2022 Player Outlook
The Mariners got a good one here. After not pitching in 2020, Munoz logged just two outs in 2021, but the team agreed to a four year deal with the young right-hander. Through 23.2 career innings in the big leagues, Munoz has a 3.07 percent strikeout rate, 1.23 WHIP and 41.1 percent ground ball rate. Munoz is just 23 years young but he boasts impressive strikeout potential. At each stop in the minors where he logged at least 10 innings of work, he posted a K/9 in the double-digits. His workload will be something to monitor in 2022, but this kid could be elite in the strikeout department as soon as 2022.
