After a report last week that Atlanta Braves pitcher Michael Soroka suffered a hamstring strain and will be held back at Spring Training, it appears that he is making some improvement. Soroka, who has not appeared in a major league game since 2020, caught up with Grant McAuley of 92.9 The Game to discuss his latest concern.

Last week’s decision to hold Soroka back was extremely precautionary, given the 25-year-old has already dealt with a pair of Achilles injuries in the past. This year, he will battle for a spot in the starting rotation.

Nonetheless, the Braves will kick off play in the Grapefruit League on Saturday against the Boston Red Sox.
