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.

Dodgers' Max Muncy: Cranks fourth homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muncy went 1-for-4 with a solo home run during Friday's win over the Giants.

Muncy extended the Dodgers' lead with a solo homer against Jeff Samardzija to start off the fourth inning. Interestingly enough, three of his four team-leading long balls this season have come against the Giants. The 29-year-old entered Friday's game in a bit of a slump, going just 1-for-18 over the last five games. Overall, he's batting .182/.328/.436.

Dodgers' Max Muncy: Reaches base three times
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muncy went 0-for-2 with three walks in Tuesday's win over San Diego.

Muncy has fallen into a slump over his last four games, going 1-for-14 over that span. However, the 29-year-old has continued to demonstrate a good eye at the plate this season, leading Los Angeles -- and tying for seventh in the league -- with nine walks.

Dodgers' Max Muncy: Goes yard in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muncy went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, a walk and another run scored during Thursday's win in Arizona.

Muncy launched his third long ball of the season with a solo shot off reliever Alex Young in the sixth inning. He also singled and scored in the first, and walked in the fourth. The 29-year-old appears to be on his way to another successful season.

Dodgers' Max Muncy: Homers twice in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muncy went 3-for-4 with a pair of home runs, a double, a walk and three runs scored during Friday's win over the Giants.

Muncy got the scoring started with a solo home run off Tyler Anderson in the first inning, then added his second long ball of the night with another solo shot in the sixth. He also doubled and scored in the fourth and walked in the second. The two-homer night was Muncy's first since a June 27, 2019 contest at Colorado. The 29-year-old produced 35 homers for the Dodgers a season ago.

Dodgers' Max Muncy: Poised to hit leadoff
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Dave Roberts said Muncy -- who is batting first in Thursday's season opener against the Giants -- will hit leadoff for "the foreseeable future," Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

Roberts said the goal is to stagger the team's lineup, so the lefty-hitting Muncy will be followed by righty-swinging Mookie Betts. Muncy has occupied the leadoff spot just seven times in his career, going 5-for-17 (.294) with a home run and two RBI in those appearances.

Dodgers' Max Muncy: Resumes playing field
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muncy (finger) started at first base in Monday's exhibition game against Arizona and went 0-for-2 with a walk and a run scored.

Muncy missed some time in early July after being hit on the finger by a pitch, but he's now back to full activity and has played first base in the team's last two exhibition games. He's fully expected to be in the Dodgers' lineup on Opening Day.

Dodgers' Max Muncy: Starting in exhibition
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muncy (finger) is in the lineup for Sunday's exhibition game against the Diamondbacks.

Muncy was limited in intrasquad action over the past several days while dealing with a left finger bruise, but it appears as though he'll perform a full range of activities Sunday. Given his smooth progression in his recovery, Muncy will likely be ready to take the field for Opening Day on Thursday.

Dodgers' Max Muncy: Nearing full intrasquad action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muncy (finger) is expected to play the field in an intrasquad game Thursday or Friday, Alanna Rizzo of Spectrum SportsNet LA reports.

The 29-year-old had two at-bats during Tuesday's intrasquad action, but he was pulled for a pinch runner after reaching base both times and didn't play defense. Muncy progressed to fielding groundballs in the past couple days after previously dealing with discomfort while catching the ball. Manager Dave Roberts has continually said he expects Muncy to be at first base come Opening Day despite the finger issue, and his presence in intrasquad action this week would only reaffirm that optimism.

Dodgers' Max Muncy: Hitting in intrasquad games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muncy (finger) had two at-bats in Tuesday's intrasquad game, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.

The 29-year-old came off the bench and went 2-for-2 during the same inning, and he was replaced by a pinch runner after both hits. Muncy resumed swinging a bat Monday and apparently has no issues at the plate, but he's experiencing some discomfort while catching the ball and hasn't been taking groundballs. Manager Dave Roberts still expects Muncy to be at first base on Opening Day, per Alanna Rizzo of Spectrum SportsNet LA, but until he's clear of the discomfort while catching his status will remain somewhat up in the air.

Dodgers' Max Muncy: Resumes swinging bat
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muncy (finger) has been swinging a bat but has some discomfort while catching a ball, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

Muncy was hit in the hand with a ball nearly a week ago and has been held out of intrasquad games since. While the slugger doesn't feel his bruised left ring finger limits his offense, he has experienced tenderness when playing catch. Manager Dave Roberts reiterated Sunday that he expects Muncy to be ready for Opening Day.

