Prince Fielder is contemplating season-ending surgery, according to multiple reports.

He did not make the trip back to Detroit to face his old team on Thursday because he was scheduled to meet with spine specialist Dr. Drew Dossett to look at the herniated disk in his neck.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported that the surgery would remove the disk from the part of the nerve that is being pinched.

Fielder hasn't played for the Texas Rangers since receiving a nerve-root injection Saturday morning.
