Soroka (2-1) picked up the win Wednesday against the Mets, allowing just one hit and one walk across 6.1 scoreless innings. He struck out four.
Soroka was brilliant in his first start since May 12, carrying a no-hitter into the seventh inning and outdueling Jacob deGrom en route to his second win of the season. Despite throwing just 74 pitches -- 44 of which were strikes -- in his return to action, the strong outing should ease any worries that the bout of shoulder inflammation that kept Soroka on the shelf for close to a month would linger. The 20-year-old now owns a solid 2.57 ERA and 19:5 K:BB through his first four big-league starts. He should be afforded a longer leash his next time out, which will come against the Blue Jays in Toronto.
Soroka (shoulder) was reinstated from the 10-day disabled list ahead of his scheduled start Wednesday against the Mets.
The right-hander rejoins the Braves after spending about a month on the DL while recovering from a bout of shoulder inflammation. Soroka looked strong in his two rehab starts with Low-A Rome prior to being activated and shouldn't face a limited pitch count as he rejoins the Atlanta rotation. With Soroka back in the fold, Anibal Sanchez will presumably transition to a long-relief role, while the Braves designated Luke Jackson for assignment to make room for the rookie.
Soroka (shoulder) will return from the disabled list to start Wednesday's game against the Mets, David O'Brien of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Soroka has made two minor-league rehab starts, tossing 4.1 innings (73 pitches) for Triple-A Gwinnett last Wednesday. The 20-year-old was expected to make an additional rehab start for Gwinnett, but will instead have a pitch limit of 85-to-90 in his return to the big leagues Wednesday.
Soroka (shoulder) allowed one run on three hits and a walk over 4.1 innings while striking out seven for Triple-A Gwinnett in Wednesday's loss to Lehigh Valley.
The right-hander threw 52 of 73 pitches for strikes in his second rehab outing, but despite his workload and success the Braves are in no hurry to rush him back to the majors and are likely to give him one more minor-league start to get fully stretched out. Soroka posted a 3.68 ERA and 15:4 K:BB through 14.2 innings in his first three big-league starts before the shoulder woes arose.
Soroka (shoulder) is expected to make two more minor-league rehab starts and isn't on track to return from the 10-day disabled list until June 16 at the earliest, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.
Soroka, who was placed on the DL after experiencing right shoulder inflammation following his May 12 start against the Marlins, completed his first rehab outing Friday, tossing 45 pitches in 3.2 perfect innings. Despite that stellar showing, Soroka will still need to build up his stamina in the minors a little more before the Braves are comfortable slotting him back into the big-league rotation. Soroka is scheduled to move his assignment to Triple-A Gwinnett on Wednesday for his second rehab start, with the 20-year-old likely to throw around 60 pitches in the appearance.
