    CINCINNATI, OH - JULY 14: American League All-Star Prince Fielder #84 of the Texas Rangers bats in the seventh inning against National League All-Star Francisco Rodriquez #57 of the Milwaukee Brewers during the 86th MLB All-Star Game at the Great American Ball Park on July 14, 2015 in Cincinnati, Ohio.

    Prince Fielder missed the majority of the 2014 season after undergoing a cervical fusion procedure to fuse vertebra in his neck.

    But over the course of his career, Fielder has been a huge pain in the neck to the Houston Astros in their home park, and that's exactly where Fielder will start the second half of his tremendous comeback season.

    In Fielder's 56 career games in Houston, he owns a .335 batting average, a .420 on-base percentage and a 1.032 OPS. He has 15 home runs and 47 RBIs in those games — both numbers that are career-highs for Fielder in an opposing park.

    In other words, Fielder has been a human wrecking ball in Houston, dating back to his days with the Milwaukee Brewers when the Astros were in the National League.

    It'd be nice for the Rangers if he could continue that trend this weekend with the possibility of pulling closer to the Astros in the division standings very much in front of Fielder and his teammates.
