Description: Rangers first baseman Prince Fielder is not in the Rangers starting lineup against the White Sox on Wednesday.
Insight: This is Fielder's first day off of the season, and it makes sense to do it now because Fielder is just a .160 career hitter versus White Sox starter Chris Sale.

Insight: Fielder is batting .365 in May with a 1.010 OPS and is beating up right-handed pitchers to the tune of a .391 batting average this season. He's a must start.
