Walter on Mueller
"Jake takes over for Nate Mondou at second base this year. Jake features a good approach at the plate and is a very steady defender. He'll spend time at the top of the order and at the bottom of the order, depending on the match-up and how the guys around him are swinging the bat. We're excited to see what he can do with 200+ at bats."
