The Braves said Soroka suffered the reinjury while walking to the clubhouse at Truist Park on Thursday. Soroka reported feeling a pop in his Achilles, and an MRI revealed the extent of the injury.
The 23-year-old is scheduled to undergo surgery in the next week.
Soroka has not pitched since initially suffering the injury Aug. 3 last season against the New York Mets. He underwent surgery in August then needed a follow-up procedure in May after suffering a setback.
The Braves’ Opening Day starter in 2020, Soroka is 15-6 with a 2.86 ERA over 37 starts for Atlanta since 2018. He was an All-Star and the National League Rookie of the Year runner-up in 2019.
