Orioles activate Nick Markakis from DL after broken wrist

2 Comments

Baltimore decided not to wait until the second half officially began, activating Nick Markakis from the disabled list after the outfielder missed the past six weeks with a broken hamate bone in his right wrist.

Markakis showed he was ready to return by homering twice during a brief three-game rehab assignment in the minors. He homered a total of eight times in 50 games for the Orioles prior to the injury.

Baltimore started five different players in right field during Markakis’ absence, with Chris Davis getting most of the action there recently.
