  • Yairo Munoz: Released from minor-league deal

    Munoz was released by the Diamondbacks on Monday.

    Munoz was limited to just 12 games this season at Triple-A Reno, but he hit .304/.389/.391 in those contests so this might be a case of him opting out of his minor-league contract. It's unclear whether the 28-year-old utility player might have something else lined up.

  • Diamondbacks' Yairo Munoz: Healthy again at Reno

    Munoz (calf) has gone 5-for-25 with a double, a walk, three RBI and two runs in six games since being reinstated from Triple-A Reno's 7-day injured list May 16.

    Munoz was sidelined for the first six weeks of the minor-league season while recovering from a right calf strain. The 28-year-old saw action in 29 games at the big-league level with the Phillies in 2022, but he may face a more difficult path to earning a call-up to Arizona since he doesn't possess a spot on the Diamondbacks' 40-man roster.

  • Diamondbacks' Yairo Munoz: Sent to minor-league camp

    Munoz (calf) was reassigned to minor-league camp Sunday.

    Munoz was a late arrival to camp due to visa issues and then suffered a right calf strain Friday. It's unclear how long the 28-year-old is expected to be sidelined by the injury, but he should play for Triple-A Reno once healthy.

  • Diamondbacks' Yairo Munoz: Suffers calf injury

    Munoz suffered a strained right calf while swinging at a pitch Friday.

    The Diamondbacks plan to have Munoz undergo imaging to determine the extent of the injury. The utility infielder is having a good camp but is seen as a longshot to earn a roster spot.

  • Diamondbacks' Yairo Munoz: Arrives to camp

    Munoz (not injury related) arrived at camp Sunday and participated in his first workout Monday, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.

    Munoz was delayed by visa issues. While he's only missed a week of camp, a utility player on a minor-league contract can't fall too far behind.

  • Diamondbacks' Yairo Munoz: Visa issues delay arrival

    Munoz is not yet at training camp due to visa issues, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.

    Visa issues are a yearly part of spring training, and Munoz is caught up in it. He's on the fringes of MLB, so any delay would hurt his chances of making the major-league roster.

  • Diamondbacks' Yairo Munoz: Latches on with Diamondbacks

    Munoz signed a minor-league contract with the Diamondbacks on Tuesday.

    He'll be in major-league camp during spring training. Munoz, 28, saw action in 29 games for the Phillies last season, putting up a .654 OPS with three home runs. He'll try to win a utility job in Arizona.

  • Phillies' Yairo Munoz: Cast off 40-man roster

    Munoz was outrighted to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Wednesday.

    Munoz was optioned to Lehigh Valley in late September and will now lose his spot on the 40-man roster. It's possible that he serves as a non-roster invitee this spring.

  • Phillies' Yairo Munoz: Sent back to minors

    Munoz was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Friday.

    Munoz has been in the majors the past two weeks but appeared in only four games and had three at-bats. Overall he has a .211/.250/.404 slash line in 29 big-league games this year.

  • Phillies' Yairo Munoz: Back in big leagues

    Munoz was recalled by the Phillies on Friday, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.

    Munoz lost his job as the Phillies' utility man in late August, but he's needed again with Edmundo Sosa (hamstring) landing on the injured list. Munoz isn't likely to start regularly and has slashed a modest .204/.246/.407 in 25 big-league games this season.

  • Phillies' Yairo Munoz: Sent to minors

    Munoz was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Friday.

    The 27-year-old was called up by Philadelphia earlier this week and will return to the minors with Bryce Harper (thumb) returning from the injured list. Munoz has appeared in 25 games for the Phillies this year and has a .204/.246/.407 slash line with three home runs and seven RBI.

  • Phillies' Yairo Munoz: Gets call-up Tuesday

    Munoz was called up from Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Tuesday. He'll start in right field and bat seventh in Tuesday's game against the Reds.

