Prince Fielder is guaranteed $18 million in his new deal.
Al Tielemans/SI

The Brewers, who made a great move by locking up star first baseman Prince Fielder for two years and thus avoiding any potential arbitration disagreements, will pay Fielder $6.5 million in 2009, $10.5 million in '10, a $1 million signing bonus and $500,000 in incentives.

The deal guarantees Fielder $18 million, but it could be worth $18.5 million. Fielder can earn an extra $250,000 each season if he reaches 500 plate appearances, a number well within reach assuming he stays healthy.

The deal is expected to be announced today.
