Braves' Nick Markakis making first start Thursday

Atlanta Braves outfielder Nick Markakis is starting on Thursday against right-hander Nate Pearson and the Toronto Blue Jays.

What It Means:

Markakis debuted off the bench Wednesday night but he will man right field and hit fifth in his first start of the season. Markakis initially opted out of playing this season but changed his mind last week. Ronald Acuna will slide to center field in place of Ender Inciarte and lead off the order.

numberFire's models expect Markakis to score 9.7 FanDuel points on Thursday. He costs $2,200.
