According the ESPN, Texas Rangers first baseman Prince Fielder is expected to have season-ending fusion surgery to repair a herniated disk in his neck.

Fielder's symptoms got worse earlier this week and he saw spine specialist Dr. Drew Dossett on Thursday morning. It was recommended that he have surgery to take care of the problem, which requires a three- to four-month recovery period that would end his season.

General manager Jon Daniels said Fielder will get a second opinion, but he expects the original recommendation to be confirmed.
Fielder was acquired in a trade with the Detroit Tigers back in November along with second baseman Ian Kinsler. The Tigers also agreed to pay $30 million of Fielder's salary. He was batting .247 with three homers and 16 RBIs before the injury.
