Julio Teheran struggled in a no-decision against the Nationals on Friday, allowing five runs (two earned) on 10 hits over six innings of work.

The young right-hander walked one and struck out one in the ballgame. Most of the damage came in the fifth inning on a three-run blast by Ryan Zimmerman, which would've never happened if an error by Dan Uggla hadn't extended the inning. Teheran will carry a 2.84 ERA and 1.37 WHIP into his next outing against the Phillies in Philadelphia on Wednesday.
Apr 11 - 11:42 PM

Julio Teheran held the Nationals to two runs over seven innings Saturday in the Braves' 6-2 win.

Teheran also helped himself at the plate, going 2-for-4 with an RBI single. He walked four batters but surrendered only three hits and finished the game with six strikeouts. Teheran is 1-1 with a 2.77 ERA and 1.15 WHIP through two starts this season. He'll try to move to 2-1 next week against this same Nationals team.
Apr 5 - 11:14 PM

Julio Teheran took a tough loss on Monday after allowing two runs in six innings versus the Brewers.

A little deja vu for Teheran: the last time he took a loss while giving up as few as two runs was also in a 2-0 loss to the Brewers last June. Wily Peralta got the better of him in that one. Yovani Gallardo beat him in a 2-0 game today.
Mar 31 - 5:16 PM

Braves Opening Day starter Julio Teheran fanned nine while allowing two runs in six innings Wednesday in a win over the Marlins.

Teheran closes out the spring with a 1.80 ERA and a 26/5 K/BB ratio in 25 innings. He was even better last spring when he was attempting to secure a rotation spot (1.04 ERA, 35/9 K/BB in 26 IP), but this March was still plenty good. He'll face the Brewers and Yovani Gallardo in five days.
Mar 26 - 5:40 PM

Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez announced Saturday that Julio Teheran will start for the Braves on Opening Day.

The 23-year-old will likely be followed by Alex Wood, Freddy Garcia and David Hale to begin the season in the Braves rotation. Ervin Santana is expected to be ready to make his regular season debut on April 9, which is the first time the team would need a fifth starter.
Mar 22 - 9:17 AM

Julio Teheran retired all 12 hitters he faced Tuesday in the Braves' 9-1 rout of the Phillies.

This after the Braves beat the Phillies 8-1 on Monday. Teheran has been very sharp this spring, pitching nine scoreless innings and striking out nine. He's the one thing going right for the pitching staff.
Mar 11 - 4:41 PM

Julio Teheran tallied four strikeouts across three scoreless frames in Thursday's win over the Nationals.

He allowed four hits and walked one, dueling with Jordan Zimmermann before they each handed it off to the bullpen. Teheran hasn't been scored on in his first five innings of Grapefruit League action. He'll be looking to follow up this year on an amazing rookie season that saw him put up a 3.20 ERA over 30 starts.
Mar 6 - 9:39 PM

Braves signed RHP Julio Teheran to a six-year, $32.4 million contract extension.

The deal also includes a $12 million club option (with a $1 million buyout) for 2020. Teheran wasn't arbitration-eligible until after next season, so the Braves have bought out at least one and possibly two free agent years. The young right-hander finished fifth in the National League Rookie of the Year voting last season after posting a 3.20 ERA with 170 strikeouts across 185 2/3 innings.
Feb 14 - 10:28 AM

Julio Teheran recorded just eight outs against the Dodgers in Game 3 of the NLDS on Sunday, surrendering six runs on eight hits and a walk.

Teheran punched out five in his 2 2/3 innings. The 22-year-old rookie right-hander became the first Columbian to start a postseason game, but it wouldn’t be a memorable night for him. The Dodgers broke through four runs in the second inning, courtesy of a sacrifice fly from Hyun-Jin Ryu and a three-run blast off the bat of Carl Crawford. After the Braves battled back to tie the game with three in the top half of the third, the Dodgers offense tacked on another pair in the third on RBI singles from Adrian Gonzalez and Skip Schumaker.

Julio Teheran allowed four runs on six hits over five innings in a victory Sunday against the Phillies.

He struck out three, surrendered six hits and didn't issue a free pass. This outing would have looked a lot different if Teheran had retired Erik Kratz with two outs in the fourth inning and two men on; instead, Kratz cracked a homer. Regardless, Teheran improved to 14-8 with a 3.20 ERA in 30 starts.

Julio Teheran allowed one run in six innings and fanned seven as the Braves beat the Cubs on Sunday.

Since the Nationals lost to the Marlins, the Braves clinched the NL East before their game ended. Still, they celebrated at the end after doing their pair. Teheran moved to 13-8 with a 3.07 ERA. That'd make him a strong Rookie of the Year contender most seasons. This year, though, the best he can hope for is a third place finish.
Sun, Sep 22, 2013 05:52:00 PM

Julio Teheran yielded four runs on seven hits over 6 2/3 innings in a loss to the Padres on Sunday.

He struck out six and didn't walk a batter, but Teheran was done in by a pair of home runs that accounted for three of the four runs charged against him. The loss dropped him to 12-8 with a 3.14 ERA through 28 starts. Teheran's next task is a scheduled date against the Cubs in Chicago on Saturday.
Sun, Sep 15, 2013 04:51:00 PM

Julio Teheran allowed three runs over 6 2/3 innings in a win over the Marlins on Tuesday.

The Marlins got to Teheran for three runs in the first inning before the 22-year-old shut them down over the next 5 2/3 innings. The right-hander allowed only five hits on the night while striking out six. The win moved him to 12-7 with a 3.05 ERA through 27 starts. He'll next take the mound Sunday against the Padres.
Tue, Sep 10, 2013 11:21:00 PM

Julio Teheran will not make his next start until September 10 against the Marlins.

With the benefit of a big lead in the NL East, the Braves will give Teheran a rest. The 22-year-old has already thrown 161 1/3 innings this season and that number will only grow down the stretch and the postseason. Kameron Loe will start in his place Wednesday against the Mets.
