Michael Soroka was taken out of the contest following three innings. Michael Soroka’s night in the major leagues, which marked his most recent comeback to the team, was not one to be remembered fondly. After an impressive first inning, Soroka left the ball up too many times, and the Cardinals frequently made him pay for it.
Jordan Walker drove in a run with a double, and both Tyler O’Neill and Nolan Gorman hit home rockets that scored two runs each, resulting in a total of five earned runs allowed across the first three innings.
To make matters even worse, the training staff was seen examining Soroka after the top of the third inning, and sure enough, he was removed from the game after three in favor of Collin McHugh, who hasn’t done anything to slow down the Redbirds’ offense.
Although a blister is the first thing that comes to mind in this scenario, we have yet to obtain definitive evidence regarding the nature of the problem. If any new information emerges, this post will be updated accordingly.
Michael Soroka is going to get the ball today for the Braves. This season, he has appeared in six games for Atlanta, making five starts, and has a record of 2-1 with a 5.56 earned run average. It is his third call-up of the season, and outside of those two trips in the major leagues, he is 4-4 with a 3.41 ERA and has started seventeen games for AAA Gwinnett this season.
1B Paul Goldschmidt is the only player on the Cardinals roster who has faced Soroka in the major leagues. In the past, Goldschmidt has gone 2-4 with an RBI against Soroka, but Cardinals prospect Masyn Winn has gone 1-4 with a single against Soroka for AAA Memphis this season.
Miles Mikolas is the player who will compete against Atlanta. Mikolas has a record of 6-10 with an earned run average of 4.66. In 164.1 innings pitched, he has only 112 strikeouts while also walking 33 batters. Matt Olson (3-6, HR, 3 RBIs), Marcell Ozuna (3-8, 2 HRs, 2 RBIs), and Eddie Rosario (408, HR, RBI) are just a few of the Braves batters who have gone deep against him. All three of them have also driven in runs.
