The Rome Braves announce that Atlanta Braves pitcher Mike Soroka is scheduled to pitch Friday night at State Mutual Stadium as part of a Major League Baseball rehab assignment. Soroka was placed on the 10-day disabled list on May 17th retroactive to May 14th with a right shoulder strain.
Soroka’s appearance in Rome is a homecoming of sorts as he was an integral part of the 2016 South Atlantic League Championship team. In 2016, Soroka went 7-0 over his last eight starts. He made a pair of postseason starts and allowed just one earned run over 14.2 innings of work.
The Rome Braves will play the Columbia Fireflies at 7 p.m. and tickets are available at the ticket office and online at romebraves.com
