Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez admitted Sunday that Julio Teheran would most likely start for the Braves on Opening Day.
Barring an injury or anything crazy happening during the spring, Teheran seems the logical choice. The 24-year-old right-hander is coming off a breakout 2014 campaign where he compiled a 2.89 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 186/51 K/BB ratio en route to winning 14 games. Feb 22 - 5:03 PM

Julio Teheran ended the season with a winning record at 14-13 after allowing two runs in five innings and beating the Pirates on Wednesday.

Teheran, who is certainly used to poor run support, helped his own cause with two hits and two RBI tonight. Unfortunately, it took him 96 pitches to get through five, so he wasn't able to add to his total of 25 quality starts. Johnny Cueto (28), Felix Hernandez (27) and Jon Lester (26) are the only pitchers with more. Teheran finishes with a 2.89 ERA and a 1.06 WHIP, both improvements over his fine 2013 (3.20 ERA, 1.17 WHIP).

Julio Teheran yielded two runs over seven innings in a loss to the Mets on Friday.

He struck out six and walked one. His lone mistake was a two-run homer by Lucas Duda in the sixth inning, but it was enough to put him on the losing side. Teheran is now 13-12 with a 2.88 ERA and 180/48 K/BB ratio over a career-high 216 innings. He'll finish his season with a start against the Pirates next week.

Julio Teheran took a complete-game loss Saturday after allowing three unearned runs against the Rangers.

Teheran didn't allow a hit until Luis Sardinas singled with one out in the sixth inning. Justin Upton later made an error in the inning which opened the door for all three runs to score. Teheran gave up just three hits in all while walking one and striking out six. He has now thrown four complete games this season, yet has taken losses in two of them. He'll hope for better luck next week when he brings a 2.89 ERA into a start against the Mets.

Julio Teheran allowed four earned runs over 5 1/3 innings Sunday in a loss to the Marlins.

Teheran was cruising until the bottom of the fifth, when the Marlins scored the first run of the game on a Jarrod Saltalamacchia RBI single. Miami then poured on three runs -- all charged to Teheran -- in the top of the sixth. He'll carry a 13-11 record, 3.00 ERA, and 1.08 WHIP into his next start on the road versus the Rangers.

Julio Teheran yielded five runs -- two earned -- over 6 2/3 innings Monday in a loss to the Phillies.

Those three unearned runs were scored in the top of the seventh inning, when Domonic Brown reached base on an Andrelton Simmons fielding error and Ben Revere later hit a three-run triple. Teheran allowed five hits and walked four. He'll bring a 13-10 record, 2.90 ERA, and 1.08 WHIP into his next outing on the road against the Marlins.

Julio Teheran earned his 13th win of the season after holding the Mets to one run in 6 1/3 innings of work on Wednesday.

Neither side had much going for them offensively, though Teheran was helped by a pair of spectacular Andrelton Simmons defensive plays, including one to finish the bottom of the eighth inning which saved a run. Teheran allowed just three hits and a pair of walks while striking out four. He owns a 2.90 ERA, a 1.07 WHIP, and a 116/52 K/BB ratio. Teheran will look for his 14th win on Monday at home against the Phillies.

Julio Teheran earned his 12th win of the season after tossing six shutout innings against the Reds on Thursday.

Though Teheran was only at 87 pitches after six innings, the Braves were already up 8-0 and virtually assured of a victory. The right-hander limited the Reds to four hits, striking out three without issuing a walk. With the strong effort, Teheran was able to lower his ERA back under 3.00 at 2.96. He has a 1.08 WHIP and a 156/41 K/BB ratio as well. Teheran will toe the rubber in Queens against the Mets on Wednesday next.

Julio Teheran limited the A's to two runs over six innings Saturday in the Braves' 4-3 win.

Teheran walked three batters but he prevented major damage by holding the Oakland lineup to four hits. One of those hits was a Stephen Vogt two-run shot, which accounted for all of the A's runs. Teheran is 11-9 with a 3.06 ERA, 1.09 WHIP, and 153/41 K/BB ratio in 176 2/3 innings this season. He'll get the Reds in Cincinnati next time through the Braves' rotation.

Julio Teheran was charged with five runs in 7 1/3 innings Monday in a loss to the Braves.

Five singles resulted in three runs in the sixth. That was the only damage until the eighth, when Teheran was sent back out against the heart of the order. He walked Yasiel Puig, struck out Adrian Gonzalez and then gave up a double to Matt Kemp and was pulled with lesser hitters coming up. Unfortunately, the Braves went to their weaker relievers down 3-1 and both runners came around to score, making Teheran's outing look quite a bit worse than it was.
Mon, Aug 11, 2014 10:42:00 PM

Julio Teheran was lit up by the Mariners on Wednesday, giving up nine hits and six runs over six innings in a loss.

Teheran turned in his worst start in a month, serving up two home runs among his nine hits allowed. He walked two while striking out five in the loss. Teheran dropped to 10-8 but still owns a stellar 2.92 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 146/36 K/BB ratio over 163 1/3 innings. He's got another tough test on tap against the Dodgers on Tuesday, a team he limited to two runs in a complete-game loss last week.

Julio Teheran pitched a gem but had the misfortune of running into Clayton Kershaw on Thursday, allowing two runs and striking out nine over eight innings in a 2-1 loss.

Teheran exorcised some Dodgers Stadium demons; he coughed up six runs and eight hits over 2 2/3 innings in Game 3 of Atlanta's 13-6 loss in the NL division series last year. He has now yielded three runs or less and worked at least seven innings in seven of his past nine outings. Teheran brings a 10-7 record, 2.69 ERA and 1.04 WHIP into a scheduled start versus Seattle next week.

Julio Teheran allowed three runs over six innings Saturday in the Braves' 5-3 win over the Padres.

Teheran gave up a two-run double to Yasmani Grandal in the fourth inning and an RBI single to new Padres infielder Yangervis Solarte in the fifth. But the Atlanta offense backed him by scoring five runs on 11 hits. Teheran struck out five and did not issue a walk. He is 10-6 with a 2.71 ERA and 1.04 WHIP.
Sat, Jul 26, 2014 10:48:00 PM

Julio Teheran matched his career high with 11 strikeouts while pitching seven innings of one-run ball Monday against the Marlins.

It was his third career 11-strikeout game and fifth in double figures. He's allowed one or no runs in 10 of his 21 starts this year.
Mon, Jul 21, 2014 11:29:00 PM

Julio Teheran allowed four runs on seven hits over seven innings in a win over the Cubs on Sunday.

It wasn't Teheran's best start, as he allowed two home runs among the Cubs' seven hits, but it was good enough for his ninth win. Even with the mediocre start, it was a fantastic first half for the right-hander. Teheran owns a 2.71 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 116/30 K/BB ratio over 136 1/3 innings. He'll go to his first All-Star Game on Tuesday as a result of his strong season thus far.
