Andres Munoz Undergoes Tommy John Surgery

San Diego Padres reliever Andres Munoz (elbow) underwent Tommy John surgery on Friday. Without daily news flow, this development comes as a surprise, but Munoz had encountered discomfort earlier in spring training. The 21-year-old debuted last season to a 3.91 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 31 percent strikeout rate in 23 frames while averaging a whopping 100.2 MPH on his heater. He was expected to be a key setup man in 2020 prior to the surgery. With the season start date in doubt, it makes sense for Munoz to get a head start on his recovery. Fantasy drafters counting on him for strikeouts will need to wait until the middle of next year. Munozs absence gives a bump to fellow reliever Emilio Pagan, whos now the primary handcuff to closer Kirby Yates.

Andres Munoz Throws Simulated Game

San Diego Padres reliever Andres Munoz threw his first simulated game of the spring on Saturday. After fatigue derailed the end of a fantastic rookie season, Munoz is expected to throw another bullpen session on Tuesday with the hope of appearing in his first Spring Training game on Thursday. Munoz posted a 1.69 ERA through 20 MLB appearances in 2019 before allowing six runs over his final 1.2 innings to tarnish to final numbers in his rookie year. Munoz is expected to be a key part of the setup crew behind Kirby Yates and could be an excellent source of holds this season.

Andres Munoz Emerges As Fantasy Relief Option

Making his major league debut over the weekend, San Diego Padres reliever Andres Munoz recorded three strikeouts across 1 1/3 innings over two scoreless appearances. Signed out of Mexico in 2015, the 20-year-old Munoz has zipped through the minors, posting an absurd 14.6 K/9 across Double-A and Triple-A this season before the call-up. Munoz is a raw talent with a two-pitch repertoire but consistently breaches 100 MPH on his fastball. With the Padres bullpen in tatters, the Friars No. 18 prospect has a legitimate shot to establish himself in high-leverage situations. For fantasy managers looking for strikeout upside in deeper leagues or a future closer stash in dynasty leagues, Munoz could be the guy.
