Dodgers Re-Sign Slugger To Contract Extension

On the whole, he isn't having the most prolific season with the bat, but that hasn't stopped the Los Angeles Dodgers from re-signing infielder/DH Max Muncy to a huge one-year deal. The slugger has agreed to a $13.5M extension.

The deal includes a team option for $10M in 2024. 

Muncy's response to the extension? "It means everything to me," he said.  

Due to an injury, he was off to an extremely slow start this season, but the two-time All-star has hit seven home runs in August, with an 1.148 OPS in his last 15 games. And his numbers since joining the team in 2018 are indisputable.

Over the past four seasons, Muncy leads the Dodgers in HR, RBIs, fWAR, and games played. 

A torn ulnar collateral ligament in his left elbow on the last day of the 2021 season led to him completely reworking his swing this spring, resulting in the slow start. 

Overall, Muncy is hitting .190 with 16 home runs and 47 RBIs.
