Julio Teheran twirled eight shutout innings, striking out seven, but settled for a no-decision Saturday against the Mets.
Teheran and Jacob deGrom were both excellent, and neither was still around when the Mets won in the 11th inning. The 25-year-old gave up just five hits, all singles, without issuing a walk on the evening, his second consecutive scoreless start. He's been nothing short of terrific this year, posting a 2.46 ERA, 0.89 WHIP and 99/24 K/BB ratio over 106 innings of work, but he's just 3-7 to show for it. Teheran will try to get back in the win column Thursday against the Marlins. Jun 25 - 11:00 PM

Jim Bowden of ESPN and SiriusXM reports that the Red Sox have inquired on Julio Teheran and Arodys Vizcaino.

While Bowden notes that the Red Sox and Braves "really do match up well for a potential blockbuster type deal," he cautions that "there is no traction to a trade at this time." Teheran is surely going to be one of the hottest names involved in trade rumors next month, as he's put up a 2.66 ERA, 0.91 WHIP and 92/24 K/BB ratio across 98 innings this season. He's under control cheaply through 2020, though, so the Braves might not be in a rush to move him. Vizcaino has been one of the best relievers in baseball with a 2.01 ERA and 44/15 K/BB ratio over 31 1/3 frames. He's under team control through 2018.

Julio Teheran was almost perfect in Sunday's 6-0 win over the Mets, allowing just one hit in a complete game shutout.

Teheran struck out seven and did not walk a batter. The lone hit he allowed came when Michael Conforto notched a single in the third inning. And that was it. Teheran finished the game having thrown 120 pitches (82 strikes). The 25-year-old right-hander might hold a dismal 3-7 record, but that mark is deceiving. For the season as a whole, he boasts a strong 2.66 ERA, 0.91 WHIP and 92/24 K/BB ratio across 98 innings. He will have a chance to silence these same Mets in his next scheduled start.

Julio Teheran yielded three runs while striking out eight across seven innings in a loss to the Reds on Tuesday.

Teheran allowed a walk, single and three-run homer to Jay Bruce in the first inning. He permitted just one baserunner the rest of the way, but it was too late at that point with the Braves' offense doing nothing. Teheran is now 2-7 on the season in spite of a 2.93 ERA, 0.99 WHIP and 85/24 K/BB ratio over 89 frames. He'll get the Mets on the road on Sunday.
Jun 14 - 10:57 PM

Julio Teheran turned in a strong effort in Wednesday's 4-2 win over the Padres, hurling eight innings of two-run ball while striking out eight.

Teheran issued just one walk on the afternoon. Both runs to score on his watch came via solo home runs, both off the bat of Wil Myers, who crunched the solo shots in the fourth and sixth innings. For the season, Teheran holds a 2.85 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 77/23 K/BB ratio over 82 innings. Next time he toes the rubber, he will be facing off with the Reds in a home start.
Jun 8 - 6:48 PM

Julio Teheran was handed his fifth loss of the season on Sunday, surrendering three runs on five hits over 5 1/3 innings.

Teheran walked three and struck out three in the ballgame. He had been locked in a pitcher's duel with Tom Koehler until a two-run homer by Derek Dietrich broke the game open in the sixth inning. While he has only won once, Teheran owns a sparkling 2.77 ERA and 1.07 WHIP through 68 1/3 innings. He'll take on the Dodgers his next time out in Los Angeles on Friday.
May 29 - 9:39 PM

Julio Teheran struck out a career-best 12 batters over seven innings Tuesday, allowing one run, but still didn't factor in the decision against the Brewers.

Teheran gave up just three hits, one being a Ryan Braun solo homer, without walking a batter, but the Braves weren't able to muster much offense against Brewers starter Jimmy Nelson either. It's been that kind of year for Teheran, who is just 1-4 but owns a stellar 2.57 ERA, 1.03 WHIP, and 59/17 K/BB ratio over 63 innings of work. The 25-year-old will next take on the Marlins on Sunday.
May 24 - 10:22 PM

Julio Teheran breezed through 7 2/3 scoreless innings on Wednesday against the Pirates, striking out three and walking no one.

Teheran was on cruise control all night, only allowing the Pirates to advance to second base twice through the eighth frame. He continues to avoid the regression that his 3.72 FIP suggests is on the horizon -- though it appears he’s doing so with an increased focus on pounding the zone and inducing ground balls. His 44 percent ground-ball rate is a career high and his walk rate has dropped to under 3.00 BB/9 for the first time since 2014. Teheran now owns a 2.73 ERA in 56 innings and gets the Brewers at home next Tuesday.
May 18 - 9:49 PM

Julio Teheran only surrendered two runs (one earned) in seven innings, but took the tough-luck loss versus the Royals on Friday.

Teheran's bounce-back season has been one of the more unheralded stories of the young season. He has a 3.17 ERA in 48 1/3 innings, but one wouldn't expect that to be the case with his 0-4 record. The problem is that the Braves are only providing Teheran with two runs of offensive support per start. He'll try to pick up his first win against the Pirates on the road.
May 13 - 11:41 PM

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

Teheran was largely good, giving up five hits and two walks while striking out five, but he needed 101 pitches to get through his five innings of work. As such, he left before factoring in the decision. Teheran still doesn't have a win in 2016, remaining 0-3 with a much more respectable 3.48 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 39/14 K/BB ratio over 41 1/3 innings. He'll continue looking for that elusive first win Friday at the Royals in an interleague matchup.
May 7 - 11:20 PM

Julio Teheran will start for the Braves on Sunday after Saturday's game against the Cubs was postponed due to rain.

The Braves have yet to announce what they will do with Monday's scheduled starter as they could Matt Wisler (who was scheduled to pitch Sunday), or stick with Mike Foltynewicz who was expected to be recalled to start on Monday in place of Bud Norris.
Apr 30 - 11:49 AM

Julio Teheran didn't deserve it but picked up a loss anyway Monday, tossing seven frames of one-run ball against the Red Sox.

It was Teheran's best outing of 2016, as he struck out a season-high eight on the night. The right-hander made one big mistake in the seventh inning and Jackie Bradley made him pay with a solo homer. Teheran will carry a 4.60 ERA into this weekend's start against the Cubs.
Apr 25 - 10:23 PM

Julio Teheran faltered down the stretch, ultimately leaving after just 5 1/3 innings against the Dodgers on Wednesday, and was saddled with two earned runs on six hits after the bullpen served up a homer in the sixth.

It was a questionable decision to lift Teheran after allowing a one-out single in the sixth inning. The right-hander had only thrown 75 pitches; however, manager Fredi Gonzalez felt more comfortable with a lefty going up against Dodgers’ slugger Adrian Gonzalez in a close contest. That promptly backfired and left many wondering if Teheran should’ve been left in the game, in what was proving to be his best outing of the year. He walked no one and struck out three, lowering his ERA to 5.64.
Apr 20 - 11:16 PM

Julio Teheran will start Wednesday against the Dodgers.

Teheran was expected to move up a day to pitch Tuesday after Matt Wisler was forced to pitch in relief over the weekend, but Williams Perez will make the start instead. Wisler will start Thursday.
Apr 19 - 2:30 PM

Julio Teheran surrendered six runs in seven innings Thursday against the Nationals.

It could have been a much better outing if the Nationals hadn't just missed turning an inning-ending double play on Stephen Strasburg's bunt attempt in the third. Bryce Harper went on to hit a grand slam in the frame. Teheran allowed just six hits and one walk in the game, but he couldn't strand those runners.
