Markakis has pins removed from left thumb
BALTIMORE -- As expected, Orioles outfielder Nick Markakis got the pins removed from his broken left thumb on Monday, and he will be in a splint for the next two weeks.

Markakis, who was struck by a CC Sabathia fastball on Sept. 8, has been traveling with the team since his injury, and he was seen by hand specialist Dr. Brian Schofield in Sarasota, Fla., last week with the determination being to let the pins stay in a little longer to allow the area to fully heal.

A deep postseason run could open the door for Markakis -- the longest-tenured Orioles player behind Brian Roberts -- to make a return. The club's Opening Day right fielder, Markakis hit .298/.363/.471 in 104 regular-season games.
