CF,DH,LF,RF - TB - IL10
The Rays placed Manuel Margot on the 10-day IL on Sunday with a right hamstring strain. The team recalled Ralph Garza Jr. from Triple-A Durham to take Margot's spot on the roster.
Margot had been trying to play through his hamstring discomfort by DHing in the first two games of the series, but he obviously wasn't feeling 100%. The fact that he managed to play at all after feeling discomfort is encouraging that this won't be a long-term injury, but for a player like Margot who relies on his legs, it makes sense to give him as much time as he needs. Harold Ramirez will likely see an uptick in playing time with Margot on the shelf.
Manuel Margot, who left Monday's game after feeling discomfort in his hamstring, is out of the lineup for the Rays' Tuesday game against the Angels.
There was almost no chance Margot would be in the lineup on Tuesday, even though he was lobbying to stay in the game on Monday. The good news for managers is that he hasn't yet been placed on the IL, so there is indeed hope that his injury isn't serious. Margot is on an absolute tear, winning AL Player of the Week honors last week and stealing two bases before departing on Monday. He should be universally rostered and started whenever he plays.
Manuel Margot was removed from Monday's game against the Angels with an undisclosed injury.
Margot was taken out after stealing second base, and appeared to stumble a bit as he slid into the bag. Replays showed him grabbing the back of his right leg, which is about the last thing any fantasy manager wants to see from the speedy and red-hot Margot. The Rays should update his status after the game but managers should hope it's just a cramp.
