All-Star Dodgers infielder Max Muncy seriously injured his left elbow during the last game of the 2021 MLB regular season on a collision at first base.
At the time, the word from the team was that Muncy had dislocated his elbow and that there was a chance he could play in the World Series, if they advanced that far. We never got the chance to find out any further injury details as the Dodgers were eliminated by the Braves in the NLCS. Today, Max Muncy revealed that he has a torn UCL.
Muncy, 31, was a force in the Dodgers' offense last year as the club through several major injuries and was still one of the better groups in baseball. He hit .249/.368/.527 (138 OPS+) with 26 doubles, two triples, 36 homers, 94 RBI, 95 runs and 4.9 WAR. He finished 10th in the NL in MVP voting.
