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.
Wed, May 21, 2014 12:07:00 PM

Prince Fielder (back, neck) remained out of the Rangers' lineup Wednesday.

Fielder sat out a couple games over the weekend with a herniated disc in his back and then missed Tuesday's contest with numbness in his arm. He remains day-to-day. Mitch Moreland is handling first base Wednesday.

Prince Fielder has been scratched from the Rangers' lineup Tuesday against the Mariners.

Fielder sat out Saturday and Sunday due to a herniated disc and is now out Tuesday with arm weakness. The Rangers are hoping that he will be ready for action on Wednesday. Fielder is batting just .247 with a .720 OPS and three home runs in 42 games this year for Texas.

Prince Fielder got an injection Saturday for a herniated disc in his neck and will miss at least two games.

The injury does not require surgery, and nor should it require a 15-day disabled list stint. Fielder, who has a weak .247 batting average and .720 OPS in his first season with the Rangers, told reporters Saturday that he's been dealing with neck pain since March. Mitch Moreland is playing first base and Shin-Shoo Choo is batting third on Saturday night against the Blue Jays.
