BRAVES PLACE CANA­DIAN START­ING PITCHER SOROKA ON DL

National Post (National Edition) - - SPORTS -

AT­LANTA The At­lanta Braves have placed Cal­gary-born rookie right-han­der Mike Soroka on the 10-day dis­abled list with a right shoul­der strain only hours be­fore he was sched­uled to start against the Chicago Cubs.

The Braves re­called left­hander Max Fried from Triple-a Gwin­nett to start Thurs­day night’s game against Chicago. Fried is 0-2 with a 6.00 ERA in four games, all in re­lief, this sea­son. He was 1-1 with a 3.81 ERA in nine games in 2017.

Fried was op­tioned to Gwin­nett on May 5 so he could get reg­u­lar work as a starter. The move with Soroka was made retroac­tive to Mon­day.
