Mike Soroka has been named the Braves' Opening Day starter. He is the youngest Opening Day starter for the Braves in the modern era. (Braves on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact:

Soroka was expected to get the nod, and he did. He looks to build on a tremendous rookie year in which he posted a 2.68 ERA with 142 strikeouts over 174 and 2/3 innings. While the Braves are reportedly limiting their starters early on, Soroka may still be able to pitch a normal workload due to his low walk rate and ability to induce weak contact.
