Brewers To Listen On Fielder

According to George King and Bart Hubbuch of the New York Post, the Brewers have informed teams they'll listen to offers for first baseman Prince Fielder.  Fielder, 24, hit .276/.372/.507 in 694 plate appearances this year.  He's under team control for three more years; his salary will increase drastically as he goes through the arbitration process for the first time this offseason.

The article's authors do not see the Yankees as suitors for Fielder, due to his defense and the team's long-term desire to move Derek Jeter to first base after the 2010 season.  The Jeter logic seems a little shaky, since Fielder is only under team control through 2011.

I discussed six possible Fielder suitors earlier this month.  The question is, who's willing to give up good young pitching?
