2016 Stohs Prospect Handbook Profile: Ramona, California, native Muren went to Cal State-Northridge for three season. He never posted an ERA under 4.69 and never had a K/9 rate over 5.80. But the Twins saw enough potential in him to select him with their 12th round pick in 2012. What they saw was a remarkable ability to get ground balls, and that is something that has continued through his minor league career. In his time in Low A, he posted a 2.87 ERA, and that dropped to 2.27 in High-A. In 2014, he had a ground ball rate of 2.8 groundouts per fly out. Muren has been in the low-90s in previous years with a moving fastball. In 2015, he was often in the mid-90s, even touching 97 mph frequently. He has a good cutter as well. His changeup remains a work-in-progress. His brother Drew has played outfield in pro ball since 2011.
