Soroka has surrendered 33 earned runs over 21 starts this season, bringing his career ERA to 2.52 in 26 big league turns. He's benefited from a .274 BABIP and 8.0% HR/FB rate this season, but the righty also boasts one of baseball's lowest exit velocities against. Even with some regression, he should continue to positive ERA contributions. The strikeouts are nothing special, but the elite command (5.8 BB%) makes him a trustworthy starter going forward.

Soroka was blazing for a while and has come back down to earth a little. It should continue to be a slide over the second half as his batted ball data catches up to his stats but he is still without a doubt a top 40 starting pitcher at this point.

Soroka has a subpar strikeout rate and he's due for a healthy amount of ERA regression. But he's been so good that he can afford to regress and still be a well-above average fantasy starter.
