Nats May be the Favorites for Prince

by kelly on January 2, 2012

The Prince Fielder rumors slowed down significantly after the Winter Meetings, but now they appear to be heating up again, as the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinal’s Tom Haudricourt wrote in his blog this morning that the Nationals appear to be the favorites right now.

The Nationals do have an incumbent first baseman in Adam LaRoche, but he’s only signed for one more year and Prince would be a significant upgrade. GM Mike Rizzo has been mum on the subject, but Washington has shown MLB they’re going for it in 2012, as they’ve been in on many free agent targets and traded top prospects for lefty starter Gio Gonzalez.

The Mariners, Rangers, Cubs, and Orioles have also been linked to the slugger.

Spread the Rumor!
