Braves re-sign outfielder Nick Markakis to one-year deal

The Braves retained outfielder Nick Markakis on a one-year, $4 million deal Monday, the deadline for the team to decide on his $6 million club option.

Markakis was paid his $2 million buyout and signed for $4 million, giving him equal earnings he would’ve received if his option was picked up.

The move, which mirrors how the Braves handled catcher Tyler Flowers’ option earlier in the day, saves $2 million on payroll. The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal was the first to report Markakis’ new deal.

Markakis, who turns 36 this month, has patrolled the Braves outfield since 2015. He handled both corner spots in 2019.

The Bill Buckner of our times keeps rolling along….
