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.
May 25 - 9:51 PM

Julio Teheran spun a complete-game shutout, giving up just six hits and two walks, in the Braves' 5-0 win over the Brewers on Tuesday.

Teheran allowed just two extra-base hits, both Jonathan Lucroy doubles, while striking out eight in the victory. He entered the ninth inning at 109 pitches, and Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez showed confidence in the right-hander in letting him finish what he started. After allowing two singles in the ninth, Teheran dug deep to get Rickie Weeks and Carlos Gomez swinging to end the game. He finished at 128 pitches thrown. It was his second shutout of 2014. Teheran has been absolutely brilliant all season -- the win lowered his ERA to 1.92 and WHIP to 0.95 in 10 starts. He'll look to keep the potent Rockies offense at bay on Sunday.
May 20 - 10:26 PM

Julio Teheran had his worst outing of the year Wednesday, giving up five runs -- four earned -- in 3 1/3 innings against the Giants.

It looked like Teheran wouldn't even make it through one. He appeared to be dealing with a blister or similar finger problem early on, and he didn't finish the first until retiring Madison Bumgarner with his 41st pitch of the inning. Even at that point, it seemed iffy that he'd come back out. However, he returned and pitched OK for a couple of innings before getting yanked in the fourth. Hopefully, whatever was going on is all better next week.
May 14 - 7:38 PM

Julio Teheran limited the Cubs to one run and one hit in eight innings in a no-decision Friday.

It's not easy for Braves starters to win games these days. Teheran is 0-1 in his last four starts, even though he's allowed five runs over 30 innings in that span. He's just 2-2 for the year despite a brilliant 1.71 ERA and even more impressive 0.81 WHIP.
May 10 - 12:20 AM

Julio Teheran allowed three earned runs in seven innings Saturday in the Braves' loss to the Giants.

Teheran struck out seven, issued no walks, and surrendered only four hits. But three of those hits were homers and he got just one run of support from the Atlanta offense. Teheran will hope for better luck next week against the Cubs. He owns a gorgeous 1.88 ERA and 0.88 WHIP on the young season.
May 3 - 10:11 PM

Julio Teheran was terrific again Sunday but took a no-decision for the second straight start, throwing eight scoreless innings against the Reds.

Teheran was matched zero for zero by Johnny Cueto, leaving him with nothing to show for his strong outing. The right-hander gave up just three hits while walking two and striking out five in the start. He'll carry a 1.47 ERA, 0.93 WHIP and 2-1 record into his start Saturday against the Giants.
