Julio Teheran delivered a dominant performance in his final start of the season on Friday, scattering five hits and a walk over six shutout frames in a victory over the Cardinals.
The right-hander struck out six in the impressive outing. While the final numbers on his 2015 season don't jump off the page (4.04 ERA, 1.31 WHIP), he finished his season on an extremely high note. Teheran posted a 1.62 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 32/16 K/BB ratio over 39 innings in his final six starts. He'll make for a nice bounceback candidate in next season's fantasy drafts. Oct 2 - 11:20 PM

Julio Teheran turned in a decent outing in Saturday's loss to the Marlins, allowing two runs on six hits over six innings.

Teheran did walk four over his six innings of work, but he managed to work around the occasional wildness. Both runs on his line scored when he served up a two-run homer to Justin Bour in the first inning. He'll bring a 4.16 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 165/72 K/BB ratio (over 194 2/3 innings) into his final start of the season, a home showdown with the Cardinals.
Sep 26 - 10:13 PM

Julio Teheran gave up a run over 8 1/3 innings to complete a sweep of the Phillies on Sunday.

Teheran lost a bid for a perfect game when Freddy Galvis led off the seventh inning with a single. He lost his bid for a shutout when he exited in the ninth inning with runners on first and second with one out. Reliever Peter Moylan would allow an inherited runner to score, taking Teheran out of the running for a win. Overall, the right-hander scattered five hits and a walk while striking out eight. He stands with a 4.20 ERA, a 1.30 WHIP and a 162/68 K/BB ratio over 188 2/3 innings. Teheran starts again next weekend in Miami against the Marlins.
Sep 20 - 4:15 PM

Julio Teheran struck out seven, allowing two runs over 5 2/3 innings in Tuesday's no-decision against the Blue Jays.

The right-hander was having a strong start before the sixth inning, when Justin Smoak hit a leadoff homer and Teheran was eventually yanked after allowing two baserunners with two outs. He gave up five hits and walked four in total. Teheran is still 10-7 after the no-decision, owning a 4.34 ERA and 1.33 WHIP through 30 starts. A more attractive date with the Phillies is on tap for Sunday.
Sep 15 - 10:18 PM

Julio Teheran dominated the Phillies in Wednesday's win, allowing only one run in seven innings.

The lone run came on a Cody Asche ground out following a Darnell Sweeney triple in the second inning. Teheran scattered four hits and a pair of walks while striking out four. Aside from his shelling against the Yankees on August 30, the right-hander has been much improved in the second half. Teheran now owns a 4.38 ERA with a 1.32 WHIP and a 147/63 K/BB ratio over 174 2/3 innings. He'll face the Blue Jays at home next.
Sep 9 - 10:05 PM

Julio Teheran held off the Nationals' attack in Friday's no-decision, surrendering just one run over six innings.

Bryce Harper socked a long solo home run off Teheran in the first inning, but it would be the only run the Nats scored with him on the mound. For the evening, he struck out four and walked four. There's rarely much excitement in a Teheran start and his numbers remain exceedingly average, as he now holds a 4.51 ERA and 1.34 WHIP. The 24-year-old right-hander will head out for a road showdown against the Phillies in his next outing.
Sep 4 - 10:44 PM

Julio Teheran was bombed for eight earned runs in 4 1/3 innings Sunday as the Braves fell to the Yankees.

Jacoby Ellsbury cranked a three-run homer in the second inning and Chase Headley and Stephen Drew both hit two-run shots in the third. It was one of the worst outings of the year for Teheran, who has mixed blowout losses with quality starts throughout his disappointing 2015. He'll get the Nationals on the road next.
Aug 30 - 5:29 PM

Julio Teheran went 7 1/3 innings, allowing three runs, to earn the win on Monday versus the Rockies.

The Rockies slugged a pair of solo home runs early, with Charlie Blackmon going yard in the first and Ben Paulsen doing the same in the second. Teheran threw up zeroes the rest of the way until the eighth inning, when he yielded an RBI single to Brandon Barnes before departing. All told, he gave up four hits and a walk while striking out five. The right-hander now has a 4.29 ERA, a 1.30 WHIP, and a 135/54 K/BB ratio over 157 1/3 innings. He'll match up with the Yankees at home in his next start.
Aug 24 - 10:18 PM

Julio Teheran allowed only one run over six innings but the Braves fell to the Padres on Wednesday.

It's the Braves' 10th straight loss to San Diego. Teheran yielded only four hits and a walk while striking out seven, but he left with the score tied and Atlanta's bullpen allowed the Padres to take the lead. Teheran will carry a 4.32 ERA into his next start at home against the Rockies.
Aug 19 - 6:29 PM

Julio Teheran racked up seven strikeouts on Friday as he hurled six innings of one-run ball in a victory over the Diamondbacks.

Teheran scattered just three hits and a pair of walks on the night. While he has been remarkably inconsistent on the season, he continues to show flashes of how dominant he can be, with Friday's start another prime example. He'll carry a 4.44 ERA and 1.35 WHIP into Wednesday's start against the Padres in San Diego.
Aug 14 - 10:46 PM

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman hears that the Braves could field offers for Julio Teheran over the offseason.

There was some talk prior to the trade deadline that they might consider moving Teheran. The timing would be odd, as they'd be selling low on the righty while he's in the midst of a down season. Plus, while the Braves have been shedding payroll, Teheran is under control relatively cheaply through 2020.
Aug 14 - 11:35 AM

Julio Teheran logged a quality start in a no-decision against the Marlins on Friday, allowing three runs on six hits over his 6 2/3 innings of work.

The right-hander struck out three and walked one in the ballgame. He held the Marlins scoreless through the first six innings, but they scratched out three in the seventh to take the lead and chase him from the ballgame. It continues to be a very disappointing season for Teheran, who owns a 4.57 ERA and 1.37 WHIP through 138 innings. He'll take on the Diamondbacks at home his next time out on Friday.
Aug 7 - 11:08 PM

Julio Teheran pitched seven innings of two-run ball on Sunday against the Phillies, earning his first win in five starts.

Teheran allowed an RBI single to Cody Asche in the second inning and another RBI single to Odubel Herrera in the fifth, accounting for the damage. He scattered eight hits, walked none, and struck out seven in what was his finest outing since his last win on July 3 -- also against the Phillies. Teheran now has a 4.59 ERA, a 1.39 WHIP, and a 113/49 k/BB ratio over 131 1/3 innings. He gets another good match-up this weekend, as he'll host the struggling Marlins.
Aug 2 - 5:24 PM

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that Julio Teheran's name is "not out there now" in trade talks.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports last week that the Braves were "quite open" to the idea of dealing Teheran, but they've apparently pulled him off the market. It would be an odd time to trade him, anyway, since he's having a disappointing season and Atlanta might not be able to get what he's worth.
Jul 31 - 9:32 AM

Julio Teheran served up five runs in four innings en route to a loss on Tuesday versus the Orioles.

Chris Davis did all of the damage, unloading for a three-run home run in the first inning and a two-run shot in the second. The right-hander allowed five hits and walked four while striking out four in the abbreviated outing. Though Teheran had pitched much better in July, his numbers are still quite poor as he stands with a 4.71 ERA, a 1.40 WHIP, and a 106/49 K/BB ratio over 124 1/3 innings. He'll attempt to rebound when he makes a road start against the Phillies next.
