Player Outlook
Max Muncy continued to take the launch angle revolution to an extreme, but at least it paid off with tying his career best in homers and setting a new personal high with 105 RBI. Muncy's average exit velocity and hard-hit rate were around 80th percentile, but even with a 49.3 percent fly ball rate, Muncy collected only 17 doubles, resulting in a low .221 BABIP. As usual, Muncy walked at an elevated 14.7 percent clip, so he was still better suited for on-base and points leagues than standard 5x5 with batting average. The Dodgers extended Muncy's contract through 2025 with a club option for 2026, so they are clearly happy with his production and his skill set generally ages well. Buffer his batting average in standard leagues and like the Dodgers, you'll be happy with his three-category contributions. Just keep in mind for the first time in several drafts, Muncy does not have multiple-position eligibility; he's third base only to begin the campaign.

  • Dodgers' Max Muncy: Cranks second homer

    Muncy went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 3-2 loss to the Twins. Muncy led off the fourth inning with a 400-foot solo shot off Chris Paddack, tying the game 2-2. It's the second homer of the year for Muncy, who's now batting .250 with a .756 OPS and eight RBI through 14 games this season. The 33-year-old third baseman figures to see plenty of RBI chances while batting behind Freddie Freeman and Shohei Ohtani in the Dodgers' high-powered lineup.

  • Dodgers' Max Muncy: Plays nine innings in exhibition

    Muncy (illness) went 2-for-4 with a double and two RBI on Monday in the Dodgers' 5-2 exhibition win over the South Korean national team in Seoul, South Korea. In the Dodgers' final tuneup before their regular-season opener Wednesday versus the Padres in Seoul, Muncy played nine innings at third base while slotting in as the No. 5 hitter in what appeared to be manager Dave Roberts' preferred lineup configuration versus right-handed pitching. Muncy had missed some workouts last week in Arizona while battling an illness, but his ability to join the Dodgers for the trip to South Korea and play nine innings Monday sets the stage for him to be included in the lineup for both contests of the season-opening series against the Padres this week.

  • Dodgers' Max Muncy: Traveling for season-opening series

    Muncy (illness) said Wednesday he will travel with the Dodgers to South Korea for the season-opening series against the Padres next week, David Vassegh of AM 570 LA Sports reports. The 33-year-old apparently lost 10 pounds while battling a virus for most of the past week, but it appears he'll be back in time for the start of the regular season. Muncy has a week to get his strength back before Opening Day next Wednesday, when he should be locked in at third base for Los Angeles.

  • Dodgers' Max Muncy: Battling illness

    Muncy is away from the Dodgers' camp Tuesday due to illness, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports. He hasn't been in the team's lineup for a few days, and the illness likely explains why that's the case. The Dodgers have just one more Cactus League game before heading to South Korea to take on the Padres in the first two regular-season contests March 20 and 21, but it's not clear whether Muncy will be ready to play in Wednesday's Cactus League contest versus the Mariners.

The Dodgers never seemed too concerned about Muncy's availability for the regular season, and it appears he will return to the playing field after just three days of rest. The 33-year-old has logged three hits in six at-bats so far this spring, including a home run.

    X-rays on Muncy's left hand came back negative Thursday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

The infielder matched his career high with his 36th homer of the season, and he's got a decent chance to set a new personal best with 11 contests left on the schedule.
