Video: Mets Minor League Report – Danny Muno

The Mets’ 8th round pick in 2011, Muno hit .249/.384/.379 with 27 doubles and nine homers in 127 games in Binghamton in 2013 at age 24. He was suspended for 50 games for a violation of the MLB PED program in 2012. The most distinguishing characteristic of his offensive game is his plate eye. In 2013, he walked in 16.4% of his plate appearances and struck out in just 17.3%. That’s great. He’s maximizing what tools he has, but I’m skeptical that he has the tools to be a big league regular.

An amateur shortstop, Muno has played mostly second base at advanced-A and AA where he played second in 115 of his 127 games. Generally, teams like a backup middle infielder who can handle shortstop. I’m not sure that Muno fits that bill anymore.

At 25 to start the 2014 season, Muno will likely head to Las Vegas. If he hits he will play, but his profile is really nothing but questions.
