Julio Teheran gave up six runs over five innings in a no decision vs. the Marlins on Sunday.
It all started off well enough for Teheran with three scoreless innings, but things fell apart for the right-hander when he allowed six runs in the fourth, with four of them scoring on a grand slam by Lewis Brinson. Things have been hot and cold with Teheran in 2018, and this would fall in the latter category as it raises his ERA to 4.17 and his WHIP to 1.24 on the season. We’ll see him back on the mound on Saturday against Boston. May 20 - 5:27 PM

Julio Teheran didn't pitch terribly well but got a win Monday, anyway, allowing four runs over six innings in the Braves' 6-5 victory over the Cubs.

Teheran only gave up four hits on the day, but two of them were two-run homers and he also walked three batters and struck out a season-low one. The right-hander has been mostly good this season, though, aside from occasional control problems. Teheran will have a juicy matchup this weekend against the Marlins, although it's at home, where he's struggled.
May 14 - 6:59 PM

Julio Teheran fanned seven batters while firing six scoreless innings to earn a 5-2 win over the Rays on Wednesday.

He sprinkled just four hits and did not issue a walk in the gem outing. Teheran is one of the major reasons why the Braves have been surprisingly good this year. He improves to 3-1 with a 3.14 ERA and 1.16 WHIP after eight starts. He has 42 strikeouts and 18 walks in 43 innings pitched. He is scheduled for two starts next week, against the Cubs and Marlins.
May 9 - 11:29 PM

Julio Teheran blanked the Mets for seven innings to pick up a win Thursday.

Teheran, who left his last start with trapezius tightness, moved to 2-1 with a 3.65 ERA this season. He's pitched 14 scoreless innings against the Mets while allowing 15 runs in 23 innings against the rest of the league. Next up is a start against Tampa Bay.
May 3 - 4:13 PM

Julio Teheran (trapezius) said Saturday that he plans to make his next scheduled start.

He was able to do some light throwing on Saturday and came away from the session feeling okay after leaving Friday's start due to tightness in his right upper trapezius. The Braves will wait to make a decision on his status for his next start, but barring any setbacks he should be good to go.
Apr 28 - 3:54 PM

Julio Teheran was forced to leave Friday's start against the Phillies after three innings due to right upper trapezius tightness.

Teheran threw just 43 pitches before departing, allowing three runs on two hits and two walks. While it's difficult to speculate, it wouldn't be surprising if this was something that led to a trip to the disabled list.
Apr 27 - 8:53 PM

Julio Teheran fired off seven innings of scoreless ball while taking a no-decision in Saturday's win over the Mets.

Teheran and Jacob deGrom were locked in a scoreless pitcher's duel over the first seven innings of the contest. While neither man would break, the Braves bullpen proved fallible after Teheran exited stage left. But so too did the Mets' bullpen, which allowed a late comeback by the home team after New York took a 3-0 lead in the top of the eighth inning. Teheran struck out six and walked one on the evening. This makes three consecutive outings in which the 27-year-old right-hander has surrendered two or fewer runs while lasting six or more innings. His ERA still sits at 4.00 on the season, but he's clearly taking steps in the right direction. He'll try to keep it going in a road start against the Reds next time he takes to the rubber.
Apr 21 - 10:28 PM

Julio Teheran pitched six innings of one-run ball against the Phillies to pick up his first win of the year on Monday.

Teheran has turned in back-to-back quality starts after giving up nine runs over eight innings in his first two outings. He struck out five and allowed four homers in his first two starts, which were at home against the Phillies and Nationals. He's faced the same two opponents in his last two starts and struck out nine and allowed one homer. Dating back to last year, he seems spooked by SunTrust Park, which definitely favors left-handed power hitters. But tonight's outing in Atlanta certainly gave off some positive vibes.
Apr 16 - 10:56 PM

Julio Teheran took a hard-luck loss after allowing two runs in six innings Monday against the Nationals.

Teheran remains winless on the season, even though the Braves totaled eight runs in his first start and 13 in his second. He pitched well for the first time tonight, but he was up against peak Max Scherzer in this one. Teheran has a 7.07 ERA overall.
Apr 9 - 11:50 PM

Julio Teheran was shelled in a no-decision against the Nationals on Tuesday, allowing five runs on six hits in only 2 1/3 innings.

The right-hander also issued three free passes while striking out two. His struggle was keeping the ball in the yard on Tuesday, giving up home runs to Bryce Harper, Ryan Zimmerman and opposing pitcher A.J. Cole. He'll try to put this behind him and get back on track when he takes on the Nationals again in Washington on Monday.
Apr 3 - 11:05 PM

Julio Teheran allowed four runs in 5 2/3 innings in a no-decision Thursday against the Phillies.

Control proved to be an issue for Teheran in this one, as he walked three and hit a batter while also allowing four hits. Teheran had a strong spring and the Phillies lineup is more potent than many probably realize, so this line can be taken with a grain of salt. However, Teheran struggled all of last year as well, so it can't be written off, either. Another tough test awaits Wednesday when the Nationals visit a SunTrust Park that wasn't kind to Teheran last year.
Mar 30 - 12:35 AM

Julio Teheran allowed two runs on three hits in five innings during Saturday's Grapefruit League game against the Yankees.

He struck out five and walked just one, but served up solo bombs to Aaron Hicks and Ryan McBroom. Teheran has been on a roll through the spring schedule, now rocking a 1.40 ERA after six starts. The 27-year-old seems poised to improve upon his 2017 campaign that saw him slump to an 11-13 record and 4.49 ERA in 32 starts.
Mar 24 - 6:20 PM

Julio Teheran pitched 6 2/3 scoreless and combined on a four-hit shutout of the Blue Jays on Monday.

Teheran turned in his best outing in a strong spring right after being named the Braves' Opening Day starter. He has a 0.87 ERA in 20 2/3 innings, though that isn;t anything all that new for him. In the previous five springs, he had ERAs of 1.04, 1.80, 2.01 and 2.81 (with a poor 8.00 also mixed in).
Mar 19 - 5:41 PM

Julio Teheran has been named the Braves' Opening Day starter.

Teheran was the obvious choice for manager Brian Snitker despite struggling to a 4.49 ERA, 1.37 WHIP, and 151/72 K/BB ratio in 188 1/3 innings (32 starts) last season. That's the state of the Braves' current rotation. Teheran will take the mound March 29 at home against the visiting Phillies.
Mar 19 - 12:41 PM

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.
