Player Outlook
Manuel Margot's .264/.310/.376 slash line from last season looks similar to his 2022 line, but it resulted in a 12-point drop in his wRC+ (to a below-average 93) since offense was up league-wide. The veteran outfielder hit just four home runs with 38 RBI, 39 runs and nine stolen bases in 99 games, and his minus-three DRS was the worst mark of his career. Margot missed a month due to elbow surgery, and it's the second straight year he had a sizable absence due to injury. The defense seems likely to rebound since he's only just entering his age-29 campaign, but the upside is limited given his underwhelming power and speed production over the past two seasons (eight homers and 16 steals). At best he's likely to provide a decent average and reach double-digit steals while working in a reserve role. He was traded to the Dodgers from the Rays and then to the Twins in the offseason. he'll look to find a right-handed platoon role and be a back up to oft-injured Byron Buxton in center field.

  • Twins' Manuel Margot: Excels out of leadoff spot

    Margot went 3-for-5 with a three-run home run and two additional runs in Saturday's 10-2 rout of the Athletics. Margot played a key part in Minnesota's seven-run second inning by belting a three-run blast off Oakland starter JP Sears. He added two additional base knocks to finish with his second three-hit game of the season. Margot had been struggling coming into Saturday, going 2-for-20 with no extra-base hits or RBI over his previous seven games.

  • Twins' Manuel Margot: On base twice batting leadoff

    Margot batted in the leadoff spot and went 1-for-4 with a walk in Thursday's win over Kansas City. After a slow start to the season (.468 OPS through May 17), Margot is finally showing some signs of progress at the plate. He's 8-for-23 from May 18 through Thursday with two walks. He could get more at-bats as a righty platoon bat in left field as a result.

  • Twins' Manuel Margot: Slow start to season continues

    Margot started in center field and went 0-for-3 in Thursday's loss to the Yankees. He's hitting just .169 with a .460 OPS this season. The Twins traded for Margot in the offseason thinking he'd be insurance in center field if Bryon Buxton was injured and could fill a right-handed platoon role. However, Margot has struggled to provide any offense and made just his second start this month in center field despite Buxton missing the last two weeks with a knee injury. Margot may continue to languish on the bench until he gets going at the plate.

  • Twins' Manuel Margot: Hits first homer

    Margot went 2-for-3 with a home run, two RBI and one run scored in Monday's loss against the Dodgers. Margot was a surprise leadoff hitter against a lefty starter after he hit ninth in his other start against a southpaw, but he began the game with a hit and later hit a home run. He may not play against tough righties Tyler Glasnow and Bobby Miller on Tuesday and Wednesday, but Margot could lead off again Thursday against lefty Tarik Skubal.

  • Twins' Manuel Margot: Will sit vs. righty

    Margot is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against Kansas City. Margot got the start at designated hitter in the season opener Thursday, going 1-for-2 while scoring a run. With the Royals starting right-hander Seth Lugo on Saturday, Margot will head back to the bench.

  • Twins' Manuel Margot: In lineup at designated hitter

    Margot (hand) is will start at designated hitter and bat ninth in Thursday's season opener versus the Royals. The Twins acquired Margot to play against left-handed pitching, so it's no surprise he's in the starting nine against southpaw Cole Ragans. It's more surprising that Margot is serving as a DH and not playing the outfield, but that may just be a matter of caution after he exited Tuesday's exhibition game after being hit on the hand by a pitch.

  • Twins' Manuel Margot: Diagnosed with hand contusion

    Margot has been diagnosed with a left hand contusion and is expected to be fine for Opening Day, Bobby Nightengale of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. Margot had to leave Tuesday's exhibition finale versus Atlanta when he was hit by a pitch, but he's managed to avoid a serious injury. The 29-year-old is expected to be an active fourth outfielder for the Twins this season.

  • Twins' Manuel Margot: Leaves game after HBP

    Margot was removed from Tuesday's exhibition game versus Atlanta when he was hit on the left hand by a pitch, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports. Margot was struck by a Charlie Morton pitch in the fourth inning and exited after a brief conversation with the Twins' trainer. The club could just be exercising caution here, but Margot might be sent for testing as a precautionary measure.

  • Twins' Manuel Margot: Traded to Minnesota

    The Twins acquired Margot, infielder Rayne Doncon and cash from the Dodgers on Monday in exchange for Noah Miller, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports. It's the second time Margot has been traded this winter, as he went from the Rays to the Dodgers in December as part of the Tyler Glasnow deal. The 29-year-old Margot offers protection in center field for Byron Buxton and should draw a decent number of starts especially against left-handed pitching.

  • Dodgers' Manuel Margot: Joins Dodgers

    Margot was traded from the Rays to the Dodgers along with Tyler Glasnow in exchange for Ryan Pepiot and Jonny DeLuca on Thursday, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports. Margot has settled into being a slightly below league-average hitter, though he more than makes up for that with his defense. That will likely be enough for him to remain a regular in the Dodgers' outfield, though he'll likely split time in a corner spot with the likes of Chris Taylor and Jason Heyward. Margot is under contract for 2024 with a mutual option in 2025.

