Cold: Prince Fielder
Have an idea on what has been going on? It’s been the Rangers bats, not pitching, that have caused some concern. Prince Fielder has been spectacular for the Rangers in 2015, someone who has to be a strong contender for comeback player of the year. But the trip to Seattle wasn’t too kind to the big fella, as it wasn’t for the whole Rangers team.
Fielder has hit a disappointing .227 (6-for-27) for the Rangers in the past week, including just one extra base hit, a double in Saturdays game against the A’s. His two RBI’s in the past ten games is also alarming, as the Rangers will need him to drive in runs down the stretch.
In my opinion, Prince Fielder is the most important Ranger down the stretch. You know what you are going to get from Beltre, but Fielder is the guy who will have to step up in the middle of the order. If he can get going, especially with Choo getting on in front of him, then this Rangers team has the ability to score with anybody in the AL.
