Texas Rangers 1B Prince Fielder (neck) has a herniated disk in his neck. He received a nerve root injection Saturday, May 17, and the hope is that he'll return Tuesday, May 20. Fielder has been bothered by a stiff neck all season.
Fantasy Tip: At least we have some answers to Fielder's struggles. Mitch Moreland figures to take the bulk of the time in Fielder's absence. However Michael Choice could figure in the rotation against left-handers. Both are relegated to AL-only leagues or deep mixed formats. There's a chance Fielder could still wind up on the DL.

Texas Rangers OF Shin-Soo Choo (ankle) is not in the starting lineup, as expected, Tuesday, April 22. He's dealing with a sprained left ankle and could land on the disabled list. Choo said he still has pain in his ankle.
Fantasy Tip: Michael Choice, the only other outfielder on the team's 40-man roster, is starting in place of Choo. Choice would become a popular addition in AL leagues if Choo lands on the DL. Stay tuned.
