Rangers | Prince Fielder becoming leader

Mon, 01 Jun 2015 10:18:49 -0700

Texas Rangers 1B Prince Fielder, who leads the American League with a .359 average and is fifth with a .975 OPS, has showed more leadership with Texas this year, and he's serving as a mentor to OF Delino DeShields Jr. and RP Keone Kela, according to team officials.

Fantasy Tip: Fielder ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) was scorching hot in May (.377-9-28) and has proven that his injury last year is behind him. He should continue to be a very strong FantasyScore option this season.

Rangers | Prince Fielder beating the shift

Thu, 28 May 2015 13:31:11 -0700

Texas Rangers 1B Prince Fielder, who has 10 home runs, 12 doubles and 38 RBI this year, has done a much better job of going the other way with pitches to beat the shift against him. All of his home runs have been pulled, but 28.2% of his batted balls have gone the opposite way, which is more than 3% from his last full season in 2013. He's also excelling against pitches on the outer third part of the plate, hitting .351 with a .505 slugging percentage and a 20.7 miss percentage compared to a .251 average, .361 slugging percentage and 26.3 miss percentage in 2013.

Fantasy Tip: Fielder ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) has responded nicely after a lost season in 2014, and he's been a steal for those that drafted him this year. The addition of Josh Hamilton to the Texas lineup should give Fielder even more protection, and he should continue to be a strong FantasyScore play.

Rangers | Prince Fielder off to scorching start

Thu, 28 May 2015 12:14:35 -0700

Texas Rangers 1B Prince Fielder has hit nine of his 10 home runs in May and has the American League's best batting average at .368. Fielder went to designated-hitter duty this season, and he is using bats from 3B Adrian Beltre's collection.

Fantasy Tip: Fielder ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) is a year removed from a neck issue that may have also hampered his final season with the Detroit Tigers. Surgery, a new attitude, and Beltre's bats appear to have helped out. A lot of it is also attributed to Fielder, who is now a must-start in FantasyScore leagues.

Rangers | Prince Fielder trading power for average

Sun, 17 May 2015 20:49:02 -0700

Texas Rangers 1B Prince Fielder is hitting .344 this season, but 39 of his 52 hits have been singles, and he has five home runs through 38 games.

Fantasy Tip: Although the average is certainly nice, Fielder ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) is only on pace for 21 homers. With that in mind, there are other options at available at FantasyScore in the same price range that offer more upside.

Rangers | Prince Fielder using the whole field

Fri, 17 Apr 2015 10:34:49 -0700

Texas Rangers 1B Prince Fielder is hitting .400 to start the 2015 season but doesn't have any home runs yet. Opposing pitchers continue to throw him away, and Fielder hasn't tried to pull pitches, instead taking what the pitchers are giving him and using the big part of the field to foil the shift. He has also swung and missed on just four of 62 pitches off the plate on the outside. Fielder said this spring that he knows his swing better and his approach at the plate is more sound.

Fantasy Tip: Fielder ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) is off to a great start this year, minus the home runs. That should be forgiven by his fantasy owners in favor of good health. If his solid approach continues, Fielder could be in for a great year, especially since the power should eventually come. Don't be overly concerned that he's facing a lefty (J.A. Happ) Friday night.
