Good morning, everyone.

Sad news from late last night, as Chicago Cub Hall of Famer Ernie Banks passed away.  Banks was a great player who would have put up even better numbers had back issues not slowed him in his 30s.  He was also a great ambassador of the game, someone who everyone seemed to love.

Prince Fielder says he's 100% after the neck surgery that cost him most of the 2014 season.

Anthony Andro has a piece on Fielder and his comeback from his injury, with Fielder saying he can't exactly pinpoint when the problems starter.

Prince Fielder, last night, also introduced a new anti-bullying program.

T.R. Sullivan quotes Fielder as saying he's focusing right now on trying to be stay healthy.

Gerry Fraley has a column on Fielder's health, and the importance of Fielder being healthy in 2015.

Calvin Watkins writes that the Rangers need full, healthy seasons from Prince Fielder and Yu Darvish in 2015.

If you are going to FanFest today, you'll have the opportunity to get lots of autographs, including from Elvis Andrus, Pudge Rodriguez, and Adrian Beltre.

Sullivan's notes talk about Moreland avoiding arbitration, Gonzalez Germen being claimed by the Cubs on waivers, and minor leaguers getting invites to camp, including Joey Gallo, Chi Chi Gonzalez and Pat Cantwell.

The S-T's notes also hit on Moreland signing, NRIs, and the signing of Ross Ohlendorf to a minor league deal.
