2023 Player Outlook
Health was certainly an issue for Muncy as he struggled a little more in 2022 with his batting average as he hit just .197. When we were getting 30-plus home runs and close to 100 RBI, we could live with a batting average close to .250, but Muncy should be able to get at least half of the way back in 2023 and his 15% walk rate makes things look even better in OBP leagues. From a contact perspective, Muncy still ranked in the 91st percentile with barrel rate, and his 20.9-degree average launch angle makes it clear what he is after. As Muncy got healthier in the second half of last season, he hit 12 home runs with 39 RBI in 63 games while batting .230, and that is more like it.
