The Milwaukee Brewers have been dreading the day they would have to part with All-Star first baseman Prince Fielder. That day may be rapidly approaching now that the Brewers are officially listening to offers for their franchise player.
Fielder, a two-time All-Star who is hitting .265 with 20 home runs and 39 RBI, will be one of the most sought after players on the free agent market when his contract expires in 2011. It appears, however, the Brewers are going at least try to head that off at the pass and deal Fielder before the end of the month.
Right now, there aren't many suitors but enough to at least keep the competition hot and the talk increasing as we approach the July 31st trading deadline.
