The Braves have been red-hot in the month of June, going 18-4 over that stretch, including a 14-game win streak. And they have reinforcements coming. Mike Soroka is supposed to begin his rehab assignment before the All-Star break, but last year’s NLCS MVP is set to return even sooner.
Eddie Rosario will start a rehabilitation assignment Saturday night with Triple-A Gwinnett in Nashville. The veteran #Braves outfielder has been on the injured list since late April after experiencing blurred vision and swelling that required laser surgery to correct.

Before undergoing laser eye surgery two months ago, Eddie Rosario wasn’t the playoff version of himself. He only had three hits in his first 45 at-bats for an unsightly .086 batting average.
The vision issue was the only reasonable explanation for such a consistent player to be so abysmal. Good news for Braves Country, things are trending in the right direction; the lineup could use a left-handed bat.
