It has been 1,056 days since the Braves drafted Mike Soroka. In that time, he has become of the most beloved pitching prospects in a loaded farm system.
Tonight, he makes his Major League debut against the division-rival New York Mets.
With Ronald Acuña, Jr.’s debut last Wednesday, this makes two of the highest-rated prospects in the system joining the big league team within a week. We, as a fanbase, are lucky to see the end of the rebuild come to fruition in such a manner. The days of Alberto Callaspo, Pedro Ciriaco, and Sugar Ray Marimon are no more. Never again will we endure Todd Cunningham.
Join us here tonight to discuss Soroka’s outing, Acuña’s swing, Ozzie Albies’ defense, Dansby Swanson’s hair, or anything else that tickles your fancy. In case you want a closer look at the lineup or at the underlying subtext of tonight’s matchup, click these links and get caught up.
