Camden Yards took on the calm feel of a golf event during Wednesday’s zero-crowd game between the White Sox and Orioles. And so Orioles broadcaster Gary Thorne took the cue

Thorne has called college football, college hockey, NHL, and obviously Major League Baseball games, but he has never broadcasted golf in his long, decorated career. Cool to hear him try out the whisper.

Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports that Braves starter Mike Soroka will be shut down for the next 4-5 days due to renewed soreness in his right shoulder.

Soroka is not presently listed in the top five of the Braves depth chart at starter, but is nonetheless an enormously talented pitcher who, at some point this season, was likely to figure into their plans. He was supposed to figure in more largely than he did last season, but after an impressive debut he missed the entire second half with shoulder problems, making only five starts.

There will no doubt be a reevaluation of him in the next few days, but this is could bad news for the Braves’ pitching depth.
