Los Angeles Dodgers first baseman Max Muncy said he expects to be fully recovered from an elbow injury and in the starting lineup on opening day — whenever that is and at whatever position.

Muncy sustained a left elbow injury in a collision at first base with Milwaukee's Jace Peterson on Oct. 3, the final day of the regular season, and missed the entire postseason. Although the team didn't initially confirm the severity of the injury, Muncy said in November that it was a torn ulnar collateral ligament that didn't require Tommy John surgery.

In a recent guest appearance on AM 570 LA Sports radio in Los Angeles, Muncy said he was on track to play on opening day on March 31. The start of the season has been delayed because of the ongoing MLB lockout.
