  • 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: 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: 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: 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.
