Fielder sidelined with neck issue
First baseman Prince Fielder has been diagnosed with a herniated disc in his neck and will be sidelined for the next couple of days. He has received an injection that the Rangers hope will allieviate the problem. A herniated disc in the neck is not as serious as one in the lower back.
THe Rangers are not putting Fielder on the disabled list. But they suspect this may have cost him some of the power he has been missing lately.
