Walter on Pryor
"JP is a three-year starter who hit leadoff most of last season. This year we will hit him second to set the table for Fairchild and Sheets. Jonathan hits the ball to all fields, has good power and good speed. He also has a good feel for the short game and can steal a base when we need him to. He is one of the guys who makes this offense go."
