Soroka (3-1) earned the win against the Marlins on Saturday by allowing two unearned run on three hits. He struck out six and walked two.
Soroka pitched well for the fourth straight start since his promotion, with a pair of errors during the second inning helping to account for the Marlins only runs of the evening. The 21-year-old has a 1.14 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 27:8 K:BB across 23.2 innings and will look to keep things rolling Thursday at Arizona.
Soroka (2-1) gave up one run on four hits with one walk while striking out eight through six innings to earn the win over the Padres on Monday.
Although Soroka only induced eight swinging strikes, he got 22 called strikes on his way to eight strikeouts and his second win. The 21-year-old was efficient, pitching six innings on only 81 pitches. He has yet to allow more than one earned run in a start and has a 1.62 ERA through three outings this season. Soroka will get his next start Saturday in Miami.
Soroka (1-1) picked up the win Wednesday, allowing one run on five hits and three walks over 5.2 innings while striking out seven in a 3-1 victory over the Reds.
The right-hander's evening started and ended in shaky fashion -- he allowed the first three Reds he faced to reach base, then loaded the bases with two outs in the sixth before being replaced by Josh Tomlin, who got a groundout to first base to escape the jam -- but in between Soroka was sharp. He threw 67 of 109 pitches for strikes, a strong sign Atlanta isn't too concerned about his shoulder, and the 21-year-old appears to be locking down a rotation spot. If he stays on schedule, Soroka's next start would come Monday, at home against the Padres.
Soroka is listed as the probable starter for Wednesday's game in Cincinnati.
Soroka pitched well enough in his season debut for the Braves that it was expected he would remain in the rotation, and this serves as confirmation. Touki Toussaint, who was lit up for seven earned runs in 1.1 innings Saturday, would be the likely odd man out with Mike Foltynewicz (elbow) set to return next week. It is also possible the Braves would go with a six-man rotation in the short term. Regardless, Soroka's spot seems safe for now.
Soroka (0-1) allowed one earned run on four hits and two walks while striking out six across five innings to take the loss Thursday against the Diamondbacks.
Soroka made his 2019 debut with the Braves Thursday and put together a strong performance, allowing his only run in the first inning. He racked up 13 swinging strikes and had his fastball averaging 94 mph and touching 96 mph, up from his marks last season. While the Braves will almost certainly continue to manage his innings, it was an encouraging first start for the 21-year-old.
