Texas Rangers 1B Prince Fielder will bat ahead of 3B Adrian Beltre in the lineup for 2014, with Fielder going third and Beltre fourth. Columnist Gerry Fraley speculates OF Shin-Soo Choo will bat leadoff. The second slot in the lineup was not disclosed by manager Ron Washington.
Fantasy Tip: A combination of a shorter right-field porch at The Ballpark in Arlington and hitting ahead of Adrian Beltre could help Fielder regain what seemed to be a lost stroke in 2013. You have to wonder if his personal issues (divorce) may have spilled over onto the diamond, and if he is past those issues Fielder could be gangbusters in 2014.
