Prince Fielder Feels Great in First Rangers Workout

Kelly Gavin, Texas Rangers

So much is new this spring for Prince Fielder.

The All-Star slugger took the field for the first time with the Texas Rangers on Wednesday, the day before the first official full-squad workout.

Fielder says he had a nice, easy day meeting his new teammates after reporting to camp. They were on the field for more than an hour, taking grounders and then some batting practice.

The Rangers acquired Fielder from Detroit in November in exchange for All-Star second baseman Ian Kinsler.

After cutting off his dreadlocks during the offseason and going through MMA workouts, Fielder appears trim. Asked he if had lost any weight, Fielder chuckled and said he didn't know for sure since he doesn't allow any scales in his house.  But he said he feels great.
