Max Muncy (33, LA Dodgers), who became the sole leader in home runs in the major leagues and was selected as the National League Player of the Week for the first time in his personal career, enjoyed a double celebration.
The Los Angeles Dodgers team announced on the 25th (Korean time) that Muncy was on the list of maternity leave through official SNS. Accordingly, Michael Bush (26) was called up from the minor leagues.
Maternity leave in the major leagues can be used up to three days. Now, Muncy is set to return mid-week after sharing his wife’s birth. 토토사이트
Muncy hit a whopping five homers over the past week, leading the major leagues alone in the season with 11 homers. A performance that washed away last year’s sluggishness.
If Muncy continues his current momentum, he will easily break his single-season home run record of 36.
Bush, who was promoted to the major leagues in place of Muncy, is ranked third in the Los Angeles Dodgers and a prospect in the late 40s to early 50s overall. He can watch second base and outfield.
This season, in 21 minor league Triple-A games, he recorded a batting average of 0.337, 2 homers, 16 RBIs, an on-base percentage of 0.461, and an OPS of 0.967.
At bat, he has excellent contact and power, and his speed is also average. However, he is known for being a poor defensive player.
