Red Sox's Yairo Munoz: Invited to player pool
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Munoz was added to the Red Sox's 60-man player pool.

Munoz, who is not on the 40-man roster, hooked up with the Red Sox after the season was paused in March. The 25-year-old infielder batted .267/.298/.355 over 88 games for St. Louis in 2019 but is well down the depth chart as Boston prepares for its summer camp.

Red Sox's Yairo Munoz: Inks minors deal with Boston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Munoz (hamstring) signed a minor-league contract with the Red Sox on Wednesday.

The 25-year-old was released by the Cardinals in early March after abruptly leaving camp and returning to the Dominican Republic without informing the club, but he was able to latch on with a new team. Munoz had been dealing with a hamstring injury, and it's unclear when's he's expected to be fully healthy. He figures to provides organizational infield depth once activities resume.

Yairo Munoz: Released by Cardinals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Munoz (hamstring) was released by the Cardinals on Saturday.

He recently felt a pop in his hamstring and won't be ready for Opening Day. Munoz has apparently been unhappy with his role and simply flew home to the Dominican Republic without telling the team, so they cut him loose. Once healthy, he could draw interest from other clubs if he still has interest in playing professional baseball.

Cardinals' Yairo Munoz: MRI on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Munoz (hamstring) is slated for an MRI on Wednesday, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.

Munoz's strong spring came to an abrupt halt when he suffered his hamstring strain Saturday against the Nationals. Rogers reports Munoz is increasingly likely to start the season on the injured list, which could well up the chances of Edmundo Sosa making the Opening Day roster as a utility option.

Cardinals' Yairo Munoz: Opening Day status in doubt
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Munoz (hamstring) seems unlikely to be healthy for Opening Day, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Munoz suffered a left hamstring strain during Saturday's Grapefruit League game against the Nationals, and it appears it will delay his start to the regular season. The severity of the injury remains unclear, but manager Mike Shildt indicated the recovery could "take awhile." The 25-year-old was competing for an infield utility spot in spring training.

Cardinals' Yairo Munoz: Suffers hamstring strain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Munoz strained his left hamstring Saturday against the Nationals, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.

Munoz suffered the injury while beating out an infield single. The severity of the strain and Munoz's expected return date are not yet clear. The 25-year-old is competing for a bench spot this spring.

Cardinals' Yairo Munoz: In thick of utility spot battle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Munoz, who entered Tuesday's Grapefruit League loss to the Nationals in the fourth inning at shortstop and went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run, is one of several candidates for the infield utility player spot, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports. "He's out there, competing," Cardinals manager Mike Shildt said. "And he's versatile, and he's done it. He went about it, and has been going about it well, the whole camp."

The versatile 25-year-old is competing with the likes of veteran newcomer Brad Miller, as well as Tommy Edman, Edmundo Sosa and Max Schrock. Munoz prepped for the job battle this offseason by dropping nearly 30 pounds, and in addition to his ability to fill in at both shortstop and third base, he's also capable of playing all three outfield spots. Munoz has also shown well at the plate over big-league stints in each of the last two seasons, slashing .273/.331/.391 with 34 extra-base hits (23 doubles, one triple, 10 home runs), 55 RBI, 13 stolen bases, 18 walks and 59 runs across 510 plate appearances.

Cardinals' Yairo Munoz: Comes through as pinch hitter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Munoz entered Wednesday's loss to the Brewers as a pinch hitter in the fifth inning and went 1-for-1 with a stolen base and a run.

Munoz reached on an infield single aided by an error on the part of Eric Thames. The utility man has continued to log intermittent starts during August, but he's on pace for less playing time overall than he was in a month of July that was shortened by the All-Star break. Munoz is yet to record an extra-base hit in the current month, and he hasn't left the yard since July 21.

Cardinals' Yairo Munoz: Back on bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Munoz is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Brewers.

Munoz drew starts at shortstop and in right field in the Cardinals' final two games of the weekend series in Cincinnati, going 3-for-8 with three strikeouts between the contests. The 24-year-old's versatility should continue to earn him frequent usage off the bench, but he can't be counted on to make regular starts while the Cardinals are reasonably healthy. Before his back-to-back starts, Munoz had cracked the lineup just once in the Cardinals' preceding 11 contests.

Cardinals' Yairo Munoz: Huge performance in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Munoz went 3-for-5 with two doubles, two stolen bases, two runs and an RBI in Wednesday's 14-8 win over the Pirates.

Munoz supplied his second three-hit performance in less than a week and may have at least temporarily captured a near-everyday role on the strength of his recent surge at the plate. He'll stick in the lineup for a fifth straight game in Thursday's series finale, manning left field while Tyler O'Neill hits the bench for a second consecutive day.

