News

  Max Muncy says he worked hard this off-season to improve against offspeed pitches.

  The Dodgers have given Max Muncy a three-year extension worth $26 million with a $13 million club option for 2023. The move buys out his arbitration years plus one year of free agency with the option.

Notes 
 Remember when a broken hamate bone was supposed to zap power? Matt Olson laughed at that notion, as he still hit 36 home runs last season after suffering the injury in the first week of the season. Olson is a popular target in the industry, and it makes sense, given his job security, power, and production. There are concerns about his home ballpark and his numbers against lefties, but if you miss out on the first wave of first basemen, this is your last chance to grab a true contender to finish top three at the position.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
With the three positions he plays, it's worth wondering why Max Muncy isn't going even earlier? Sure, he's a late-career breakout, but he repeated his 2018 success in 2019, and the Dodgers are going to have him locked into their everyday lineup. In OBP leagues, he's more valuable, as his average leaves much to be desired, but even if he repeats his 2018 and 2019 numbers again in 2020, he's worth the cost.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 After two years of a low BABIP, Olson's BA finally jumped to .267. It isn't probable he will offer more than that but fantasy owners know 50 HRs and 120 RBIs is truly within reach if he doesn't miss a full month this season.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Muncy now has 70 homers over the last two seasons and while fantasy owners know he won't be a source of help in the batting average department, he still managed 100+ runs because of the 90 walks. Multi-position eligibility certainly doesn't hurt either.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 If chasing upside, I prefer Olson to Rizzo. If Olson stays healthy, I can see a HR title type year.
