‘Leading the NL’ ATL becomes stronger → ‘Forgotten Young Gun’ imminent return
Mike Soroka (26, Atlanta Braves), who was evaluated as a pitcher who will win the mound in the major leagues but was in danger of being forgotten due to continued injuries, return to normal this time?
Soroka is currently rehabbing in minor league Triple-A. The results are good. He has a 1.32 earned run average in 13 2/3 innings over three games.
In particular, Soroka threw 91 balls (54 strikes) in 6 innings in the game on the 19th (Korean time), recording 4 hits and no runs. 5 strikeouts.
Soroka raised his pitch count to close to 100 through three minor league games. All that remains now is his return to the major leagues. 토스카지노
The problem is that Soroka’s body is like a time bomb that doesn’t know when it will explode. Soroca has played in just 12 games, including the minor leagues, over the three seasons since the 2019 season.
His injuries are very diverse. Soroca has been sidelined for the past three seasons due to a groin injury, ruptured Achilles tendon and elbow inflammation.
This time, he returned to the mound after overcoming a ruptured Achilles tendon. Since it is an injury with a very poor prognosis, both the Atlanta club and Soroca will be in a state of great tension.
The reason why Soroka, who is suffering from frequent injuries and is away for a long time, still has high expectations because the results of the 2019 season were so good.
Soroka, then 22, had a 2.68 ERA in 174 2/3 innings pitched in 29 games. He placed 6th in the Cy Young Award voting.
If Soroka returns to normal, Atlanta can form a young starting lineup that leads to Max Fried-Spencer Strider-Kyle Wright-Soroka.
