Braves' Mike Soroka: Fans career high in victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soroka (10-1) earned the win versus San Diego on Sunday, hurling seven scoreless innings and allowing six hits and one walk while striking out nine.

Soroka kept Padres hitters off-kilter all afternoon, establishing a career high with nine strikeouts while tossing 62 of his 83 pitches for strikes and inducing 18 swings-and-misses. He was hit in the hand by a pitch from opposing starter Cal Quantrill in the third inning but showed no ill effects, completing seven innings for the fifth time in 16 starts this season. The 21-year-old sensation has been dominant on the road in his first major-league season, with Sunday's performance raising his record to 6-0 away from home while lowering his road ERA to a minuscule 1.13. He'll carry a sparkling 10-1 overall record along with a 2.24 ERA and 1.05 WHIP into his next start, at home Friday against the Nationals.

Braves' Mike Soroka: Struggles early in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soroka did not factor into the decision against the Phillies on Thursday, tossing 4.2 innings and giving up four runs on nine hits and two walks while striking out six.

Soroka was actually in line for the win but fell one out short when he was pulled in the fifth inning after throwing his 100th pitch. All four of the runs he allowed came in the first inning and all nine of the hits against him were singles. Despite the rocky outing, the rookie All-Star enters the break with an impressive 9-1 record complemented by a 2.42 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 73:21 K:BB in 89.1 innings.

Braves' Mike Soroka: Collects ninth win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soroka (9-1) picked up the win in Friday's 6-2 victory over the Mets, allowing two runs on seven hits over 6.1 innings while striking out four.

The rookie right-hander didn't appear to be affected by the forearm bruise he suffered from the HBP in his last outing, cruising to his 10th quality start in 14 trips to the mound. Soroka will carry a 2.13 ERA and 67:19 K:BB through 84.2 innings into his next start Thursday, at home against the Phillies.

Braves' Mike Soroka: Cleared for Friday's start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soroka (forearm) is listed as the Braves' probable pitcher for Friday's game against the Mets.

With no word surfacing that the Braves are contemplating other options for the series opener, Soroka apparently came out of Wednesday's pre-start bullpen session no worse for the wear. Soroka, who exited his previous outing June 23 against the Nationals early after being struck on the right forearm while batting, was fortunate to escape the contest with a bruise and isn't expected to face any restrictions with his pitch count in his return to action.

Braves' Mike Soroka: On track to start Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soroka (forearm) is expected to start Friday against the Mets, Gabe Burns of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Soroka was struck by a comebacker during his last start, but he felt good during a bullpen session Wednesday, putting the right-hander on track to start Friday's series opener in New York. In 13 starts this season, Soroka owns a shiny 2.07 ERA, 0.97 WHIP and 63:19 K:BB in 78.1 innings.

Braves' Mike Soroka: Next start still undecided
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soroka (forearm) felt lingering tightness after playing catch Tuesday, so the Braves don't yet know if he'll start against the Mets over the weekend, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

Soroka was struck by a comebacker during his last start, and the bruise he suffered may wind up forcing him to miss his next turn, or at least delay his start. He'll throw off a mound Wednesday, at which point the Braves will have a clearer idea of the path forward.

Braves' Mike Soroka: Next start could be pushed back
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soroka (forearm) will begin throwing again Tuesday, after which Atlanta will make a determination whether he'll be ready for his next scheduled start Friday, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports. "You feel good about it and all of that, but until he launches a ball, we're not going to know for sure," manager Brian Snitker said Monday.

The right-hander exited his last start early after taking a comebacker off the forearm, but Soroka escaped with nothing but a bruise and wasn't seen wearing any sort of compression sleeve or padding on the area Monday. Even if Soroka checks out OK on Tuesday, however, the club may elect to play it safe and push his next start back to Saturday or Sunday, using Friday's start as a chance to audition another young pitcher for the open rotation spot created when Mike Foltynewicz was sent down to Triple-A Gwinnett.

Braves' Mike Soroka: X-rays come back clean
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

X-rays on Soroka's forearm came back negative, 680 The Fan Atlanta reports.

Soroka exited Sunday's game against the Nationals after getting hit by a pitch on the right forearm, though early indications are that the young hurler escaped with a bruise. "It feels like a bruise," Soroka told 680 The Fan Atlanta. "I've been hit by enough pucks, baseballs in my lifetime to know the aftermath. It's just a bruise." Despite the good news, it remains to be seen whether Soroka will be able to make his next start on schedule. According to manager Brian Snitker, more should be known after the right-hander gets a chance to play catch in a couple of days. Prior to exiting, the 21-year-old allowed one hit and recorded one strikeout across two scoreless frames.

Braves' Mike Soroka: Exits after HBP
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soroka was removed from Sunday's game against the Nationals after being hit by a pitch on the right forearm.

The Braves labeled his exit as precautionary and didn't designate a specific injury, so it may be a minor issue. The 21-year-old allowed one hit and had one strikeout over two scoreless frames before leaving the game.

