Mike Soroka Is Having An Amazing Rookie Season, And Nobody Is Talking About It

Posted by Noah Wright on

By: Noah Wright   One of the Braves top prospects entering 2019 was RHP, Mike Soroka. He got a short glance at the MLB last season, but didn’t do anything too special in his short 25 and a third inning sample size. 3.51 ERA, 2.85 FIP, 1.442 WHIP, decent control, ok strikeout stuff. Regardless, he was still a front runner for a starting job for the Braves behind Mike Foltynewicz, and Julio Teheran, and one of the team’s top pitching prospects. Needless to say, Soroka decided to take advantage of the opportunity, and is pitching like an ace. Let's first...

Would Nomar Mazara Be A Fit For The Braves?

Posted by Dawson Wright on

By: Noah Wright Nomar Mazara has been speculated to start next season on another team that isn’t The Texas Rangers, and for a few good reasons.

On the other end, you have The Atlanta Braves, where nearly every player you could look at and think “this guy is going to be a super star”. So that...
