Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2016
Muncy is the prototypical "Moneyball" product: There's not a lot of hype behind him, but man, can he take walks. Last season at Triple-A Nashville, the 26-year-old walked 13.1 percent of the time and bumped that figure up to 15 percent during his scattered appearances in the big leagues. Even with that bright spot, Muncy still has plenty of blemishes keeping him from garnering regular playing time in Oakland. He strikes out too much, as his strikeout rate hovered around 20 percent both in the minors and in the majors, and he doesn't have the power to make up for it (.071 ISO in the majors). His ability to play all over the infield and the corner outfield spots could help him land a reserve utility role with the big league club, but with bigger prospects knocking on the door to the majors, it will be tough for Muncy to climb much higher than that.
A rash of early season injuries gave Muncy a chance to make his Major League debut, but he did not do much with it, slashing .206/.268/.392 with three homers in 102 at-bats. Muncy had a breakout minor league season in 2013 when he hit 25 bombs with 100 RBI between Single-A and Double-A, but backed that season up with only seven homers in 435 Double-A at-bats in 2014. Muncy does exhibit a solid feel for the strike zone and his high walk numbers have enabled him to post a career .378 OPS across four minor League seasons. The A's farm system is not stacked overall, but one of their strengths is at corner infield which is not a great sign for Muncy's long-term prospects. After two years of his power slipping following the 2013 breakout, Muncy's star is dwindling, but the 25-year-old will begin the year at Triple-A with a chance to appear in Oakland again if injuries strike before their bigger corner prospects are ready.
