      Braves' Nick Markakis: Has game-winning RBI single in Friday victory

      Markakis went 2-for-4 with two RBI in Friday's 4-2 victory over the Marlins. The veteran outfielder was the hero on the night, as his eighth-inning RBI single plated Gordon Beckham and Freddie Freeman to snap a 2-2 tie. Markakis' multi-hit effort broke a five-game hitless streak, a dubious feat in what has been a forgettable month. The .302 average that the 32-year-old finished April with is now a distant memory, as he's slashsed just .159/.283/.207 in 82 May at-bats. Markakis' season average is down to .238, and without any long-ball contributions to speak of, he's not bringing a great deal to the table fantasy-wise at this point.

      Braves' Nick Markakis: Out of lineup Thursday

      Markakis is out of the starting lineup for Thursday's series finale against the Brewers, Kevin McAlpin of the Braves Radio Network reports. Markakis will get his first day off since May 4 following Wednesday's 13-inning marathon. Although he'll likely re-enter the lineup for Friday's matchup with the Marlins, Jeff Francoeur will take over in right field to replace him Thursday.

      Braves' Nick Markakis: Belts first home run in winning effort

      Markakis was 1-for-4 with a two-run home run as the Braves dropped Philadelphia on Friday night. Certainly not your prototypical clean-up hitter, Markakis hit out of the four-hole in this one and smacked his first home run of the season in the Braves' win. Markakis has been mired in a horrendous slump during the month of May, so perhaps the new spot in the batting order will break him out of the malaise. If he maintains that spot, it should significantly boost his opportunity to contribute counting stats, albeit the Braves' lackluster offense will still limit his chances.

      Braves' Nick Markakis: Slumping in May

      Markakis is hitting .174 with no extra-base hits, two RBI and four runs in 46 at-bats this month. The Braves outfielder is in a bad slump. Since going 3-for-5 on May 8, he is 2-for-23 (.087) with one RBI, one run and seven strikeouts over the last six games. His last extra-base hit came on April 28.

      Braves' Nick Markakis: Three hits in Sunday's loss

      Markakis went 3-for-5 with a walk and a run scored in Sunday's 11-inning loss to the Diamondbacks. Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez is keeping Markakis in the leadoff spot for now, despite the return of Ender Inciarte from the DL. That's likely bad news for both players' fantasy value, as Markakis will have fewer RBI opportunities and Inciarte fewer opportunities to steal bases, but it's hard to argue against keeping Markakis' .395 OBP at the top of the order for the offensively-starved team.

      Braves' Nick Markakis: Notches pair of hits from leadoff spot in Friday loss

      Markakis (personal) went 2-for-4 with a run scored in Friday's 7-2 loss to the Diamondbacks. The veteran outfielder was back in the lineup and leading off after missing Wednesday's matchup against the Mets, and was able to reach base safely for the seventh straight game. While Markakis' .290/.395/.400 line in 2016 is certainly solid, his mysterious power drought has now extended into a second season. After nine straight double-digit homer campaigns to start his career, the 32-year-old now has just four homers over his last 712 at-bats, including none this season.

      Braves' Nick Markakis: Back in lineup Friday

      Markakis (personal) is back in the lineup for Friday's matchup with the Diamondbacks. Markakis was away from the team for Wednesday's game against the Mets due to an undisclosed personal matter, but he appears to have resolved that. He should be able to slot into his regular spot as the leadoff hitter and right fielder for the Braves going forward.

      Braves' Nick Markakis: Unavailable Wednesday

      Markakis will not be available for Wednesday's game against the Mets, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports. Markakis is away from the team to tend to an undisclosed personal matter. The Braves are yet to announce a lineup for Wednesday's game, so at this point it's unclear who will get the nod in right field in Markakis' stead. Consider the outfielder day-to-day in advance of Friday's series-opener against Arizona. The Braves have an off day Thursday.

      Braves' Nick Markakis: Leads Braves to 5-3 victory over Red Sox

      Markakis went 4-for-5 with three RBI in Thursday's 5-3 win against Boston. Markakis had three singles and a double to help the Braves end an eight-game losing streak. Now in his second year with the team, Markakis leads the club in batting average (.305), RBI (19), OBP (.412) and hits (25). He has been a rare bright spot for the worst team in baseball through the first month of the season.
