Prince Fielder signed a one year, $15.5 million contract this offseason to set himself up for 2012 free agency.

The Milwaukee Brewers and Prince Fielder have had a good run. Fielder has occupied the Brewers’ first base position for the past five-full seasons, and part of a sixth.

Over that stretch the 27-year-old has hit 224 home runs, 645 RBI, posted a .282 batting average, .388 on base percentage and .536 slugging percentage.

He’s jumped around statistically, but he’s basically been good for a .275 batting average, 30 home runs and 100 RBI the past five seasons.
