The Prince Fielder contract talks will include the highest level of Brewers management. Owner Mark Attanasio tells the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel that he will be involved in trying to sign the slugging first baseman to a long-term contract.
Attanasio adds that there will be no deadlines to get a Fielder deal done. "We have to take it one step at a time," he tells the Journal-Sentinel.
The Journal-Sentinel also reports Attanasio met with Brewers general manager Doug Melvin on Saturday to discuss the "process" of talks.
Fielder, 25, can become a free agent after the 2011 season. He will make $11 million this season.
