Continuing neck problems ending Prince Fielder’s career, sources say; Rangers will still owe DH $44 million

Three sources close to the situation confirmed Tuesday that Fielder’s career is over after a decade in the majors due to a pair of disk herniations in his neck. An official announcement will be made Wednesday afternoon in Arlington where, presumably, Fielder, still in a neck brace from his second spinal fusion surgery in the last 27 months, will address the decision.

Fielder, 32, will be declared “medically disabled,” as doctors will not clear him to return to baseball over the perilous risk to his spine from the two cervical fusions, according to sources. The Rangers were aware of this possibility at the time he underwent the surgery in July. Teammates such as Adrian Beltre said at the time they were “shocked” over the development. In that regard, the news Tuesday, which broke about an hour before a 7-5 win over Colorado, wasn’t a complete surprise to his teammates, but was depressing nonetheless.

Rangers’ Prince Fielder has herniated disk | texasrangers.com

Free Joey Gallo!

The Rangers could be without designated hitter Prince Fielder for the rest of the season after he was diagnosed with another herniated disk in his neck.

Both he and outfielder Shin-Soo Choo, who is dealing with inflammation in his lower back, were placed on the 15-day disabled list on Wednesday. The Rangers have recalled infielder Hanser Alberto and outfielder Delino DeShields from Triple-A Round Rock.

The herniation is just above a previous injury that was surgically repaired on May 27, 2014, forcing Fielder to miss the rest of that season. Fielder has been bothered by the problem for some time, but did not report it to the Rangers until Monday.
