ATLANTA (AP) – The Atlanta Braves have placed 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 left-hander 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, including four starts, 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.

Rick Nyman grew up in Anniston, Alabama and attended the University of Alabama. His television career started at WJSU-TV in Anniston where he had the opportunity to cover SEC football with Alabama and Auburn. Anniston is just 20 minutes from the Talladega Speedway, so NASCAR was a big part of his sports coverage. Due to this he was able to interview Davey Allison, Dale Earnhardt, Jeff Gordon, and several other top-name NASCAR drivers. Rick's next television job was in Savannah, Georgia, where he covered basketball player Kwame Brown (now with the Washington Wizards), who later became the first ever high school player selected as the top pick in the NBA draft. He covered the PGA Tour's annual swing thru Hilton Head and also had the opportunity of covering the Atlanta Falcons Super Bowl appearance in 1999 in Miami. Rick especially enjoys all the atmosphere, tradition and drama of college football. He also likes profiling sports personalities and learning what drives them both on and off the field. If he's not covering sports, he's either watching Seinfield or David Letterman, playing golf, reading, or working out. What he enjoys about Chattanooga is the passion people have for sports. The mountainous region of Chattanooga reminds him of his hometown of Anniston, which also has big, beautiful trees and plenty of hills. You can contact Rick at rnyman@wdef.com.
