Fantasy Impact: It's been a rough season for Rangers 1B/DH Prince Fielder, as he was only batting .212 with eight home runs, 44 RBI, 29 runs scored through 89 games played. His overall slash line is .212/.292/.334 and for the month of July, he was batting .170 with only one home run and three RBI over 47 at-bats. Rangers will have some flexibility at the DH position the rest of the way, as they started Rougned Odor at DH and had Jurickson Profar start at 2B on Monday night's game against the Athletics.

Fantasy Impact: Prince has been struggling all season so it would make sense that he was trying to play through an injury. At this point in the season, he is either a trade chip or someone to place in a DL spot. If you do not have a DL spot, in a season-long league, then he should be cut. Dynasty formats you might want to look for a trade or hold onto him.

On the season, Fielder sports a slash line of .219/.292/.348, to go along with seven home runs, 15 doubles, 41 RBI and 25 runs scored.

Prince Fielder went 2-for-4 with a double, run scored and RBI on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: It was the second multi-hit game in as many nights for Prince, who has now hit safely in each of his last 11 games. After his abysmal start to the season, Fielder has shown signs of life in June, posting an OPS over .800. Owners still want to see more, specifically in the power department, but hopefully he'll continue to heat up over the summer.

If you look at Lance McCullers' stats against the Rangers, you will see that he has allowed a 1.269 OPS, with Prince Fielder getting on base three times in four plate appearances. McCullers has allowed four walks, against only five strikeouts, in his matchups with the Rangers and allowed five runs in his first start off of the disabled list as well.

Fantasy Impact: Fielder only has a .541 OPS this season, but Friday may be the day where he straightens things out and goes off for DFS players. Although the Rangers do not have an extensive history against McCullers, they have smashed him and Fielder can build on his 21 RBI tonight. He does only have a .177 batting average in May, and has been limited to two home runs, but he could get out of his funk in a big way on Friday.

Prince Fielder went 0-for-2 with with one walk, one strikeout and one hit by pitch before being lifted for a pinch runner in the eighth inning. He's now 0-for-10 over the past three games with three strikeouts and one walk.

Fantasy Impact: Fielder is off to a horrendous start to the 2016 season and hasn't hit a home run since April 19th. On the season, he's batting .184 with two home runs, 20 RBI, eight runs scored and 28 strikeouts. It's tough to trust Fielder at this point in all fantasy formats.

Prince Fielder finished 0-for-3 against the Blue Jays on Friday night. This came after Fielder had two doubles against the White Sox on Thursday, which fantasy owners hoped would break him out of his sub-.200 batting average spell to begin May. Fielder has a .546 OPS this season.

Fantasy Impact: In any measure of the word, Fielder has had a disappointing beginning to the season, as he has a .194 batting average and two home runs this season. His 20 RBI salvage any value that Fielder could have, but fantasy owners have to be baffled by how bad Fielder has been in 2016. He has no hits in six at-bats against the Blue Jays' starter on Saturday, Marco Estrada, and has a .221 batting average and both home runs this season at home.

Prince Fielder went 0-for-4 with one strikeout in the Rangers 10-5 victory over the Tigers on Saturday afternoon.

Fantasy Impact: Fielder's average has dropped down below The Mendoza Line as he's now batting .198 on the season. Fielder has just two hits in his last 16 plate appearances and has been stuck at two home runs since April 19. He's in a great situation as the cleanup hitter in a solid Rangers lineup and playing a majority of his games in a hitters park, but he's clearly struggling. The month of May was his strongest last season where he batted .377 with nine home runs and 28 RBI and the fact that he's off to this slow of a start in 2016 is concerning.

Prince Fielder provided the Rangers with some offense on Saturday night going 2-for-4 with a double, an RBI and a run scored.

Fantasy Impact: Fielder has been struggling in the past week and a half, but Saturday's two hits is a positive sign that maybe the slugger is starting to see the ball better. He added another RBI giving him 17 total, a pretty good number for April despite his .207 batting average. Expect more as he starts hitting again.

Prince Fielder went 1-for-3 with an RBI single, a walk and a run scored.

