Braves P Mike Soroka set to join team's broadcast for second time

While recovering from injury, Braves P Mike Soroka is "set to join the Braves’ broadcast for the second time" for Friday’s game against the Marlins at Truist Park, where he will "join Braves broadcast regulars" Chip Caray and Jeff Francoeur as they call the game from the right-field seats, according to Justin Toscano of the ATLANTA JOURNAL-CONSTITUTION. Soroka has "gained respect for their daily grind," as last season he "joined the pair as a guest analyst" for a game against the Yankees. Soroka knew Bally Sports "wanted him for his pitching analysis," but he "had to provide it for both sides." Most casual fans "don’t understand the sport like he does," which means Soroka "had to make his analysis easy to digest." He said that he "found it important to know what he was going to say before he would say it," so "think it first, then spit it out." Soroka said, "The other part that I found out pretty quick is that if you’re too long-winded, you’re going to get interrupted by a play, and you’ve got to catch up to where you were." Soroka, who re-tore his right Achilles tendon in June, still "expects to return at some point right after the All-Star break" (ATLANTA JOURNAL-CONSTITUTION, 5/26).
