ARLINGTON -- The Rangers expect Prince Fielder will have season-ending surgery to repair a herniated disk in his neck in the next few weeks, general manager Jon Daniels announced Monday.
Fielder was examined by Dr. Drew Dossett on Monday, who confirmed the diagnosis of Dr. Richard Watkins in Los Angeles last week, recommending the surgery. Fielder missed nearly the entire 2014 season following surgery to repair a herniated disk in his neck. This herniation is just above the fusion from his first surgery.
