Dodgers place Max Muncy (oblique) on 10-day injured list

LOS ANGELES ― Between his power and patience on offense, and his ability to shift effortlessly between first and second base on defense, Max Muncy has been the Dodgers’ most valuable player this season. Until recently, he was equal parts healthy and productive. Muncy missed one game entirely and was relegated to the bench in two others, after he injured his ankle on June 4 in Atlanta. On Friday, Muncy strained his right oblique muscle early in a 12-1 victory over the Texas Rangers. On Saturday, ...
