The Brewers also renewed right fielder Corey Hart's contract and agreed to one-year deals with second baseman Rickie Weeks and outfielder Gabe Gross.
Fielder had a breakout season last year when he hit an NL-leading 50 home runs to go with 119 RBIs and a .288 average.
Braun won last year's NL Rookie of the Year award despite making just 112 starts at third base beginning May 25. He hit .324 with 34 homers and 97 RBIs, breaking the franchise's rookie home run and RBI records set by Fielder in 2006.