Fantasy Impact: A day after the Rangers' offense produced only one late inning run, the bats woke up and produced 10 runs. Fielder's RBI single came in the third inning which was the beginning of a five run inning. Fielder has had some struggles early on, but their is no need to worry. Hitters like Fielder will get going; it's only a matter of time. In the mean time, he still leads the team with 15 RBI.

Prince Fielder went 0-for-5 with a strikeout in the Rangers' 4-3 loss to the White Sox on Saturday. Although he only has a .188 batting average, Fielder did have a five-game hitting streak coming into Saturday's contest.

Fantasy Impact: Fantasy owners have been frustrated with Fielder's low batting average and lack of extra-base hits, three, but he is fourth in the American League with 14 RBI. While it is nice that Fielder is on the mark in run production, that is a statistic that is completely dependent on opportunities; fortunately for Fielder, the players in front of him in the lineup (Delino DeShields, Adrian Beltre, and Nomar Mazara), have elite on-base potential. The power will come for Fielder and as long as he cashes in on his run producing opportunities, he is a top-10 1B with top-five potential.

Prince Fielder went 1-for-4 on Tuesday with a long two-run home run in the first inning off of Astros starter Scott Feldman.

Fantasy Impact: Fielder's .173 batting average is off to a slow start, but he's now up to two home runs and 13 RBI through the Rangers first 14 games. He's struck out at a high rate so far this season with 15 strikeouts, although his 13 RBI are currently leading the American League. Fantasy owners can expect the average to go up once Fielder heats up and the power numbers should be there all year in a potent Rangers lineup.

Prince Fielder went 1-for-4 on Monday night with two RBI. Fielder did strikeout twice but the two run single helped the Rangers win.

Fantasy Impact: Fielder hasn't been the .300 hitter that we saw from last season, but the nine runs driven in is a very good sign that Fielder is swinging the bat well with runners in scoring position. Prince always remains a home run threat and so far he is well on his way to driving in over 100 runs.

Fantasy Impact: Fielder got things going for the Rangers offense in the first inning Friday by driving in the first run. Fielder later scored and drew a pair of walks later in the game. As the first week of baseball comes to an end, Fielder owners have to feel good about how he has played. Prince has shown a bit of everything this week, driving in runs, getting base hits, a home run and having patience at the plate drawing walks.

Prince Fielder blasted his first homerun of the season Wednesday in a loss to the Mariners. Fielder went 1-for-3 with the HR, three RBI, a run scored and a walk.

Fantasy Impact: It did not take long for Prince Fielder to get going this year, as he now has four RBI in the first three games of the season. Three of them came Wednesday on his HR, but all good signs for Fielder and the type of season he could have.

Prince Fielder had the only hit of the day for the Rangers in their opener on Monday, but provided some of the only offense needed to get the victory over the Mariners. Fielder went 1-for-4 with an RBI single and two strikeouts.

Fantasy Impact: Fielder has proven over the last few years that he is more than just a power hitter. His power numbers have taken a hit, but his batting average has risen which makes him an interesting fantasy player. On Opening d Day, Prince showed his ability to just slap a ball for a hit. His HR will come, but a nice start to the season for Fielder despite the two strikeouts against Felix Hernandez.

Fielder led the Texas Rangers offensive barrage in what was easily the teams most important series of 2015 this week, getting out the brooms against the Houston Astros. Fielder is absolutely Raking right now, and owns a career .800 batting average with four hits in five plate appearances including two doubles, against the Seattle Mariners left handed pitcher James Paxton who will start on Friday.

Fantasy Impact: Daily owners will most likely have Fielder in their lineups already after watching him lead his team into first place in the AL West this week. If there is any concern with the Lefty vs Lefty matchup it need not scare you away Friday, as Fielder clearly sees the ball well when facing the southpaw James Paxton.

Fielder hit a two run Home Run in the first inning Tuesday off San Diego Padres starter Andrew Cashner. The Homer was just his third in the last 30 games. Despite his struggles the Rangers have managed to stay in the thick of the AL playoff race.

Fantasy Impact: Over the last 30 games Fielder has seen his average drop over 20 points to .317. Heading into August Fielder was on pace to hit for the highest average of his Career. We see it month in and month out, something as simple as as the flipping of the calendar into a new month can solve a MLB players woes. Fielder is too good of a player to continue slumping. Look for him to make a big push down the stretch. He should continue to be active in all leagues.

