A former Atlanta Braves prospect made his major league debut a few days ago. It was not with the Braves, however, it was with the division rival Miami Marlins. And it was an odd road to his major league debut.

Roddery Muñoz was originally signed by the Atlanta Braves way back in June 2018. He would reach the major leagues with the Braves on June 6th, 2023 but would never reach the major league mound before being optioned down two days later on June 8th.

Unfortunately, the Braves would designate Muñoz for assignment on July 13th. He would be claimed by the Nationals, where he would remain for the rest of 2023 before being claimed by the Pittsburgh Pirates last offseason. The Pirates would flip him to the Miami Marlins on December 20th and Muñoz would finally get a chance.

Roddery Muñoz showcases his talents

On April 20th, Muñoz made his major league debut. He would throw 5 innings, allowing only 2 hits, 1 walk, 2 runs, and striking out 7 batters. A phenomenal outing for Muñoz that would earn him another start.. excuse me, an option back to Jacksonville the very next day. The Marlins are an interesting team this season.

Either way, congrats to Muñoz on a great debut. Hopefully, he can build upon that and turn it into a solid major league career!

Of course, Muñoz has a twin brother, Rolddy, who is still in the Atlanta Braves organization. Rolddy is currently pitching for High-A Rome. He has seen 6.2 innings of work in 5 games allowing 6 runs. He also has 11 strikeouts with just 2 walks to start the year. Rolddy is an intriguing bullpen prospect within the organization.

Maybe he can ask his brother Roddery for some pointers though after the great debut outing with the Miami Marlins! Hopefully, the Muñoz brothers can make a name for themselves in the coming seasons.
