  • Rays' Manuel Margot: Heads to 60-day IL

    Tampa Bay transferred Margot (knee) from the 10-day injured list to the 60-day injured list Thursday, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.

    The transaction confirms what was already feared when Margot was carted off the field in Monday's loss to the Yankees: that the 27-year-old outfielder is headed for an extended absence. The Rays are still classifying Margot's injury as a right knee sprain, with the tear presumably being of the second- or third-degree variety since he's now set to miss at least two months. While Margot is on the shelf, rookie Josh Lowe should have a clearer runway to a near-everyday role in the Tampa Bay outfield.

  • Rays' Manuel Margot: Could avoid surgery

    Manager Kevin Cash said Friday that the Rays are "trending toward being optimistic" that Margot (knee) won't require surgery, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Margot was carted off the field Monday against the Yankees after crashing into the outfield wall and has been undergoing further testing in recent days. He's dealing with an issue in his patellar tendon rather than his ACL, which has helped to contribute to the Rays' optimism regarding his status. Regardless of whether the 27-year-old requires surgery, he'll be forced to miss at least two months after he was transferred to the 60-day injured list Thursday.

  • Rays' Manuel Margot: Placed on injured list

    Margot (knee) was placed on the injured list Tuesday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    The move is an expected one, as Margot left on a cart Monday against the Yankees after crashing into the outfield wall and is expected to miss significant time. While his expected return date won't become clear until after the results of his MRI are known, the Rays already know he'll miss much more than 10 days. Josh Lowe and Brett Phillips should see expanded roles while Margot remains out.

  • Rays' Manuel Margot: Will miss substantial time

    Margot is expected to miss significant time as a result of a right knee sprain suffered while crashing into the outfield wall during Monday's game against the Yankees, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    The Rays have yet to reveal a timetable for the outfielder's return, however, manager Kevin Cash stated after the contest that Margot's injury "doesn't look good," per Topkin. With Margot likely out for the foreseeable future along with Kevin Kiermaier (hip), look for Josh Lowe and Brett Phillips to see more playing time in the outfield.

  • Rays' Manuel Margot: Leaves on cart

    Margot was carted off the field during Monday's game against the Yankees, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.

    Margot attempted to make a leaping catch at the wall in the top of the ninth, but he was unable to make the grab and ultimately stayed down after the play before being assisted onto the cart. The nature of his injury is unclear at this time, though the training staff appeared to be examining his right leg.

He has been quiet in that span, delivering only two doubles, two RBI and one run scored while hitting .241. It was inevitable that Margot would cool down at the dish, but he still maintains a .322/.383/.455 line across 133 plate appearances on the campaign.

  • Rays' Manuel Margot: One hit in return

  • Rays' Manuel Margot: Reinstated from injured list

  • Rays' Manuel Margot: Out with hamstring strain

    Margot was placed on the 10-day injured list with a right hamstring strain Sunday, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.

    This couldn't have come at a worse time for Margot, who is in the midst of a potential career year. He is hitting .348 with a .348 xBA, three home runs, five steals and career-best marks in BB% (8.8) and K% (12.7). The Rays called up reliever Ralph Garza in a corresponding move, so Harold Ramirez and Vidal Brujan should see an uptick in playing time in the short term.

  • Rays' Manuel Margot: Expected to return to lineup Friday

    Manager Kevin Cash said Margot is feeling better Wednesday and likely could have started against the Angels, but he'll instead be held out for a second consecutive game due to right hamstring discomfort. It's possible Margot will be available off the bench if necessary, and he'll likely be back in the starting nine for Friday's series opener at home against the Blue Jays.

    Margot (hamstring) isn't starting Wednesday against the Angels, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.

    The 27-year-old will be out of the lineup for a second straight game as he continues to deal with right hamstring discomfort that stems from an awkward slide into second base Monday.
