Julio Teheran pitched well on Friday, limiting the Phillies to just one run (none earned) on seven hits over seven innings.
Teheran was lit up for six runs by the Pirates in his last start, but he took Taylor Swift's advice and shook it off against the Phillies. While he did walk three (against four strikeouts) and serve up seven hits, the only run to score came home on a Cesar Hernandez single in the fifth inning. Teheran will carry a 4.60 ERA and 1.41 WHIP into a Wednesday afternoon road start against the Brewers next time he toes the rubber. Jul 3 - 10:30 PM

Julio Teheran allowed nine hits and six runs over six innings in Saturday's loss to the Pirates.

It was a disappointing setback after Teheran allowed one hit over seven innings his last time out. It's been that kind of year for the right-hander, who is now 5-4 with a 4.94 ERA and 1.40 WHIP. An attractive matchup with the Phillies is on tap for Friday, but who knows which Teheran will show up for that one.
Jun 27 - 8:30 PM

Julio Teheran earned his fifth victory of the season on Sunday, allowing just one hit over seven shutout innings against the Mets.

Teheran also allowed a pair of base on balls while striking out five on the impressive afternoon. He needed to be every bit that good, as Matt Harvey surrendered just one run on the other side of the diamond. Teheran has been a major disappointment after his terrific 2014 campaign, compiling a 4.67 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and 69/32 K/BB ratio in 88 2/3 innings. He'll look to carry over this strong outing when he faces the Pirates in Pittsburgh on Saturday.
Jun 21 - 7:41 PM

Julio Teheran was lit up for six runs on 13 hits and a walk over 6 1/3 frames in Tuesday's loss to the Red Sox.

Teheran settled in after a two-run first inning, but Boston then got to him with three runs in the sixth and another in the seventh. He struck out just three on the day and the 13 base knocks he gave up were a career high. It's been rough sledding this year for Teheran, whose ERA now sits at a season-high 5.07. He'll try to bounce back this weekend versus the Mets.
Jun 16 - 7:57 PM

Julio Teheran pitched well in earning a no-decision during Thursday's 6-4, 11-inning loss to the Padres, scattering four hits over seven innings and surrendering four runs.

Teheran struck out seven and walked three in the contest. The Padres got to him with an RBI single by Derek Norris in the first inning, but Teheran shut them down over the next six frames. After loading the bases with nobody out to start the eighth, Teheran was pulled from the contest. All three of the runners he put on would score in the frame. This is the second straight start in which Teheran has been hit with a few runs in the later innings. While the runs obviously count regardless of when they are scored, owners should be encouraged, as he's not getting hit hard throughout the game. Teheran holds a 4.78 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 61/30 K/BB ratio over 65 1/3 innings. He'll try to continue his recent trend of quality pitching when he heads to Fenway to face off with the Red Sox in his next start.
Jun 11 - 4:55 PM

Julio Teheran pitched well in a no-decision against the Pirates on Saturday, allowing four runs on five hits over 7 1/3 innings.

Teheran held a 4-2 lead entering the eighth inning, but after allowing a pair of one-out singles, he was lifted for Jim Johnson, who promptly served up a two-run single to Gregory Polanco which tied the game and prevented Teheran from picking up his fifth win of the season. Four runs might not look great, but Teheran pitched well through seven innings before things slipped away from him. He now holds a 4.87 ERA, 1.45 WHIP and 54/27 K/BB ratio over 68 1/3 innings. An afternoon home start against the Padres is up next for the 24-year-old right-hander.
Jun 6 - 10:09 PM

Julio Teheran gave the Braves a quality start against the Giants on Sunday, allowing three runs on four hits over six innings.

Teheran couldn't always find the strike zone--he walked four--but he pitched decently in earning a no-decision. In addition to the four walks, he struck out one. Brandon Belt and Brandon Crawford hit back-to-back solo home runs in the second inning off of Teheran, who didn't allow further damage until the open of the seventh inning when a run came in after he left the game. With the quality start, the right-hander is pitching to a 4.87 ERA, 1.54 WHIP and 49/26 K/BB ratio in 61 innings. He'll face the Pirates in his next start.
May 31 - 7:13 PM

Julio Teheran was bruised badly by the Dodgers, allowing eight runs in 4 1/3 innings as the Braves were shut out 8-0 on Tuesday.

