Trade: Prince Fielder to Rangers

A big trade hit baseball on Wednesday night, and when we say "big," we don't just mean the implications. The Detroit Tigers' Prince Fielder, one of MLB's more sizable stars, is moving to the Texas Rangers, along with $30 million, in exchange for second baseman Ian Kinsler. The deal on the field seems like a win for Texas; they get Fielder, still a solid hitter even if his power has waned of late, and also clear a spot for promising youngster Jurickson Profar. But Detroit saves more than $70 million, potentially allowing them to sign reigning Cy Young winner Max Scherzer.
