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.

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.

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.

Cardinals' Yairo Munoz: Not seeing much action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Munoz remains out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Reds.

Munoz has started only once in the Cardinals' last 13 games and will continue to see minimal action while the team is at full strength in both the infield and outfield. The youngster has at least been productive in his minimal opportunities this season, batting .295 in 45 plate appearances.

Cardinals' Yairo Munoz: Productive in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Munoz went 2-for-5 with a double and a run in a loss to the Pirates on Sunday.

Munoz was solid out of the top of the order, parlaying a starting opportunity into a multi-hit effort for the third time in May. The versatile infielder is hitting .367 over his first 31 plate appearances, although Sunday's two-bagger was just his second extra-base hit of the season.

Cardinals' Yairo Munoz: Mans leadoff spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Munoz will start in center field and serve as the Cardinals' leadoff hitter Sunday against the Pirates.

Munoz has previously made only two starts this season, with both coming in the infield and out of the No. 8 spot in the order. He'll be filling in for Dexter Fowler in the outfield in the series finale while replacing a resting Matt Carpenter atop the lineup, but Munoz should be headed back to his usual bench role when the Cardinals begin a road trip Tuesday in Atlanta.

Cardinals' Yairo Munoz: Keeps up hot hitting
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Munoz went 2-for-3 and was caught stealing on his one attempt in a loss to the Phillies on Wednesday.

Munoz provided the only multi-hit effort of the contest for the light-hitting Cardinals, who were completely flummoxed by Jerad Eickhoff and Seranthony Dominguez. Munoz has seen precious few opportunities this season but largely put them to good use. Factoring in Wednesday's showing, the 24-year-old is 8-for-21 (.381) with a double, a walk and three runs thus far in 2019.

Cardinals' Yairo Munoz: Takes advantage of rare opportunity
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Munoz went 3-for-4 with a run in a loss to the Nationals on Thursday.

Essentially a forgotten man thus far in 2019 after a solid rookie campaign, Munoz logged his first start of the season Thursday. He proceeded to generate the most hits of any Cardinals player on a day when the St. Louis offense was thoroughly stymied by Stephen Strasburg and three relievers. Despite the solid performance, Munoz doesn't figure in for many opportunities barring injuries.

May 2, 2019 01:44 PM
Cardinals' Yairo Munoz: Garners rare start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Munoz will start at shortstop and bat eighth Thursday against the Nationals.

Munoz will be included in the big club's lineup for the first time all season with everyday shortstop Paul DeJong hitting the bench. Once Dexter Fowler overcomes the illness that has kept him idle the past few days, the Cardinals will be at full strength at every position, making at-bats even more difficult to come by for Munoz.

Cardinals' Yairo Munoz: Recalled from Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Munoz was promoted to the major leagues from Triple-A Memphis on Tuesday.

Munoz was optioned to the minors Monday, but injuries have forced the Cardinals into making a number of roster moves. With Mike Mayers (lat) and Tyler O'Neill (elbow) heading to the injured list, both Munoz and Giovanny Gallegos will get another shot in the majors. Munoz is 1-for-5 with a walk in five games this season with St. Louis.

April 15, 2019 04:36 PM
Cardinals' Yairo Munoz: Sent back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Munoz was returned to Triple-A Memphis.

This was expected, as Munoz was serving as the Cardinals' 26th man during the team's series against the Reds in Mexico over the weekend. The young infielder appeared in just one game during his time with the big club and didn't record an at-bat.

Cardinals' Yairo Munoz: Joining team for Mexico series
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Munoz will be added as the 26th player for this coming weekend's series against the Reds in Monterrey, Mexico, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports.

The Cardinals are afforded the extra roster spot for the Mexico Series, and with 13 pitchers already on the active roster, their final slot had to go to a position player. Enter Munoz, who was just optioned to Triple-A Memphis last Saturday and will be required to return to the Redbirds following the conclusion of the two-game series. Munoz has just five plate appearances at the big-league level this season and is hitting .231 across 14 plate appearances in his first three games in the minors.

Cardinals' Yairo Munoz: Heading to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Munoz was optioned to Triple-A Memphis after Saturday's loss to the Padres, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Munoz made the Opening Day roster as a reserve infielder with Jedd Gyorko (calf) on the injured list but will head to Triple-A now that Gyorko has returned to the 25-man roster. He had a .276/.350/.413 slash line in 108 games for the Cardinals in 2018 and may not stick around in the minors for long. Shortly after Munoz's demotion was announced, manager Mike Shildt said that the 24-year-old would likely rejoin the Cardinals as a 26th man for the team's two-game series in Mexico with the Reds next weekend, per Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com.

Cardinals' Yairo Munoz: Makes Opening Day roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Munoz's spot on the Opening Day roster is now locked in with Jedd Gyorko (calf) opening the season on the injured list, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports.

Munoz was trending toward garnering a spot due to his positional versatility, but Gyorko's season-opening absence helps to officially cement Munoz's status. Munoz is actually listed on the depth chart at three infield positions (second base, third base and shortstop) and in left field. Additionally, manager Mike Shildt had also alluded to plans of having Munoz put in some time behind the dish prior to the official wrap-up of Grapefruit League play in order to prep him for emergency catcher duty during the coming season.
