Soroka (Achilles) hasn't had any setbacks in his recovery process and has been doing some mound work recently, Justin Toscano of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Soroka hasn't appeared in a game since August of 2020 due to multiple tears of his Achilles tendon. His most recent surgery was in early July of 2021, and it's encouraging that he's now able to throw off a mound. The team is hoping the right-hander will be able to return to game action around the All-Star break, but there's still a long way for him to go in his rehab before the team will be able to pinpoint a return date.
Soroka (Achilles) signed a one-year, $2.8 million contract with Atlanta on Thursday, avoiding arbitration. Soroka was placed on the 60-day injured list Wednesday, but he'll land a one-year deal with the club to avoid arbitration ahead of the 2022 campaign. The right-hander hasn't appeared in any games since August of 2020 but is hopeful he'll be able to return to game action at some point during the second half of the 2022 season. Soroka has been cleared to resume running and throwing, but he hasn't yet began mound work.
Atlanta placed Soroka (Achilles) on the 60-day injured list Wednesday, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports. Soroka's move to the 60-day IL clears a spot on the 40-man roster for outfielder Eddie Rosario, whom Atlanta re-signed Wednesday to a two-year, $18 million deal. Though Atlanta hasn't provided a definitive recovery timeline for Soroka's return after he underwent his second surgery in as many seasons last June to repair a torn right Achilles' tendon, he was never expected to be ready to go for the start of the upcoming season. To that end, Atlanta's decision to officially rule him out for the next two months comes as little surprise, but Soroka said Wednesday that he's optimistic he'll be ready to pitch at some point during the second half of the season, according to Mark Bowman of MLB.com. Soroka has since been cleared to resume running and throwing, but he has yet to get back on the mound.
Soroka underwent surgery on his Achilles tendon this week that Atlanta manager Brian Snitker said was successful, McClain Baxley of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. The right-hander first tore the tendon last August, but his initial rehab process went far from smoothly as he dealt with a sore shoulder before needing a cleanup procedure on the tendon in mid-May and then tearing it again June 24. Having undergone three surgeries on his Achilles in less than a year, it's impossible to predict what the timeline for Soroka's recovery will be, both because of the risk of further issues and the fact that the team will be extra cautious with him.
Soroka suffered a complete re-tear of his Achilles tendon Thursday and will require season-ending surgery. Soroka felt a pop in his right Achilles while walking to the clubhouse Thursday, and an MRI revealed that he will miss the rest of the current campaign. The right-hander underwent surgery on his Achilles tendon in late May, but he had resumed throwing exercises before aggravating the injury. A timetable for Soroka's return will be established after he undergoes surgery next week, but he could be sidelined until July of 2022, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.
