Walter on Muntz
"Shane is an extremely talented young man who will catch alongside Logan Harvey and be a power arm out of our bullpen. Offensively he has plus power, and on the mound he has a good three-pitch mix and terrific feel for someone who hasn't pitched a great deal. How much he catches will depend on how he handles the pitchers."