Fantasy Impact: After missing nearly all of 2014 due to injuries Fielder is clearly the front runner to be the AL come back player of the year this season. Fielder is hitting .329 with 16 homers and 62 RBI in 2015, barring an extend slump (which Fielder hasn't had this season) he will finish the year with a career best batting average.

Sun, Aug 2nd 12:44am EDT
By Mitch Cox

Prince Fielder continues to enjoy an outstanding 2015 as he stroked three more hits and scored two runs tonight in the Rangers 9-7 extra inning loss to the Giants.

Fantasy Impact: Fielder is hitting a cool .330 on the year and is among the league leaders in several offensive categories with 126 hits, 15 home runs and 59 RBI. He has to be a leading contender for AL Comeback Player of the Year honors.

Fielder was at it again on Tuesday night. He clubbed his 15th home run of the season to left center field, helping the Rangers to a 9-0 drubbing of the Colorado Rockies.

Fantasy Impact: Fielder continues to impress in 2015. One year removed from the worst season of his career, he's well on his way to one of his best. August is nearly upon us and Fielder is still hitting .341 which would be the best mark of his career. Fielder is a beast literally and figuratively owners who took the mid round flyer on him this season are certainly reaping the rewards.

After a miserable 2014 that was cut short by injury, Fielder is having a strong 2015. In the 86th midsummer classic on Tuesday All Star Prince Fielder helped lead the AL to victory with two RBI.

Fantasy Impact: Fielder has been getting on base all season long, and has been hitting his homers in bunches. He should be active in all leagues moving forward. The summer months in Arlington make his home ballpark a haven for home run hitters.

Fielder started the scoring for the Rangers with a sacrifice fly in the bottom of the first inning Friday. Fielder wasn't done there as he then homered in the fourth inning ahead of Adrian Beltre. Beltre followed with one of his own as the duo hit back to back home runs against Ian Kennedy to put the Rangers up for good.

Fantasy Impact: We felt a power surge was coming soon for Fielder, and sure enough over his last seven games he is slugging 1.030 with two home runs and four RBI. Realistically this is more of a flicker than a surge for a player with Fielders skill set, however you have to start somewhere. The All Star break is right around the corner perhaps at a bad time for Fielder. Don't be surprised if he goes deep again before hanging up the Texas Rangers red white and blue for a few days.

Prince Fielder got the Rangers offense going in the bottom of the first today. It was a mammoth shot, a good 20 rows deep off Angels left handed pitcher C.J. Wilson.

Fantasy Impact: It was only a matter of time before Fielder hit another 2015 home run. The dinger was his 13th of the season, and good for his 50th RBI. Fielder has been hitting for average and getting on base plenty. He tends to hit homers in bunches, so look out going into the break as he may hit a few more.

Fielder was 2-for-3 Thursday while also working a base on balls. While Fielder has just one home run over his last ten contests, he has continued to get on base at a very high rate. Reaching base 20-of-39 plate appearances his last 10 games.

Fantasy Impact: Fielder began the 2015 season hitting for a very high average however, it didn't come with much power in April. Then May came and he had a power surge hitting nine home runs and driving in 28 runs. He seemed to be in a similar holding pattern in June, putting the ball in play and getting on base. This would lead me to believe another run of homers is right around the corner for Fielder. If he keeps hitting for average he could be in for a career year, as we all know the power is coming.

Prince hit his 300th career home run in the top of the first inning today. This home run made history, as Prince and Cecil Fielder become just the second Father Son combination to have 300 each in Major League History. The other combination is Barry and Bobby Bonds.

Fantasy Impact: Fielder has been great all season, entering the game with a .347 batting average. He should be active in all leagues every day he is in the lineup.

Fielder had two hits, including a double, and a walk on Thursday against the A's. Fielder is just one HR shy of 300 for his career and he will look to reach this accomplishment on Friday against tough right handed pitcher Sonny Gray.

Fantasy Impact: After a torrid beginning to the season, Fielder has come back to Earth a bit lately. Getting Adrian Beltre back will help giving him more protection in the lineup and Fielder should be active in all leagues going forward as he can catch fire at any moment.

