Max Muncy (2B) LA - May. 09

https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=740907

Muncy stated that he has been hitting in a cage "a couple times a week" but is "trying not to overdo it" in an interview with John Hartung of Spectrum SportsNet LA.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: "Once things start up...it's going to be a lot of games in a short period of time," Muncy theorized in explaining his rationale for wanting to stay fresh during MLB's hiatus. The 29-year-old is slated to take on a near-everyday role as the Dodgers' starting first baseman in 2020, with occasional time at second base.

Max Muncy (2B) LA - Apr. 11

https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=740654

Muncy spent time this offseason working on his approach to offspeed pitches, Cary Osborne of Dodger Insider reports.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Despite making his first All-Star team last season, Muncy struggled against offspeed offerings, batting a paltry .197 against such pitches, per Statcast. That was a significant dropoff in comparison to his 2018 campaign during which he batted .268 against offspeed pitches. As a result, Muncy consulted with Dodger hitting coaches Brant Brown and Robert Van Scoyoc in the offseason, both of whom flew to Texas to work with the slugger. Muncy also spent time addressing his defensive mechanics -- in particular his footwork -- in an effort to shore up a second self-perceived area in need of improvement. The 29-year-old is expected to play primarily at first base in 2020, though he should also see some time at second base.

Agreed to a three-year contract extension for $24.5 million. Team option for $13 million or $1.5 million buyout in 2023.

Max probably thought, Hey, I want an opt-out option. Then thought, Nah.

Surprising that Max's HR/FB was actually lower last last year, even if just sightly.