  • Rays' Manuel Margot: Homers in regular-season finale

    Margot went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in Sunday's win over the Blue Jays. Margot's home run came in the fourth inning off Wes Parsons. It was his first home run in 43 games since June 15. The 28-year-old finished with at least a hit in nine of his last 10 games and finishes the regular season slashing .264/.310/.376 with four homers, 38 RBI, 39 runs, nine steals and an 18:55 BB:K in 336 plate appearances. He'll hold down a depth role in the outfield for the Rays' upcoming playoff run.

  • Rays' Manuel Margot: Fours hits Tuesday

    Margot went 4-for-4 with two RBI and two runs scored in Tuesday's victory over Boston. After a relatively quiet season, Margot's been hot down the stretch, going 11-for-22 (.500) with just two strikeouts in his last six games. Still, the 28-year-old outfielder hasn't offered much in the way of fantasy production -- his last homer came June 15 while he's stolen only a pair of bases in that 40-game span. Overall, Margot's slashing .264/.310/.369 with three homers, nine steals, 38 runs scored and 36 RBI across 319 plate appearances this season. He should continue to see regular playing time in the Rays' outfield to close out the year, with Randy Arozarena (quadriceps) day-to-day and both Luke Raley (neck) and Jose Siri (hand) on the IL.

  • Rays' Manuel Margot: Knocks in game-winning run

    Margot went 2-for-4 with one double, two RBI and one steal in Thursday's 5-4 victory over the Angels. Margot, who has five hits over his last two games, faced Angels closer Carlos Estevez with the bases loaded in the bottom of the ninth and brought home Yandy Diaz with a walk-off bloop single to right. The Rays center fielder also managed to swipe his ninth base and crack his 20th double earlier in the game. Margot has produced a .256/.305/.367 slash line over 91 games.

  • Rays' Manuel Margot: Returns from injured list

    Margot (elbow) was activated from the 10-day injured list ahead of Thursday's game against the Orioles, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Margot is back in the mix for the Rays leading into their big four-game series at Baltimore exactly one month after undergoing surgery to remove loose bodies from his right elbow. He went 5-for-6 with five RBI in two rehab games with Triple-A Durham but returns to a rough .249/.300/.354 season slash line in 280 major-league plate appearances.

  • Rays' Manuel Margot: Rehab set for Tuesday

    Margot (elbow) is expected to begin a rehab assignment Tuesday, Ryan Bass of Bally Sports Sun reports. Margot has been out since undergoing a procedure to remove loose bodies in his right elbow in mid-August. He's been going through pre-game workouts recently and hit in the batting cage Saturday, and he's nearly ready for game action. He's expected to play Tuesday and then rest Wednesday, at which point the Rays will decide his next steps.

  • Rays' Manuel Margot: Undergoes elbow surgery

    Margot underwent surgery Wednesday to remove loose bodies from his right elbow, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. The procedure went as planned, per Rays manager Kevin Cash, and the expectation remains that Margot could be ready to return to action in 3-to-4 weeks. He's posted a .249/.300/.354 batting line with three homers and eight steals through 85 games (280 plate appearances) this season.

  • Rays' Manuel Margot: Heading for elbow procedure

    Margot was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday due to loose bodies in his right elbow and will undergo surgery Wednesday to remove them, Tricia Whitaker of Bally Sports Sun reports. It's unclear when the injury first surfaced for Margot, but it likely explains his recent downtick in playing time, as he started just twice in Tampa Bay's previous eight contests. The procedure carries an expected recovery timeline of 3-to-4 weeks, so the veteran outfielder could return sometime in early-to-mid September. The left-handed bats of Josh Lowe and Luke Raley could see more run against southpaws while Margot is sidelined.

  • Rays' Manuel Margot: On bench for third straight

    Margot remains out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Cardinals. Margot has an active six-game hitting streak, but he finds himself on the bench for a third straight contest while the Rays face off against another right-handed starting pitcher (Dakota Hudson). So long as all of Randy Arozarena, Jose Siri, Luke Raley and Josh Lowe are healthy, Margot looks like he'll remain the Rays' No. 4 outfielder and continue to see most of his starts against left-handed pitching.

  • Rays' Manuel Margot: Returns to bench Sunday

    Margot is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against Atlanta, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Margot had started in three of the Rays' last four games, but he went 0-for-12 during that stretch and is now slashing a lowly .248/.300/.358 over 233 plate appearances on the season. He appears to be no better than fourth on the depth chart in the outfield, with all of Randy Arozarena, Josh Lowe and Jose Siri slotting ahead of him in the pecking order for playing time.

  • Rays' Manuel Margot: Stays hot Wednesday

    Margot went 3-for-4 with three doubles, one RBI and three runs scored in Wednesday's 6-3 win over the Athletics. Margot has recorded multiple hits in each of his last three starts and notched multiple extra-base knocks for the first time this season Wednesday. He also scored all three times he reached base. The veteran has been a steady part of Tampa Bay's lineup all season, and he's picked things up offensively of late, slashing .317/.369/.450 with 10 RBI over his past 19 games (60 plate appearances).
