Rangers | Prince Fielder, Leonys Martin scratched

Tue, 20 May 2014 13:43:47 -0700

Updating a previous report, Texas Rangers 1B Prince Fielder (neck, back) has been scratched from the lineup Tuesday, May 20. He wasn't feeling pain but instead weakness in his arm and will rest. OF Leonys Martin (neck) was also scratched with neck pain.

Fantasy Tip: Get them out of your daily lineups. Hopefully this doesn't exacerbate things for Fielder, but you got to wonder how much longer he can do without needing a DL trip.
