Hot Stove Stunner: Detroit Trades Prince Fielder To Texas

The five-time All-Star is headed to the Rangers for second baseman Ian Kinsler, according to reports.

The Tigers will miss Fielder's offense, but Kinsler, an eight-year veteran and three-time All-Star, is no slouch at the plate and certainly plugs a big hole in Detroit's infield.

Also, since Fielder is only entering year three of a nine-year, $214 million contract, there's certainly going to be some cash thrown in.

Source: Prince Fielder for Ian Kinsler is 1 for 1. And money for sure is going back to the Rangers. @JonHeymanCBS had deal first.

How might Fielder, who only hit 55 home runs in two years with Detroit, fare with the Rangers? This overlay shows the potential for a big increase in offense.
