Free agent first baseman Prince Fielder visited with the Texas Rangers Friday as part of his free-agent tour.
USA Today first reported the meeting, which was confirmed by a baseball source.
Fielder's meeting with the Rangers doesn't mean he's Texas bound though.

Two notes of interest to pass along tonight.
First, according to multiple reports, Josh Hamilton’s father-in-law, Michael Dean Chadwick, has decided not to serve as Ham
Another week with Prince Fielder still on the free-agent market, and more billionaires lining up to potentially buy the Dodgers in an auction, led to another round of "will the Dodgers make a late run at Fielder?" questions.

The Rangers met on Friday with free-agent first baseman Prince Fielder at a Dallas-area hotel, according to multiple media reports.
I know, I know. It's the doldrums of the off-season. We sit with bated breath, waiting for news on who Prince Fielder is talking to today, when Yu Darvish is going to sign, where Albert Pujols is buying his house, why Alex Rodriguez is wearing hipster glasses, and what is in the Derek Jeter gift basket du jour. And we complain when we have nothing to talk about that afternoon...
