Max Muncy
Name: Maxwell Steven Muncy
Born: Aug 25, 1990 in Keller, TX
College: Baylor
High School: Keller (Texas) HS
Ht.: 6'0" / Wt.: 218 lbs
Bats: L / Throws: R
Drafted in the 5th round (169th overall) by the Oakland Athletics in 2012 (signed for $240,000)
Muncy had one of the best bats among Texas high schoolers in 2009, when the Indians took a flier on him in the 49th round, and three years later he has one of the best among college players in this draft. With a short lefthanded stroke and a disciplined approach, he barrels balls consistently. He has proven he can hit with wood, too, turning in a pair of solid summers in the Cape Cod League. Muncy has a strong build at 6-foot-1 and 205 pounds and shows pop to his pull side, though scouts hesitate to project him as having more than average home run power. That could be a problem if he's limited to first base, where he has started all but one game in his three years at Baylor. Muncy has decent speed and athleticism, enough to consider trying him at another position. The Bears gave him a look at second base during fall ball, and he gave catching a shot in high school.
