by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Margot Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network against the Phillies.

Rays' Manuel Margot: Pair of hits in critical win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Margot went 2-for-2 with a run and was caught stealing on his only attempt in a win over the Mets on Wednesday.

Margot continues to offer steady production down the stretch, with Wednesday's multi-hit effort counting as his fourth over the last 12 games. The 25-year-old outfielder's .271 average and .331 on-base percentage are both career-best figures, and he's already locked in a double-digit steal tally for the fourth straight season as well.

Rays' Manuel Margot: Not starting Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Margot isn't in Tuesday's lineup against the Mets.

Margot started in each of the past two games, going 1-for-7 with one RBI and one strikeout. He'll take a seat as Brett Phillips starts in right field Tuesday.

Rays' Manuel Margot: Takes seat Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Margot isn't in Saturday's lineup against the Orioles.

Margot went hitless with a walk and one strikeout over four plate appearances Friday, and he'll retreat to the bench Saturday. Brett Phillips will take his place in right field.

Rays' Manuel Margot: Out of Game 1 lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Margot is not in the lineup for Game 1 of Thursday's doubleheader against the Orioles, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.

Margot went 0-for-5 with three strikeouts Wednesday and will take a seat for Thursday's matinee. Brett Phillips receives the start in right field, batting eighth.

Rays' Manuel Margot: Plates pair in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Margot went 2-for-3 with a go-ahead two-run double in a win over the Red Sox on Saturday.

Margot's fourth-inning two-bagger brought home Willy Adames and Nate Lowe, snapping a 2-2 tie and capping a three-run frame for the Rays. The 25-year-old outfielder has been swinging a hot bat of late, as Margot is now 5-for-11 with a double, two RBI, one walk, three stolen bases and a run over his last three games.

Rays' Manuel Margot: Active in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Margot went 1-for-3 with a walk and a stolen base in a loss to the Nationals on Tuesday.

Margot was one of only two Rays to reach base multiple times in what was an underwhelming night for Tampa Bay's offense overall. The outfielder has started September in much more subdued fashion than a stellar August during which he slashed .349/.406/.460, as even factoring in Tuesday's tally, he's hitting just .125 (2-for-16) over five games thus far this month.

Rays' Manuel Margot: Returns to bench Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Margot is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Nationals, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.

Though he remains without a clear path to any one spot in the outfield, Margot had started five of the Rays' past six games. Brandon Lowe will move into right field Monday to bump Margot to the bench, but the latter should still be in store for a quasi-everyday role moving forward thanks to his speed (8-for-8 on stolen-base attempts) and improved defense.

Rays' Manuel Margot: Swipes two bags Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Margot went 0-for-2 with a walk and two stolen bases in Sunday's 5-4 win over the Marlins.

The center fielder wasn't able to record a hit, but a pair of stolen bases brought his season total up to eight on the campaign. While he is a threat on the basepaths, Margot has not provided much fantasy value in other areas. The 25-year-old is hitting .265/.333/.367 with just one home run and seven RBI this year.

September 2, 2020 04:40 PM
Rays' Manuel Margot: Sticks in lineup again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Margot will start in center field and will bat leadoff Wednesday against the Yankees.

Starting for the seventh time in eight games, Margot appears to have worked his way into an everyday role, though he doesn't have any spot in the outfield to call his own. Margot's 105 wRC+ on the season isn't spectacular, but it's enough to make him more productive than Yoshi Tsutsugo (96 wRC+), who seems most at risk of losing playing time to the former.

Rays' Manuel Margot: Swipes bag Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Margot went 2-for-3 with a walk and a stolen base in a 2-0 victory over the Marlins on Friday.

Margot was one of two Rays with a multi-hit performance Friday, and he has become one of the team's best hitters. He is slashing .316/.381/.434 this season and has registered a base knock in seven of his last eight games. The 30-year-old figures to remain in the starting lineup until Kevin Kiermaier (back) recovers from his back spasms.

Rays' Manuel Margot: Connects on first homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Margot went 2-for-3 with a walk and a solo home run in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Orioles.

His first homer of the year ended up being the game-winner, as Margot went back-to-back with Hunter Renfroe in the second inning to give Tyler Glasnow and the Tampa bullpen all the offense they would need on the night. Margot has started five of the last seven games, as much due to his continued success at the plate as a southpaw-heavy schedule for the Rays. Factoring in Tuesday's production, the 25-year-old is slashing .304/.368/.420 through 24 contests.

