"If you go out there and sign a 10-year, $300 million contract, there's always going to be doubters," Markakis said. "You've just got to go out and do what you're capable of doing. From 2012 to ’15, I had four surgeries. It's tough to come back, especially the first year, when I came back here in ’15. It's tough when you're not able to do anything.

It's not just one person doing it. Everybody is helping each other and making each other better."
