Danny Muno broke Fresno State’s all-time walk record on April 17, 2010 against Louisiana Tech. Muno has recorded over 200 career walks in four seasons. The senior broke the career record for runs scored (209) on March 1 against Cal Poly. On May 21, he broke the school record for games played in a career at 249 games. Muno has a chance to break the following career records this season: at-bats, hits and doubles. - http://grfx.cstv.com/photos/schools/fres/sports/m-basebl/auto_pdf/weekly-release.pdf
Muno is one of those guys who has been around forever. He was Fresno State’s starting shortstop as a freshman when the Bulldogs ran to the CWS National Championship in 2008. He earned WAC Freshman of the Year honors that season. Now a senior, he could end his career with more games than anyone who’s ever worn an FSU uniform. Muno batted .329 with seven home runs, 33 RBIs, 10 stolen bases, and scored a team-best 68 runs in 2010. He earned first team All-WAC honors at second base in 2009, but settled for second team last year with Hawaii’s Kolten Wong taking top honors - http://collegebaseball360.com/tag/dan-paolini

Future utility type but there is a non-zero chance he could get beyond that. Hit .346/.471/.471 with 14 steals, 46/27 BB/K in 205 AB.
7-14-11: - http://www.amazinavenue.com/2011/7/11/2270752/mets-minors-road-report-binghamton-7-9-brooklyn-7-10 - I really liked the Muno pick at the time, but he’s not quite as polished as you might think for a guy with his profile. He looked a little overmatched early, getting frozen on a backdoor slider, and then watching a 93 mph fastball on the outside corner for his 2 Ks. He did draw two walks, but it’s tough to tell how much credit to give Muno, and how much to give to the quite wild Tigers pitching staff. He did a nice job in the ninth going back up the box for a single, though it was against a right-handed sidearmer. He also proceeded to get caught stealing by a good five feet, to erase himself as the tying run. Speed is not really his calling card, though it was a good throw from the Tigers catcher. Defensively, he is just not a short stop. He simply doesn’t have the arm for the position. The ball just sort of floats out of his hand with none of the zing you see from a Jose Reyes. Frankly, his arm’s not even as good as Eckstein’s. He bounced a couple throws, one dug out by Frenzel, one leading to an error, but even just watching him in infield warm-ups, you can see the arm is lacking. He’s a 2B in the end, not that we didn’t know that. The bigger issue is he might be stuck there, and he really needs to be able to play multiple positions to have a big league career, as he profiles more like a Reggie Willits type.
7-22-11: - Muno is off to a great professional start in Brooklyn. He currently is ranked 7th in the league in both batting (.329) and OPS (.953). The 22-year old has basically done all of this against right handed pitchers (.359) while batting only .167 against lefties.
8-4-11: - Stock Up – Danny Muno – Muno went into the Thursday Cyclone game with a league leading .447 OBP. He’s been a pleasant surprise this season both with a bat and on the field. Not quite the prospect, but knows how to get on base.
8-8-11: - http://www.brooklyncyclones.com/news/topstories/index.html?article_id=1204 - DANNY MUNO - Selected in the eighth round of the 2011 MLB Draft, Muno has shown Brooklyn fans what made him such a winner in college. Despite missing more than a week with a broken finger earlier in the season, Muno still ranks third in batting (.338) and leads the league in on-base percentage (.450).
9-13-11: - http://www.minorleagueball.com/2011/9/13/2423288/2011-minor-league-ball-interesting-short-season-hitting-prospects - Dan Muno, SS, Mets: Eight-round pick out of Fresno State this year destroyed the New York-Penn League, hitting .355/.466/.514 with 43 walks and 23 doubles in 220 at-bats for Brooklyn. At age 22 he doesn't have the long-term projection of other guys on the list, but he's very polished and could reach the majors rapidly as a utility type.
