The Atlanta Braves are emerging from their roughest period of the 2023 season so far. The challenges they’ve faced extend beyond tough competition, as they’ve also had to cope with the absence of key players
from their starting rotation. Early this May, Max Fried and Kyle Wright, two crucial starters, were placed on the injured list (IL). Despite these setbacks, the Braves and their talented roster have maintained their momentum, recording a 14-12 record in the month with one series remaining against the struggling Oakland Athletics. Now, this series holds an additional significance: the return of Mike Soroka.
