Rays’ Manuel Margot to rehab ‘significant’ patellar tendon strain

ST. PETERSBURG — The latest Manuel Margot update for the Rays might be their most promising one yet. Manager Kevin Cash said Friday that Margot has a “significant” patellar tendon strain, but it doesn’t appear he’ll need surgery and they’re hopeful for a late-season return. Margot, who crashed into the rightfield wall Monday, was placed on the 60-day injured list, making Aug. 20 the earliest date the Rays could activate him.

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: Heads to 60-day IL

Tampa Bay transferred Margot (knee) from the 10-day injured list to the 60-day IL on 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 will be 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 place Manuel Margot, Kevin Kiermaier on IL; six trade targets to help injury-stricken outfield

The Tampa Bay Rays entered Tuesday with the third-most days lost to injury this season, according to Spotrac. That figure will continue to grow, and at a greater rate than it did coming into the week, as the Rays placed outfielders Manuel Margot (sprained knee) and Kevin Kiermaier (hip inflammation) on the IL prior to their Tuesday contest against the New York Yankees. Margot's injury, which required him to be carted off the field on Monday, is considered the more serious of the two. (In corresponding moves, the Rays promoted outfielder Luke Raley and infielder Jonathan Aranda to the majors.)

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.
