RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

After slashing .320/.372/.480 in the High-A California League in 2015, Munoz was promoted to Double-A Midland. He struggled to find his form, slashing .240/.286/.367 in 102 games with the Rockhounds. Although it was a down season for Munoz, the good news is the glove-first player is still just 21 years old. He made the majority of his starts in 2016 at shortstop, but he also started more than 20 games at second and third base. His true utility-man status makes him a valuable prospect, something the A's have acknowledged by adding him to their 40-man roster. Although he isn't major league ready, Oakland's decision shows how much raw talent the young utility-man possesses. He will likely start off again in Double-A, hoping to settle in and regain his swing before a Triple-A Nashville promotion.
