Rangers slugger Prince Fielder is out for the remainder of the season following neck surgery, which leaves him plenty of time to pursue other interests. Among those interests: posing nude for magazines. Tastefully, of course.

According to Associated Press, Fielder will be one of 22 athletes to pose in an upcoming issue of ESPN The Magazine's Body Issue, their equivalent of the Swimsuit Issue. Fielder will be included in a feature called "Bodies We Want."

Fielder, who is listed at 5-foot-11 and 275 lbs. on the team's official site, won't be the first Rangers player to appear in the Body Issue. Outfielder Nelson Cruz posed nude in the 2009 edition. Matt Harvey's photos (NSFW-ish) created quite the stir last year, as you may remember.

The Body Issue is scheduled to hit newsstands on July 11.
