ATLANTA (AP) Atlanta right-hander Michael Soroka, who posted an 8.38 ERA in two starts in his comeback from two right Achilles tendon tears, was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett on Monday.

The move came after Soroka allowed five runs and seven hits in 3 2/3 innings in Atlanta's 8-5 win at Arizona on Sunday. All of Soroka's runs allowed came with two outs. After the game, he said: “That's not quite me.”

Soroka, an All-Star as a rookie in 2019, was Atlanta's opening day starter in 2020 before suffering his first Achilles tendon tear early in the season. He needed a follow-up procedure before suffering a second tear in 2021.
