Julio Teheran moved to 3-0 this spring after allowing two runs in five innings Wednesday against the Phillies.
The runs were the first allowed by Teheran in four starts and 14 innings this spring. Grapefruit League success is nothing new for Teheran, though; this will likely be the fifth time in six years he's posted a sub-3.00 ERA in March. Mar 14 - 4:39 PM

Julio Teheran turned in four scoreless frames in a 3-1 Grapefruit League win over the Yankees on Friday.

He struck out two batters, didn't issue a walk and surrendered just two singles. Teheran has been marvelous this spring, not allowing a single run through his first three starts. He is looking like a good bet to beat the disappointing 11-13 record and 4.49 ERA he delivered in 32 starts a year ago.
Mar 9 - 10:02 PM

Julio Teheran rattled off three shutout innings in Saturday's 9-2 Grapefruit League win over the Cardinals.

He punched out three batters, walked one and allowed two base hits -- both singles. Teheran has yet to allow a run this spring. He went 11-13 with a 4.49 ERA in 32 starts last year. It was an uncharacteristically poor season for him, as indicated by his 3.59 career ERA in 1009 2/3 innings. He will hope for better results with the up-and-coming Braves this year.
Mar 3 - 6:18 PM

Despite giving up two hits and two walks, Julio Teheran pitched a pair of scoreless innings for the win as the Braves edged the Nationals 2-1 on Monday.

He struck out none. Teheran has traditionally been a strong spring pitcher, posting sub-3.00 ERAs four of the last five Grapefruit League seasons. From a fantasy perspective, expectations are as low for him as they've ever been. He's not hopeless, but an exceptional March wouldn't add much to his case.
Feb 26 - 4:26 PM

Julio Teheran allowed five runs on eight hits over six innings in a season-ending loss to the Marlins on Thursday.

It was a fittingly disappointing end to a disappointing season for Teheran, who closes the book on 2017 with an 11-13 record, 4.49 ERA and 1.37 WHIP over 32 starts. Still just 26 years old, there's plenty of reason for optimism that this year will be remembered as an exception, and not the new norm; Teheran, after all, entered the year in the discussion as a top-25 starter in all of baseball. A team-friendly contract could make him an attractive buy-low candidate for a club this winter, but there's no indication the Braves are giving up on him any time soon.

Julio Teheran allowed two runs -- one earned -- over seven innings in a no-decision Saturday against the Phillies.

For the third consecutive start, Teheran registered a quality start, allowing seven hits and a walk over his seven innings. The Braves came back to take the lead after Teheran exited, though, denying him his 12th win. Even so, the 26-year-old is finishing strong after struggling for much of the first four months of the year. He'll carry a 4.39 ERA and 1.35 WHIP into his final start of the year, Thursday against the Marlins.

Julio Teheran yielded two earned runs over six innings Sunday in a loss to the Mets.

Teheran tallied seven strikeouts, but he walked four and got only one run of support from his offense in Atlanta's eventual 5-1 defeat. Teheran is now 11-12 on the season with a disappointing 4.52 ERA. He'll get the Phillies at home in his next scheduled start.

Julio Teheran recorded five strikeouts across seven shutout innings in Tuesday’s 8-0 victory over the Nationals.

Can the Nationals use the game-after-clinching excuse even though they had a day off Monday? They couldn’t get anything going against Teheran in this one, managing seven hits – six singles – and a couple walks while failing to dent the scoreboard. Teheran boasts a 2.31 ERA over his last six starts. He’ll go up against the Mets this weekend.

Julio Teheran struggled with his control and gave up three runs in five innings but came away with a win against the Rangers on Wednesday.

He issued five walks, hit a batter, served up a home run and burned 98 pitches in the brief outing. On the good side he struck out three batters and surrendered just five hits. The 26-year-old is somehow already in his seventh season in the majors and unfortunately this one has not lived up to the previous ones in terms of performance. He entered this season with a career 3.39 ERA but is currently sitting with a 4.77 ERA in 162 1/3 innings this year. Most of the blame can be pinned on the 30 longballs he has allowed in 28 starts.

Julio Teheran will have his next start pushed back to Wednesday against the Rangers.

Teheran was originally scheduled to start Tuesday, but pitching prospect Luiz Gohara will make his major league debut instead. It has been a trying year for Teheran, but he has allowed two earned runs or fewer in three out his last four starts. He'll be getting two extra days rest between starts this time around.

Starting the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Phillies, Julio Teheran surrendered just one run on five hits over 6 2/3 innings while picking up his ninth win of the season.

Teheran was magnificent in this one, with only an RBI double by Pedro Florimon in the second inning causing damage to the scoreboard on his watch. He struck out eight and walked one in the outing. This was the fourth consecutive start in which he has lasted at least six innings. The 26-year-old right-hander will put a 4.75 ERA and 1.35 WHIP on the line in a home start against the Rangers in his next scheduled outing.

Julio Teheran yielded two runs over 7 1/3 innings in a 5-2 win over the Rockies on Friday.

Finally, Teheran won a game at home. He actually hasn’t done that since way back on April 26. Teheran scattered five hits (including a solo homer to Mark Reynolds) while walking none and striking out four. This was his longest outing since June 20. Teheran will head back out on the road for his next start as the Braves travel to Philadelphia.

Julio Teheran allowed five runs -- four earned -- over six innings in a loss to the Reds on Saturday.

Teheran pitched pretty well through three innings, allowing just one run while striking out five, but things unraveled in the fourth. He finished with eight hits allowed and three walks issued, but seven strikeouts. The 26-year-old has shown flashes of some prior form -- he went seven scoreless his last time out -- but hasn't been able to do it with any consistency, sprinkling those starts in with clunkers and mediocre outings all season long. He'll carry a 5.02 ERA and 1.41 WHIP into a Friday matchup with the Rockies.
Sun, Aug 20, 2017 12:07:00 AM

Julio Teheran pitched seven scoreless innings and struck out eight in a no-decision versus the Rockies on Monday.

There was no run support to be had tonight, so Teheran remained winless in six starts since the All-Star break. He entered this one having allowed 16 runs over 14 2/3 innings in his last three starts.
Tue, Aug 15, 2017 01:13:00 AM

Julio Teheran, who left his last start with a thigh cramp, gave up five runs in five innings Tuesday in a loss to the Phillies.

It seems like Teheran has allowed five runs every time out this season, but that's not the case. In fact, this is actually the first time this season that he's given up exactly five runs. He'd allowed six. He'd allowed seven twice. He'd allowed eight and nine. But no five, not until tonight. He's 7-10 with a 5.25 ERA.
