Margot went 3-for-4 with a triple, an RBI and a run scored in Wednesday's 4-2 win over the Cardinals.
Margot helped his team defensively too, making an incredible diving catch in center field in the eighth inning. The 23-year-old appears to be finally picking things up at the plate after a rough start to the campaign, collecting hits in six consecutive contests. The youngster's turnaround has come at the right time, as both Franchy Cordero (forearm) and Wil Myers (oblique) appear ready to embark on rehab assignments. Margot is not out of hot water quite yet, as the Padres have several other outfielders making strong cases for playing time, but his recent hot streak will at least put pressure on the club to consider keeping him in a semi-regular role even after their injured outfielders return.
Margot went 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored in Tuesday's win over the Cardinals.
Margot squared up a double -- his 12th of the year -- off reliever Mike Mayers in the seventh, and later came around to score on an RBI groundout. This was Margot's fifth consecutive game with a hit, and he's raised his average to .223 on the season. It's been a rather disappointing year so far for Margot, as he's hit just one home run and has only 16 RBI and 17 runs in 53 games played. The 23-year-old is also 6-for-11 in stolen base attempts.
Margot is not in the lineup for Monday's game against the Cardinals.
Margot will grab a seat on the bench for Monday's series opener after starting the previous five games in center field, hitting .267/.313/.333 across those contests. In his stead, Travis Jankowski will man center field and occupy the leadoff spot.
Margot is not in the lineup for Monday's game against the Braves.
Margot is hitting an impressive .321/.457/.464 with a 7:6 BB:K over his last 10 games, but he'll head to the bench for Monday's series opener against the Braves for what appears to be a routine day off. Travis Jankowski will start in center field and bat leadoff in his stead.
Margot is out of Friday's lineup against the Reds.
He is hitting .211/.302/.289 with zero home runs and two stolen bases over his last 14 games (38 at-bats). Travis Jankowski is starting in center field and leading off. As the Padres continue to get healthy and Margot continues to struggle, his short-term playing time may continue to slip away.
