Braves in serious talks with Nick Markakis

While the Braves continue to shop outfielders Evan Gattis, Justin Upton and B.J. Upton they have also engaged in contract talks with Nick Markakis.

Markakis and the Braves had a meeting on Monday and according to ESPN’s Buster Onley the two have been working on a deal since. A deal for the former Orioles outfielder “could wind up in the range” of four years and $45 million reports Onley.

The Orioles no longer seem certain to bring back the 31-year-old.

Another team who has shown interest in Markakis is the Giants. He finished last year hitting .276/.342/.386 with 14 home runs and 81 runs scored in 155 games.
