Orioles' Chris Davis to see time in right field during spring training
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Orioles coach Buck Showalter said first baseman Chris Davis will see some playing time in right field during the spring training season, according to The Baltimore Sun

This likely has more to do with cross-training Davis just in case he's needed to step in at right field during the regular season. Davis hasn't played in right field the previous two years but did play the position some in 2012.

Davis has made 39 starts in right field during his MLB career.

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.
