Mike Soroka News
As things currently stand, Atlanta Braves starting pitcher Mike Soroka (Achilles) will come to spring training next year without any restrictions. Soroka will be looking to prove that he can be effective after having surgery on his right Achilles tendon twice. The 25-year-old also dealt with right elbow soreness while pitching in the minor leagues and landed on the injured list at Triple-A Gwinnett in late September. In six starts with High-A Rome and Gwinnett this year, Soroka had a 5.40 ERA, 1.12 WHIP, 25 strikeouts and seven walks in 25 innings pitched. He was an All-Star in his second big-league season in 2019, but he's made only three starts in the last two years due to Achilles injuries, which will keep his fantasy cost down entering 2023 drafts.
Atlanta Braves starting pitcher Mike Soroka (Achilles) won't have any restrictions heading into spring training, according to GM Alex Anthopoulos. This is great news for the right-hander who hasn't pitched in the MLB since 2020. Soroka has torn his Achilles tendon twice and suffered a season-ending elbow injury in late September. The 25-year-old was excellent when he first came into the MLB in 2019. The expectation is that the team will somewhat limit his workload considering he hasn't pitched in years.
Atlanta Braves starting pitcher Mike Soroka (elbow) is being placed on the injured list in the minor leagues at Triple-A Gwinnett with right elbow soreness, according to a source. The good news is that there is no structural damage in his arm, but he'll now miss the rest of the season. The 25-year-old had yet to pitch in 2022 while recovering from a torn Achilles, but he was hoping to return later this month in a relief role for Atlanta. Soroka hasn't made a major-league start since 2020, but he was an All-Star in 2019 in just his second MLB campaign. In six starts for High-A Rome and Gwinnett on his rehab assignment, he allowed 15 earned runs on 21 hits (three homers) while walking seven and striking out 25 in 25 innings pitched.
Atlanta Braves starting pitcher Mike Soroka's 2020 season lasted just three starts after suffering a torn Achilles in August. Although the Braves have yet to provide a timetable for his return, Soroka did begin throwing again in early January, so he should at least be able to partake in some sort of spring training. Opening Day will be eight months after his injury, so even if Soroka isn't ready for the first game of the season, he shouldn't be far off. When Soroka is back on the mound, he will slot into an impressive rotation and will look to get back to the 2019 version of himself when he put up a 13-4 record over 29 starts and 174.2 innings with a 2.68 ERA and 1.111 WHIP in his first full season in the majors. The underlying numbers did raise some concerns over Soroka's ability to repeat that, as he also had a 4.28 SIERA and 3.85 xFIP. Soroka will likely continue that trend given his propensity to induce lots of weak contact rather than miss bats, as his career 19.6% strikeout rate has translated into 171 strikeouts in 214 innings. Soroka's current ADP is around 170, and even though a lack of strikeouts will limit his upside, the Braves offense will help him accumulate wins and his ERA and WHIP will be useful, providing draft value even if he misses the first month of the season. Just monitor his injury progress this spring.
