The 29-year-old came over from the Oakland Athletics as a minor league player and instantly became a force in the Dodgers lineup from the left side of the plate. He joined the Dodgers as a major league player in 2018, and is now a force along with Cody Bellinger, Corey Seager, and Justin Turner, as the team added another former MVP to that group in Mookie Betts from the Boston Red Sox.
Since joining the Dodgers two years ago, Muncy has 70 home runs and 177 RBIs over 278 games, all while batting a decent .256. He is expected to spend most of his 2020 season at first base with Gavin Lux in the infield mix, but the slugger can also play second and third base, which he has for the Dodgers in recent years. Before agreeing on this deal, it was expected for the two sides to come to a financial agreement for this season, and Muncy to potentially test the free agent waters next winter. Instead, he will stay in Dodger blue to kick off the new decade, which the Dodgers are hoping will include World Series gold sooner rather than later.
