Julio Teheran struck out five and walked four while allowing three runs (one earned) over 6 1/3 innings in Saturday's win against the Mets.

Teheran was sailing along until the seventh inning, when he abruptly lost a feel for the strike zone. After a Lucas Duda single, Teheran walked back-to-back hitters and Alberto Callaspo promptly committed an error allowing a run to score. Teheran was pulled from the game after he plunked Travis d'Arnaud with the bases loaded. While that ugly inning will reign over the media conversation, Teheran had actually been pitching well before he turned into Wild Thing. He had a stellar WHIP of 1.081 in 221 innings last season and the ugly seventh should not be viewed as anything more than an aberration. Teheran will take a 2-0 record and 1.50 ERA into his next start against the Blue Jays.
Apr 11 - 10:34 PM

Julio Teheran earned the win on Opening Day, holding the Marlins to one run over six innings on Monday.

Teheran allowed eight hits, walked one, and struck out four, but was able to negotiate his way out of trouble for the most part. The right-hander was terrific for the Braves last season, finishing with a 2.89 ERA and a 186/51 K/BB ratio in 221 innings. He should once again rank among the top-15 or top-20 starters in 2015.
Apr 6 - 7:33 PM

Julio Teheran was pounded for seven runs in four innings by the Phillies on Wednesday.

According to the AJC's Dave O'Brien, Teheran said afterwards that it's the best he's felt all spring. We're not sure if that's supposed to be comforting or not. He gave up four homers on a day in which the wind wasn't all that much of a factor. For the spring, he has an 8.00 ERA in 18 innings, giving up 25 hits, walking eight and striking out 15. We're still not particularly worried about him, but with run support likely to be a major issue, he's not quite a top-10 NL-only pitcher for us.
Apr 1 - 4:14 PM

Julio Teheran held the Red Sox to two runs over 5 2/3 innings Friday in Atlanta's 4-2 win.

The game was called in the eighth after a brief rain delay. Teheran allowed five hits and four walks today, but he was able to pitch his way out of trouble against a lineup that included three regulars and several quality reserves. His spring ERA is down to 5.79.
Mar 27 - 4:30 PM

The Braves have named Julio Teheran their Opening Day starter.

He'll get the ball on April 6 in Miami. It's an obvious call after Teheran posted a 2.89 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 186/51 K/BB ratio across 221 innings last season. Wins could be hard to come by with the Braves in rebuilding mode, but the 24-year-old figures to again be an asset in three categories.
Mar 27 - 4:19 PM

Julio Teheran was lit up by the Blue Jays on Sunday, giving up seven runs -- six earned -- and nine hits in 3 1/3 innings.

Worse, it was against a split-squad lineup that included just three regulars. Still, one bad day isn't a huge concern. "He’s not sharp yet," manager Fredi Gonzalez told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. "The breaking ball was just kind of rolling today. He got himself in some hitters’ counts and those guys swing the bat pretty well. He got a lot of pitches, and we will just build on that for the next start."
Mar 15 - 5:09 PM

Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez admitted Sunday that Julio Teheran would most likely start for the Braves on Opening Day.

Barring an injury or anything crazy happening during the spring, Teheran seems the logical choice. The 24-year-old right-hander is coming off a breakout 2014 campaign where he compiled a 2.89 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 186/51 K/BB ratio en route to winning 14 games.
Feb 22 - 5:03 PM

Julio Teheran ended the season with a winning record at 14-13 after allowing two runs in five innings and beating the Pirates on Wednesday.

Teheran, who is certainly used to poor run support, helped his own cause with two hits and two RBI tonight. Unfortunately, it took him 96 pitches to get through five, so he wasn't able to add to his total of 25 quality starts. Johnny Cueto (28), Felix Hernandez (27) and Jon Lester (26) are the only pitchers with more. Teheran finishes with a 2.89 ERA and a 1.06 WHIP, both improvements over his fine 2013 (3.20 ERA, 1.17 WHIP).

Julio Teheran yielded two runs over seven innings in a loss to the Mets on Friday.

He struck out six and walked one. His lone mistake was a two-run homer by Lucas Duda in the sixth inning, but it was enough to put him on the losing side. Teheran is now 13-12 with a 2.88 ERA and 180/48 K/BB ratio over a career-high 216 innings. He'll finish his season with a start against the Pirates next week.

Julio Teheran took a complete-game loss Saturday after allowing three unearned runs against the Rangers.

Teheran didn't allow a hit until Luis Sardinas singled with one out in the sixth inning. Justin Upton later made an error in the inning which opened the door for all three runs to score. Teheran gave up just three hits in all while walking one and striking out six. He has now thrown four complete games this season, yet has taken losses in two of them. He'll hope for better luck next week when he brings a 2.89 ERA into a start against the Mets.

Julio Teheran allowed four earned runs over 5 1/3 innings Sunday in a loss to the Marlins.

Teheran was cruising until the bottom of the fifth, when the Marlins scored the first run of the game on a Jarrod Saltalamacchia RBI single. Miami then poured on three runs -- all charged to Teheran -- in the top of the sixth. He'll carry a 13-11 record, 3.00 ERA, and 1.08 WHIP into his next start on the road versus the Rangers.

Julio Teheran yielded five runs -- two earned -- over 6 2/3 innings Monday in a loss to the Phillies.

Those three unearned runs were scored in the top of the seventh inning, when Domonic Brown reached base on an Andrelton Simmons fielding error and Ben Revere later hit a three-run triple. Teheran allowed five hits and walked four. He'll bring a 13-10 record, 2.90 ERA, and 1.08 WHIP into his next outing on the road against the Marlins.

Julio Teheran earned his 13th win of the season after holding the Mets to one run in 6 1/3 innings of work on Wednesday.

Neither side had much going for them offensively, though Teheran was helped by a pair of spectacular Andrelton Simmons defensive plays, including one to finish the bottom of the eighth inning which saved a run. Teheran allowed just three hits and a pair of walks while striking out four. He owns a 2.90 ERA, a 1.07 WHIP, and a 116/52 K/BB ratio. Teheran will look for his 14th win on Monday at home against the Phillies.
Wed, Aug 27, 2014 10:10:00 PM

Julio Teheran earned his 12th win of the season after tossing six shutout innings against the Reds on Thursday.

Though Teheran was only at 87 pitches after six innings, the Braves were already up 8-0 and virtually assured of a victory. The right-hander limited the Reds to four hits, striking out three without issuing a walk. With the strong effort, Teheran was able to lower his ERA back under 3.00 at 2.96. He has a 1.08 WHIP and a 156/41 K/BB ratio as well. Teheran will toe the rubber in Queens against the Mets on Wednesday next.
