Brewers Discussed Fielder Extension With Boras

Prince Fielder told Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that the Brewers met with agent Scott Boras yesterday to discuss an extension for the first baseman. The details aren't clear, but Fielder knows the Brewers haven't made an offer. 

"All I know is that Scott said they talked and everything was positive," Fielder said. "I heard the talks were good. Now, they do whatever."

Brewers GM Doug Melvin and assistant GM Gord Ash went for "a little trip" Wednesday, but didn't tell's Adam McCalvy where they went. Melvin told Haudricourt that negotiations have not begun.

Fielder is under contract for this year at $10.5MM. He's under team control as an arbitration-eligible player for 2011, when he could expect a substantial raise through the arbitration process.
