Mike Soroka made is triumphant return to the mound for Atlanta Wednesday. Although it wasn’t the cleanest outing, just returning to the field is a big milestone after the ordeal of injuries he has gone through. While the results weren’t the greatest, his stuff looked pretty good and hopefully he can shake off the considerable rust over the next month or three. Meanwhile, Orlando Arcia made a statement of his own after he was de facto named the Opening Day starting shortstop with the optioning of Vaughn Grissom and Braden Shewmake, as Arcia walked, hit a single, and hit a long home run.
