According to Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Prince Fielder is considering undergoing season-ending surgery to repair the herniated disc in his neck.

Fielder paid a visit to spine specialist Dr. Drew Dossett on Thursday at the Carrell Clinic in Dallas, Texas while his Rangers teammates were opening a four-game series at Detroit's Comerica Park. The big first baseman received a nerve-root injection this past weekend, but it apparently hasn't alleviated the pain being caused by his herniated disc. The Rangers continue to be battered by bad luck.

The Rangers to this point have considered Fielder day-to-day, but it's beginning to sound like a trip to the disabled list may be a possibility.
