After initially ruling Mike Soroka (Achilles) out for the season, Braves manager Brian Snitker told the media that he misspoke and instead expects the 23-year-old to be re-evaluated in June. “I messed up today when I was on that little TV show," explained Snitker. “Soroka does have a chance of getting back, and I didn’t think he did. ... I just assumed when I saw him riding around on that scooter, there wasn’t a chance. But I got that wrong. I screwed up. It’s not the first, and it won’t be the last.”

Notes 
 Stroman missed the entire 2020 season after battling a calf injury and then opting out, but he'll return to the Mets after accepting the team's qualifying offer. Stroman's strikeout rate jumped after his trade to the National League, but with a career 58.7% ground ball rate, he'll need the Mets' infield defense to be better than it was in 2019. The trade for Francisco Lindor should help, as should his reported development of both a new split changeup and four-seam fastball. Stroman has always had a decent floor, but now out of the AL East and with some tweaks to his arsenal coming, he possesses plenty of upside as a late-round draft pick.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Soroka pitched in just three games last year before rupturing his Achilles tendon. He's progressing well but the best case scenario for him appears to be a late-April return. When healthy, he's someone who fantasy managers can rely on as an ERA and WHIP stabilizer, who should contribute plenty of wins. The strikeouts won't be there, however, and given that he's coming off a significant injury, the Braves will likely be extra cautious with him when he does start. All that to say, don't draft Soroka expecting much more than 100-120 innings out of him. If you do that, you'll likely be happy with your return on investment.
