Last season, 34-year-old Nick Markakis played in 162 games for the NL East champion Braves, made his first All-Star team and and won a Gold Glove. He earned $11 million. Today, he re-signed with the Braves on one-year, $4 million deal with a team option for 2020 worth $6 million, which if not picked up by the Braves will reportedly trigger a $2 million buyout. Post-30 free agency just is isn't what it used to be.
