Los Angeles Dodgers infielder Max Muncy (ankle) will return to the lineup on Thursday. Muncy has been dealing with an ankle injury since the weekend, but played on Tuesday and sat on Wednesday for some extra rest. Muncy has been in a bit of a slump with just seven hits over his last 37 at-bats, but he is having a good season with a .266 batting average to go along with 13 home runs and 31 RBI. Muncy will bat second versus Mitch Keller and managers should feel confident inserting him back in their lineup.
Los Angeles Dodgers infielder Max Muncy (ankle) will return to the lineup on Tuesday to face the Pittsburgh Pirates. Muncy has been sidelined since exiting Friday's game early with an ankle injury. The infielder had a scorching hot May and he is hitting an impressive .264 with 13 home runs, 30 RBI and a .949 OPS. Muncy will play first base and bat second versus JT Brubaker this evening. Muncy should be started in all formats.
Los Angeles Dodgers second baseman Max Muncy X-ray came out negative on Saturday. The X-ray was on Muncy's right ankle. As of right now, Muncey will be day-to-day and will be available in pinch-hit situations if needed, according to Dodgers manager Dave Roberts. Muncy has produced a .265 batting average, added 13 home runs and 30 RBI before getting hurt. Fantasy gamers should not worry, as the versatile infielder should be back in the Dodgers lineup soon.
The shortened 2020 season was not kind to Muncy. He had by far his worst season as a Dodger with a .192/.331/.389 slash line. In the broadest terms of OPS+, he went from 61 percent and 33 percent better than average in 2018 and 2019 respectively to three percent worse than average in '20. The best thing that came from his season was the fact that he held onto position eligibility for all of 1B, 2B, and 3B. '20 was probably the basement of Muncy's performance though. His walk rate remained elite, in the 93rd percentile. His 15.9% chase rate was the lowest of his career. He also had higher solid contact and barrel percentages than the previous season. Much can be attributed to an 80 point drop in BABIP from '19 to '20. Expect a bounce-back in batting average to the .250 area, as well as 50+ extra-base hits. He lines up to see a career-high in at-bats considering the departures of Los Angeles' depth. With that beautiful 2B-eligibility intact, Muncy looks like a great value at his ADP of around 100 overall.
