Margot Activated From Injured List

Tampa Bay got a big piece of their offensive production back Wednesday, activating outfielder Manuel Margot from the 10-day injured list.

Margot suffered a right hamstring strain on May 9 in Anaheim, and after missing the rest of the series against the Angels, he played in the first two games of the series against Toronto at Tropicana Field before going on the injured list.

To make rookm on the active roster for Margot, reliever Dusten Knight, who threw two shutout innings in Tuesday’s win, was optioned to Triple-A Durham.