Prince Fielder went 1-for-2 with a double, a strikeout, and three walks against the White Sox on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Fielder has increased his walks each month so far this season, drawing five in April, eight in May, and 12 so far in June. His power has been mostly absent, however, and the RBI totals have come down significantly too. Regardless, Fielder remains a top-25 bat on the player rater.

Fielder enters Friday's contest one HR shy of 300. He would join his father Cecil (319) in the 300 HR club, making them the second father-son combination to accomplish this feat with Barry and Bobby Bonds being the only other. With Father's Day approaching this could make for a special moment for the Fielder family.

Fantasy Impact: Friday's matchup against Chris Sale is historically a tough one for Fielder, who is 4-for-25 with just one extra base hit in his career against Sale. Prince will look to change his fortunes against the tough lefty hurler tonight.

Prince Fielder is not in the lineup Thursday with no DH tonight in the final game of a four game series vs the Dodgers. The Rangers will look to Mitch Moreland's superior glove and hot bat to attempt to sweep LA.

Fantasy Impact: Prince will get a day off tonight after being a late addition to the lineup Wednesday vs tough lefty Clayton Kershaw. He faces another tough test Friday vs Chris Sale

Prince Fielder went 2-for-4 tonight including a ninth inning solo home run in the Rangers 5-3 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers.

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

Fantasy Impact: Fielder's production has slowed down considerably in June, batting a middling .261 with no home runs. This is coming after a ridiculous May (.377/9 HRs/28 RBI/18 R) and isn't too alarming, but hopefully Fielder regains that form soon.

Prince Fielder went 2-for-3 with two singles, two walks, and a run scored against the Royals on Saturday.

Prince Fielder went 2-for-4 with a pair of singles, a RBI, a walk, and a strikeout against the White Sox on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact: It wasn't a flashy day for Fielder, but he continues to hit for a ridiculous average, .358, which is second in the league. He has some work to do to catch up to the league leaders in homers, as he's currently only at 10 (tied for 24th), but fantasy owners should continue to enjoy whatever Fielder does these days. It's all good.

Fantasy Impact: Through his last 10 games he has been unstoppable, he is batting.455 with 5 homers and 16 RBI. He doesn't look like he will slow down any time soon. He just recently over took Dee Gordon and is now the MLB average leader. It is amazing to see him having a lot of success once again. If you are looking to acquire him you may not be able to.

Fantasy Impact: Get your ballots ready because Prince Fielder is quickly becoming a MVP candidate. He is having one of the greatest seasons of his career. He is finally back and he has returned to dominance. He likely won't keep up his .365 average but he will be productive all season long.

Fielder was a different animal in the recent New York series. The Rangers were able to sweep and in that game he went 3-for-5 with 2 RBI. On the season he is hitting .358/.412/.964 with 8 homers, 32 RBI and 0 stolen bases.

Fantasy Impact: After the season he had last year it would seem pretty strange to think of him as a top 10 player but so far this season he is in the top 10 or very close. We went into the draft knowing that he would be a great bargain but we never expected it to be this sweet. If you have him hold on tight and if you don't, good luck.

Fantasy Impact: This was easily Fielder's best game of the season and it was very much a reward for patient fantasy owners. He got off to a fantastic start but the power wasn't there at the start of the season but owners stuck with him and here he comes. He looks like he is back to being an elite player.

Fantasy Impact: While Nelson Cruz and Bryce Harper have been getting all the press for their fantastic starts, Prince Fielder has been flying under the radar but has also benefited from a great start. He is the owner of the best batting average in The American League and getting no attention for it. He is back as a fantasy force and he can help your team in a lot of ways. However, he will be very expensive.

The Rangers triumphed over The Royals 5-2 on Wednesday. In that game Fielder went 3-for-4 with 2 singles and a 2 run home run. He is now batting a very robust .346/.396/.889 with 4 home run, 19 RBI and 0 stolen bases.

Fantasy Impact: The Rangers are playing the best baseball they have played all season and Fielder has elevated his play to match them. I say elevated but he was already playing extremely well, he just got better. The home run power has arrived and he is looking unstoppable. He is starting to become a must own.

Fantasy Impact: He has been incredible for The Rangers this year. He has hit in key situations and just about in any other situation. He would be a great addition to any fantasy baseball team but if you are looking to acquire him, but his value is building.

