Julio Teheran limited the A's to two runs over six innings Saturday in the Braves' 4-3 win.
Teheran walked three batters but he prevented major damage by holding the Oakland lineup to four hits. One of those hits was a Stephen Vogt two-run shot, which accounted for all of the A's runs. Teheran is 11-9 with a 3.06 ERA, 1.09 WHIP, and 153/41 K/BB ratio in 176 2/3 innings this season. He'll get the Reds in Cincinnati next time through the Braves' rotation. Aug 16 - 10:33 PM

Julio Teheran was charged with five runs in 7 1/3 innings Monday in a loss to the Braves.

Five singles resulted in three runs in the sixth. That was the only damage until the eighth, when Teheran was sent back out against the heart of the order. He walked Yasiel Puig, struck out Adrian Gonzalez and then gave up a double to Matt Kemp and was pulled with lesser hitters coming up. Unfortunately, the Braves went to their weaker relievers down 3-1 and both runners came around to score, making Teheran's outing look quite a bit worse than it was.
Aug 11 - 10:42 PM

Julio Teheran was lit up by the Mariners on Wednesday, giving up nine hits and six runs over six innings in a loss.

Teheran turned in his worst start in a month, serving up two home runs among his nine hits allowed. He walked two while striking out five in the loss. Teheran dropped to 10-8 but still owns a stellar 2.92 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 146/36 K/BB ratio over 163 1/3 innings. He's got another tough test on tap against the Dodgers on Tuesday, a team he limited to two runs in a complete-game loss last week.
Aug 6 - 6:38 PM

Julio Teheran pitched a gem but had the misfortune of running into Clayton Kershaw on Thursday, allowing two runs and striking out nine over eight innings in a 2-1 loss.

Teheran exorcised some Dodgers Stadium demons; he coughed up six runs and eight hits over 2 2/3 innings in Game 3 of Atlanta's 13-6 loss in the NL division series last year. He has now yielded three runs or less and worked at least seven innings in seven of his past nine outings. Teheran brings a 10-7 record, 2.69 ERA and 1.04 WHIP into a scheduled start versus Seattle next week.
Aug 1 - 12:49 AM

Julio Teheran allowed three runs over six innings Saturday in the Braves' 5-3 win over the Padres.

Teheran gave up a two-run double to Yasmani Grandal in the fourth inning and an RBI single to new Padres infielder Yangervis Solarte in the fifth. But the Atlanta offense backed him by scoring five runs on 11 hits. Teheran struck out five and did not issue a walk. He is 10-6 with a 2.71 ERA and 1.04 WHIP.
Jul 26 - 10:48 PM

Julio Teheran matched his career high with 11 strikeouts while pitching seven innings of one-run ball Monday against the Marlins.

It was his third career 11-strikeout game and fifth in double figures. He's allowed one or no runs in 10 of his 21 starts this year.
Jul 21 - 11:29 PM

Julio Teheran allowed four runs on seven hits over seven innings in a win over the Cubs on Sunday.

It wasn't Teheran's best start, as he allowed two home runs among the Cubs' seven hits, but it was good enough for his ninth win. Even with the mediocre start, it was a fantastic first half for the right-hander. Teheran owns a 2.71 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 116/30 K/BB ratio over 136 1/3 innings. He'll go to his first All-Star Game on Tuesday as a result of his strong season thus far.
Jul 13 - 7:38 PM

Julio Teheran was chased early by the Mets on Tuesday, allowing five runs on 11 hits over 3 1/3 innings in a loss.

Teheran had been really good in his previous four starts, so a clunker like Tuesday's is excusable. It was bad from the outset for the right-hander, as Curtis Granderson led off the game with a home run, and it didn't get much better as the game wore on. Teheran still owns a stellar 2.57 ERA and 1.03 WHIP in the aftermath of the start, and he'll almost certainly be better when he faces the Cubs at Wrigley Field on Sunday.
Jul 8 - 10:33 PM

Julio Teheran improved to 8-5, allowing one run over seven innings as the Braves defeated the Mets 3-1 on Wednesday.

Teheran is sliding into the NL Cy Young discussion just past the midpoint of the baseball season. The right-hander limited the Mets to four hits and three walks while striking out five, lowering his ERA to 2.29 in the process. He also carries an impressive 0.95 WHIP and a 108/26 K/BB ratio. Teheran will face the Mets again in his next start when the Braves will be in Queens, New York.
Jul 2 - 10:49 PM

Julio Teheran improved to 7-5, allowing two runs (one earned) over seven innings as the Braves defeated the Phillies 4-2 on Friday.

Teheran's fantastic season continues, as the right-hander limited the Phillies to six hits while striking out nine without issuing a free pass. It was his fifth walk-less start of the season, and he now carries a 2.34 ERA, a 0.95 WHIP, and a 103/23 K/BB ratio. He'll go up against the Mets at home in his next start.
Jun 27 - 10:26 PM

Julio Teheran allowed three earned runs over seven innings Saturday in a loss to the Nationals.

Teheran struck out 10 batters, but the Nationals plated runs in the third, sixth, and seventh innings and Atlanta's offense provided zero run support. Teheran will take a 6-5 record, 2.41 ERA, and 0.96 WHIP into his next start on the road against the Phillies.
Jun 21 - 10:04 PM

Julio Teheran allowed just one run over eight innings in a no-decision against the Phillies on Monday.

Teheran bounced back nicely after a rare drubbing by the Rockies in Coors Field last week. It's the 12th time in 15 starts this year that he's allowed two earned runs or fewer.
Jun 17 - 12:36 AM

Julio Teheran was lit up for seven earned runs in 6 1/3 innings Wednesday as the Braves fell to the Rockies.

Teheran entered the start with an MLB-leading 1.89 ERA. That mark was up to 2.41 by the time he was finished. Let's chalk it up to Coors Field and move along.
Jun 12 - 1:30 AM

Julio Teheran yielded two runs over 7 1/3 innings in Friday's 3-2 win over the Marlins.

Teheran entered Friday's outing with a 17-inning scoreless streak over his last two starts, but that came to an end with a long two-run homer from Giancarlo Stanton in the first inning. However, he held the Marlins off the board the rest of the way. Teheran struck out five batters and walked on in the victory and now owns a stingy 1.83 ERA through 12 starts. Only Chicago's Jeff Samardzija has a lower ERA.
May 30 - 10:22 PM

Julio Teheran struck out seven over six scoreless innings in a win over the Rockies on Sunday.

Teheran tossed a six-hit shutout his last time out, making Sunday's start merely good by his standards. He surrendered just four hits and a walk in the outing. Teheran is locked in this year, as he's now 4-3 with a 1.77 ERA and 0.94 WHIP in 11 starts. He'll see the Marlins in Miami on Friday.