    Munoz will return to the big leagues after he was sent down Aug. 5. The 27-year-old has produced a .220 average with three homers, seven RBI, six runs and a stolen base over 53 plate appearances in 23 games with the Phillies this season. He'll likely serve as a utility option and see the majority of his starts against left-handed pitching while he's up with Philadelphia.

  • Phillies' Yairo Munoz: Sent to minors

    Munoz was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Friday.

    Munoz had filled a bench role since mid-June, slashing .220/.346/.440 in 23 games. The Phillies' middle-infield depth chart did get thinner after the team released Didi Gregorius on Thursday, but the team also added Edmundo Sosa shortly before the trade deadline. With Jean Segura back from injury and Nick Maton back from the minors, there's no more room for Munoz on the active roster.

  • Phillies' Yairo Munoz: Starts for banged-up Gregorius

    Munoz will start at second base and bat ninth in Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

    Didi Gregorius is sitting out for the series finale due to a sore knee, so Munoz will make a second consecutive start out of the middle infield in his stead. Munoz was productive in Saturday's 7-6 loss, going 2-for-3 with a pair of doubles and two RBI.

  • Phillies' Yairo Munoz: Swipes first bag

    Munoz went 1-for-3 with a stolen base in a 7-0 loss Tuesday in Texas.

    Munoz singled and stole second base in the fifth inning. Tuesday's single was his first hit of the season that didn't leave the park. The 27-year-old has reached base safely in all five of his starts since having his contract selected from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

  • Phillies' Yairo Munoz: Swats homer Saturday

    Munoz went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Saturday's 2-1 win over Washington.

    The game was tied through six innings before Munoz accounted for the first run with his seventh-inning solo shot. The hit was his second of the season, and both have left the yard. Munoz isn't known for his power -- he's hit just 13 homers over 580 career major-league plate appearances and has never hit more than 13 in any minor-league campaign.

  • Phillies' Yairo Munoz: Gets first hit of season

    Munoz went 1-for-4 with a solo home run and an additional run scored in Thursday's 10-1 win over the Nationals.

    Munoz picked up his first hit in eight plate appearances this season with a solo shot during the eighth inning. The 27-year-old posted a strong .319/.345/.454 slash line in 45 games for Triple-A Lehigh Valley before earning a call-up this week, but he doesn't have a path to consistent playing time in the majors. He should see the short side of a platoon with Bryson Stott at second base while Johan Camargo (knee) is on the injured list.

  • Phillies' Yairo Munoz: Moved up from Triple-A

    The Phillies selected Munoz's contract from Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Tuesday, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports. He'll start at second base and bat eighth in the Phillies' game against the Marlins.

    Munoz is expected to fill a utility role while he's up with the Phillies, but as a right-handed hitter, he makes for a natural platoon partner with the lefty-hitting Bryson Stott, who takes a seat Tuesday with southpaw Trevor Rogers on the hill for Miami. Through his 45 games at Lehigh Valley this season, Munoz has hit .319/.345/.454 with five home runs and five stolen bases over 172 plate appearances.

  • Phillies' Yairo Munoz: Sent to Triple-A

    Munoz was assigned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Monday, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.

    Munoz was in camp as a non-roster invitee but failed to win a bench role. He'll be an option when the Phillies need a utility player, though he won't necessarily be the first option, as Ronald Torreyes spent time with the team last year and was also assigned to Lehigh Valley on Monday.

  • Phillies' Yairo Munoz: Inks deal with Phillies

    Munoz signed a minor-league contract with the Phillies on Feb. 1.

    Munoz spent the 2021 campaign in Boston's organization and was at Triple-A Worcester for most of the year. Across 88 minor-league appearances, he slashed .308/.340/.444 with eight homers, 45 runs, 36 RBI and 18 stolen bases. The 27-year-old has played in just 20 major-league games across the last two seasons but should have a chance to carve out a role with Philadelphia this spring.
