Muncy will sit Saturday against the Phillies, J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News reports. Muncy's bat has yet to wake up this season, as he's hit just .147/.341/.295 with three homers through his first 30 games, though his 27:26 BB:K indicates he's still seeing the ball quite well. He'll get a rest Saturday, with Hanser Alberto starting at second and Justin Turner at third.
Muncy is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Pirates, David Vassegh of AM 570 LA Sports reports. Hanser Alberto will enter the starting nine at third base in place of Muncy, who takes a seat after he was included in the lineup in each of the past five games. Through the first five games of May, Muncy is reaching base at a .400 clip, but it's largely been driven by walks (six) rather than hits (two).
Muncy went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run and an additional run scored in Wednesday's 9-1 victory against San Francisco. Muncy led off the seventh inning with a single and was eventually brought home on a Gavin Lux hit, and he went deep in the following frame for the final run of the contest. The slugger entered the contest having gone hitless over his previous four games, and this was his first multi-hit effort since April 22. Muncy is still hitting a paltry .151/.319/.315 on the season, so fantasy managers who roster him will hope this performance can get him going.
Muncy is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Tigers, J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News reports. Muncy has a .586 OPS for the season and is in a 2-for-24 slump over the past seven games, and he'll head to the bench Sunday for the first time in 2022. Justin Turner will serve as the designated hitter while Hanser Alberto starts at the hot corner.
Muncy went 2-for-3 with a solo home run, two additional RBI and two walks in Friday's 6-1 win against the Padres. Muncy walked in the first and third innings, homered in the fifth to give Los Angeles the lead and singled home two more runs in the seventh to provide valuable insurance. The base knocks snapped a three-game hitless stretch for the infielder, who has been drawing walks but hasn't had much luck when putting the ball in play to the tune of a .167/.352/.357 slash line.
