Dodgers News: Max Muncy Exits Early with Apparent Leg Injury

Not what the Dodgers wanted to see at the end of this long road trip but Max Muncy was forced from Sunday’s game against the Rays with an apparent leg injury. He pulled up slowly at second base in the third inning and was checked on by Dave Roberts and the training staff. The issue looked to be either his left knee or possibly a calf cramp — something in the lower left leg area.

Max stayed in and eventually scored but was out of the game when the Dodgers went back out on defense, so the removal seems to be precautionary. Chris Taylor took over at third base and James Outman came into the game off the bench and went into center field.

Muncy was 1-2 in the game, hitting his 17th home run of the season and reaching base on an error. He scored two runs.

Sunday’s game has hardly been a pitcher’s duel with 14 runs being scored over the first two innings alone. Rookie starter Gavin Stone once again didn’t have it, allowing 7 runs over 2 innings for his worst outing yet as a big leaguer. RHP Michael Grove is nearly ready to come off the injured list and could be an option to replace Grove in the rotation.


Muncy left due to a left hamstring cramp.

  1. Its to bad about Muncy and its to bad about the Dodgers upper manganment throwing in with the woke crowed by letting that sick group of creeps into the stadium they ought to be ashamed of them selfs you know we have a lot of children that come to the games and we don’t need a lot of creeps dressing up like women parading on the infield spreading hate i truly hope the dodgers pay the price for this the players are not included.
