Rangers | Prince Fielder considering surgery

Texas Rangers 1B Prince Fielder (neck, back), who is dealing with a herniated disc in his neck, is seriously considering surgery that would end his season. Fielder is currently meeting with spine specialist Dr. Drew Dossett Thursday, May 22. The nerve that is pinched is causing weakness in Fielder's left arm. 1B Mitch Moreland would continue as the regular first baseman if Fielder needs surgery.

Fantasy Tip: The Rangers have been ravaged by injuries all year, and Fielder would be the 17th player on their roster to go on the DL. It might be the straw that breaks the camel's back for their season if he needs surgery. We might know more later today on whether surgery is his best option. Stay tuned.
