It appears the Toronto Blue Jays are still in the running for free agent slugger Prince Fielder.
According CBSCleveland.com, Fielder has shortened his list of possible destinations down to three teams that includes the Blue Jays, the Texas Rangers and the Milwaukee Brewers. And the report indicates the Jays are the favourites right now.
The Blue Jays would like to add Fielder to complement AL home run king Jose Bautista on offence as well as solidify first base defensively.
The Rangers could be that one bat away from a Word Series title after coming so close last season but they are also trying to re-sign starting pitcher C.J. Wilson.
And the Brewers seem to be losing ground amid reports general manager Doug Melvin has not offered increased their offer to Fielder or even talked to his agent, Scott Boras since the general manager/ownership meetings in mid-November.
Baseball's winter meetings begin in Dallas on Monday and Fielder is sure to be a topic of conversation among the various general managers.
