Dominican professional baseball personality Manuel Margot plays for the Tampa Bay Rays of Major League Baseball as a baseball center fielder.
The Padres traded Margot and prospect Logan Driscoll to the Tampa Bay Rays in return for Emilio Pagán.
Prior to being exchanged to the Rays, Margot had just played 8 innings, not in the focus field. Be that as it may, the protective ability of Kevin Kiermaier made Margot play more innings in the left and right fields.
Margot finished the season batting .269 with one homer and 12 taken bases. The Rays finished the season with the best record in the American League.
In the Wild Card Series against the Toronto Blue Jays, Margot went three for seven with one homer and three RBIs. In the Division Series against the New York Yankees, Margot went one for nine with a two-run homer.
The Rays would beat the Yankees in five games. In-game 1 of the American League Championship Series against the Houston Astros, Margot hit a three-run grand slam in the primary inning.
In the subsequent inning, Margot flipped over the divider in the right field to record an out on a foul ball. In spite of this game being played in his previous home field (Petco Park), Margot was ignorant that the drop over this divider was roughly six feet.
In-game 6 of the ALCS, Margot hit two homers recording three RBIs as the Rays lost by three. The Rays would proceed to beat the Astros in seven games and progressed to the World Series.
