BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2014 Due to publishing agreements, the 2014 player comments and team essays are only available in the Baseball Prospectus 2014 book (available in hardcopy, e-book, and Kindle).
2013 Now at the peak of the aging curve, Markakis really is what he is at this point: a one-time potential superstar who topped out as a complementary piece. His core ratios have remained steady for years, aside from a spike in HR/FB from 8.8 percent in 2009-11 to 12.6 percent in 2012. That appears to be a mirage, however, as Markakis isn’t squaring the ball up any differently and is driving it the same modest distance as usual. Expect him to settle back down in 2013. Scouts have always liked his defense more than the numbers do, but at some point, the numbers have to count for something, and he isn’t getting any younger. Thumb surgery sidelined Markakis at the end of the season, but he said he would have been able to play had the O’s made the World Series, so there should be no lingering issues.
2012 Every year, PECOTA projects better for Markakis than he delivers, and at 29, his chances of delivering on his one-time superstar potential are dwindling. Coveted as both a hitter and a pitcher in the first round of the 2003 amateur draft, he has certainly been worth his selection as an outfielder, but he grades out as a merely above average player; just once has he posted a WARP above 3.0 (2008). Like teammate Adam Jones, Markakis has all five tools, but not to the extent Jones does. He had compensated for his four-year home run decline by cracking over 45 doubles each year from 2008-2010, but he managed just 31 this past season without much of an increase in big flies. Markakis isn't the star player the O's once hoped to build around. Sad face.
2011 Markakis joined Hall of Famers Tris Speaker and Ducky Medwick as the only players to hit 40-plus doubles in four straight seasons, which is nice, but his home-run total dropped for the third straight season, which isn’t. Markakis has increasingly stopped pulling the ball; instead, the vast majority of his swings are directed toward center field. This is a tough way to make a living as a power hitter, given that straightaway center is the deepest part of every ballpark. When Markakis does pull the ball, he still hits home runs, but he has either misplaced or lost the ability to do that on a regular basis. He remains a valuable hitter and fielder, but unless he stops trying to hit ‘em where they have acres of grass, his run production won't return to its levels of 2007-2008.
2010 Signed to a six-year deal in January, Markakis went out and had his worst season yet as an Oriole. A big part of that was a near-total collapse in September (.236/.311/.330), when he could be forgiven for just wanting to get the season over with and get on with watching Ravens games, like everyone else in Baltimore. More troubling, though, are the drops in steals and defense (although Markakis still led AL right fielders with 13 assists), which suggest a drop in speed. He did hit 40 doubles for the third straight year, and the list of players who had three 40-double seasons by their age-25 seasons is very impressive: Joe Medwick, Albert Pujols, Lou Gehrig, Joe Cronin, Stan Musial, Carl Yastrzemski, Don Mattingly, Dick Bartell, Hal Trosky, and Red Kress, along with David Wright and Hanley Ramirez.
2009 Markakis continued his streak of raising his EqA and EqR in every season of his pro career to date, starting from his Aberdeen debut in 2003; extend that into 2009 and you're looking at a serious MVP candidate. There's really nothing about him to dislike—he had too many caught stealings, if you want to get nitpicky—and he's just now entering his prime. Hitting 40 doubles in consecutive years by his age-24 season puts him on a list that's littered with Hall of Famers: Musial, Yastrzemski, Williams. Medwick, Gehrig, Greenberg. On the downside, it also includes Ben Grieve.
2008 As a rookie, Markakis had a .213 EqA in the first half of 2006, but has posted a .303 mark ever since despite a relatively slow start in 2007 as well (.272 EqA). Just 24, he's already hitting for average and increasing power and doesn't seem overly troubled by lefty pitching. Last year he also showed off some stolen base skills we'd never seen before and established himself as one of the best defensive right fielders in the league. Markakis has consistently matched and even exceeded our more optimistic forecasts for him. He's the stud to build the next good Oriole team around.
2007 In another year, Markakis` debut performance might have won the Rookie of the Year award, but with all of the young pitching that emerged in the American League in 2006, he had to settle for a distant sixth despite a .311/.364/.532 second-half surge. Of course, most of that power came in a 14-game stretch in August in which he hit 9 of his season total of 16 home runs. The rest of the year he didn`t show much pop at all, particularly against lefties (one homer in 119 AB). He may still be catching up from development time lost to being a pitcher-slash-outfielder, and it is certainly true that he has had better-than-average improvement each year, but how far he goes depends on how much sustainable power he develops. The Orioles have nothing to lose by finding out who the real Markakis is.
2006 Scouts have always been high on Markakis, and it`s easy to understand why: He`s got a sweet swing, a cannon of an arm, and decent speed. Until busting out at Bowie last year, though, his production hadn`t matched the hype. He has been an extremely prolific doubles hitter so far, averaging 45 per 600 at-bats where an average player would only hit 31, so the power potential is there. He`s still on schedule for a late September cameo, but to stick, those doubles will have to presage some home runs.
2005 The Orioles' decision to look at him as a hitter first after he'd starred as a two-way player in high school is looking good so far. Markakis' season ended prematurely when he went to Athens to play for the Greek Olympic team (and be their best player), although the Orioles weren't too happy that he wound up on the mound a couple of times. The Orioles decided to be extra-cautious and shut him down once the Olympics were over. His power improved nicely from 2003 to 2004, a trend that's expected to continue.

BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2013-05-29 18:30:00 (link to chat)Hey Mike, The basics: keeper league, keep 8 players forever. I tanked last year for picks and now have a great team. Got a trade offer: my Prince Fielder for his Adrian Gonzalez and David Wright. I would be replacing Nick Markakis in my utility slot. Additionally, I could ship off David Wright because I have Adrian Beltre currently at 3rd to get another player. Should I take the deal or keep Prince knowing that I have the best keeper there and will probably be fine without the other two? Thanks!
(Joe from Seattle)
Hey Joe.

I like Prince a lot but think that this is a terrific trade for you. You didn't mention what format you play, but Wright isn't that much worse than Fielder and you're getting Gonzalez instead of Markakis which I view as an upgrade. Make the deal. (Mike Gianella)
2013-02-15 12:00:00 (link to chat)I have Carlos Quentin, Nick Markakis, Carlos Gomez, and Brandon Moss for 5 dollars each in a deep $325 32 roster spots league. Given several ?s such as health and building off breakout seasons, do you have any particular feelings on any of these players to produce to the level they have once or recently shown?
(Sal from Staten island)
Either way, those are great bargains in a deep league. Quentin is in the "best shape of his life" if you're a believer in that...I'd gladly take all 4 of those guys in a deep league like that. (Jason Collette)
2012-11-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)Could you set us straight, please, about some slow right-handed sluggers: 1) Why are the Orioles pursuing Jonny Gomes, unless Nolan Reimold is not expected to fully recover? 2) Why would anyone want a 27 year old .700 OPS (last two seasons) player known for his miscues - Delmon Young, unless they are duped into thinking he's still going to be good based on a good week in the ALCS?
(John Carter from Toronto)
Good afternoon, John Carter. The Orioles-Gomes connection surfaced yesterday, and I touched on it in today's Rumor Roundup. A designated hitter platoon certainly isn't ideal, but Gomes has a track record of mashing left-handed pitching, so there's room for him to share that job with, say, Chris Davis, even if Reimold and Nick Markakis are healthy and playing full-time in the outfield corners.

