Braves' Markakis apologizes for comments about the Orioles
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Braves outfielder Nick Markakis apologized for calling out the Orioles organization, according to MASN.

Markakis was recently quoted saying the Orioles organization couldn't be trusted after he felt they were disingenuous about why contract negotiations broke down. "Don't believe a word they say," Markakis said. "It was all because of my neck. They can say what they want to make them look good."

He backpedaled from those comments on Thursday. "What I said wasn't directed at any way to the Orioles organization or ownership. It's just one of those things where I kind of said sarcastically, 'B.S., I wouldn't believe everything you hear. Don't believe them.'" he said. "I just want to put it behind me and I apologize for what I did, but there's a reason why it came out of my mouth." 

The 31-year-old hit .276/.342/.386 over 642 at-bats last year.

Orioles' Adam Jones 'glad' Nick Markakis finally 'said something'
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Former Orioles outfielder Nick Markakis fired the first shot Wednesday, when he vented to USA Today that he was not happy with how the Orioles handled contract negotiations this offseason before he signed a four-year, $44 million contract with the Braves.

"Don't believe a word they say," Markakis said. "It was all because of my neck. They can say what they want to make them look good. It's all B.S. But things work out the way they do for a reason, right?"

Markakis underwent neck surgery in mid-December and his status for opening day is undetermined. However, he is clearly upset with what went on in negotiations and while the Orioles front office has yet to respond, former teammate and friend Adam Jones took his turn Thursday to respond to Markakis' comments.

"I know what's going on, I know the truth," the Orioles' All-Star center fielder said, per MASNsports.com. "It's a move he made for himself. I never fault him for it.

"I talk to him all the time. I talk to him a couple times a week. I talked to him yesterday. It's not my situation, it's his situation with the Orioles. I'm not going to take anbody's side. I wasn't involved with it, so I really don't have an opinion with it."

Markakis, who had surgery to remove a herniated disc and fuse vertabrea, had been playing with the injury for two seasons.

"He never disclosed anything to anybody. He just goes out and plays," Jones said. "...He moved on. He understands the business and he moved on. He completely gets it. No hard feelings.

"I'm glad he said something because he never says anything. I'm glad he said something. He should say something. He has a lot on his mind. Very articulate man, very smart man. He doesn't say much, but when he does people listen, and he's got peoples attention. That's why you all are in front of me now."

Braves' Markakis: 'Don't believe a word [the Orioles] say'
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Braves outfielder Nick Markakis is not happy about the way his former team handled his exit, according to the USA Today

"Don't believe a word they say," Markakis said. The 31-year-old outfielder is referencing his departure from the franchise. He claims that negotiations with the Orioles broke down due to their concerns about his neck injury. There were some claims earlier in the offseaon that Markakis was asking for additional years, and it's possible those stories irked Markakis. 

Shortly after negotiations with Baltimore fell through, Markakis signed a four-year deal with Atlanta. He had surgery to repair a bulging disc in his neck in December. Markakis allegedly dealt with the injury the past two seasons. 

While the Orioles did not mention the neck injury as a reason for passing on Markakis at the time, general manager Dan Duquette told USA Today that the club was "worried about the neck."

Markakis hit .276/.342/.386 over 642 at-bats last year.

Braves' Nick Markakis unsure if he will be ready by opening day
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Braves outfielder Nick Markakis, who underwent fusion surgery to repair a herniated disk in his neck in mid-December, said Wednesday he hopes to be ready by opening day. However, he won't rush back at the expense of aggravating his neck, according to MLB.com.

Markakis will not play during the early portion of the spring training schedule. He was just cleared to run this week and work out extensively, per the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Markakis is in his first year with the Braves after signing a four-year, $44 million contract in December.

Hart: Braves expecting Markakis to be 'full go' in spring training
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Braves outfielder Nick Markakis underwent fusion surgery to repair a herniated disk in his neck Wednesday, per MLB.com. The team expects Markakis to resume baseball activities before the start of spring training. 

"We talked to (Dr.) Steve Wray after the surgery and he said it really went well," Braves president of baseball operations John Hart said. "He said [the procedure] really went well, and he thinks that this guy will be ready to go full go in spring training. The only thing is that there will be a little bit of a disruption for his normal routine getting ready for spring training."

Markakis is expected to be cleared for physical activities within the next month, and the hope is he will be fully cleared within six weeks. Markakis agreed to a four-year, $44 million deal with the Braves in early December.
