Teheran struck out eight, besting his previous season high by two. He's now 3-0 with a 1.82 ERA in his four home stats this season, compared to 1-1 with a 5.88 ERA in five starts on the road. We wouldn't read too much into it, though. May 21 - 10:26 PM

Julio Teheran yielded two runs (one earned) over 5 2/3 innings in a no-decision against the Marlins on Friday.

He struck out five. Teheran gave up nine hits (including a home run to Giancarlo Stanton) and a walk, so the Marlins had chances to break it open, but they weren't able to capitalize. The 24-year-old has yet to complete seven innings in a start this season and owns a disappointing 4.33 ERA on the year. Fantasy owners will have to hope that progress is on the way.
May 15 - 11:11 PM

Julio Teheran surrendered six earned runs in five innings Saturday as the Braves fell to the Nationals.

Teheran escaped with a no-decision because the Nats didn't seal the deal until the bottom of the ninth inning, when Bryce Harper blasted a walkoff two-run homer. Teheran was lit up for 10 hits and he walked three. The 24-year-old right-hander has a rough 4.74 ERA, 1.58 WHIP, and 34/17 K/BB ratio in 38 innings this season.
May 9 - 7:36 PM

Julio Teheran got the win on Sunday after shutting out the Reds over six innings of work.

And with that, Teheran notched his first terrific outing since his Opening Day start back on April 6. It's been a tough start to the season for Teheran, who limited the Reds to three hits and a pair of walks while striking out six. The right-hander lowered his ERA to 3.82, and carries a 1.42 WHIP with a 28/14 K/BB ratio in 33 innings. Teheran will look to keep it going in his next start on the road against the Nationals.
May 3 - 4:16 PM

Julio Teheran's struggles continued in a no-decision on Tuesday, giving up seven runs (three earned) to the Nationals over 5 2/3 innings.

Teheran limited the Nationals to two runs over the first four innings and enjoyed a 10-2 lead, but was hurt by a four-run fifth inning. Denard Span led off with a double, and Alberto Callaspo committed a fielding error to put runners on first and third. The Nats plated a run on a Jayson Werth sacrifice fly and Jose Lobaton later slugged a three-run home run. Overall, Teheran gave up 10 hits, walked none, and struck out four. He'll try to improve on his 4.67 ERA, 1.56 WHIP, and 22/12 K/BB ratio over 27 innings in his next start at home against the Reds.
Apr 28 - 11:13 PM

Julio Teheran picked up the loss after yielding four runs in 4 1/3 innings to the Mets on Thursday.

Teheran struggled with his control, walking the bases loaded with one out in the first inning before Daniel Murphy cleared them with a double. Teheran settled down from there before tiring in the fifth. He put two runners on with one out in the fifth before departing. Overall, he gave up three hits, walked five, and struck out five. Control has been an issue for the right-hander, as has his diminished ability to miss bats and an inability to pitch deep into games. Teheran has a 4.64 ERA, a 1.50 WHIP, and an 18/12 K/BB ratio in 21 1/3 innings. He'll try to turn things around in next week's home start versus the Nationals.
Apr 23 - 5:13 PM

Julio Teheran was hit hard in a no-decision against the Jays on Friday, surrendering five runs on seven hits over his five frames.

Teheran punched out four while walking a pair on the afternoon. All of the damage against him came via the long ball, with Devon Travis, Russell Martin and Josh Donaldson taking him deep, Donaldson completing the feat twice. The ace of the Braves staff, Teheran will look to improve upon a 3.71 ERA and 1.41 WHIP when he does battle against the Mets in New York on Thursday.
Apr 17 - 10:33 PM

Julio Teheran struck out five and walked four while allowing three runs (one earned) over 6 1/3 innings in Saturday's win against the Mets.

Teheran was sailing along until the seventh inning, when he abruptly lost a feel for the strike zone. After a Lucas Duda single, Teheran walked back-to-back hitters and Alberto Callaspo promptly committed an error allowing a run to score. Teheran was pulled from the game after he plunked Travis d'Arnaud with the bases loaded. While that ugly inning will reign over the media conversation, Teheran had actually been pitching well before he turned into Wild Thing. He had a stellar WHIP of 1.081 in 221 innings last season and the ugly seventh should not be viewed as anything more than an aberration. Teheran will take a 2-0 record and 1.50 ERA into his next start against the Blue Jays.
Apr 11 - 10:34 PM

Julio Teheran earned the win on Opening Day, holding the Marlins to one run over six innings on Monday.

Teheran allowed eight hits, walked one, and struck out four, but was able to negotiate his way out of trouble for the most part. The right-hander was terrific for the Braves last season, finishing with a 2.89 ERA and a 186/51 K/BB ratio in 221 innings. He should once again rank among the top-15 or top-20 starters in 2015.
Apr 6 - 7:33 PM

Julio Teheran was pounded for seven runs in four innings by the Phillies on Wednesday.

According to the AJC's Dave O'Brien, Teheran said afterwards that it's the best he's felt all spring. We're not sure if that's supposed to be comforting or not. He gave up four homers on a day in which the wind wasn't all that much of a factor. For the spring, he has an 8.00 ERA in 18 innings, giving up 25 hits, walking eight and striking out 15. We're still not particularly worried about him, but with run support likely to be a major issue, he's not quite a top-10 NL-only pitcher for us.
Apr 1 - 4:14 PM

Julio Teheran held the Red Sox to two runs over 5 2/3 innings Friday in Atlanta's 4-2 win.

The game was called in the eighth after a brief rain delay. Teheran allowed five hits and four walks today, but he was able to pitch his way out of trouble against a lineup that included three regulars and several quality reserves. His spring ERA is down to 5.79.
Mar 27 - 4:30 PM

The Braves have named Julio Teheran their Opening Day starter.

He'll get the ball on April 6 in Miami. It's an obvious call after Teheran posted a 2.89 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 186/51 K/BB ratio across 221 innings last season. Wins could be hard to come by with the Braves in rebuilding mode, but the 24-year-old figures to again be an asset in three categories.
Mar 27 - 4:19 PM

Julio Teheran was lit up by the Blue Jays on Sunday, giving up seven runs -- six earned -- and nine hits in 3 1/3 innings.

Worse, it was against a split-squad lineup that included just three regulars. Still, one bad day isn't a huge concern. "He’s not sharp yet," manager Fredi Gonzalez told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. "The breaking ball was just kind of rolling today. He got himself in some hitters’ counts and those guys swing the bat pretty well. He got a lot of pitches, and we will just build on that for the next start."
Mar 15 - 5:09 PM

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).
