Soroka (Achilles) has been throwing off flat ground, Arash Madani of Sportsnet reports. Soroka tore his Achilles in early August and eventually underwent surgery. The fact that he's already throwing in some capacity is certainly a good sign, though he has a long wait to go before he's up to full speed. Whether he's at that point by Opening Day remains to be seen.
Soroka (Achilles) is expected to be ready to throw by the time spring training begins, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports. Soroka pitched just three times this season before tearing his Achilles tendon, an injury that required surgery. He's hoping to be ready to go by Opening Day, though the Braves will be cautious with the 23-year-old and will be willing to have him miss a start or two in the interests of his long-term health.
Soroka (Achilles) thinks he could be ready to pitch by Opening Day next season, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports. The right-hander noted that Adam Wainwright was able to return and pitch in the playoffs roughly five months after surgery to repair his torn Achilles tendon back in 2015, but Wainwright's injury was to his landing leg and not the leg he pushes off with, which presents an extra wrinkle in Soroka's recovery. The 23-year-old also said he plans to use his rehab period to make some mechanical tweaks to his delivery. He'll be in a cast or boot for four months post-surgery, so he likely won't have a clear timetable for his return to the mound until that gets removed, but Soroka would still have about three more months after that to get into shape for the projected start of spring training in 2021.
Soroka underwent successful surgery on his torn right Achilles' tendon Friday. Soroka had to be helped off the field after suffering the injury in his third start of the season against the Mets on Monday. He'll be out for the remainder of the season, and his readiness for Opening Day next year is in doubt as well.
Soroka (Achilles) was placed on the 45-day injured list Tuesday. The move was an expected one after the young righty was ruled out for the season with a torn right Achilles' tendon Monday. He's expected to undergo surgery within the next week. Chad Sobotka and Huascar Ynoa were recalled by the Braves, though both have been exclusively relievers at the big-league level, so it remains unclear who will take his spot in the rotation.
