Michael Soroka, after pitching and rehabbing with the Gwinnett Stripers, returned to start for the Atlanta Braves for the first time since July 21 where he pitched 6 innings and was credited for the win. Tuesday's outing wasn't as successful. He was a bit inconsistent on then mound according to Braves manager Brian Snitker when asked by reporters.
The reason for that unusual inconsistency could be linked to the cause of his exit as Soroka left the game in the third inning due to numbness in his hand. When asked, Snitker stated that Soroka told him he couldn't pinpoint when the numbness started and this situation is a big deal concerning it could once again push his recovery and by extension, his return to the starting rotation heading into the postseason.
