Mariners Interested In Prince Fielder

The Mariners are interested in Prince Fielder and will explore a potential deal with the slugging free agent first baseman. GM Jack Zduriencik, who drafted Fielder as the Brewers’ scouting director, told MLB.com’s Greg Johns that the Mariners may be able to afford a major expenditure such as the 27-year-old Scott Boras client.

"There's no question we could use a big bat in the middle of our lineup, but where is your limitation and threshold?,” Zduriencik asked. “We'll go down that road and experiment and see where it ends up, but until things get more definitive, we'll just have to wait and see."

Zduriencik cautioned that the Mariners will have to take the pace of the market into account, as well as Fielder’s asking price. Should the market for Fielder drag, it may become difficult for Seattle to allocate resources to other areas of need. The Nationals, Cubs and Brewers are also known to be interested in Fielder.
