Atlanta Braves right-hander Mike Soroka’s season is over as he will undergo surgery to fix a torn Achilles tendon, the team announced Saturday.

This will be the second season-ending Achilles procedure for the pitcher Soroka, as he suffered “a complete re-tear of the tendon” while walking to the team’s clubhouse on Thursday.

The team said Soroka will require surgery, which will be scheduled within the week. He first tore his right Achilles tendon in the third inning of a 7-2 loss to the Mets at Truist Park in August 2020.

    • So sad man and the fact it happened while simply walking into the building tells you either that the rehab process was either rushed or not thorough enough or the surgery itself was mediocre at best. This far into rehab it should not go with that minimal amount of force.

  1. Heartbreaking. The guy worked his tail off the get back and gets the same injury. It reminds me of Tony Saunders who broke his arm pitching in 1999, worked his way back on the mound only to break his same arm again in his first outing in 2000. Makes you sick.
