When the Yankees play the Baltimore Orioles approximately 19 times in 2015, one familiar face won’t be there patrolling right field.

According to Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports, the Atlanta Braves signed OF Nick Markakis to a four-year, $44 Million deal pending a physical.

The deal is quite a surprise, considering the Orioles were still pursuing Markakis as of this morning, but the good news is Markakis won’t be a thorn in the Yankees side. The Yankees would still have to worry about him should they and the Braves meet up for regular season play within the next four years.
