Manuel Margot News
Tampa Bay Rays outfielder Manuel Margot is not in the starting lineup for Friday night's game against the Rangers. It looks to just be a night off for Margot, who is slashing .240/.275/.372 with four home runs, six steals, 31 RBI and 18 runs scored over 51 games. With Margot out, Brett Phillips will get the start and bat ninth against Kyle Gibson and the Rangers.
Tampa Bay Rays outfielder Manuel Margot is not in the starting lineup for Thursday's game against Dean Kremer and the Baltimore Orioles. Brett Phillips is getting the start in right field and batting eighth in the game with Kevin Kiermaier in center field and Austin Meadows in left field. Margot is currently riding a five-game hitting streak that has included a home run, a double, five RBI and three runs. He's only managed four stolen bases over 40 games this year and he's been caught stealing three times. However, his four home runs this year have been good to see after he managed just one home run over 47 games last year. He should be rostered in most deep leagues and most roto and head-to-head categories leagues.
Tampa Bay Rays outfielder Manuel Margot went 2-for-4 with a home run, three RBI and a run scored in a 7-1 win over the Mets on Sunday. It was Margot's fourth homer of the year, as he is now slashing .237/.273/.385 with four home runs, four steals, 22 RBI and 16 runs in 39 games. While the average is on the lower side, Margot still provides enough power and speed to make him a useful outfielder in deep mixed leagues and AL-only formats.
Manuel Margot disappointed during the 2020 regular season with one homer and 11 RBI in 47 games, but he boosted his appeal some more in the playoffs, when he had five homers, 11 RBI and two steals in 19 games. Seeing the power return after he hit one homer during the regular season was highly encouraging. The speed was certainly there, with 12 steals in just 47 games, and the BA improved to .269 from .234 the year before. The Launch Angle dipped significantly last year during the regular season, from 14.2 to 7.5. The Exit Velocity (89.4) and Barrel% (4.1) did not impress, and the xBA was just .255. In 2019, Margot was in the Bottom 5% of the league in xSLG and xWOBA, and he did improve a bit in those regards. All those factors pointed to an approach that just did not seem to work during the regular season, but he was simply a different hitter during the playoffs, and you can be optimistic about some respectable overall production for 2021. There is a good chance that you can get the dozen or so homers you did in 2019, and the speed contributions can be quite helpful. Margot should hit fifth for the Rays, so he just has to show more of his postseason form to maintain a key spot in the lineup. Margot could be a value at an ADP of 260 for a late combination of power and speed.
