BRAVES PLACE CANADIAN STARTING PITCHER SOROKA ON DL
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.
