Nude Fielder lands magazine cover spot

Prince Fielder is on the cover of one of the regional editions for ESPN The Magazine's annual Body issue

ARLINGTON, Texas - Prince Fielder isn't with the Texas Rangers right now but he's a popular subject in the clubhouse.

That's because Fielder is on the cover of one of the regional editions for ESPN The Magazine's annual Body issue. He posed nude for the cover in April and the cover photo has created plenty of buzz.

Teammate Elvis Andrus didn't think he could do what Fielder did.

"I don't think I could do that," Andrus said. "That's way out of my game. I'll leave it to him. I think (Alex) Rios would look good in that magazine too. I don't think I could."

There were 22 athletes who posed nude for the magazine.

Fielder hasn't played in a game since May 16 and underwent surgery to repair a herniated disc in his neck.
