Braves' Soroka set to debut vs. Mets”

The 20-year-old right-hander will make his inaugural start Tuesday night against the Mets in NY.

Soroka was called up from Triple-A Gwinnett and will start Tuesday against the Mets.

Upon signing with the Braves at the tender age of 17, Soroka has enjoyed stellar numbers during his three-plus seasons in the minors, posting a 2.85 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 311/76 K-BB rate over 65 appearances (63 starts). They already have outfielder Ronald Acuna Jr., who is four months younger than Soroka, and 21-year-old second baseman Ozzie Albies.

Newcomb is averaging 32.0 FanDuel points per game this season and numberFire's models project him to spin a 4.93 ERA and 1.53 WHIP with 93 punchouts over the remainder of the year. Last year, he went 11-8 with a 2.75 ERA for MS in the Double-A Southern League. Albies is tied for the National League lead in homers with nine and Acuña has provided a spark in his first five games.

The Braves went into May at 16-11 and trailing the first-place Mets by just 1 1/2 games in the NL East.

Now it's up to Soroka to keep the momentum going.
