Trainer: Alberto Arias

PG Grade: 9

Munoz is a very intriguing prospect but might be the farthest away from being able to compete professionally at this point. In fact, he might be a player that is better off waiting a year to mature and develop his skills before signing. Munoz’s outfield tools and skills are very good, although he shows some young immaturity in maintaining game concentration on all plays. He has good hands at the ball and made some nice running catches with his glove/arm outstretched. His throwing arm and release are loose and easy and he showed well above average accuracy both in drills and on his game throws, which was impressive.

Munoz’s right handed swing and overall approach, along with the fact he was wearing No. 12 in a blue and red uniform, is very reminiscent to Alfonso Soriano. He has a drifting swing with an early lower half but a loose, extended swing that generates huge power to right centerfield in particular. Unfortunately, there isn’t an offering in a game that a pitcher can throw that Munoz won’t swing at. High fastball, fastball in the dirt, outside fastball, curveball anywhere, Munoz is going to take a full hack. While that’s also something that Soriano does, Munoz has yet to learn how to dominate the fastball that wanders over the middle of the plate.
