Fielder Sitting with the Flu

Prince Fielder was scratched Monday with flu-like symptoms. Casey McGehee will slide from third base to first and Mat Gamel will take over at the hot corner for Monday night’s game against the Astros. Fielder, batting .273 with 30 home runs this year, had played in 327 consecutive games for the Brewers. He should be fine with a day or two of rest. (RotoWorld)

Fielder Notches 30th Homer

Prince Fielder smacked a three-run homer and also walked twice as the Brewers beat the Phillies 6-2 on Sunday. The homer was Fielder’s 30th of the season, marking the fourth straight campaign that he’s reached the 30-homer plateau. However, with just 73 RBI on the season and no DL-stint to speak of, Fielder is disappointing those that expected anywhere near the 141 RBI he totaled in 2009. (RotoWorld)

Fielder Trade Talks to Ramp Up in Offseason

According to Jayson Stark of ESPN.com, clubs that have spoken with the Brewers expect them to ramp up their efforts to trade Prince Fielder this winter. That may be the case, but it’s hard to imagine the type of return they’ll get for what will essentially be a one-year rental. An executive of one of the clubs told Stark that “they definitely would have [moved him] if they got the right package” during the trade deadline, however they were “shocked” that there wasn’t more interest. If the Brewers ultimately trade Fielder, their fans might be disappointed at the return. (RotoWorld)

Fielder Homers Twice Against Pirates

Prince Fielder homered twice Saturday in the Brewers’ defeat of the Pirates. The big man finished 3-for-6 with three RBI, helping Milwaukee to an extra-innings victory. Fielder’s had better seasons, of course, but a line with a .902 OPS, 26 homers and 68 RBI is nothing to scoff at. (RotoWorld)

Fielder Tops Astros with Walk-off . . .Single

Prince Fielder beat the Astros Friday night with a walkoff two-run single. Fielder finished the night with two hits and three RBI as he appears to be mounting a late-season push with nine RBI in his last four games. He’s way past due to go on a run-producing tear. (RotoWorld)

Fielder Turning Up the Heat in August

Prince Fielder went 2-for-4 with an RBI against the Cubs to Tuesday. He already has eight hits in three August games. Fielder hasn’t been the easiest star to own in fantasy leagues this season, but he won’t have to deal with trade rumors for the rest of the season and very well could have a big hot streak in him. He’s now hitting .270/.402/.499 with 52 RBI. (RotoWorld)

Fielder Notches First Five-Hit Game of Career

Prince Fielder notched the first five-hit game of his career, including a three-run double, a season-high five RBI and two runs scored in an 18-1 win over the Cubs on Monday night. Fielder has been pretty frustrating to own in fantasy leagues this season. In fact, entering Monday’s action, Fielder had went nine straight game without driving in a run. The Brewers were already winning 11-0 by the time Fielder chipped in. He stroked an RBI single in the seventh — the 500th RBI of his career, by the way — a three-run double in the eighth and another RBI single in the ninth. It was quite a night for the big man, but with 51 RBI through 101 games this season, he is currently on pace to drive in less runs than his rookie season in 2006 (81). Let’s hope he has a good run in him yet. (RotoWorld)

Brewers Won’t Trade Fielder or Hart at Deadline

Barring a last-minute development, the Brewers will not be trading Price Fielder or Corey Hart, according to FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal. This confirms what ESPN’s Keith Law reported Thursday. Law said that Milwaukee isn’t dealing their two hitters because they feel they’re still in contention. More likely, though, is that they feel they might be able to get a better deal over the winter or next season. (RotoWorld)

Rangers Trying to Acquire Fielder at Deadline

Jeff Passan hears from a source that the Rangers are not confident about picking up Prince Fielder in a trade. Passan’s source says that the asking price is too rich and the Rangers don’t want to “bankrupt their system.” To say nothing of the fact that the Rangers themselves are financially bankrupt, this makes sense. They get enough offense around the rest of the infield and outfield that they can probably pass on acquiring a top-shelf first baseman. According to Jon Heyman of SI.com, the Rangers have joined the Angels and White Sox among teams who have shown interest in Prince Fielder. For a bankrupt franchise, we find this possibility very hard to believe. Remember that Fielder is owed nearly $4 million in arbitration for the rest of this season, so it would take a boatload of prospects in order to get the Brewers to cover that amount. (RotoWorld)

Fielder Ejected in 8th Inning Against Reds

Prince Fielder was ejected from Wednesday’s game after striking out to end the eighth inning. The Reds were up 10-2 at the time, so Fielder’s presence in the ninth wasn’t likely to make a big difference. He was 0-for-3 with a walk in the contest. (RotoWorld)
