he's had a nice couple of days. The slugger is looking to get back into the swing of things after missing most of last season due to neck surgery. He hit only three home runs and knocked in 16 runs in 178 plate appearances in 2014.
Mar 9 - 7:24 PM

Prince Fielder went 1-for-3 with a home run and three RBI Sunday versus the Indians.

Fielder lost most of his 2014 season due to neck problems which ultimately resulted in surgery. He was declared completely healthy last month by Dr. Drew Dossett. Fielder is still only 30 years old and could still put up some seriously good power numbers in a bounce-back season.
Mar 8 - 9:05 PM

Prince Fielder (neck) was given a clean bill of health Monday from Dr. Drew Dossett.

Fielder appeared in only 42 games last summer for the Rangers before undergoing season-ending cervical fusion surgery. The 30-year-old first baseman is a strong bounceback candidate for the 2015 fantasy campaign. He told fans and media in January that he felt "ready to play a pickup game right now."
