The closer for the Dukes, Munson has a thick, strong frame at 6-foot-2, 205 pounds. He has two average or better pitches that help him shut down batters at the end of games. His fastball consistently sits 90-93 mph, with good sink and armside run thanks to good extension in his delivery. His second pitch is a power slider that can buckle hitters' knees. He gets hard, late depth on the pitch and uses it almost exclusively at times. Occasionally, the break will get a little big on him and the pitch lacks bite. He came to James Madison as a catcher/righthander, so his arm is relatively fresh. He has shown that he can work multiple-inning outings and hold his velocity. In 24 appearances he has tossed 43 innings, striking out 61 and walking 19. Even though he hasn't made a start in his college career, a couple of scouts didn't rule out the possibility if he can find a third pitch.
