Prince Fielder returns to Texas due to sleep problems


Prince Fielder has been sent back to Dallas from Rangers camp in order to address chronic sleeping problems, the Rangers have announced. He’ll likely undergo a sleep study.

Better now than once the grind of the season starts. Sleep deprivation is no joke. And many sorts of sleep irregularities can be addressed with fairly straightforward fixes. It’s often a bigger hurdle to simply realize that you’re not sleeping as well as you need to and to deal with it rather than just brush it off or try to bull through it.

Fielder will be counted on to continue the rebound he showed last year when he hit .305/.378/.463 with 23 homers.
