 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 
 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
Jeff McNeil feels like a late breakout player, but he just turned 28 years old. But one thing we know we need to judge players on is the entirety of their work, not just their most recent performance. With McNeil, if you look at his minor league numbers, you have to wonder if the power he showcased (23 home runs) - in a season where everyone else was hitting home runs - is for real. If it's not, he's a replaceable player, even at his premium position.
Michael Waterloo - 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
There were many skeptics after McNeil's strong rookie performance but it now clear that he is a hitter through and through. He'll again compete for the batting crown and seems likely to his 20+ homers once agin for the Mets this season.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
  Will boost your average, will be a solid contributor elsewhere, and has position flexibility. Very solid pick at ADP.
