Prince Fielder finished Wednesday's 4-4 tie versus the White Sox 1-for-3 with an RBI single.

Fielder's first-inning single brought in the first of three Ranger runs. The early returns are encouraging, as Fielder is batting .308 with a home run and five RBI. The first baseman missed most of the 2014 season after undergoing neck surgery. Fielder could be due to post some big numbers with a return to good health.

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.

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."
Feb 9 - 3:46 PM

Prince Fielder (neck) declared Friday that he's fully healthy and ready to go.

In good spirits, Fielder quipped, "I'll play a pickup game right now" during the team's awards dinner on Friday. The veteran slugger is eager to put the disappointing 2014 season behind him and wants to return to playing every day next season. Fielder hit just .247/.360/.360 with three homers and 16 RBI over 42 games in his first season as a Ranger before being shut down with the neck issue.

Rangers activated 1B Prince Fielder from the 60-day disabled list.

Fielder underwent cervical fusion of the C5-C6 discs in his neck in May. He was already swinging a bat again as of late-September and appears on track for spring training, barring any setbacks.

Prince Fielder (neck) has begun swinging a bat.

Working his way back from May neck surgery, Fielder is "starting to get back in more of a lifting and baseball program than the rehab program," according to general manager Jon Daniels. Barring any setbacks, he'll head into spring training at 100 percent.

Rangers general manager Jon Daniels said Thursday that there's an outside chance Prince Fielder (neck) could take some swings before the end of the season.

The first baseman isn't going to return this year after having surgery for cervical fusion of the C5-C6 discs in his neck back in May. But, it would be a nice step and help ease Fielder's mind going into the offseason if he's able to begin swinging the bat in September.

Rangers transferred 1B Prince Fielder from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

The move clears space on the 40-man roster for the addition of Justin Marks. Fielder, of course, is done for the season after undergoing neck surgery last month.

Prince Fielder underwent successful neck surgery on Tuesday.

Fielder had surgery for cervical fusion of the C5-C6 discs in his neck. He's expected to be sidelined for 3-4 months, which essentially ends his season. It will be interesting to see if the Rangers make a run at Kendrys Morales in the coming weeks. Fielder, 30, is still owed approximately $144 million through 2020.

Rangers placed 1B Prince Fielder on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 17, with a herniated C5-C6 disc in neck.

Fielder will seek another opinion, but the anticipation is that he will soon undergo season-ending surgery. A procedure would sideline him for 3-4 month, so he's expected to be fine by the time spring training rolls around. Mitch Moreland will handle first base while Fielder is out.

Prince Fielder (neck) will undergo cervical fusion surgery on Tuesday.

Recovery is typically three to four months, which essentially ends his season. It's brutal news for the Rangers, who can't seem to catch a break on the injury front. Fielder, 30, is still owed approximately $144 million through 2020.

According to Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Prince Fielder is considering undergoing season-ending surgery to repair the herniated disc in his neck.

Fielder paid a visit to spine specialist Dr. Drew Dossett on Thursday at the Carrell Clinic in Dallas, Texas while his Rangers teammates were opening a four-game series at Detroit's Comerica Park. The big first baseman received a nerve-root injection this past weekend, but it apparently hasn't alleviated the pain being caused by his herniated disc. The Rangers continue to be battered by bad luck.

Prince Fielder (back, arm) will not travel with the Rangers to Detroit after Wednesday's game.

Fielder, who is dealing with a herniated disc in his back that's led to weakness in his arm, is set to visit Dr. Drew Dossett on Thursday. Depending on what Dossett says, it's possible he'll rejoin the Rangers at some point during the four-game series. The Rangers to this point have considered Fielder day-to-day, but it's beginning to sound like a trip to the disabled list may be a possibility.
