Padres' Andres Munoz: Undergoes Tommy John surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Munoz underwent Tommy John surgery Friday.

Munoz was shut down for workload reasons in mid-September after posting a 3.91 ERA and a 30.9 percent strikeout rate in his 23-inning debut, but the plan to keep him healthy evidently didn't work. A typical recovery timeline would keep him out of action until sometime in the middle of the 2021 season, though he'll still be just 22 years old at that point and will have plenty of time to develop into a shutdown reliever.

Padres' Andres Munoz: Building up for regular season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Munoz completed his first simulated game of the spring Sunday, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Though Munoz reported to camp completely healthy, the Padres are deliberately taking things slowly this spring with the 21-year-old, who is viewed as a key piece in the big-league bullpen in both the immediate and long term. He's expected to toss a bullpen session Tuesday before likely pitching in his first Cactus League game as soon as Thursday. The hard-throwing righty was impressive in his first taste of the big leagues in 2019, posting a 3.91 ERA (3.16 FIP), 1.17 WHIP and 30:11 K:BB in 23 frames.

Padres' Andres Munoz: Shut down for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Munoz won't pitch again this season, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Munoz pitched 58.2 total innings between the minor and major leagues in 2019, more than doubling last year's workload. The fireballing rookie held a 1.69 ERA following his 20th big-league outing Sept. 7 but appeared fatigued over his final two appearances, giving up six runs in 1.2 innings to inflate his season ERA to 3.91. Nonetheless, Munoz turned a lot of heads in his first stint in the majors, averaging 99.9 mph on his fastball and posting an impressive 11.7 K/9 while frequently pitching in high-leverage situations. The 20-year-old is likely to be a key part of the Padres' bullpen next season.

Padres' Andres Munoz: Picks up first save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Munoz got the save against the Giants on Thursday, giving up one earned run on one hit in the ninth inning before closing out San Diego's 5-3 victory. He struck out two and walked one.

Given his first career save opportunity -- likely because Kirby Yates threw 28 pitches in a Wednesday extra-inning loss -- Munoz didn't smoothly sail. He gave up a run and walked a batter, but he came back to tally a pair of strikeouts and successfully preserve the two-run victory. The 20-year-old has dominant stuff that makes him one of the best relief pitcher prospects in baseball, and he's shown it with his numbers so far (1.86 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 24 strikeouts in just 19.1 innings).

Padres' Andres Munoz: Lights out since joining big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Munoz worked around two hits to cover 1.2 scoreless innings in Monday's 8-1 win over the Orioles. He struck out two in the 22-pitch appearance.

Though he's only been up with the Padres for just over two weeks, Munoz has quickly gained a foothold in the team's late-inning mix. Through his first six appearances, Munoz has yet to yield a run and has allowed only five baserunners while striking out 10 over eight frames. Blessed with an 80-grade fastball that touches triple digits, the 20-year-old boasts the power arm teams place a high premium on at the back of bullpens. He could find himself in the mix for saves if the Padres elect to deal All-Star closer Kirby Yates prior to Wednesday's deadline.

Padres' Andres Munoz: Promoted to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Munoz's contract was selected from Triple-A El Paso prior to Friday's game against the Braves, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.

Munoz, a 20-year-old righty, is the best relief-pitching prospect in the game, thanks largely to his monster fastball that can touch 104 mph. He had 58 strikeouts and 18 walks in 35.2 innings split between Double-A and Triple-A. While Munoz has the upside to someday be the top closer in baseball, he will likely work in a setup role as long as Kirby Yates is still on the Padres roster.

Padres' Andres Munoz: Promoted to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Munoz was promoted to Triple-A El Paso on Tuesday, Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports.

The 20-year-old recorded a 1.72 ERA in 15.2 innings for Double-A Amarillo, striking out an incredible 45.7 percent of opposing hitters and touching 104 mph with his fastball. His 15.7 percent walk rate is certainly a concern, but the good has certainly outweighed the bad to this point in his career.

Padres' Andres Munoz: Continues impressive velocity
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Munoz picked up the save while striking out two in a perfect inning for Double-A Amarillo on Wednesday.

Munoz is posting impressive numbers in Double-A so far, but the most notable aspect of this outing was that he threw a pitch that clocked at 104 mph, per Bill Center of Padres.com. He regularly hits triple digits on the gun, and the blistering velocity has helped him post a 1.93 ERA and three saves over 14 innings. At 20 years old, he remains the most enticing minor-league reliever and could be in line for a move to Triple-A El Paso in the near future.

Padres' Andres Munoz: Back at Double-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Munoz is opening the year back at Double-A Amarillo, Mike Rosenbaum of MLB.com reports.

The best relief-pitching prospect in the minors, Munoz has the upside to someday be a top-five closer, thanks largely to a 103-mph fastball. However, he has plenty of work to do with his breaking ball and his command. Look for him to spend most of the year at Triple-A.

Padres' Andres Munoz: Out with balky elbow
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Munoz is being held back in extended spring training with a balky right elbow that limited him during camp, MLB.com's Mike Rosenbaum reports.

The 19-year-old fireballer was a breakout reliever in the Arizona Fall League. A healthy version of Munoz could have climbed from Low-A all the way to Double-A or Triple-A this year, but considering he is dealing with an elbow injury, we may not see him for several months. As a reliever with just 2.1 innings under his belt at Low-A, he doesn't need to be rostered yet in most dynasty leagues, but he could be a closer down the road.
