Prince Fielder reported to camp early today and 20 pounds thinner. Typically, these types of stories are reserved for celebrities like Jessica Simpson. Fielder is a unique case where grown men are interested in his weight. He ballooned at least 20 lbs heavier last year at this time. So for him to take of 20 lbs, it should bring him to a similar size that crushed 50 homeruns two season ago.
This is great news and must have been the icing on the cake (no pun intended) for Melvin to sign him to a contract extension last month. Boras, Fielders' agent, told Melvin and the rest of the brass that a trimmed-down version of Prince would be reporting to camp.
