Braves' Nick Markakis: Headed for bigger role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Markakis could see significant action this season on the strong side of a platoon with Adam Duvall, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

When Atlanta signed Marcell Ozuna over the winter, it seemed as though Markakis would be pushed to the bench. With NL teams now deploying a designated hitter for 2020, however, it opens the door for Markakis and Duvall to platoon in either left field or DH, wherever Ozuna isn't. Austin Riley could also factor into the LF/DH mix, but Markakis' steady numbers and veteran approach at the plate since joining Atlanta in 2015 make the 36-year-old the most likely player to benefit from the additional spot in the batting order.

Braves' Nick Markakis: Settling into reserve role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Markakis has slashed .235/.222/.353 through 17 plate appearances this spring.

The veteran outfielder heads into 2020 in a reserve role following the offseason addition of Marcell Ozuna to the Atlanta roster. Markakis could be better suited to the bench at this stage of his career anyway -- he played in only 116 games last year due to injury, only the second time since his rookie 2006 campaign that he played fewer than 155.

Braves' Nick Markakis: Re-signs with Atlanta
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Markakis signed a one-year, $4 million contract with the Braves on Monday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

The 35-year-old missed just over a month in 2019 with a fractured wrist, but still recorded a .285/.356/.420 slash line with nine home runs and 62 RBI. Markakis showed that he is still able to get on base consistently last season, but with a slew of young outfielders nearing the majors, he will likely only be in line for part-time work this season.

Braves' Nick Markakis: Pair of doubles Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Markakis went 2-for-4 with two doubles, two RBI, a walk and a run scored in Tuesday's loss to the Royals.

Markakis put the Braves on the board in the fourth inning with a run-scoring double before picking up another RBI in the fifth inning with a walk -- his first free pass since returning from the injured list earlier in the month. The outfielder added another double in the eighth inning, eventually coming around to score on an error by third baseman Hunter Dozier. Markakis is now slashing .324/.333/.412 with four runs and five RBI in eight games since returning from a fractured wrist.

Braves' Nick Markakis: Sitting Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Markakis is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Giants.

Not every Braves regular is out Saturday, but several are after the team clinched its second straight division title with a win Friday. Ronald Acuna will slide over to right field to cover for Markakis as Billy Hamilton mans center.

Braves' Nick Markakis: Out of Thursday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Markakis is not in Thursday's lineup against the Phillies.

He is 9-for-22 with zero home runs in five games since returning from injury. Adam Duvall and Rafael Ortega will start in the outfield corners.

Braves' Nick Markakis: Hot out of gates since return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Markakis went 1-for-4 in a 7-0 loss to the Nationals on Sunday.

Markakis mustered one of only four hits on the day for the Braves, wrapping up a mostly productive weekend after he was reinstated from the injured list Friday. The 35-year-old immediately reclaimed an everyday role in left field in his return from the fractured left wrist, starting all three games versus Washington and going 7-for-13 with a double, three RBI and two runs.

Braves' Nick Markakis: Returns from injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Markakis (wrist) was activated off the 10-day injured list Friday.

Markakis went down in late July with a fractured left wrist but is ready to rejoin the Braves for the final couple weeks of the regular season. The 35-year-old had a .284/.358/.429 slash line with nine home runs and 55 RBI through 104 games prior to suffering the injury. He'll start in left field and bat fifth in his return to the lineup.

Braves' Nick Markakis: Could return over weekend
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Markakis (wrist) is scheduled to take live batting practice Wednesday, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

If everything goes off without a hitch during Wednesday's live bullpen session -- his first since suffering a fractured wrist near the end of July -- Markakis could be cleared to rejoin the Braves ahead of Friday's series opener against the Nationals. Prior to landing on the shelf, the veteran outfielder compiled a .284/.358/.429 slash line with nine home runs and 55 RBI in 104 games.

Braves' Nick Markakis: Nearing live at-bats
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Markakis (wrist) will hit in a simulated game next week, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

Markakis has been out with a fractured wrist since late July but appears to be making good progress. If all goes well, he could return to action next weekend.

Braves' Nick Markakis: Starts playing catch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Markakis (wrist) has started throwing, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

Markakis fractured his left wrist (his throwing arm) in late July, so the fact he's resumed throwing is a major step in his recovery. It was reported last week that the 35-year-old was ahead of schedule, and a return in mid-September still appears on the table.

