Max Muncy has been an MVP candidate for the Los Angeles Dodgers throughout much of the season despite going through an early lull and battling multiple injuries.
One of which was an oblique strain that came on the heels of a mysterious ankle injury. Despite initial expectations that he would not go on the 10-day injured list, the oblique trouble wound up sidelining Muncy for a brief stretch.
He didn’t show any ill-effects of what can be a long-term injury, though there was some minor back tightness over the past few days. Muncy remaining relatively healthy after the oblique injury was related to scaling back.
