Mike Soroka is getting closer to his return to the Atlanta Braves after this latest positive update.
Mike Soroka didn’t serve for them Atlanta Braves since the truncated 2020 season after tearing his Achilles tendon while setting up a ball during a game against the New York Mets. He suffered another setback last season when he tore his Achilles tendon again, putting him back on the shelf. Only last month his comeback was delayed again.
