Latest Update Nick Markakis hits seventh home run Sun Jun, 29, 04:31 AM
Is a natural hitter with a great batting eye, patience, and solid power. A doubles and RBI machine, he's very consistent and durable as a hitter. Boasts an elite throwing arm from right field.
Flaws: : While highly consistent at the plate, he'll make unexpected miscues on the basepaths and in the outfield. Is a little inconsistent when it comes to home-run power.
Markakis was out to prove that his dwindling power numbers were primed for a rebound but once again, it vanished for an 18-game period for the 30-year old outfielder. He's batting .296 on the year with seven home runs and 29 RBI, but his .103 ISO is like a loud, anti-power smack in the face. It's going to be empty batting average help for the most part, but occasionally he'll kick in a night like this.Analyst: Howard Bender
Markakis has been on fire as of late and raised his season average to .305. He's been rock solid at the top of the Orioles lineup and should continue to be a valuable asset going forward. Analyst: David Kerr
Markakis has been on fire of late, going 12-for-29 (.414 BA) with three home runs, eight RBI and five runs scored over his last seven games. He has taken a liking to he new role as the team's leadoff hitter and should remain a fixture in fantasy lineups as he continues to manage a solid .312 average while still showing signs of power (6 HR).

Markakis has now gone 9-for-25 (.360 BA) with two home runs, five RBI and five runs scored over his last six games. Following Thursday's performance, Markakis is now slashing .306/.363/.420 with five homers and 23 RBI through 245 at-bats, as he appears to have settled in nicely atop the Orioles lineup. As long as he continues to be patient at the plate support an above average on-base percentage, his fantasy value will remain at an elevated level. Analyst: Matthew Beck
