Prince Fielder, a baseball player for the Texas Rangers, is returning to Texas for a sleep study after having difficulty sleeping during spring training, reports Sporting News.
Prince Fielder’s got to get his sheep in a row before he can move forward with baseball.
The Rangers designated hitter is briefly returning to Texas to undergo a sleep study after disclosing he’s had difficulty sleeping throughout spring training, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported Wednesday.
“It sounds like he’s having disjointed sleeping,” assistant general manager Thad Levine said. “We figure at this time of year instead of asking him to gut it out why not actually have him evaluated.”
Levine added that he is unsure of the cause of Fielder’s sleep trouble and questioned whether it could possibly be snoring.
Fielder — an overwhelming choice as Sporting News’ 2015 American League Comeback Player of the Year — is expected to miss the team’s next three games scheduled for Wednesday, Thursday and Friday against the Reds, White Sox and Brewers, respectively.