As for Delmon, I think most teams will be smart enough to seek other options, so a rough landing might be in store. (Daniel Rathman)
2012-10-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is an upside projection/comparison of the Marlin's Christian Yelich someone like Nick Markakis?
(Paul from DC)
Yeah, I think Yelich profiles as a .285+ hitter with 10-15 HR and a ton of doubles. It's also not out of the question that he develops into a .300 hitter. (Jason Parks)
2012-02-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)I've wanted the following PFM enhancement for years: A way to compare players per game. In other words, players are ranked by including predicted playing time, which puts part time players much lower in rankings. But on a day-by-day basis, you may know that the part timer is going to be in the major league lineup and on a game-by-game basis, he may actually be better than the guy you normally start. In other words, if the PFM generated a daily value, based on the idea that every player listed would be in the lineup, then you can better compare part-time players vs. everyday players when filling out a daily fantasy lineup. For example, perhaps John Mayberry is a better fantasy player when in the lineup than Nick Markakis, even though the PFM ranks Markakis much higher overall. I hope I made this clear.
(tommybones from brooklyn)
I think I follow, yes. I think this can be accomplished with the current PFM setup if you only use rate stats. If we added more rate stats to the PFM (like RBI/PA, for instance) would that satisfy what you're looking for here? (Colin Wyers)
2011-06-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)Rank em please: Brantly, Markakis, Pagan, Torres
(Ralph from Arlington)
I think you've got the order right there. Michael Brantley, Nick Markakis, Angel Pagan, Andres Torres. Brantley and Markakis are close, but I'd probably go Brantley first. (Derek Carty)
2010-01-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who do you think is better for this year and for the future, Adam Jones or Nick Markakis?
(TGisriel from Baltimore)
Nick Markakis now, potentially Adam Jones down the line. I'll have a better answer for you before 2011.

Sorry about the delay everyone, I'm having some issues with my computer. (Marc Normandin)
2009-05-18 14:00:00 (link to chat)Am I crazy to say that Nick Markakis could be the next Al Kaline.
(Mike from Utica,NY)
It's an interesting comparison, but here's hoping Markakis does better as an outfield coach when he's charged with teaching Kirk Gibson III how to play the field in... what, 2038? (Christina Kahrl)
2009-05-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)I seem to remember a spirited debate taking place a few years ago over whether Melky Cabrera was a better prospect than Nick Markakis, with more than a few people taking up Melky's case. Was there ever a legitimate reason for differing opinions? Yankees fans have been known to overvalue their players from time to time...
(tim from jersey city, nj)
No, it was never legitimate. That was me looking at some early statistical similarities when they first came up, but their paths quickly diverged. It was my way of rooting for Melky to be more than what he was in a kind of tongue in cheek way. (Steven Goldman)
2009-05-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)Have the various games this year between the Yankees and the Orioles given you any impression of the Orioles this year?
(TGisriel from Baltimore)
They're a bit more entertaining than they have been for the last few years, because they now have like four-fifths of an interesting batting order. The pitching staff remains a concept. Things are coming together so slowly, that I feel like Nick Markakis and Adam Jones will be free agent eligible before the O's manage to put a team around them... That's the one great thing about free agency - no player is condemned to be Wally Berger now, or Ralph Kiner, or Bob Johnson. If your team is unserious or incompetent, you can bail. (Steven Goldman)
2008-09-23 13:30:00 (link to chat)Thanks for the chat. What do you think of Aubrey Huff going forward? And is Nick Markakis already the best RF in the American League?
(Brendan from Bainbridge)
I wouldn't want to make a long-term commitment to Huff, and while he has had a great season, the Orioles really should look to leverage that in the trade market. He'll never have more value than this, and he's not a part of their future.

Markakis is a total stud, the best RF in the league. He's underappreciated, kind of the AL East version of Grady Sizemore. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-08-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)The Orioles are hitting .311/.372/.511 in the 30 games since the All-Star break and are now 3rd in the AL in runs behind Texas and Boston. Should they sign a few big pitchers next season and make a push, or is this season's offense just a collection of career years?
(Steve from Baltimore)
The latter. There's some good players here--Nick Markakis, Brian Roberts, Adam Jones (now hurt)--but the recent push is about guys like Aubrey Huff and Melvin Mora, who have no future here. (Joe Sheehan)

I really like Markakis. I think he's a solid bet to have a lot of 30-homer, 100-RBI years with a decent batting average. (John Perrotto)
