Muno -- a natural left-handed hitter -- picked up switch-hitting his sophomore year of college, after facing a ton of tough southpaws as a freshman when the program reached the College World Series.
“I faced [current Oriole] Brian Matusz and a couple of top draft picks my freshman year that were throwing lefty, and left-on-left,” Muno said. “It was a pretty tough battle. So I just decided to hit right-handed.”
Note: Muno has a really good weekend hitting RH'ed and all of a sudden, those SSS stats don't look so bad (.750 OPS).
Muno just might become my favorite positional prospect if he keeps this up, not that he has a whole lot of competition.
He just seems like one of those scrappy (because he's small!) guys who will do a little of everything. Like a Kirk of the infield, except with better strikezone judgment.
By the way, has he been playing 2B or SS? Or both?
1 game at SS, 12 at 2B.
If there's any hope of him at SS, another candidate to maybe get promoted to Bingo quasi-aggressively instead of Shields, who has stuck to DH in St. Lucie and hasn't hit much. Could get regular SS time there ahead of Navarro/Kazmar, with Shields sliding in to play 2B in St. Lucie.
