Fielder said Thursday that he is doing a little rehab, but nothing too serious or baseball-wise yet. He had cervical fusion of two disks in his neck May 27.
Analysis: Speaking to reporters in the clubhouse for the first time since the operation, Fielder said he is motivated to get back but isn't pushing anything. He isn't expected to play again this season, but should be ready for spring training. Fielder had played in 547 consecutive games since 2010 when he played his last game May 16. He hit .247 with three home runs and 16 RBIs in 42 games in his first season with Texas.

Analysis: Fielder's only hit gave him none for extra bases in his last nine games. His .311 slugging percentage ranks him 172nd in the majors and is the 21st-worst mark among qualifying hitters. He is one of the biggest fantasy busts in recent memory for sure.

Analysis: Fielder ended a 13-game homerless streak to start the season. Told before the game that he was a game away from tying the longest drought to start a season in his career, Fielder casually figured it was about time for a long ball. "I was just messing around," he said. Fantasy owners would probably like to see a little more intensity and production from him rather than jokes with reporters.
