MILWAUKEE -- The Milwaukee Brewers have signed pitchers Dana Eveland, Derrick Turnbow and infielder Prince Fielder to one-year contracts, it was announced today by Executive Vice President and General Manager Doug Melvin.

Eveland, 22, began the season with Double A Huntsville going 10-4 with a 2.81 ERA in 18 starts. He was selected to the Southern League All-Star game where he was the starting pitcher for the North team. Eveland made his Major League debut on July 16 vs. Washington and notched his first Major League win on July 26 vs. Arizona. Following the season, he was named the Brewers seventh-best prospect by Baseball America.

Turnbow, 28, equaled the Brewers single-season saves record with 39 (Dan Kolb, 39) and finished the season ranked fifth in the National League. For his efforts, he was named the Brewers Most Valuable Pitcher and Top Newcomer (tied with Carlos Lee) as selected by the Milwaukee Chapter of the BBWAA. Turnbow's 7-1 record set a personal career-high for wins and his 1.74 ERA was the second lowest among National League relievers. Turnbow finished second in the National League in Rolaids Relief Man Standings in 2005, just three points behind Washington's Chad Cordero.­

Fielder, 21, finished the season ranked as Milwaukee's top prospect and Best Power Prospect in the Pacific Coast League as selected by Baseball America. He began the season with Triple A Nashville and hit .291 with 28 home runs and 86 RBI in 103 games. Fielder made his Major League debut on June 13 at Tampa Bay and collected his first hit, a double, off Hideo Nomo on June 15 at Tampa Bay. With Milwaukee, he hit .288 in 29 games with a pair of pinch-hit home runs and 10 runs batted in.

With today's signings, the Brewers have reached agreement with 34 of the 40 players on the 40-Man roster.