Cardinals' Yairo Munoz: Belts second homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Munoz went 3-for-4 with a triple, a solo home run, two RBI, a stolen base and two runs scored Sunday against the Reds.

Munoz drove in a run in the second inning on an infield single, and he tacked on an insurance run in the ninth with a solo blast to left field. The 24-year-old is slashing .306/.324/.417 with 10 RBI over 55 games this season.

Cardinals' Yairo Munoz: Heads into break hot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Munoz went 2-for-3 in a loss to the Giants on Sunday.

On an afternoon where the Cardinals were shut out and limited to six hits overall, Munoz came through with the team's only multi-hit effort. The versatile utility man has been a consistent contributor at the plate when given the opportunity, as he heads into the All-Star break with a .307/.322/.386 line across 90 plate appearances while already logging time at three infield and outfield spots apiece.

Cardinals' Yairo Munoz: Swats first home run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Munoz went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Tuesday's loss to Seattle.

Hitting atop the Cardinals' order, Munoz came through with a 404-foot blast to left field in the seventh inning that temporarily knotted the score. It was his first home run of the season after hitting eight in 293 at-bats in 2018. Despite the lack of power, Munoz has shown a knack for getting base hits in limited playing time this season, batting .316 in 76 at-bats.

Cardinals' Yairo Munoz: Comes through again in spot start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Munoz went 2-for-3 with a two-run single, a walk and a stolen base in an extra-innings win over the Padres on Sunday. He was also caught stealing on another attempt.

Munoz once again capitalized in a relatively rare start, and his timely single in the sixth inning started a Cardinals rally from a 3-0 deficit. The versatile utility man has reached safely in three straight games and is proving more difficult to keep out of the lineup after hitting .345 over a limited sample of 29 at-bats during June. Matt Carpenter's illness opened up the starting opportunity at third base Sunday, but Munoz's considerable positional versatility allowed him to remain in the game at center field as part of a triple switch to start the bottom of the eighth inning.

Cardinals' Yairo Munoz: Smacks timely two-bagger
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Munoz entered a loss to the Padres on Saturday as a defensive replacement in the bottom of the fifth inning and went 1-for-2 with an RBI double.

Munoz took over at shortstop for Paul DeJong midway through the blowout defeat and eventually delivered with his run-scoring two-bagger in the eighth inning. The young infielder is capable of filling multiple positions, but even an extended absence on the part of fellow utility man Jedd Gyorko (calf/wrist/back) and the season-long struggles of Matt Carpenter haven't served to open up any appreciable playing time for Munoz. Nevertheless, he's made good use of his relatively scant opportunities, with Saturday's production bringing his season line to .308/.314/.362 across 70 plate appearances.

Cardinals' Yairo Munoz: Reinstated from restricted list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Munoz was activated from the restricted list Friday, Rick Hummel of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Munoz had experienced some travel delays in his return from the Dominican Republic, which had led to a one-day stay on the restricted list when his paternity leave eligibility expired. Rangel Ravelo was sent back to Triple-A Memphis in a corresponding move.

June 20, 2019 04:40 PM
Cardinals' Yairo Munoz: Shifted to restricted list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Munoz (personal) was shifted to the restricted list Thursday.

Munoz is apparently experiencing some travel delays returning from the Dominican Republic following paternity leave, prompting the Cardinals to reclassify his status. It remains to be seen when Munoz will be back with the Cardinals at this point.

June 17, 2019 01:08 PM
Cardinals' Yairo Munoz: Lands on paternity list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Munoz was placed on the paternity list as expected Monday.

Munoz will head home to be with his newborn child. He's eligible to miss up to three days, so he'll be back in St. Louis no later than Thursday. Rangel Ravelo's contract was selected in a corresponding move.

Cardinals' Yairo Munoz: Likely to go on paternity leave
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cardinals are expected to place Munoz on the paternity list Monday, Mark Saxon of The Athletic reports.

Munoz is set to head to the Dominican Republic to visit with his newborn and could remain away from the Cardinals for the maximum three days. St. Louis is expected to replace Munoz on the active roster with first baseman Rangel Ravelo, whose contract will be selected from Triple-A Memphis ahead of Monday's series opener with the Marlins.

Cardinals' Yairo Munoz: Produces in rare start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Munoz went 1-for-4 with a stolen base and a run in a loss to the Mets on Saturday.

Munoz drew only his third start of June on Saturday, and he hit safely for the fourth time in the last five games overall. The 24-year-old has managed to remain reasonably productive despite not having the opportunity to get into a consistent rhythm at the plate, as he's hitting .286 over his 64 plate appearances this season.
