Nick Markakis - Atlanta Braves OF

We knew this day would come. I’m not sure why it’s so surprising.

On Monday, Nick Markakis made his spring debut with the Atlanta Braves and went 2-for-3 with a double. The veteran outfielder has spent the last four months recovery from neck surgery after inking a four-year deal with ATL.

I’m sure I’ll get used to seeing Markakis in a different uniform, but at least for right now it feels like some kind of weird dream.
