Max Muncy says he worked hard this off-season to improve against offspeed pitches.
Muncy struggled against breaking pitches in 2019 in what was otherwise a fantastic offensive season for him. The 25-year-old hit 35 homers for the second straight year to go along with an .889 OPS. If he winds up hitting offspeed pitching better, that will only help. His positional flexibility helps make him one of the best mid-round values in fantasy drafts these days.
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.
A good move, Muncy has popped 70 home runs over the last two years and will continue to get on base (.374 OBP) in front of a powerful Dodger lineup, he scored 101 runs last year. Muncy is easily a top ten fantasy option at second base and don’t forget he can help at the corner spots, too.
Max Muncy hit his 35th homer of the season in Saturday's 2-0 win over the Giants.
Muncy finished the game 2-for-3 with a walk. He is now 5-for-11 over his past three games and looks ready for the NLDS, which begins on Thursday.
Max Muncy went 1-for-3 with a grand slam, a walk, and two runs scored in the Dodgers' 6-3 win over the Padres on Tuesday.
Mnucy hit a grand slam in his return to the Dodgers' lineup, as if things couldn't go any better for Los Angeles this year. The 29-year-old lefty slugger now has 34 homers and 96 RBI to go along with an .884 OPS on the season.
