Braves' Mike Soroka (groin) making debut Friday

Atlanta Braves starting pitcher Mike Soroka (groin) is scheduled to make his Grapefruit League debut on Friday against the New York Yankees.

What It Means:

Soroka missed a turn in the spring rotation after tweaking his groin in batting practice last week. The 22-year-old right-hander should be fine for the start of the regular season.

Soroka recorded a 2.68 ERA and 1.11 WHIP over 174 2/3 innings last season. He went 13-4 in 29 starts.
