Nick Markakis went 2-for-3 with a homer and two walks in the Orioles' 6-5 defeat of the Rangers on Wednesday.

Markakis has hit in nine straight games, scoring runs in seven of them. It doesn't look like he'll ever again be a 20-homer threat, but he's batting .300, he's getting a ton of at-bats at the top of the Orioles lineup and he's attempting some steals again after being a non-factor there the last two years, making him a fair fourth or fifth outfielder in mixed leagues.
Jun 5 - 12:55 AM

Nick Markakis went 3-for-6 with an RBI and a run scored in Tuesday's win over the Rangers.

Markakis' three singles raised his batting average to .304. He's got an eight-game hitting streak in which he's 13-for-35 (.371) with four doubles and six runs scored, pushing his season batting line up to .304/.358/.397.

Nick Markakis went 3-for-4 in Thursday's win over the Royals.

All three hits were singles, boosting the average up to .302. While the high average is nice, the Orioles would also like to see a little more power out of their corner outfielder, as Markakis is currently sitting on a meager .389 slugging percentage. He put up a career-worst .356 SLG last season.
May 15 - 11:18 PM

Nick Markakis went 2-for-5 with a solo home run as the Orioles defeated the Pirates in 10 innings on Thursday.

Markakis took Pirates reliever Bryan Morris out to right field for his second home run of the season. He had homered in the first half of Thursday's double-header as well. The power display was nice to see as he entered the day with a .360 slugging percentage, but it's now up to .417.

Nick Markakis will make his first start of the season at first base on Saturday.

With Chris Davis sidelined, the O's are forced to get creative with their lineup as they don't have a true backup at the position on the roster. Markakis has played just three major league games at first base in his career, all during the 2011 season.
Apr 26 - 3:45 PM

Nick Markakis had a nice night at the plate, going 2-for-3 with a walk in Friday’s loss to the Royals.

Apr 25 - 10:42 PM

Nick Markakis went 2-for-5 with an RBI, a walk, and two runs scored against the Red Sox on Friday.

Markakis now has back-to-back multi-hit games, pulling his batting average up to .273 for the year. He has only drawn two walks through 15 games, which isn't ideal as a leadoff man. But history suggests that he should get his fair share of free passes as the season moves along.

Nick Markakis (neck) is in the Orioles' starting lineup for Monday's season-opener against the Red Sox.

Hardy, CF Adam Jones, 1B Chris Davis, LF Nelson Cruz, C Matt Wieters, DH Delmon Young, 3B Ryan Flaherty, 2B Jonathan Schoop. Chris Tillman is pitching.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter is undecided whether he'll put Nick Markakis (neck) in the lineup Opening Day.

Markakis was scratched from the Orioles' Grapefruit League lineup Saturday with a stiff neck. He felt better Sunday but still isn't feeling 100 percent. Showalter has made out two lineup cards -- one with Markakis in it and one without him in it -- and will wait a while longer before making a decision on the outfielder's status.
