Profile:  Signed by the Brewers just prior to the start of the 2017 Dominican Summer League season, Munoz made his pro debut at the age of 20, suiting up for the DSL Brewers.  In limited playing time, Munoz struggled both with the bat and behind the plate, but he did show an ability to handle young pitchers and appears fairly sound fundamentally with his defense.

2017:  Munoz debut with the Dominican Summer League Brewers in 2017 but played in only 16 games there, playing both catcher and first base.  In 45 at-bats, he managed just eight hits, but did manage to put the bat on the baseball quite often, striking out just ten times.
