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.
ST. PETERSBURG — The Rays get back to work tonight hoping a day off and a weekend series against the Pirates gets them back on track after a rough stretch, in which they lost nine of their last 12, including five to the MLB-best Yankees. Infielder Jonathan Aranda, who...
The 27-year-old suffered the injury when he collided with the right-field wall during Monday's game against the New York Yankees. Margot is having arguably his best season thus far, slashing .302/.365/.423 through 182 at-bats covering 51 games. The native of the Dominican Republic leads the Rays in batting average and...
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.
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.
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.)
The Tampa Bay Rays officially placed outfielders Manuel Margot (knee) and Kevin Kiermaier (hip) on the 10-day injured list Tuesday.
The Rays are likely to place outfielders Manuel Margot and Kevin Kiermaier on the 10-day injured list, manager Kevin Cash told reporters (including Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times). Both players made early exits from Monday’s loss to the Yankees, and Margot in particular seems to be facing an extended absence.
The Tampa Bay outfield took a big hit Monday night, with Kevin Kiermaier and Manuel Margot going down with injuries. Kiermaier needed a cortisone shot for his hip, and is hoping to be back soon. The news on Margot's knee injury is not good, though, and he is expected to miss ''substantial'' time.

Tampa Bay Rays outfielder Manuel Margot suffered a significant injury while trying to make a game-saving catch against the Yankees. Margot went for what would’ve been a possible game-saving catch on a line drive off the bat of Aaron Hicks. Unfortunately for Margot and the Rays, the ball went just over his glove.

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.
