Munoz (wrist) played in both of Triple-A Worcester's first two games, going 2-for-8 with four strikeouts.
Munoz looked to be at risk of missing the start of the minor-league season after he was placed on the 7-day injured list a month ago with wrist inflammation, but he made a full recovery in advance of Worcester's opener. The 26-year-old will likely fill a utility role for Worcester this season.
The Red Sox placed Munoz on the minor-league injured list Sunday due to right wrist inflammation, Christopher Smith of The Springfield Republican reports.
The transaction is retroactive to April 2 and opens a spot on Triple-A Worcester's active roster for newly-signed pitcher Hector Rondon. It's unclear if Munoz will be ready to play by the time Worcester begins its season in May.
The Red Sox reassigned Munoz to their minor-league camp Wednesday, Julian McWilliams of The Boston Globe reports.
Munoz's ability to play all over the infield and outfield earned him a look at big-league spring training as a utility man, but the non-roster invitee was somewhat redundant with all of Marwin Gonzalez, Enrique Hernandez and Danny Santana (elbow/foot) offering similar versatility. He'll likely begin the season at Triple-A Worcester.
Munoz was outrighted to Triple-A Pawtucket on Monday, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.
The Red Sox now have two open spots on the 40-man roster in advance of Thursday's Rule 5 draft. Munoz hit .333 with one home run and five doubles in 45 plate appearances with the Red Sox last season, but they obviously don't view him as a big part of the future.
Munoz signed a one-year contract with the Red Sox on Wednesday, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.
The 25-year-old's contract was selected by Boston at the end of August, and he had a .844 OPS in 45 plate appearances before landing on the injured list with back spasms. Munoz should be in competition for a utility role at spring training for the Red Sox.
Munoz was placed on the 10-day injured list with back spasms, retroactive to Sept. 18.
Munoz was removed from Thursday's game with lower-back spasms, and he'll require a stay on the injured list as a result. With just over a week remaining in the regular season, Munoz shouldn't return to the field in 2020. Alex Verdugo (hamstring) is also nursing an injury, so Tzu-Wei Lin could potentially fill in as an outfielder if needed. Cesar Puello was also recalled in a corresponding move.
Munoz was removed from Thursday's game against the Marlins after experiencing lower-back spasms, Ian Browne of MLB.com reports.
Munoz went 0-for-2 before being replace in left field during the fifth inning. The 25-year-old should be considered day-to-day until more is known on the injury.
Munoz went 2-for-5 with two singles and a stolen base Wednesday in an 8-4 loss to the Marlins.
Munoz made his fourth consecutive start Wednesday and was one of three Red Sox players to record multiple hits on the night while also stealing his second base of the season. The 25-year-old is hitting .349/.349/.535 with a home run, four RBI and six runs scored in 43 at-bats this season and will continue to occupy a role in the outfield, starting regularly alongside Alex Verdugo and Jackie Bradley.
Munoz will start in right field and will bat sixth Wednesday against the Marlins, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.
Though he'll be making his fourth straight start, Munoz is still expected to fill a short-side platoon role in the Boston outfield, with either Bradley or Alex Verdugo sitting out against southpaws to make room for him. Bradley will be the odd man out Wednesday with lefty Trevor Rogers on the mound for Miami.
Munoz (hip) is starting in left field and batting sixth Thursday against the Rays, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.
He had a hit in all six games he played with the Red Sox prior to suffering the minor hip injury, so look for Munoz to play fairly regularly as long as he is productive down the stretch. He is hitting .476 with one home run, three strikeouts and zero walks in 21 at-bats.
Munoz (hip) could return as soon as Thursday against the Rays, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.
He had been producing in something close to an everyday role prior to the hip injury, notching a six-game hitting streak (.476 average) with one home run since entering the lineup Sept. 1. Once healthy, he should return to seeing steady action all over the field.
Munoz left Sunday's game in the first inning with a right hip strain, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.
While it looked like it might have been Munoz's hamstring, it's a hip injury for the 25-year-old. Munoz was off to a blistering start with his new club and it would be a shame if this turns out to be something that requires an IL stint.
Munoz left Sunday's game against the Blue Jays with an apparent right hamstring injury, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.
After singling to begin the home half of the first inning, Munoz grabbed at his hamstring. He was lifted for a pinch runner after a brief conversation with manager Ron Roenicke. With the single, Munoz is now batting just shy of .500 through six games with Boston.
Munoz went 6-for-7 with two doubles, one home run, three RBI and four runs over both ends of Saturday's doubleheader against the Blue Jays.
Munoz spent the first five weeks of the season at Boston's alternate site in Pawtucket before getting a callup last week. He's hit safely in all four games in which he's appeared, going 8-for-15 with four extra-base hits. With Andrew Benintendi (ribs) sidelined, left field is open for the suddenly hot Munoz.
Munoz started at designated hitter and went 1-for-4 with a double in Tuesday's 10-3 loss to the Braves.
The Red Sox are managing the absence of J.D. Martinez (hand), who could return Wednesday. Munoz was called up from the alternate camp Monday and is not expected to have an extended role.
Munoz's contract was selected by the Red Sox on Monday, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.
Munoz appeared at six different positions for the Cardinals across his first two big-league seasons while hitting a respectable .273/.331/.391 across 510 plate appearances. He'll likely fill a similar utility role for the Red Sox.
Munoz will not be included on Boston's 30-man roster, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.
Munoz was always a long shot to break camp with the Red Sox after signing a minor-league deal with the team in March. The 25-year-old, who hit .267/.298/.355 across 88 games with the Cardinals in 2019, will provide Boston with additional infield depth.
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.
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.
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.