Braves' Mike Soroka: Yields three runs in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soroka (8-1) allowed three runs on six hits with two strikeouts and one walk across six innings while earning a victory against the Mets on Monday.

The 21-year-old has been giving up more runs this month, but he continues to rack up wins. He is 3-0 with a 4.32 ERA in June. It helps that the Braves offense is absolutely on fire and has scored at least seven runs in each of his last four outings. Overall, Soroka is 8-1 with a 2.12 ERA, .201 batting average against, 0.98 WHIP and 62 strikeouts in 76.1 innings. He will face the Nationals on the road in his next start Sunday.

Braves' Mike Soroka: Finally stumbles against Bucs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soroka didn't factor into the decision in Wednesday's 8-7 extra-innings win over the Pirates, giving up five runs on 10 hits and a walk over five innings while striking out three.

After reeling off eight straight quality starts, Soroka was probably overdue for a clunker. The 21-year-old still has an impeccable 1.92 ERA and 60:18 K:BB through 70.1 innings, and he'll look to get back on track Monday, at home against the Mets.

Braves' Mike Soroka: Hurls eight strong innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soroka (7-1) picked up the win Friday after allowing one run on three hits and two walks while striking out six over eight innings against the Marlins.

Soroka cruised through the first eight innings of his start before issuing a leadoff walk to begin the ninth frame, and he was pulled immediately afterwards. The baserunner would score later in the inning, though it wouldn't matter much in a 7-1 victory. The 21-year-old has secured a win in four of his last five outings, and his ERA has dropped to 1.41 over 57.1 innings this season as a result.

Braves' Mike Soroka: Secures sixth victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soroka (6-1) earned the win Saturday versus the Tigers by allowing four runs (three earned) on seven hits over 6.2 innings. He struck out five and walked none.

It's the first time Soroka has allowed more than one earned run in a start this season. He likely would have been able to finish seven innings, but he was pulled after giving up an unearned run on a triple from Niko Goodrum with two outs in the seventh. The 21-year-old has a 1.41 ERA, 0.91 WHIP and 51:15 K:BB through 57.1 innings and lines up to pitch Friday at Miami.

Braves' Mike Soroka: Hurls another quality start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soroka allowed two runs (one earned) on five hits and one walk over six innings during Saturday's loss to the Cardinals. He struck out five and did not factor in the decision.

Soroka finished the outing at only 80 pitches, but he was pulled in favor of a pinch hitter in the top of the seventh inning with a runner in scoring position. The 21-year-old has a 1.07 ERA, 0.89 WHIP and 46:15 K:BB through 50.2 innings and has a favorable matchup against the Tigers next weekend.

Braves' Mike Soroka: Whiffs seven in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soroka (5-1) fired eight innings Monday, allowing a run on two hits while taking the win over the Giants. He yielded a homer and struck out seven.

Aside from Brandon Crawford's solo shot in the sixth inning, Soroka absolutely dominated the Giants' lineup. His eight-inning outing was a career high, but oddly enough, his season ERA actually went up after Monday. The 21-year-old rookie is sporting a 1.01 ERA and 41:14 K:BB across 44.2 frames. Soroka will take the mound in St. Louis on Saturday.

Braves' Mike Soroka: Shuts down Cards for fourth win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soroka (4-1) picked up the win in Wednesday's 4-0 victory over the Cardinals, giving up three hits and three walks over seven scoreless innings while striking out three.

The right-hander ran into serious trouble in the third inning, loading the bases on two walks and a HBP with one out, but Soroka coaxed a double-play grounder out of Paul Goldschmidt to escape the jam. The 21-year-old has yet to give up more than a single run in any of his six starts since his promotion, and Soroka will take a dazzling 0.98 ERA and 34:14 K:BB through 36.2 innings into his next outing Monday in San Francisco.

May 10, 2019 01:40 AM
Braves' Mike Soroka: No-decision against Diamondbacks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soroka didn't factor into the decision against the Diamondbacks on Thursday, giving up one earned run on four hits over six innings, striking out four and walking three as the Braves fell 3-2 in 10 innings.

It was another strong effort from the right-hander, but he ultimately settled for a no-decision in this low-scoring contest. Soroka has been lights-out in his five starts to begin the season, as this outing gives him a 1.21 ERA and a 1.04 WHIP over 29.2 innings. So far, the 21-year-old is showing why he was one of Atlanta's most highly regarded prospects. He'll look to keep it rolling in his next start, which will see him take on the Cardinals at home on Wednesday.

Braves' Mike Soroka: Delivers seven strong innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soroka (3-1) earned the win against the Marlins on Saturday by allowing two unearned runs 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.

Braves' Mike Soroka: Twirls a gem in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

April 25, 2019 04:32 PM
Braves' Mike Soroka: Fans seven in first win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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. 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.
