Player Notes
Nick Markakis (neck) is expected to play in a minor league game Thursday.

Advice: Markakis made his return from neck surgery this week and the Braves are trying to get him as many at-bats as possible before the start of the season. By playing in the minor league game, he should be able to get 5-7 at-bats. The expectation is that he will be ready for Opening Day.

Nick Markakis (neck) played six innings in the outfield in Tuesday's Grapefruit League game and declared afterwards that he was ready for Opening Day.

Advice: The veteran outfielder underwent surgery in December to repair a herniated disc in his neck. He returned to game action on Monday as the Braves' designated hitter before manning his position defensively on Tuesday. Manager Fredi Gonzalez echoed the same sentiments, saying he was confident Markakis would be in the lineup when the regular season kicks off on April 6.

Nick Markakis (neck) is expected to make his Grapefruit League debut Monday.

Advice: Markakis took batting practice for the third straight day Sunday, clearing him for game action. He will DH in the game, giving him some more time to get acclimated before playing the field. With a few weeks of spring training left, Markakis still has time to get in shape before Opening Day.
