Dodgers Max Muncy has an Expected Date Set for Return to the Field

America’s Slugger will pick up a bat on Wednesday, play next week!

On Tuesday, the Los Angeles Dodgers provided a pretty big update on injured slugger Max Muncy. First, Muncy was to resume baseball activities by taking some ground balls. Next, Muncy will pick up a bat.

Moreover, things are going according to plan; as the report from David Vassegh on twitter tells us. Muncy is taking swings Wednesday and the skipper expects him to play in a real game next week.

Equally important, the most crucial juncture of recovery from a wrist injury for a baseball player is how the swings go. Consequently, with Muncy taking swings today; if he emerges without issue that is a big step in the process.

Of course, this process that we speak of is Muncy returning with his 33 home runs and .899 OPS to a lineup that already contains the likes of Cody Bellinger, Justin Turner, Corey Seager, Will Smith, Gavin Lux and a whole cast of characters that can ‘bang em’ as Orel Hershiser says.

At the current time, it finally appears the Dodgers are getting back to full-strength. They’re rounding into form nicely with a few weeks to go before the playoffs start to have full maximization (no pun) of all their chess pieces.

If the Dodgers are to get over a hump and win a World Series title, they’re going to need all their offensive weapons at their disposal. Few are as important as Muncy, so we will continue to monitor and update this situation as he makes his way back from injury.

    Very true. If the offense can deliver, then the pressure is off the BP, the weak link (again) going into the post-season. Wouldn’t it be great if, for the 11 wins needed, there is never a save opportunity?
