Recovery from Nick Markakis

The team doesn't seem to be too concerned whether Markakis will be ready for Opening Day — nor that he needs a certain number of at-bats this spring — after offseason abdominal surgery. And given Markakis' intense workout regimen, maybe he doesn't need to meet any kind of at-bats quota this spring. But given the question mark about Roberts' health, the Orioles need Markakis, who played in at least 157 games each of the past five seasons, in the lineup.
