Nick Markakis (thumb) said on WBAL Radio Thursday that he's "good to go" for spring training.
Markakis underwent surgery in September for a fractured left thumb, but he won't be limited at all in spring training. "I'm good to go," he said. "I've had no setbacks. My thumb feels good. Everything couldn't have gone better." Markakis added that he's "got (his) workouts going" and is "just excited to get down (to spring training)." The 29-year-old was limited to just 104 games in 2012 due to a trio of surgeries, but it would be unfair to call him injury-prone, as he played in at least 157 games in each of the previous five seasons.