Rays' Manuel Margot: Scores twice in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Margot went 1-for-3 with a single, walk, RBI and two runs scored in the 10-5 win over the Yankees on Thursday.

Margot drove in Yandy Diaz to tie the game at four in the sixth inning. The outfielder has been on a roll at the plate recently, recording 13 hits in his last 23 at-bats.

Rays' Manuel Margot: Scorching stretch continues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Margot went 2-for-2 with a stolen base Saturday against Toronto. The game was suspended due to rain.

Margot knocked a pair of singles in his two at-bats and notched his second stolen base of the season in the fourth inning. The 25-year-old has been swinging a sizzling bat since Aug. 10, going 12-for-16 with five runs and three RBI. His batting average has climbed from .091 to .306 during that stretch.

Rays' Manuel Margot: Torrid tear extends into Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Margot went 4-for-5 with an RBI single and two runs in a win over the Red Sox on Thursday. He went 10-for-14 with three doubles, three RBI, a walk and five runs in the three games he played during the four-game series against Boston.

Margot seemingly turned his season completely around beginning one game after his return from the bereavement list due to the death of his father. The 25-year-old has boosted his average 186 points to .277 with the three-game surge, and his on-base and slugging percentages have seen increases of 166 and 231 points to .333 and .383, respectively. While he'll naturally taper off his current pace at some point, Margot's current numbers are certainly more indicative of his talent than the .091/.167/.152 slash he carried into Boston.

Rays' Manuel Margot: Continues surge Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Margot went 2-for-4 with an RBI double and a run in a win over the Red Sox on Tuesday.

Margot provided a strong follow-up performance to his breakout 4-for-4 effort Monday, and he's now raised his average a whopping 129 points to .220 in the last pair of games. The modest sample of 45 plate appearances naturally drives the dramatic spike, but Margot also simply seems to be enjoying a bit better luck when putting the ball in play -- his BABIP has jumped from .125 to .281 in the last two games, a figure that appeared bound to rise considering the outfielder had been boasting an above-average 25.0 percent line-drive rate coming into Monday's contest.

Rays' Manuel Margot: Four hits in win over Boston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Margot went 4-for-4 with two doubles, two runs scored, an RBI and a stolen base during Monday's 8-7 win over the Red Sox.

Facing the team that originally drafted him before sending him to the Padres in the Craig Kimbrel deal back in 2016, Margot more than doubled his hit total on the season with a scintillating performance. The 25-year-old is still only hitting .189 (7-for-37) through 12 games, however, and with Austin Meadows now back in action and the Rays outfield mostly healthy, Margot will need more nights like this to keep a regular spot in the lineup.

Rays' Manuel Margot: Walks in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Margot (personal) went 0-for-3 with a walk in Sunday's win over the Yankees, his first game after being activated from the bereavement list.

Margot, who was also recently dealing with a back issue, ended up missing a total of five games during his absence. The offseason acquisition was already having trouble at the plate before the pause in his season, and things didn't immediately improve for him Sunday upon his return. With the 0-for-3 showing, Margot's slash line now sits at .091/.167/.152 through 36 plate appearances, although two of his three hits on the season have been doubles. Margot's fantasy managers might also garner some cautious optimism from the fact the 25-year-old's batted-ball metrics imply he may be also be running into some tough luck -- he owns an abysmal .125 BABIP that's eventually going to rise coupled with a solid 25.0 percent line-drive rate and 33.3 percent hard-contact rate.

Rays' Manuel Margot: Activated, in lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rays activated Margot from the COVID-19 injured list Sunday, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports. He'll start in center field in the Rays' series finale with the Yankees and bat seventh, according to Juan Toribio of MLB.com.

Margot will be back in action for Tampa Bay after a week-long hiatus that was first caused by his placement on the bereavement list before he was transferred to the COVID-19 list. The outfielder isn't believed to have ever tested positive for the coronavirus, but he was placed on the list as a precaution after he traveled to the Dominican Republic following the death of his father. Though Margot will be manning center field in place of Kevin Kiermaier, the 25-year-old is expected to work primarily as a fourth outfielder now that Austin Meadows is back after an early-season absence.

Rays' Manuel Margot: Could return Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Margot (personal/back) could be activated from the COVID-19 injured list as soon as Sunday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Margot is still going through COVID-19 protocols after returning from the Dominican Republic following the death of his father. He was also battling back stiffness prior to leaving the team, though it's not clear whether or not the issue remains a problem.
