The Texas Rangers have placed 32-year old lefty swinging DH/1B Prince Fielder and 34-year old lefty swinging outfielder Shin-Soo Choo on the 15-day disabled list. Fielder has a herniated disc in his neck and it is in a different area than when he had surgery the first time around to fix it. Surgery is a really option for Fielder this time around and if he has it, it will end his 2016 season. Fielder has played in 89 games for the Rangers this year and he is 69 of 326 (.212 avg, .626 OPS) with 29 runs scored, 8 homers and 44 RBIs. Fielder has played in 289 games in his first three years with the Rangers and he is 293 of 1,089 (.269 avg, .760 OPS) with 126 runs scored, 34 homers and 158 RBIs. It’s starting to look like the Tigers ripped off the Rangers in the Kinsler/Fielder deal of a few years ago. Choo is on the D.L. with lower back inflammation and he should only miss a couple of weeks. Choo has played in 33 games for the Rangers so far this year and he is 32 of 123 (.260 avg, .844 OPS) with 22 runs scored, 7 homers, 17 RBIs and 4 stolen bases. Choo has played in 305 games in his first three years with the Rangers and he is 295 of 1,133 (.260 avg, .789 OPS) with 174 runs scored, 42 homers, 139 RBIs and 11 stolen bases.
