Mariners' Andres Munoz: Beginning throwing program
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Munoz (elbow) has begun a throwing program, Daniel Kramer of reports.

Munoz threw off a mound in the middle of July and will continue to ramp up his work while rehabbing from Tommy John surgery. He is not expected to return to formal game action this season, though his progress bodes well for a potential return early in the 2022 campaign.

Mariners' Andres Munoz: Throws off mound
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Munoz (elbow) threw off a mound Saturday.

Munoz had his rehab process from Tommy John surgery paused in March because of a setback. The right-hander appears to have made substantial progress since, however, as he's reached the important milestone of throwing a bullpen session. It's still not entirely clear if Munoz could become an option to join the Mariners' bullpen during the season's final months, but that will likely depend on how he progresses in the coming weeks.

Mariners' Andres Munoz: Still not throwing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Munoz (elbow), whose rehabilitation process from Tommy John surgery was halted in March due to a setback, still hasn't resumed throwing, Daniel Kramer of reports.

The 22-year-old fireballer boasts a 105 mph fastball, so there's undoubtedly plenty of anticipation with respect to seeing him in game action. However, while the Mariners had hoped at one point that would be possible by early June, Munoz's extended pause is beginning to put that timeline in some doubt.

Mariners' Andres Munoz: Suffers minor setback
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mariners manager Scott Servais said Thursday that Munoz (elbow) hasn't been throwing much recently following a setback in his recovery, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

Munoz was already slated to miss significant time to begin the regular season following Tommy John surgery in March 2020, but he's been limited over the past few weeks due to a minor setback. Servais didn't sound too concerned, but it's not yet clear when the right-hander will be able to resume throwing.

Mariners' Andres Munoz: Heads to injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Munoz (elbow) was placed on the 60-day injured list Thursday, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.

Munoz underwent Tommy John surgery in March of 2020 and is still in the midst of his rehab. He has been able to throw bullpen sessions in the early portions of spring training and appears on track for approximately a June return. Munoz's placement on the injured list made room on the 40-man roster for James Paxton.

Mariners' Andres Munoz: Throwing bullpens
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Munoz (elbow) has been throwing bullpen sessions but is not expected to appear in any Cactus League games, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

Munoz came over from San Diego in an August trade which sent Austin Nola the other way despite the fact that he was sidelined while recovering from Tommy John surgery. He underwent that procedure back in March, so it's no surprise that he won't quite be ready for game action during spring training. The fact that he's advanced to bullpen work is certainly a positive, though, so he should be on track to return sometime around June.

Mariners' Andres Munoz: Resumes mound work
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Munoz (elbow) is throwing off a mound and could join the Mariners' bullpen by June, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

Munoz underwent Tommy John surgery in March, but he appears to be progressing well in his recovery. While he won't be ready to debut with his new team by Opening Day, the Mariners hope that he'll be able to return by June as long as he doesn't face any setbacks.

Mariners' Andres Munoz: Traded to Seattle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Munoz (elbow) was traded from the Padres to the Mariners on Sunday for Austin Nola and several other players, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

Munoz underwent Tommy John surgery in March and will miss the entire 2020 season as a result. He could return at some point in 2021, but he'll go through his recovery process with a new organization. The right-hander was effective in his first taste of major-league action last year as he posted a 3.91 ERA and 30.9 percent strikeout rate over 23 innings with the Padres prior to being shut down.

Padres' Andres Munoz: Moved to IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Padres placed Munoz (elbow) on the 60-day injured list Sunday.

The transaction was merely procedural after Munoz required Tommy John surgery back in March. He'll miss the entire 2020 season and could miss a portion of the 2021 campaign while recovering from the procedure.

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 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 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.

April 4, 2019 07:12 PM
Padres' Andres Munoz: Back at Double-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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