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.

Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports that the Braves may be willing to trade right-hander Julio Teheran.

Two rival executives that Rosenthal spoke to indicated that the Braves were "quite open" to the idea. The 24-year-old hurler is in the second year of a six-year, $32.4 million deal and would certainly require a premium haul if he is to be pried away.

Julio Teheran recorded a season-high 11 strikeouts but suffered a loss Wednesday, allowing three runs over seven innings versus the Dodgers.

Teheran was terrific for most of the day but suffered through a laborsome fifth inning that saw him yield four of his six hits and all three of his runs. It was another good home start for the righty, as he now holds a 2.37 ERA at Turner Field and 6.95 ERA everywhere else. He'll be on the road at Camden Yards the next time out.
Jul 22 - 3:14 PM

Julio Teheran was pulled after giving up two runs over 4 2/3 innings against the Cubs on Friday.

Teheran finished the first half with back-to-back strong starts, but he wasn't especially sharp Friday, allowing five hits while walking three and striking out five. He got the hook with runners at first and second in the fifth. It was his shortest start since May 26. He'll bring a 4.53 ERA into a start against the Dodgers next week.
Jul 17 - 11:12 PM

Julio Teheran will start Atlanta's first game out of the All-Star break on Friday against the Cubs.

He'll be followed, in order, by Manny Banuelos, Shelby Miller, Matt Wisler and Alex Wood. Williams Perez will return in a few weeks, but Atlanta hasn't decided if he'll be a starter or head to the bullpen upon his activation. That's a story for a different day, so don't change the channel. The 24-year-old Teheran is 6-4 with a 4.56 ERA, 1.36 WHIP, and 86/39 K/BB ratio through 108 2/3 innings.
Jul 11 - 2:20 PM

Julio Teheran allowed three earned runs over seven innings Wednesday in a no-decision versus the Brewers.

Teheran struck out eight batters and allowed only two hits, but those two hits were home runs. The 24-year-old right-hander stands 6-4 with a 4.56 ERA, 1.36 WHIP, and 86/39 K/BB ratio through 108 2/3 innings this season. He'll get the Cubs at home next week.
Jul 8 - 5:15 PM

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.
