Heredia was optioned to Atlanta's alternate training site Thursday, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

Heredia was claimed off waivers from the Mets in February. While he'll remain on Atlanta's 40-man roster, he won't break camp with the big-league squad. He could be back with the team if injuries strike the outfielders ahead of him, but even if that comes to pass, Heredia is unlikely to fill a significant role.
