Nick Markakis 'confident' heading into 2014


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/3/2014) Orioles outfielder Nick Markakis said his approach hasn't changed as he enters the final guaranteed year of his contract, according to CSNBaltimore.com. The Orioles hold a $17.5 million team option for 2015.

“No, not at all. Same mindset, same approach," he said. "Try to be the same player that I always am, going out there every day and the main thing is to stay healthy and go out there and play 160-plus games."

Markakis had a down year offensively in 2013, despite staying off the disabled list and appearing in 160 games. Though, some blamed his struggles on the health issues he had in 2012 and not being able to follow a normal training routine.

Markakis doesn't deny it was a challenge to get back into shape.

"It’s a lot better than it has been the last two seasons. I’ve been battling injuries. Those are things you can’t avoid. I had three surgeries in nine months. There’s a lot that I was limited to do in those nine months to get back in shape," Markakis said. "I like where I’m at right now. I’m confident. I’m comfortable and ready for it to start."


'Staying healthy' will be key for Nick Markakis in 2014


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

While Markakis made no excuses for his down year in 2013, Orioles manager Buck Showalter said at the winter meetings that "staying healthy" will be key for Markakis having a bounce-back season in 2014, according to MASNsports.com.

"Nick is not one of those guys that broadcasts, as my mom used to say, he enjoys ill health," Showalter said. "You get some people once you know everything is wrong with them, Nick is not one of those guys. Probably half the things we don't even know. Somebody told me the other day that he's about as good as he's felt and looked in a long time. We'll see. I think most of it is going to be health."
