Rangers manager Ron Washington will bat Prince Fielder third ahead of Adrian Beltre and Alex Rios.

Ron Washington is a skipper who manages by feel more so than statistical analysis. Logic would seem to dictate that the Rangers lineup would have been Beltre, Prince, Rios (R,L,R handed hitters), but Washington said, Im just not moving Beltre out of the fourth hole, because he has seen Beltre struggle when batting 3rd, (.196 avg in 54 PA with TEX batting 3rd, career .281 though, so can you say small sample size). Although maybe not the most logical decision, it should not change either players fantasy value one way or the other heading into the season.
