Eight-season, 180-homer slugger gets his wish, plays more for Dodgers…2-year, $32 billion extension

“The Dodgers aren’t wasting any time getting the offseason started,” MLB.com reported on Wednesday, “The Dodgers made their first big decision after the World Series ended. They signed third baseman Max Muncy to a two-year, $24 million extension. The deal keeps the National League All-Star under contract through 2025.”

In 2026, the Dodgers have an option to extend the contract for one more year for a $10 million payment.굿모닝토토 주소

Muncy, who made his big league debut with Oakland in 2015, has been a Dodger since 2018. In eight big league seasons, he has played in 847 games, batting .222 with 180 home runs, 489 RBIs, a .473 OPS and a .824 slugging percentage.

In 96 games over two seasons with Oakland, he batted 1-for-9 with five home runs and 17 RBIs. With the Dodgers, he excelled. In six seasons with them through this year, he’s batted .356 with 175 homers, 472 RBIs, a .486 on-base percentage and an .842 OPS in 751 games.

Despite not having a high batting average, Muncy is one of the more prolific players in the Dodgers lineup, with six straight seasons of double-digit home runs and four 30-homer seasons.

Muncy played in 135 games this season, batting .211 with 36 homers and 105 RBIs. He had his first 100-RBI season of his career and slugged .333 with a .475 on-base percentage and .808 OPS.

MLB.com wrote, “Muncy has a clearer future at third base. He has said multiple times that he wants to continue playing for the Dodgers, even if it means getting paid less than what the market will bear. Barring a trade, Muncy will be hitting in center field for at least two more seasons.”

Muncy was a National League All-Star in 2019 and 2021. In 2019, he batted .251 with 35 homers and 98 RBIs in 141 games, and in 2021, he batted .244 with 36 homers and 94 RBIs in 144 games.
