Watch Now:

Muncy is about 85 percent recovered from his elbow injury and manager Dave Roberts believes he should be ready for Opening Day in some capacity, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.

Muncy missed last year's postseason with a torn UCL and a dislocation of his left elbow. He said himself in early March that he expected to be ready for Opening Day, but players have a tendency to be optimistic regarding their own availability, so it's encouraging to hear a similar story from his manager. The introduction of the universal designated hitter could also boost Muncy's early-season value, as he should be able to remain in the lineup regularly even if he's not yet ready for an everyday role in the field.
