Orioles | Nick Markakis works out

Baltimore Orioles OF Nick Markakis (neck) hit off a tee, threw and ran Friday, March 22. Markakis will need to play in many minor league games in order to be ready by opening day April 1, and he'll do soft toss Saturday, March 23, and could taking batting practice Sunday, March 24. Markakis is pain-free and has full range of motion in his neck and upper back. He's played in only four spring games.

Fantasy Tip: Markakis has been pretty healthy in his career until last year when he broke bones in his hand and thumb. There is reason to believe he'll be ready by the start of the season. When healthy, he's pretty darn consistent.
