Fielder avoids arbitration with 1-year deal

Prince Fielder and the Brewers have reportedly come to terms for his final season of arbitration eligibility. Fielder will make $15.5 million in 2011, setting a new mark for the highest paid Brewer in a single season (previous-- Zack Greinke, $13.5 million for 2011). At $15.5 million, Fielder surpasses the bar set by Mark Texeira in 2008 ($12.5 million, Braves) for the highest paid, arbitration-eligible position player.

The Brewers also reached a deal today with Manny Parra ($1.2 million), leaving only Rickie Weeks, Shaun Marcum, and Kameron Loe to reach terms with the Brewers for 2011.
