Julio Teheran (lat) performed well in strength tests Saturday.
The hope is that Teheran -- a possible trade chip for the rebuilding Braves -- won't have to miss a rotation turn. He left his start Friday against the Rockies because of a minor lat strain. Look for a decision on Monday or Tuesday, after he throws a bullpen session. Jul 23 - 5:41 PM

Julio Teheran was diagnosed with a mild lat strain which caused him to leave Friday's start against the Rockies prematurely.

The right-hander thinks that the issue is minor and that he'll be able to avoid a trip to the disabled list, though a lot will depend on how he responds in the next couple of days.

Julio Teheran was removed from Friday's start against the Rockies in the fifth inning due to an apparent injury.

Teheran may have tweaked something in his side while attempting to reach for a ground ball. The Braves should have an update on his status shortly. Any sort of injury or time missed though would certainly be a major blow to the right-hander's trade value, with the deadline only a week away.

Julio Teheran picked up a no-decision in a fine performance against the Rockies on Sunday, tossing seven innings of shutout ball.

Teheran's was one of a number of remarkable pitching performances on Sunday. He struck out five, walked one and allowed just three hits on the afternoon. Despite this sharp work, no decision came his way, as Jon Gray essentially matched him pitch-for-pitch. This sterling outing just added to what has been a lovely campaign for Teheran, who will carry a 2.79 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and 112/26 K/BB ratio (125 2/3 innings) into a road outing against these same Rockies next time he toes the rubber. Given the way he has pitched this season, it wouldn't be a shock if he conquered Coors.
Jul 17 - 5:34 PM

The Braves rotation is set for this weekend's series against the Rockies, with Lucas Harrell (Friday), Michael Foltynewicz (Saturday) and Julio Teheran (Sunday) all scheduled to start.

The Braves needed to wait to see if Teheran would pitch in the All-Star Game before they officially locked their rotation into place. He did, indeed, toss a scoreless inning in the Midsummer Classic. With that recent performance in the books, the team will hold off on starting him until Sunday.
Jul 13 - 4:23 PM

Julio Teheran turned in a rocky effort Saturday against the White Sox, allowing nine hits and five runs over six innings of work.

He finished with two strikeouts and one walk. Teheran had his start pushed back because of a thigh infection and the layoff may have contributed to his lackluster outing on Saturday. The right-hander got tagged for two runs in the second inning and three more in the third. He settled down after that but the damage was already done. He'll head to San Diego next week as the Braves' lone All-Star representative.
Jul 9 - 5:19 PM

Julio Teheran (thigh) declared himself ready for Saturday's start against the White Sox.

Teheran was scratched from Wednesday's outing because of an infected thigh but is ready to go after throwing a successful side session on Thursday. The right-hander was named to his second All-Star team earlier this week. He's been the subject of recent trade rumors though we suspect it would take a massive haul for the Braves to part with him.
Jul 7 - 6:20 PM

Julio Teheran (thigh) could return to the Braves' rotation Saturday against the White Sox.

Teheran was scratched from his scheduled start Wednesday versus the Phillies due to an infection in his right thigh, brought on by an ingrown hair. Tyrell Jenkins is going to make his first MLB start instead. Teheran should be mostly healed by the time the Braves arrive in the south side of Chicago.
Jul 6 - 10:22 AM

Julio Teheran has been scratched from his scheduled start on Wednesday as he's being treated for an infection in his right thigh.

Tyrell Jenkins will get the ball in his place against the Phillies. The Braves are hopeful that Teheran will be able to return to the rotation and make a start at some point over the weekend in Chicago.
Jul 5 - 4:08 PM

Julio Teheran was charged with five runs in 6 2/3 innings Friday in a no-decision against the Marlins.

Teheran gave up a three-spot in the first inning, but settled down from there and saw his offense eventually take the lead back in the fifth. However, he gave up the tying run on a double from Christian Yelich in the seventh and Chris Withrow allowed an inherited runner to score to close the book on Teheran's night. Teheran gave up a season-high 11 hits and saw his ERA jump from 2.46 to 2.72. He’ll try to get back on track next week against the Phillies.
Jul 2 - 12:08 AM

A Braves official told Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports that the club is "99.9 percent" sure they will not trade Julio Teheran before the deadline.

The 99.9 percent number came after the official said outright that the team is "not trading Teheran." That the Braves are inclined to keep Teheran isn't a surprise, as he's under control cheaply through 2020 and the club would like him to start on Opening Day next season in their new stadium. However, he'll be sought after next month, regardless (the Red Sox are one team that's reportedly already inquired), and the Braves will surely be open to a deal if they get an offer to their liking.
Jun 30 - 10:57 AM

Julio Teheran will have his next start pushed back a day to Friday against the Marlins.

There is nothing wrong with the Braves' ace right-hander, they simply wanted to get him an extra day of rest while accommodating a potential return to the rotation for Mike Foltynewicz. Teheran owns a spectacular 2.46 ERA, 0.89 WHIP and 99/24 K/BB ratio across 106 innings on the season.
Jun 28 - 8:35 PM

Julio Teheran twirled eight shutout innings, striking out seven, but settled for a no-decision Saturday against the Mets.

Teheran and Jacob deGrom were both excellent, and neither was still around when the Mets won in the 11th inning. The 25-year-old gave up just five hits, all singles, without issuing a walk on the evening, his second consecutive scoreless start. He's been nothing short of terrific this year, posting a 2.46 ERA, 0.89 WHIP and 99/24 K/BB ratio over 106 innings of work, but he's just 3-7 to show for it. Teheran will try to get back in the win column Thursday against the Marlins.
Jun 25 - 11:00 PM

Jim Bowden of ESPN and SiriusXM reports that the Red Sox have inquired on Julio Teheran and Arodys Vizcaino.

While Bowden notes that the Red Sox and Braves "really do match up well for a potential blockbuster type deal," he cautions that "there is no traction to a trade at this time." Teheran is surely going to be one of the hottest names involved in trade rumors next month, as he's put up a 2.66 ERA, 0.91 WHIP and 92/24 K/BB ratio across 98 innings this season. He's under control cheaply through 2020, though, so the Braves might not be in a rush to move him. Vizcaino has been one of the best relievers in baseball with a 2.01 ERA and 44/15 K/BB ratio over 31 1/3 frames. He's under team control through 2018.
Jun 24 - 10:59 AM

Julio Teheran was almost perfect in Sunday's 6-0 win over the Mets, allowing just one hit in a complete game shutout.

Teheran struck out seven and did not walk a batter. The lone hit he allowed came when Michael Conforto notched a single in the third inning. And that was it. Teheran finished the game having thrown 120 pitches (82 strikes). The 25-year-old right-hander might hold a dismal 3-7 record, but that mark is deceiving. For the season as a whole, he boasts a strong 2.66 ERA, 0.91 WHIP and 92/24 K/BB ratio across 98 innings. He will have a chance to silence these same Mets in his next scheduled start.
