Prince Fielder Rumors: Scott Boras Declins Comment On Reported Meeting With Nationals

Agent Scott Boras declined comment on a reported meeting with Nationals ownership about free agent first baseman Prince Fielder, according to a tweet from ESPN's Jerry Crasnick on Tuesday.

Bill Ladson of MLB.com reported earlier in the day that Boras was in Washington for the meeting as the Nationals are believed to be in competition with the Cubs and Mariners for Fielder's powerful services. Fielder will be entering just his eighth season in the spring and has already smacked 230 home runs and racked up a .282 lifetime batting average to go with a .930 lifetime OPS.

In 13 at bats at Nationals Park, Fielder has a .154 average with just one extra base hit, a double. Of course, that's a very small sample size, but those are his career numbers at his prospective new home ballpark nonetheless.
