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.
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.
