Max Muncy News
The Los Angeles Dodgers activated infielder Max Muncy (elbow) from the injured list on Thursday and optioned infielder/outfielder Zach McKinstry to Triple-A Oklahoma City in a corresponding move. Muncy was out for two weeks with left elbow inflammation. It's the same elbow he injured on the final game of the regular season last year that caused him to miss the postseason. The 31-year-old went 2-for-14 with a home run and two RBI on a four-game rehab assignment with Oklahoma City, and he was hitting just .150/.327/.263 with three long balls and 14 RBI in 133 at-bats before he aggravated his elbow. He's starting at second base and is batting cleanup on Thursday against Chicago White Sox right-hander Dylan Cease. Fantasy managers are hoping he can return to his pre-injury form from last year.
Los Angeles Dodgers infielder Max Muncy (elbow) is scheduled to start a minor league rehab assignment with Triple-A Oklahoma City in the next couple of days. Skipper Dave Roberts said Muncy's elbow continues to get stronger. Muncy was able to take batting practice on Wednesday and could rejoin the Dodgers lineup next week, barring any setbacks on his rehab assignment. The 31-year-old slugger has been bothered by an elbow injury that he sustained late last season, and it has affected his numbers at the plate through 41 games. Muncy is slashing an un-Muncy like .150/.327/.263 with three homers and 14 RBI in 41 games. Hopefully he can rekindle some of his offensive firepower when he returns.
Los Angeles Dodgers infielder Max Muncy (elbow) was at Dodger Stadium ahead of his team's Monday night game swinging a bat, according to reports. Muncy was placed on the injured list on May 28 after experiencing inflammation in his left elbow. Apparently, the team feels good enough about his elbow that they are planning on sending him to Camelback Ranch in a few days where he will begin to ramp up his activity. Muncy is hitting .150 with three homers, 21 runs, and 14 RBI over 133 at-bats in 2022.
Few hitters were tougher for pitchers to deal with in 2021 than Muncy, who hit 36 homers and drove in 94 runs in 592 plate appearances for the Dodgers. He was arguably the best hitter in the league in terms of the power and contact combination with his elite 16.1% Brl% and 78% contact rate. It is pretty rare to find a guy striking out so rarely (20.4%) while still hitting homers at an elite rate (16.3 PA/HR). He also posted another high walk rate (14%), which he used to post yet another elite OBP of .368. There are very few holes to poke in Muncy's game at the plate. The problem is the health concerns. He was injured in a collision at first base on the regular season's final day, and missed all of the playoffs. That later was revealed to be a torn UCL, which is threatening to cause him to miss the beginning of the 2022 season. Any positive news about the elbow should (and will) push his ADP up substantially, which could make him a massive steal in early drafts. No matter where you get Muncy, the only way you will be disappointed is if the health does not return, and that is a gamble you should be willing to take.
