Career Home Runs: 269
In seven complete seasons (excluding his 39 games played in 2005 and this season), Detroit Tigers first base slugger Prince Fielder has averaged 36.8 home runs per season, and he hasn't even celebrated his 30th birthday yet.
That's not to say that it will be easy for Fielder to reach the 500-home run plateau. He needs to continue hitting home runs at his current pace for the next six seasons to reach the milestone, which isn't a given.
Fielder could take some pressure off of himself by putting up another season of 50 long balls like he did back in 2007, but that may be asking too much of the slugger as he begins to age into his 30s.
Regardless, because Fielder has remained healthy for his entire career and doesn't seem to be having a power outage this season—he already his nine jacks on the season—Fielder will reach the 500-home run milestone.
