Braves' Nick Markakis: Returns to Atlanta
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Markakis signed a one-year, $4 million contract with the Braves on Tuesday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports. The deal includes a $6 million club option (or $2 million buyout) for 2020.

Markakis will return to Atlanta after enjoying a career-year with the Braves in 2018. The 35-year-old played in all 162 games last season, hitting .297/.366/.440 with 14 homers and 93 RBI while earning his first All-Star selection. Look for Markakis to reclaim his role as the team's starting left fielder, pushing Adam Duvall to a fourth outfielder role.

Ravens' John Brown: Considering staying in Baltimore
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown has expressed a desire to stay in Baltimore, but he also wants to play in an offense that takes more shots downfield, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports.

Signed to a one-year, $5 million contract last offseason, Brown was on pace for his second 1,000-yard campaign before the Ravens switched from Joe Flacco to Lamar Jackson at quarterback. The 28-year-old wideout was limited to eight catches on 30 targets over the final seven weeks, torpedoing his season-long marks for yards per target (7.4) and catch rate (43.3 percent). Brown nonetheless seems to have restored some of his value, potentially setting up a multi-year deal on the open market. Another season with Baltimore likely would represent a concession to playing in a run-heavy offense.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roach signed a minor-league contract with the White Sox on Monday.

The deal includes an invitation to spring training, though Roach seems more likely to open the season in the minors. The 29-year-old finished out the 2018 campaign in Japan after spending the first half of the season with the White Sox's Triple-A affiliate. While Roach posted a solid 2.65 ERA in 95 innings with Triple-A Charlotte, he stuggled to a 5.01 ERA, 1.55 WHIP and 19:15 K:BB across 50.1 innings with the Orix Buffaloes.
