ATLANTA (AP) New Braves outfielder Nick Markakis has undergone surgery to repair a herniated disk in his neck.
The fusion operation was performed Wednesday in Atlanta by Dr. Steven Wray.

The Atlanta Braves are coming off a 79-win season and finished a distant 17 games behind the Washington Nationals in the National League East.

Just 12 days after new right fielder Nick Markakis finalized his four-year, $44 million contract with the Atlanta Braves, he'll undergo surgery on his neck.

As you understand and have presumably criticized, Nick Markakis has signed with the Braves, for four guaranteed years and a reported $44 million in guaranteed money.

When people hear the name “Nick Markakis”...
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. He didn’t find an answer, and besides durability, I don’t really have one either, but […]
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. A few weeks ago, it seemed like the […]
