Max Muncy feels strong after elbow injury

Despite a slower start this season, Muncy says he’s feeling much better in his recovery process.

After injuring his elbow last season, Max Muncy is slowly but surely making his way back to his old self.

“I’m not going to use it as an excuse,” Muncy said of his injury, per Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register. “I feel it’s moving well right now...I feel like I’ve been getting some really good swings off. Obviously the numbers don’t show that. But I feel really good at the plate.”

Muncy started the season 1-for-16 before reaching base four times in yesterday’s game, including a home run.

There’s still plenty to work on before Muncy is back to full strength, however. He and manager Dave Roberts agree that he’s only about 85% of the way there, and Roberts also suspects Muncy’s mental game could use a bit of work.
