Dodgers News: Max Muncy Dealing With Grade 2 Hamstring Strain, Not Going on IL Yet

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts provided an update on third baseman Max Muncy shortly before the team’s second game against the Chicago White Sox. Muncy left this past weekend’s series finale against the Philadelphia Phillies with what looked like a hamstring injury. He’s been out since but the team is hopeful that he can return soon.

No injured list for Muncy just yet as the team wants to see if he can make a return without the designation. If the infielder isn’t able to return by Saturday then the team may be forced to make a decision to put him on the shelf for a little bit.

The injury bug continues to bite the Dodgers as Muncy is just another in a long line of players to be hurt this season. However, the team may have caught a break with this one as it looks like Muncy may be okay. However, hamstrings can be tricky so the team will likely use caution with him before he officially returns.

Before the injury Muncy was hitting .191 with 18 home runs and 45 runs batted in. He has struggled from the plate recently and seen his average drop pretty quickly. But he is still a very valuable member of this Dodgers team despite the struggles at the plate. His power hitting ability gives them another slugger in the lineup and he is capable of going deep in every at bat.

Dodger fans are hoping Muncy can return this weekend for multiple reasons. One, the hope is that he is just healthy and can contribute to the team. And secondly, it’s Fathers Day this Sunday so what better gift for Muncy than to be playing the team he owns, the San Francisco Giants.

Let’s hope we get more positive news on this front as the week goes on.
