Braves' Nick Markakis: Could see time at first base
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Brian Snitker said Markakis could serve as the backup first baseman in 2017, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

With normal utility man Sean Rodriguez sidelined for the season, the Braves are in need of a backup first baseman for Freddie Freeman. Markakis does have some experience at first base, playing 47.0 innings across parts of three different seasons there. It likely won't be often, but it seems Snitker seems set on keeping Markakis' bat in the lineup when Freeman needs a rest.

Braves' Nick Markakis: Will begin season in starting role
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Markakis is expected to keep his spot in the starting lineup for 2017.

The 33-year-old won't be a part of the rebuilding Braves future, but his ability to get on base and pop the occasional homer will still have a significant role on the club to begin the season. His 89 RBI in 2016 were his highest total since 2009, and with a young and improving roster around him, Markakis could continue to provide steady fantasy value.

Braves' Nick Markakis: Has two-RBI day Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Markakis went 2-for-4 with an RBI single and two runs driven in overall in Saturday's 7-3 victory over the Nationals.

The hot-hitting veteran plated Ender Inciarte in the first with a single to left center and then brought home Adonis Garcia when he grounded into a double play in the third. Markakis has now hit safely in nine straight games and has already racked up 13 RBI in 15 September games, with 11 of those coming in the last eight contests.

Braves' Nick Markakis: Hammers 11th home run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Markakis went 3-for-5 with a home run and two RBI in Monday's victory over the Marlins.

Markakis had just two home runs entering July, but has hit nine since. The outfielder's .270 batting average would be a career-low, but the 32-year-old has experienced a power revival this season. Markakis' 81 RBI is the most he's posted in a season since 2009 with Baltimore.

Braves' Nick Markakis: Doubles twice, stretches RBI streak to four games
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Markakis went 3-for-5 with two doubles, a walk, two RBI and three runs against the Diamondbacks on Wednesday.

He's now driven in at least one run in four consecutive games and eight of the last nine, representing a terrific run of productivity for a guy who doesn't have a lot of power. Markakis is hitting only .273, but he's operating at a shiny .312 clip when he comes up with men on base, which is why he has a stunning 72 RBI to go with just nine homers. The veteran right fielder has already knocked in more runs this year than in any of the past four seasons, and when all's said and done, he'll almost certainly end up with his highest total since 2009.
