Top Max Muncy News

  • Dodgers' Max Muncy: Not starting Saturday

    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.

  • Dodgers' Max Muncy: Resting Monday

    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).

  • Dodgers' Max Muncy: Belts homer in multi-hit effort

    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.

  • Dodgers' Max Muncy: First day off

    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.

  • Dodgers' Max Muncy: Goes deep, on base four times

    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.

  • Dodgers' Max Muncy: Draws three walks

    Muncy went 0-for-2 with three walks and a run scored in Tuesday's 7-2 win over the Twins.

    Muncy has recorded only one hit in the Dodgers' first four games, but at least in Tuesday's game, he displayed the sort of plate discipline that aided him to a .368 on-base average in 2021. The 31-year-old should continue to see more plate appearances with runners on base with the likes of Mookie Betts, Freddie Freeman and Trea Turner batting ahead of him, though it's fair to wonder if Muncy will be able to replicate last season's power production after suffering a UCL tear in his left elbow last fall. Muncy returned to action early in spring training, but he went 5-for-27 in Cactus League play and produced only two extra-base hits (both doubles).

  • Dodgers' Max Muncy: Launches first homer

    Muncy went 1-for-2 with a solo home run and two walks Wednesday against the Twins.

    Muncy capped off a strong offensive day for the Dodgers by taking Griffin Jax yard in the ninth inning. It was only his second hit of the campaign -- and his first home run -- though he has also walked five times in only five games. Muncy has occupied the cleanup role in four of his five starts, so he should provide plentiful counting stats once his bat heats up.

  • Dodgers' Max Muncy: Making spring debut

    Muncy (elbow) will start at third base and bat second in Monday's spring training matchup with the White Sox, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.

    Muncy was forced to miss last year's postseason after injuring his elbow in the regular season finale, but he seems to be on track to be ready for Opening Day. With the addition of Freddie Freeman this offseason, Muncy will likely be the Dodgers primary designated-hitter this season but he may be asked to play both second base and third base in addition to getting the occasional start at first when Freeman is not in the lineup. The 31-year-old will look to pick up where he left off in 2021 where he hit 36 homers and drove in 94 runs with a slash of .249/.368/.895.

  • Dodgers' Max Muncy: Making spring debut Monday

    Muncy (elbow) is slated to make his spring debut Monday, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.

    Muncy hurt his elbow in last year's regular-season finale but has participated in baseball activities early in spring training. He played first base in a simulated game last week, and he'll make his Cactus League debut against the White Sox on Monday. It's not yet clear whether he'll face any limitations for Opening Day, but his progression early this spring has been encouraging.

  • Dodgers' Max Muncy: Playing first base in sim game

    Muncy (elbow) played first base in the Dodgers' simulated game Tuesday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

    Muncy's health has been a major question mark since he injured his left elbow in last year's regular-season finale, but the recent news on that front has been encouraging. He's apparently 85 percent recovered from the injury and has been participating in workouts with the intention of being ready for Opening Day. While the introduction of the universal designated hitter should make it easier to keep him in the lineup early in the year if he's not yet at 100 percent, it looks as though he may not find himself limited to that role.

  • Dodgers' Max Muncy: Participates in baseball activities

    Muncy (elbow) took batting practice and fielded grounders Saturday, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.

    Manager Dave Roberts said Friday that he expects Muncy to be ready for Opening Day in some capacity, and the 31-year-old is approximately 85 percent recovered from his elbow injury that he sustained during the final game of the regular season in 2021. It was encouraging to see him participate in baseball activities now that spring training is underway, and it's possible that he'll serve as the team's designated hitter to begin the year if he isn't cleared to play in the field by Opening Day.

  • Dodgers' Max Muncy: Nearing full health

    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.
