Dodgers' Max Muncy: Hits third postseason homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muncy went 2-for-3 with a walk and a solo homer in Sunday's World Series Game 5 win over the Rays.

Muncy's fifth-inning solo shot off Tyler Glasnow provided an insurance run that ultimately proved unnecessary, as no more runs would be scored the rest of the way. He's now homered three times in the postseason to go along with a .268/.461/.500 slash line, a huge step up from his .192/.331/.389 line during the regular season. A jump in BABIP from .203 in the regular season to .364 in the playoffs accounts for much of that difference.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muncy went 2-for-4 with two walks, two runs scored and a grand slam in Wednesday's NLCS Game 3 win over the Braves.

Muncy's grand slam off lefty Grant Dayton capped off the Dodgers' 11-run first inning. He later doubled and came around to score the team's 15th run just two innings later. It was a very encouraging performance for the slugger, who slumped to a .192/.331/.389 line during the regular season.

Dodgers' Max Muncy: Returns to lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muncy (wrist) is starting Saturday against the Angels.

Muncy left Friday's game two innings after tweaking his wrist on a checked swing, but he'll return to the lineup just one day later. Given his quick return, he shouldn't face any limitations heading into the postseason.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muncy left Friday's game against the Angels with an apparent wrist injury, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

Muncy appeared to tweak his right wrist on a check swing in the fifth inning Friday, and he was replaced defensively to begin the seventh inning. It's unclear how Muncy's availability will be impacted as a result of the injury.

Dodgers' Max Muncy: Cranks 10th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muncy went 1-for-5 with a solo home run during Friday's loss over the Rockies.

Muncy wasted no time evening the score at 1-1 with a solo homer against Antonio Senzatela in the first inning. The long ball marked the 10th of the season for the 30-year-old, who is hitting .209/.337/.446 with 24 runs scored and 21 RBI.

Dodgers' Max Muncy: Takes reps at third base
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muncy fielded ground balls at third base during pregame infield practice Tuesday, David Vassegh of AM 570 LA Sports reports.

While Justin Turner remains on the injured list, the Dodgers will likely mix and match starters at the hot corner. Edwin Rios got the start there Tuesday -- Muncy was in the lineup at first base, as usual -- but it wouldn't be a surprise to see Muncy make a start or two at third in Turner's absence. He started 26 games at the hot corner last season and has logged six starts there so far in 2020.

Dodgers' Max Muncy: Drives in four
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muncy went 2-for-4 with a double, a home run, four RBI and two runs scored Saturday against the Rangers.

Muncy was a big part of the Dodgers' offensive effort, first driving in Austin Barnes on a sacrifice fly in the fifth inning. He followed that up with a three-run homer in the seventh frame, his ninth of the campaign. Muncy was hitless in his past two games, but he now has three home runs in his past six contests. Overall, he's hitting .198/.322/.446 with 19 runs scored and 20 RBI across 146 plate appearances.

Dodgers' Max Muncy: Hyperextends elbow
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muncy hyperextended elbow on a play at first base during Tuesday's loss to the Giants, but he was able to stay in the game, Michael J. Duarte of NBC LA reports.

The play occurred in the sixth inning when Muncy reached for a throw. The 30-year-old insisted that he was fine, however, and played out the remainder of the 11-inning contest. Muncy was included in Wednesday's lineup before the game was postponed, so the issue does not appear to be of concern.

Dodgers' Max Muncy: Launches another homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muncy went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run and two walks in an extra-innings loss to the Giants on Tuesday.

Muncy kicked off the scoring in the contest with a 423-foot shot to right field to plate three runs in the first inning. The long ball was the second in as many games for Muncy, who appears to be working his way out of an extended slump. After hitting .129 (8-for-62) over the first 20 days of August, Muncy has gone 5-for-13 with a pair of homers, four walks and four RBI in his last four games.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dodgers' Max Muncy: Takes extra swings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muncy took extra batting practice Saturday, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

Muncy has been mired in a season-long slump and is hitting only .178 after a 1-for-2 performance Saturday. He fractured a finger in summer camp, which could be partly responsible for his slow start to the campaign. Of Muncy's 18 hits this season, six have left the park.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muncy got the Dodgers on the board by swatting his sixth home run of the season, this time against Taijuan Walker leading off the second inning. The 29-year-old has been struggling this year, hitting just .176/.303/.396 with 12 RBI and 13 runs scored.

Dodgers' Max Muncy: Drives in three
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muncy went 1-for-3 with three RBI and a walk in Saturday's win over the Angels.

Muncy returned to the lineup after a planned rest day and delivered for the Dodgers, plating two runs with a single in the third inning and driving home the eventual winning run with the first leadoff sacrifice fly in MLB history in the 10th. The performance snapped a six-game skid without a run batted in for Muncy and served as his first multiple-RBI game since July 24.

Dodgers' Max Muncy: Sitting Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muncy will be on the bench Friday against the Angels.

Muncy had started each of the Dodgers' first 20 games but hadn't had much success at the plate, hitting .169/.289/.351. Edwin Rios will be the first baseman Friday, with Enrique Hernandez starting at second.

Dodgers' Max Muncy: Reveals fractured finger
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muncy explained Saturday that the finger injury he suffered during summer camp was a fracture, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

Earlier reports suggested that Muncy's injury was a bruise, but the slugger indicated that he was actually dealing with a left finger fracture. The injury has not kept the slugger out of the lineup, as he has started every regular season game for the Dodgers thus far. However, Muncy has gotten off to a slow start at the plate -- despite belting four home runs, he is hitting only .169.

Dodgers' Max Muncy: Batting fifth Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muncy is starting at first base and batting fifth against San Francisco on Saturday.

Muncy hit first or second in the order in each of his first 13 starts to begin the season, but he was moved down to the sixth spot Friday after collecting only one hit over his previous five contests. The 29-year-old responded with a solo home run, and manager Dave Roberts will have him bat fifth for the team Saturday. On the season, Muncy is slashing .182/.328/.436 with four home runs over 67 plate appearances.
