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. Tue, Dec 8, 2015 05:51:00 PM

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.

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.

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.

Fielder also got the game-winning rally started in the ninth, leading off with a hit before being replaced by Drew Stubbs, who eventually scored the winning run.

Prince Fielder broke an eighth-inning tie with a two-run home run, helping the Rangers top the Astros on Monday.

Fielder finished 2-for-4 on the evening. The Astros had tied the game at 3-3 in the seventh, and the DH broke it when he blasted a Will Harris offering over the fence in center field for a two-run jack. It's only his second home run since August 9, but he's otherwise had a solid bounce-back season, batting .309/.378/.463 with 19 home runs, 77 RBI, and 66 runs scored.

Prince Fielder went 1-for-5 with a two-run double and two strikeouts in Saturday's loss to the A's.

Fielder's two-run double in the ninth inning drew the Rangers to within 5-3, but they wouldn't score another run in the frame. The big man has posted some lovely numbers this season, including a .306/.377/.457 triple slash. Plus, 18 homers and 75 RBI. Fielder has just one previous season with a .300 batting average (2012). We'll see if he can maintain his current average.

Prince Fielder went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run as the Rangers outlasted the Padres 8-6 on Tuesday.

Fielder took Andrew Cashner yard in the first inning with a man aboard to stake the Rangers to an early 2-0 lead. It's his first home run since August 8. Nevertheless, the first baseman is batting .317/.380/.477 with 18 home runs and 73 RBI in what has been a great bounce-back season after missing most of 2014 with a neck injury.

Prince Fielder went 2-for-4 with a pair of singles in Sunday's win over the Orioles.

Nothing spectacular here for Fielder, but he continues to rake, as he's done all season. The big man is slashing .316/.379/.470 with 17 homers and 78 RBI. If he can keep that average on the right side of .300, this would go down as just the second season of his career in which he's achieved that feat.

Prince Fielder is not in the Rangers' lineup Sunday.

Fielder was also off on Wednesday, as he's received an uncharacteristic two days off rest over the last week. Mike Napoli is in the designated hitter spot Sunday, with Mitch Moreland covering first base.

The homer was part of an eight-run 11th-inning outburst for the visiting Rangers. Fielder is batting .324/.390/.501 with 17 home runs and 66 RBI in 107 games this season.
