Latest Update Markakis homers, drives in two during Orioles win Mon Aug, 25, 11:44 PM
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.
Flaws: : While highly consistent at the plate, he lacks ideal home-run power for a corner outfielder. He also doesn't steal a lot of bases, so he's not an ideal table-setter either.
Markakis has been a useful -- albeit boring -- fantasy contributor in 2014. He has a well balanced .285/.348/.402 triple-slash with 12 home runs and 4 stolen bases. It's possible he eclipses the 15 home run mark for the first time since 2011. His teammates are rubbing off on him...Analyst: Spencer Silva
Markakis is now riding a 10-game hit streak, the likes that have helped him raise his batting average 15 points here in the month of August. The home run ws just his 11th of the season, but if you've followed his statistical trends over the last few years you would know not to expect much from him in the power department. But the fact that he's returned to hitting closer to .300 and has a .361 on-base percentage, there's no reason to believe that he can't contribute in other ways.Analyst: Howard Bender
Markakis has been a bright spot for the Orioles, especially since he's been there leadoff hitter for almost the entire season. The home runs and RBIs will always be lacking with him, but he'll get on-base and score runs, which makes him a solid fourth or fifth outfielder in deep fantasy leagues.Analyst: Mark Kaplan
Markakis is now 10-for-31 (.323 BA) with three home runs, five RBI and four runs scored over his last seven games as he continues to thrive atop the Orioles lineup. Although he does not standout in one given category, Markakis won't hurt his fantasy owners anywhere as he is slashing .287/.349/.404 with 10 home runs, 39 RBI and 54 runs scored through 463 at-bats. He remains a solid complimentary outfielders in all applicable formats. Analyst: Matthew Beck
