Markakis out another week with small disc herniation

After undergoing an MRI on Monday, Orioles right fielder Nick Markakis is suffering from a small disc herniation in his neck and will be sidelined for at least another week.

Manager Buck Showalter revealed the results with reporters in Sarasota on Tuesday morning, but the club remains optimistic that Markakis is not in danger of missing the start of the season. The injury reportedly has a recovery period of one to two weeks and the 29-year-old has already been sidelined for more than a week.

Markakis was seeing a specialist in Baltimore on Tuesday, but the Baltimore manager told reporters the outfielder is feeling better over the last day or two.
