The potential suitors for Prince Fielder has been dwindling this offseason, and another one may have just been lost. The Rangers signed Yu Darvish for a 6 year deal around $60 million which most likely takes them out of the Prince Fielder market. Now they could possibly still somehow sign him but I highly doubt it. So who is left to sign the power hitting first baseman?
Well Scott Boras has made it clear that Fielder wants a huge, long term deal but I am not so sure there are many teams that cane make that happen. The likely contract looks to be around 6 years for $22MM-$24MM which is a big time commitment for the young first baseman. The Cardinals could use a first baseman but they have made it pretty clear that they are not interested in Fielder. Will someone be willing to give Fielder that kind of deal or will Boras have to settle for a shorter deal, but with possibly more money?