The Dodgers peppered right field with hits in a six-run fourth inning. Adrian Gonzalez tacked on two more with an opposite-field home run in the fifth. Teheran allowed 10 hits in total with three walks and one strikeout. It appeared the right-hander was figuring things out as three of his previous four May starts had gone well, but Tuesday's outing brings his ERA back up to 4.91 with a 1.56 WHIP and a 48/22 K/BB ratio in 55 innings. Teheran will vie for redemption in San Francisco against the Giants.
May 27 - 12:57 AM

Julio Teheran held the Brewers to one run and two hits over seven innings in a victory Thursday.

Teheran struck out eight, besting his previous season high by two. He's now 3-0 with a 1.82 ERA in his four home stats this season, compared to 1-1 with a 5.88 ERA in five starts on the road. We wouldn't read too much into it, though.
May 21 - 10:26 PM

Julio Teheran yielded two runs (one earned) over 5 2/3 innings in a no-decision against the Marlins on Friday.

He struck out five. Teheran gave up nine hits (including a home run to Giancarlo Stanton) and a walk, so the Marlins had chances to break it open, but they weren't able to capitalize. The 24-year-old has yet to complete seven innings in a start this season and owns a disappointing 4.33 ERA on the year. Fantasy owners will have to hope that progress is on the way.
May 15 - 11:11 PM

Julio Teheran surrendered six earned runs in five innings Saturday as the Braves fell to the Nationals.

Teheran escaped with a no-decision because the Nats didn't seal the deal until the bottom of the ninth inning, when Bryce Harper blasted a walkoff two-run homer. Teheran was lit up for 10 hits and he walked three. The 24-year-old right-hander has a rough 4.74 ERA, 1.58 WHIP, and 34/17 K/BB ratio in 38 innings this season.
May 9 - 7:36 PM

Julio Teheran got the win on Sunday after shutting out the Reds over six innings of work.

And with that, Teheran notched his first terrific outing since his Opening Day start back on April 6. It's been a tough start to the season for Teheran, who limited the Reds to three hits and a pair of walks while striking out six. The right-hander lowered his ERA to 3.82, and carries a 1.42 WHIP with a 28/14 K/BB ratio in 33 innings. Teheran will look to keep it going in his next start on the road against the Nationals.
May 3 - 4:16 PM

Julio Teheran's struggles continued in a no-decision on Tuesday, giving up seven runs (three earned) to the Nationals over 5 2/3 innings.

Teheran limited the Nationals to two runs over the first four innings and enjoyed a 10-2 lead, but was hurt by a four-run fifth inning. Denard Span led off with a double, and Alberto Callaspo committed a fielding error to put runners on first and third. The Nats plated a run on a Jayson Werth sacrifice fly and Jose Lobaton later slugged a three-run home run. Overall, Teheran gave up 10 hits, walked none, and struck out four. He'll try to improve on his 4.67 ERA, 1.56 WHIP, and 22/12 K/BB ratio over 27 innings in his next start at home against the Reds.
Apr 28 - 11:13 PM

Julio Teheran picked up the loss after yielding four runs in 4 1/3 innings to the Mets on Thursday.

Teheran struggled with his control, walking the bases loaded with one out in the first inning before Daniel Murphy cleared them with a double. Teheran settled down from there before tiring in the fifth. He put two runners on with one out in the fifth before departing. Overall, he gave up three hits, walked five, and struck out five. Control has been an issue for the right-hander, as has his diminished ability to miss bats and an inability to pitch deep into games. Teheran has a 4.64 ERA, a 1.50 WHIP, and an 18/12 K/BB ratio in 21 1/3 innings. He'll try to turn things around in next week's home start versus the Nationals.
Apr 23 - 5:13 PM

Julio Teheran was hit hard in a no-decision against the Jays on Friday, surrendering five runs on seven hits over his five frames.

Teheran punched out four while walking a pair on the afternoon. All of the damage against him came via the long ball, with Devon Travis, Russell Martin and Josh Donaldson taking him deep, Donaldson completing the feat twice. The ace of the Braves staff, Teheran will look to improve upon a 3.71 ERA and 1.41 WHIP when he does battle against the Mets in New York on Thursday.
