RP - SEA
Andres Munoz took the blown save and loss on Sunday against the Red Sox, allowing five runs including a grand slam.
Munoz entered the bottom of the 10th inning with the Mariners leading 4-3. He allowed an RBI single to Enrique Hernández that tied the game and later had a chance to escape the inning otherwise unscathed until Franchy Cordero launched a grand slam on an 0-2 count with two outs.
Seattle Mariners RP Andres Munoz pitched the seventh inning on Saturday, striking out two, and allowing two hits for one earned run in the Mariners' 5-4 loss to the Mets.
Munoz is a young prospect for the Mariners as he is just 23 years old and will need time to develop as he has just one save so far this season. The relief pitcher should not be rostered as he has an ERA of 4.22 a WHIP of 1.50 and 20 strikeouts through 12 games he has appeared in.
Andres Munoz tossed a scoreless ninth inning on Tuesday against the Rays, allowing one hit and one walk while striking out three.
After a Mariners 8-0 lead turned to 8-4, Munoz pitched the ninth inning agsinst Tampa Bay where he continues to showcase his elite stuff. Paul Sewald did return to the team, so he'll likely be activated from the COVID IL soon. In what is a fairly crowded Mariners bullpen, it might be tough for Munoz to see save opportunities with Sewald healthy. Drew Steckenrider has struggled a bit his last two appearances so if that continues, Munoz could jump him in terms of appearances in the last couple of innings in close games. It is ultimately a tough bullpen to predict on a nightly basis though between Sewald, Steckenrider, Munoz and Diego Castillo.
Andres Munoz earned the save on Friday against the Royals, allowing one hit to go along with one strikeout and one walk.
With Paul Sewald (COVID-19) sidelined, Munoz earned the save opportunity. After a leadoff single, he forced a double play followed by a walk and strikeout to secure the win for the Mariners.
Seattle Mariners general manager Jerry Dipoto said Thursday that reliever Andres Munoz is restarting his throwing progression.
Munoz, who suffered a setback in the spring, was part of the huge trade between the Mariners and Padres. Dipoto hinted that Munoz could be ready by August or September. After a strong start to the season, the Mariners bullpen has taken a huge step back as of late.
