Dodgers: Max Muncy Could Be Back in the Lineup on Thursday

The Dodgers look like they will be getting a little bit more healthy this week. We already know that Clayton Kershaw should get back very soon, and Roberts made the announcement that he would be the starter for Sunday afternoon’s game. 

But we also could be getting Max Muncy back into the lineup. Doc said on Wednesday that Muncy‘s time with Oklahoma City was done, finishing up the final game of his rehab assignment on Wednesday afternoon. 

He has been out since the end of April after aggravating the elbow that he suffered a torn UCL in. Over his 4 games with OKC, Muncy went 2-for-14 with a walk-off homerun and 6 strikeouts at Triple-A. The Dodgers apparently think that was enough time to slot him back in.

The Dodgers ran into a bit of an embarrassing moment this weekend against the Mets. It looked for a moment like they didn’t entirely know the rules after trying to have a position player pitch in a game where they were down 5 runs. It was very…weird. 

Who doesn’t love a good lockerroom tradition following a win? Dodges fans were treated to a new fun one this week when it was reported that they had Club Dub following victories. And of course, it was founded by Justin Turner.

  1. Dodgers management just doesn’t get it when it comes to Max Muncy. He needs a time to have his UCL injury heal before he returns to the team. There is a reason he went 2/14 at OKC. It’s because he’s still injured. He isn’t needed now … he will be needed in September. Don’t look for much from Max on his ill-timed return. I think Max gets it. He said during spring training that he will need time to fully recover before returning to the lineup, but suddenly there he was on opening day. The good team leader he is, he said that he had healed much faster than expected. Management doesn’t get it.