Braves' Nick Markakis: Ahead of schedule in recovery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Markakis is ahead of schedule in his recovery from a broken wrist, Gabe Burns of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Further details regarding Markakis' status were not disclosed, but this report would seem to indicate he will be able to return to action in mid-September as anticipated, and possibly earlier than that. With fellow outfielder Ender Inciarte (hamstring) also sidelined, expect the duo of Matt Joyce and Charlie Culberson to continue platooning in right field until Markakis returns.

Braves' Nick Markakis: Still wearing cast
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Markakis continues to sport a cast to protect his fractured left wrist but remains optimistic that he'll be able to return from the 10-day injured list in mid-September, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports. "That goal would be awesome, to be [back] mid-September. It could be sooner; it could be later. It's hard to tell. It's all about how I heal up. All I can say is we're staying on top of it and trying to heal up as quick as I can."

Markakis fractured his left wrist when he was hit by a pitch July 26 in Philadelphia but elected not to undergo surgery, which would have necessitated a longer recovery timetable. As it stands, Markakis' injury still requires around 6-to-8 weeks to heal, so he's likely around a month away from rejoining Atlanta even if he hits no snags in his rehab. The cast has prevented Markakis from resuming baseball activities, but he's still been traveling and working out with the team to ensure he'll be ready to ramp things up when he receives the green light from doctors to do so.

Braves' Nick Markakis: Could return in September
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Markakis (fractured wrist) won't require surgery and could return at some point in September, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

Markakis was placed on the 10-day injured list Saturday after getting hit by a pitch on the wrist in Friday's game. While it's good to hear he could return this season, the best-case scenario of a return sometime in the season's final month makes him a drop candidate in many fantasy formats. Austin Riley and Ender Inciarte figure to see a slight bump in playing time, but Adam Duvall, who was promoted in a corresponding move, could also get starts, particularly against left-handed pitching.

Braves' Nick Markakis: To IL with fractured wrist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Markakis was placed on the 10-day injured list Saturday with a fractured left wrist.

He was hit on the wrist by a pitch in Friday's game against the Phillies and got the worst possible news after tests revealed a fracture. The team has not provided a return timetable, but it's possible Markakis will be sidelined for the rest of the regular season. Ender Inciarte and Austin Riley will now likely take on everyday roles.

July 26, 2019 10:36 PM
Braves' Nick Markakis: May be headed to IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Markakis was removed from Friday's game against the Phillies after being hit by a pitch on his wrist, 680 The Fan Atlanta reports.

Markakis remained in the game immediately after being drilled, but he ultimately came out in the top of the sixth inning. The injury "doesn't look good," stated skipper Brian Snitker. "We're not optimistic." The extent of the issue is not yet known, but the Braves are expected to receive an update Saturday, per Kelsey Wingert of Fox Sports South.

Braves' Nick Markakis: Day off Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Markakis is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Brewers.

Markakis sits for the first time in the month of July. Matt Joyce will make a rare start in right field in Markakis' stead.

Braves' Nick Markakis: Three hits in Sunday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Markakis went 3-for-4 with an RBI and a stolen base in Sunday's win over the Marlins.

The steal was the first of the year for the 35-year-old, but the multi-hit effort was par for the course -- Markakis has six of them in his last 10 games, pushing his slash line on the season to .286/.358/.441.

June 29, 2019 10:28 PM
Braves' Nick Markakis: Smacks eighth homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Markakis went 1-for-2 with a home run in a 5-4 win over the Mets on Saturday.

Entering the game in the sixth inning, Markakis homered off Seth Lugo in the seventh to tie the score 4-4. It was the 35-year-old's second homer in the last four games, and it lifted his slash line to .279/.358/.432. He now has eight homers and 48 RBI in 294 at-bats.

June 29, 2019 03:00 PM
Braves' Nick Markakis: Held out Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Markakis is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Mets.

Markakis owns just a .567 OPS against lefties this season and is 3-for-18 (.167) in his career against Mets starter Steven Matz, so he will not start Saturday with Matz on the bump for the Mets. Johan Camargo will get the start in right field in Markakis' place.
