Max Muncy Hit By Pitch

SCOUT ANALYST JOHN BOLLMAN'S TAKE

Max Muncy was hit by a pitch in the wrist during last night’s game. He was removed from the game and he is expected to miss time. He will be out of the lineup tonight and we will know more about the extent of the injury before tonight’s game. His replacement in fantasy is worth a look.

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

You can expect Max Muncy to be a good bench player who will start in certain weeks the rest of the season. His 49.92 projected fantasy points puts him at #44 behind Yonder Alonso and ahead of Matt Skole. He is expected to be out through 9/9 which impacts his rest of season ranking. He has averaged 3.12 fantasy points in his past 265 games, which is slightly less than our projected per game average. He is projected to average 3.32 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#10) is better than his rank based on total fantasy points. He is overrated if you compare his ownership based rank with his projection rank. At 98%, he is the #12 most highly owned first baseman. Max Muncy is expected to come up short of this season-to-date's #9 fantasy position rank.
