Ken Davidoff of Newsday reports that Prince Fielder wants to play for the Cubs, but they “appear committed to a full rebuild for 2012.”
Fielder is intrigued by the possibility of playing in Chicago, Davidoff says, because “they’re a reasonable distance from his Florida home and he has outstanding numbers at Wrigley Field.” It doesn’t appear that he’ll land there, though, as the Cubs appear committed to rebuilding the farm system rather than spending on free agents. Davidoff also lists the Nationals and Blue Jays as potential landing spots for Prince but notes that the Nats “are a little gun-shy” after the Jayson Werth deal and the Jays are unwilling to go beyond five years for the first baseman.
