You love to see a Dodger get the recognition he deserves! While we’re still more than a month away from the upcoming All-Star game in Colorado, it’s never too early to start dreaming up teams for each league in baseball.
With that, one MLB analyst dropped his starters for the National League team and listed Dodgers’ slugger Max Muncy as his starting first baseman.

Fox Sports analyst Ben Verlander listed Muncy among the greats in the NL, recognizing the sneaky great season Max is having.
In 53 games this year, Muncy is batting .274 with a league-leading .433 on-base percentage and .549 slugging. America’s Slugger has connected on 13 home runs while driving in 30 runs and leading all of baseball with 44 walks.
Max really turned up his game in May when he hit .330 with an on-base-plus-slugging of 1.155 in 26 games. And to top it all off, he leads baseball with a 3.2 bWAR.
Was Max Muncy snubbed of NL Player of the Month honors for May?