Fantasy Impact: Fielder has been hot all year and this game was no different. The Rangers are picking it up of late and now he will get more and more chances. He has been propping up his teammates all year but now will get some support. If you are looking to trade for him you better do it soon.

He only got 1 hit but it was a 2 run double. He is now hitting; .350/.407/.893 with 2 homers, 13 RBI and 0 stolen bases.

Fantasy Impact: The only gripe with Fielder's game right now is his lack of power, but he has consistently shown he can drive the ball into the gaps and get on base, so it is a very minor one. He is having a great season, even without the bombs. His value is still low enough to make a trade but be sure to mention the lack of round-trippers in negotiations. He will run into a few balls before the season is done.

Fielder was one of the few Rangers to solve the Athletics' pitching in Sunday's 7-1 loss, connecting for 2 base hits. He is now hitting a robust .358/.419/. .903 with 2 homers, 11 RBI and 0 stolen bases.

Fantasy Impact: Fielder stuck to the script on Sunday, playing the part as The Rangers' best player just like he has done all season. It's hard to believe that he has done so well with the offense the way it is but he continues to swing a hot bat. He is in the midst of his best season in a long time and the team he plays for will drive down his perceived value on the trade market. This is the time to pursue him.

In a game that The Rangers won 7-1, Prince Fielder went 2-for-5 with a home run and 3 RBI. He is now batting; .386/.435/.944 with 1 home run, 9 RBI and 0 stolen bases.

Fantasy Impact: Looking at his lack of home runs you may have been under the impression that Fielder was struggling but in fact he has been the best Ranger so far. He has been smoking the ball and it is great to see his power coming to life. He is off to a great start and if he hits for more power, he will get even better. He is currently having a bounce back season and it wold be a great idea to target him on the trade market, but at this point it will be very difficult.

Fantasy Impact: Fielder has been on a tear of late and he is currently one of the hottest players in the league. He is still without a home run but I have a feeling we won't have to wait much longer. He is hitting the ball better than we have seen in a long time and if he can return to his production levels of the past he will once again be a top first baseman.

Prince Fielder picked up another 3 hits on Friday. He now has 4 straight games with a hit and is batting .421 for the season.

Fantasy Impact: He has been the best player for the Rangers so far in this young season, although he hasn't been getting much help from his teammates. The power has yet to show up but it is certainly on it's way. His other counting stats will also get going when those around him start to wake up. Fielder's value has been the highest it has been in more than a year, yet it's still a great time to buy in.

Fielder's bat showed up once again in Thursday's win against The Athletics. He smacked 2 hits for the second time in this series.

Fantasy Impact: Thus far in the season The Rangers' offense has been pretty all or nothing but the one guy that has been consistently getting hits is Prince Fielder. He has yet to hit a home run but he has been getting on base at a great clip and the power will come. He has been showing that the faith drafters have in him had not been misplaced.

The Texas Rangers got their first win Tuesday on the back of slugger Prince Fielder. He collected his first 2 hits of the season as well as his first 2 RBI.

Fantasy Impact: This is the side of Fielder that we have been dying to see. It's still very early but we didn't see much of this from him last year. He had a great Spring and this is looking more and more like a bounce back year. Buy in while you can.

Prince Fielder is looking to have a major bounce-back after his first season with the Rangers. That season was cut short due to injury but he looks healthy this spring. Fielder is batting .294 with one home run and six RBI.

Fantasy Impact: The biggest piece of news here is that Fielder is healthy. He is expected to be a huge piece to the Rangers offense this season and as long as he remains healthy, he should put up elite power numbers. Fielder will be a steal on draft day because of his injury-shortened 2014.

Texas Rangers' first baseman Prince Fielder is fully recovered from mid-season neck surgery and he is conducting his normal off-season regime. He will be ready to go when Spring Training rolls around. (Source:

Fantasy Impact: After a very disappointing 2014 season, Fielder makes an excellent draft target in the coming season. Many fantasy owners will be scared away by last year's performance, causing him to slip in drafts and could create an opportunity to get a premier power hitter for a discounted price. He has a very good chance to become 2015's top bounce back performer; draft accordingly.
