NICK MARKAKIS RUMORS

Report: Royals have interest in Nick Markakis

The Kansas City Royals are on the fringes of the playoff race, but they are still looking at potential upgrades. One of them is reportedly Braves outfielder Nick Markakis, whom Kansas City is looking at, according to Mark Bowman of MLB.com. Markakis fits in well with how the Royals build.

Braves continue to baffle, sign Nick Markakis for four years

Braves cause head scratching with Nick Markakis signing

Over the last few days, rumors circulated that the Braves were pushing hard to sign Nick Markakis, so this morning, Mike Petriello wrote up a piece on Markakis’ value, questioning just MLB teams see in him that we don’t see.

What Are We Missing About Nick Markakis?

There’s not a contract agreement yet or even an indication that one is close, but one thing seems clear about this particular baseball offseason: There might not be a larger gap between our perception and the conversations we’re hearing in the real world than in those regarding Nick Markakis.

Devin asks… What do you think about signing Nick Markakis for the outfield? I know we’re not signing anyone big, but he shouldn’t cost that much. Joe D. replies… First of all, I’m not entirely sure that Markakis will hit free agency.
