The Texas Rangers could be without their power hitting 1B, Prince Fielder, who they acquired in the offseason from the Detroit Tigers for Ian Kinsler.  Fielder has struggled mightily in his 42 games played as a Ranger, hitting just .247 with 3 home runs and 16 RBI.

GM Jon Daniels has informed reporters on a conference call that Fielder is scheduled for season-ending surgery next Tuesday. They will seek one final opinion before proceeding with the procedure, but surgery appears to be a near certainty. As Daniels explains, a cervical MRI — which is not part of any standard physical — would’ve been required to catch any such issue with Fielder. - MLBTradeRumors
