Daniel Muno tweeted that he received a call and was invited to the Mets Big League spring training camp.  A great accomplishment for a young man working hard to achieve his goals of playing in the majors.

Muno, who has been with the organization since he was signed in 2011, played last season with the B-Mets and batted .249/.384/.379, with 86 runs, 27 doubles, two triples, nine home runs, 67 RBI, 15 stolen bases and 92 walks in 561 plate appearances.

When I asked Muno in a interview back in September, what was he expecting for 2014, he responded:

“In 2014, I am just going to keep trying to do what I have been doing. Also just going to keep trying to help my team win whatever team I may be on.”

Well not only will Muno have an opportunity to lead his team to victory during the 2014 season, he will also get an opportunity to show the Mets fans during spring training a glimpse of what is to come. Who knows he may even turn some heads. Congrats to Daniel Muno, hard work does pay off.

    Danny is a dark horse, but this makes it clear management saw what I saw. He started out poorly last year. But if you double his last 75 games in AA to project out to 150 games, and he’d have (as a lead off hitter) scored 118 runs, driven in 84, and had a .406 on base %. And decent power projections. Now think of Tejada’s #’s….Danny is now a 2B, but has played SS…Tejada is surely a better fielding SS, but Danny’s production #’s in AA for June onward were top caliber and could signal far better offensive output than Ruben

    And Danny produced like that when Puello was out for a lot of those games due to suspension, when Dykstra faded very badly, and with Vaughn hitting poorly after his return from his elbow injury – all to say Danny was hitting that well with little protection, something david Wright can fully appreciate doing.

    Also, recently, writers were recently commenting favorably about LJ Mazzilli’s Bklyn debut, where he had a .329 on base %. Danny debuted in Bklyn 2 years prior and had an OB% of an amazing .466, a huge differential.

    So I am excited to see what Danny does in 2014.

    Looking forward to seeing all this kids hard work pay off. Danny plays the game right, hard nosed winner. Good luck Danny in 2014!
