Orioles decline option on Nick Markakis
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(10/30/14) The Orioles have declined an option on outfielder Nick Markakis.
Markakis was owed $17.5 million next season, but the team opted to buy out his contract for $2 million. The 30-year-old Markakis will head into the offseason a free-agent. He hit .276/.342/.386 over 642 at-bats last year.
Option on Orioles OF Nick Markakis could force him out
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(10/15/14) The perception that the $17.5 million option on outfielder Nick Markakis is too steep will likely play out with him leaving the Orioles for free agency if the two sides can't get together on a long-term contract, according to CBSSports.com MLB Insider Jon Heyman.
Markakis, who struggled from mid-August forward, finished the regular season with a stat line of .276/.346/.386. He hit 14 home runs and drove in 50 with 81 runs scored. He is known to be a favorite of owner Peter Angelos, so a return to Baltimore at a lower salary remains a possibility.

Sore shoulder keeps Nick Markakis sidelined
|by Al Melchior | Data Analyst|
|(9/21/14) Nick Markakis was not in the Orioles' starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Red Sox. He has not played since Tuesday, when he was hit in the shoulder by an Aaron Loup pitch.
According to MLB.com, X-rays showed that Markakis did not sustain any structural damage to his shoulder, but he continues to deal with soreness in the area where he was hit.
|Nick Markakis has played in at least 160 games in four of the last five years. He has a .292 career average, and has hit double-digit home runs in each of his eight seasons. But Markakis posted career-worst numbers in doubles (24), home runs (10), OPS (.685), steals (one), and average (.271) last season. He hit ground balls at a rate higher than any time in his career, and his rate of fly balls that eventually left the park was a career low. If Markakis can correct this -- if he can start hitting fly balls, and do so at a more powerful rate -- there is hope for a turnaround. His average is still decent and he has 30-double potential. Still, the muted home run rate is cause for concern and his ceiling there is really about 15. A better Head-to-Head league option, Markakis can be taken in the reserve rounds of those drafts, and as a cheap fourth outfielder in Roto leagues.
