RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Bill Mueller.

2006

The switch-hitting Mueller signed a two-year contract with Los Angeles and will become the Dodgers starting third baseman. Mueller's 2003 season stands out amid a career that's been fairly average offensively -- maybe even less so given that third base is traditionally a power position. Mueller was able to put up higher-than-normal numbers because he hit in the middle of Boston's powerful lineup. Moving to L.A., Mueller will not get as many RBI opportunities but should continue to hit for a decent average and on-base percentage.

2005

Mueller underwent arthroscopic knee surgery during 2004 and experienced a dropoff in production. Part of the dropoff is due to the knee, and part was due to a natural regression from his heady 2003 season when Mueller led the league in batting. He doesn't have the power production one would expect from a corner infielder, but in some fantasy leagues could qualify as a second baseman (14 starts) where he has more value.

2004

Mueller posted stellar numbers in 2003 but will be hard-pressed to repeat given his overall career averages. He qualifies at third and second, but don't come to expect last season's output.

2003

Mueller was traded from the Cubs to the Giants in an unusual post-September 1 deal (which meant he couldn't play in the postseason), then filed for free agency. Mueller turns 32 in the spring and hit only .262-7-38 in 111 games last year, so even if he plays everyday, it'd be tough to rationalize drafting Mueller before more than half of the third basemen in your league are gone.
