  • Twins' Manuel Margot: Traded to Minnesota

    The Twins acquired Margot, infielder Rayne Doncon and cash from the Dodgers on Monday in exchange for Noah Miller, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.

    It's the second time Margot has been traded this winter, as he went from the Rays to the Dodgers in December as part of the Tyler Glasnow deal. The 29-year-old Margot offers protection in center field for Byron Buxton and should draw a decent number of starts especially against left-handed pitching.

  • Dodgers' Manuel Margot: Joins Dodgers

    Margot was traded from the Rays to the Dodgers along with Tyler Glasnow in exchange for Ryan Pepiot and Jonny DeLuca on Thursday, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.

    Margot has settled into being a slightly below league-average hitter, though he more than makes up for that with his defense. That will likely be enough for him to remain a regular in the Dodgers' outfield, though he'll likely split time in a corner spot with the likes of Chris Taylor and Jason Heyward. Margot is under contract for 2024 with a mutual option in 2025.

  • Rays' Manuel Margot: Homers in regular-season finale

    Margot went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in Sunday's win over the Blue Jays.

    Margot's home run came in the fourth inning off Wes Parsons. It was his first home run in 43 games since June 15. The 28-year-old finished with at least a hit in nine of his last 10 games and finishes the regular season slashing .264/.310/.376 with four homers, 38 RBI, 39 runs, nine steals and an 18:55 BB:K in 336 plate appearances. He'll hold down a depth role in the outfield for the Rays' upcoming playoff run.

  • Rays' Manuel Margot: Fours hits Tuesday

    Margot went 4-for-4 with two RBI and two runs scored in Tuesday's victory over Boston.

    After a relatively quiet season, Margot's been hot down the stretch, going 11-for-22 (.500) with just two strikeouts in his last six games. Still, the 28-year-old outfielder hasn't offered much in the way of fantasy production -- his last homer came June 15 while he's stolen only a pair of bases in that 40-game span. Overall, Margot's slashing .264/.310/.369 with three homers, nine steals, 38 runs scored and 36 RBI across 319 plate appearances this season. He should continue to see regular playing time in the Rays' outfield to close out the year, with Randy Arozarena (quadriceps) day-to-day and both Luke Raley (neck) and Jose Siri (hand) on the IL.

  • Rays' Manuel Margot: Knocks in game-winning run

    Margot went 2-for-4 with one double, two RBI and one steal in Thursday's 5-4 victory over the Angels.

    Margot, who has five hits over his last two games, faced Angels closer Carlos Estevez with the bases loaded in the bottom of the ninth and brought home Yandy Diaz with a walk-off bloop single to right. The Rays center fielder also managed to swipe his ninth base and crack his 20th double earlier in the game. Margot has produced a .256/.305/.367 slash line over 91 games.

  • Rays' Manuel Margot: Returns from injured list

    Margot (elbow) was activated from the 10-day injured list ahead of Thursday's game against the Orioles, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Margot is back in the mix for the Rays leading into their big four-game series at Baltimore exactly one month after undergoing surgery to remove loose bodies from his right elbow. He went 5-for-6 with five RBI in two rehab games with Triple-A Durham but returns to a rough .249/.300/.354 season slash line in 280 major-league plate appearances.

  • Rays' Manuel Margot: Rehab set for Tuesday

    Margot (elbow) is expected to begin a rehab assignment Tuesday, Ryan Bass of Bally Sports Sun reports.

    Margot has been out since undergoing a procedure to remove loose bodies in his right elbow in mid-August. He's been going through pre-game workouts recently and hit in the batting cage Saturday, and he's nearly ready for game action. He's expected to play Tuesday and then rest Wednesday, at which point the Rays will decide his next steps.

  • Rays' Manuel Margot: Undergoes elbow surgery

    Margot underwent surgery Wednesday to remove loose bodies from his right elbow, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    The procedure went as planned, per Rays manager Kevin Cash, and the expectation remains that Margot could be ready to return to action in 3-to-4 weeks. He's posted a .249/.300/.354 batting line with three homers and eight steals through 85 games (280 plate appearances) this season.

  • Rays' Manuel Margot: Heading for elbow procedure

    Margot was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday due to loose bodies in his right elbow and will undergo surgery Wednesday to remove them, Tricia Whitaker of Bally Sports Sun reports.

    It's unclear when the injury first surfaced for Margot, but it likely explains his recent downtick in playing time, as he started just twice in Tampa Bay's previous eight contests. The procedure carries an expected recovery timeline of 3-to-4 weeks, so the veteran outfielder could return sometime in early-to-mid September. The left-handed bats of Josh Lowe and Luke Raley could see more run against southpaws while Margot is sidelined.

  • Rays' Manuel Margot: On bench for third straight

    Margot remains out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Cardinals.

    Margot has an active six-game hitting streak, but he finds himself on the bench for a third straight contest while the Rays face off against another right-handed starting pitcher (Dakota Hudson). So long as all of Randy Arozarena, Jose Siri, Luke Raley and Josh Lowe are healthy, Margot looks like he'll remain the Rays' No. 4 outfielder and continue to see most of his starts against left-handed pitching.

  • Rays' Manuel Margot: Returns to bench Sunday

    Margot is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against Atlanta, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Margot had started in three of the Rays' last four games, but he went 0-for-12 during that stretch and is now slashing a lowly .248/.300/.358 over 233 plate appearances on the season. He appears to be no better than fourth on the depth chart in the outfield, with all of Randy Arozarena, Josh Lowe and Jose Siri slotting ahead of him in the pecking order for playing time.

  • Rays' Manuel Margot: Stays hot Wednesday

    Margot went 3-for-4 with three doubles, one RBI and three runs scored in Wednesday's 6-3 win over the Athletics.

    Margot has recorded multiple hits in each of his last three starts and notched multiple extra-base knocks for the first time this season Wednesday. He also scored all three times he reached base. The veteran has been a steady part of Tampa Bay's lineup all season, and he's picked things up offensively of late, slashing .317/.369/.450 with 10 RBI over his past 19 games (60 plate appearances).