Dodgers' Max Muncy: Confident for Opening Day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muncy (finger) is confident in his availability for Opening Day, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

Muncy is still feeling pain after suffering a bruised left ring finger during an intrasquad matchup Tuesday, but he expressed confidence Wednesday that he'll be ready for the start of the regular season. The 29-year-old still hasn't attempted gripping a bat, but he said that he'd likely be playing through the injury if the season had begun. However, he's electing to take his recovery slowly during camp as a precautionary measure. The Dodgers are scheduled to open the season July 23 against the Giants.

Dodgers' Max Muncy: Day-to-day with finger issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muncy is considered day-to-day after getting hit by a ball on his left ring finger, Eric Stephen of TrueBlueLA.com reports.

It doesn't sound as though Muncy is dealing with a serious issue such a fracture, so his readiness for Opening Day doesn't appear to be significantly threatened. Still, any lost preparation time given the brief period that players have to get in game shape certainly isn't a good thing, with the Dodgers set to open play against the Giants in just over two weeks on July 23.

Dodgers' Max Muncy: Staying fresh during hiatus
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muncy stated that he has been hitting in a cage "a couple times a week" but is "trying not to overdo it" in an interview with John Hartung of Spectrum SportsNet LA.

"Once things start up...it's going to be a lot of games in a short period of time," Muncy theorized in explaining his rationale for wanting to stay fresh during MLB's hiatus. The 29-year-old is slated to take on a near-everyday role as the Dodgers' starting first baseman in 2020, with occasional time at second base.

Dodgers' Max Muncy: Works on hitting offspeed pitches
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muncy spent time this offseason working on his approach to offspeed pitches, Cary Osborne of Dodger Insider reports.

Despite making his first All-Star team last season, Muncy struggled against offspeed offerings, batting a paltry .197 against such pitches, per Statcast. That was a significant dropoff in comparison to his 2018 campaign during which he batted .268 against offspeed pitches. As a result, Muncy consulted with Dodgers hitting coaches Brant Brown and Robert Van Scoyoc in the offseason, both of whom flew to Texas to work with the slugger. Muncy also spent time addressing his defensive mechanics -- in particular his footwork -- in an effort to shore up a second self-perceived area in need of improvement. The 29-year-old is expected to play primarily at first base in 2020, though he should also see some time at second base.

Dodgers' Max Muncy: Blasts two spring homers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muncy hit .200 (5-for-25) with a pair of home runs and two RBI before Cactus League play was suspended.

In addition to the long balls, Muncy walked six times this spring -- the second highest mark on the Dodgers -- and scored six runs. The base on balls total highlights an often-overlooked part of Muncy's skill set; the slugger walked 90 times last season, second on the squad and seventh in the National League. He's set to be the Dodgers' primary first baseman this season after playing second base in all or part of 70 games in 2019.

Dodgers' Max Muncy: Receives extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muncy and the Dodgers came to terms Thursday on a three-year, $24.5 million contract extension, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports. The contract includes a $13 million team option or a $1.5 million buyout for 2023.

Muncy didn't become a full-time regular at the MLB level until his age-27 season in 2018, so he was likely eager to accept a fairly modest extension rather than being subjected to the arbitration process for the next three years. The deal will also allow the Dodgers to potentially buy out his first year of free agency in 2023. Muncy, who has slugged 35 home runs in back-to-back years while showing the ability to play three infield spots, is expected to see most of his action at first base in 2020.

Dodgers' Max Muncy: Goes yard in Game 5 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muncy went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run Wednesday in a 7-3 extra-inning loss to the Nationals in Game 5 of the National League Division Series.

Muncy got the Dodgers off to a fast start with his two-run blast in the first inning off Washington starter Stephen Strasburg. It was Muncy's third homer of the series, but the L.A. offense dried up the rest of the night outside of an Enrique Hernandez solo homer in the second inning. The 29-year-old Muncy is coming off consecutive 35-homer seasons and slashed .251/.374/.515 in 2019.

Dodgers' Max Muncy: Belts 35th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muncy went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in Saturday's win over the Giants.

Muncy launched a 429-foot shot to right field in the sixth inning to plate the final run in the 2-0 victory. The 29-year-old has followed last season's breakout performance with another strong campaign in 2019, tying last year's mark with 35 homers while slashing .252/.370/.518 and placing second on the squad in RBI (98), runs (99) and walks (86).
