2019 Fantasy Outlook
Munoz, the best relief-pitching prospect in baseball, can touch 103 mph with his fastball and may reach the big leagues this year as a 20-year-old. A dominant showing as the youngest player in the Arizona Fall League in 2017 served as his coming out party. Regularly touching triple digits as an 18-year-old can have consequences, and he was held back in extended spring training at the outset of 2018 with a tender elbow. After a PRP injection, Munoz was ready to make his season debut with short-season Tri-City in mid-June. He struck out nine in 5.2 hitless innings, leading to him getting promoted over Low-A and High-A to the Texas League, where he was the league's youngest player. His lower half is strong, but he is still adding good weight to his upper body. His mid-80s slider needs refinement, but he already commands an 80-grade fastball, so his secondary offering just needs to be OK for him to develop into one of the best closers in baseball.

Shut down for season
PSan Diego Padres
Rest
September 18, 2019
Munoz won't pitch again this season, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
ANALYSIS
Munoz pitched 58.2 total innings between the minor and major leagues in 2019, more than doubling last year's workload. The fireballing rookie held a 1.69 ERA following his 20th big-league outing Sept. 7 but appeared fatigued over his final two appearances, giving up six runs in 1.2 innings to inflate his season ERA to 3.91. Nonetheless, Munoz turned a lot of heads in his first stint in the majors, averaging 99.9 mph on his fastball and posting an impressive 11.7 K/9 while frequently pitching in high-leverage situations. The 20-year-old is likely to be a key part of the Padres' bullpen next season.

This section compares his stats with all relief pitcher seasons from the previous three seasons (minimum 30 innings)*. The bar represents the player's percentile rank. For example, if the bar is halfway across, then the player falls into the 50th percentile for that stat and it would be considered average.

* Exit Velocity, Barrels/BBE %, Balls Hit 95+ MPH %, and Spin Rate are benchmarked against 2019 data (min 30 IP). See here for more exit velocity/barrels stats plus an explanation of current limitations with that data set.
