  • 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.

    Margot (hamstring), who isn't starting Wednesday against the Angels, is expected to return to the lineup Friday against the Blue Jays, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
