Julio Teheran gave up three runs on six hits over five innings of work in his return to the Braves rotation on Friday.
The Braves' ace walked three and struck out five on the night. The Nats pushed a run across in the first inning against him, then Teheran battled back to fire three scoreless innings before they scratched out another pair in his final inning of work. He appears fully recovered from his strained lat and fantasy owners should have no qualms about using him for Wednesday's matchup against the Diamondbacks in Arizona. Aug 19 - 11:29 PM

Braves activated RHP Julio Teheran from the 15-day disabled list.

Teheran will start on Friday against the Nationals. The righty first injured his lat nearly a month ago but has been cleared to return after allowing just one earned run while striking out five and walking none in a five-inning rehab start with Triple-A Gwinnett.
Aug 19 - 2:42 PM

Julio Teheran (lat) will be activated from the disabled list and start Friday versus the Nationals.

As expected. Teheran allowed just one earned run while striking out five and walking none in a five-inning rehab start last Sunday with Triple-A Gwinnett. The 25-year-old right-hander was placed on the disabled list August 1 because of a lat strain. He owns a shiny 2.81 ERA, 0.965 WHIP, and 119/29 K/BB ratio in 134 2/3 innings this season with Atlanta.
Aug 18 - 3:02 PM

Julio Teheran (lat) is on track to rejoin the Braves' rotation on August 19 against the Nationals.

That's assuming he gets through a rehab start for Triple-A Gwinnett on Friday with no issues. Teheran has battled a strained lat since the beginning of August but was cleared for game action after throwing a bullpen session Thursday without any problems.
Aug 12 - 4:16 PM

Julio Teheran (lat) will throw off the mound on Thursday.

Teheran hit the disabled list with a right lat strain at the beginning of August. He will be eligible to return on August 16.'s Mark Bowman relays that the 25-year-old right-hander could be activated near the end of the Braves' next homestand, which will run from August 16 to August 23.
Aug 10 - 9:07 PM

Braves placed RHP Julio Teheran on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to August 1, with a right lat strain.

Teheran left a start on July 22 with a mild lat strain, but he got the go-ahead to make his return this past Saturday against the Phillies. He's apparently still having issues, so the Braves will give him some extended rest. The move clears a spot for the newly-acquired Matt Kemp on the active roster.
Aug 2 - 2:37 PM

Julio Teheran (lat) allowed three runs over five innings in a loss to the Phillies on Saturday.

Making his first start since a lat strain forced him to exit his July 22 outing, Teheran gave up five hits and a walk but was saddled with his ninth loss. What's more important is that he seemed to be healthy and ready to roll going forward. That's a good thing for Teheran owners, as the 25-year-old has posted a strong 2.81 ERA and 0.97 WHIP through 21 starts this year. He should be fully up to speed when he meets the Cardinals on Friday.
Jul 31 - 12:23 AM's Mark Bowman confirmed Julio Teheran (lat) will start Saturday against the Phillies.

Teheran had his turn pushed back a few days after leaving his last start with a strained lat but he recovered nicely from his side session and should see his usual workload on Saturday. The right-hander has been one of the few bright spots for Atlanta this year. He holds an elite 2.71 ERA over 20 outings this season.
Jul 28 - 4:55 PM

Julio Teheran (lat) is expected to start Saturday at home against the Phillies.

Teheran will get a bit of extra rest after leaving his last outing Friday against the Rockies because of a mild lat strain. He played long toss at 120 feet on Tuesday and threw his slider on flat ground. The 25-year-old right-hander boasts a 2.71 ERA, 0.96 WHIP, and 115/28 K/BB ratio in 129 2/3 innings this season for Atlanta.
Jul 26 - 5:27 PM

Julio Teheran (lat) made it through a throwing session without issue on Tuesday.

Teheran played long toss at 120 feet and even threw his slider on flat ground. The right-hander was pulled from his last start Friday against the Rockies because of a mild lat strain. It's not clear when he will start next, but it should be pretty soon. Teheran is one of the Braves' most attractive trade chips leading up to the August 1 deadline.
Jul 26 - 5:23 PM

Julio Teheran (lat) performed well in strength tests Saturday.

The hope is that Teheran -- a possible trade chip for the rebuilding Braves -- won't have to miss a rotation turn. He left his start Friday against the Rockies because of a minor lat strain. Look for a decision on Monday or Tuesday, after he throws a bullpen session.
Jul 23 - 5:41 PM

Julio Teheran was diagnosed with a mild lat strain which caused him to leave Friday's start against the Rockies prematurely.

The right-hander thinks that the issue is minor and that he'll be able to avoid a trip to the disabled list, though a lot will depend on how he responds in the next couple of days.
Jul 23 - 1:35 AM

Julio Teheran was removed from Friday's start against the Rockies in the fifth inning due to an apparent injury.

Teheran may have tweaked something in his side while attempting to reach for a ground ball. The Braves should have an update on his status shortly. Any sort of injury or time missed though would certainly be a major blow to the right-hander's trade value, with the deadline only a week away.
Jul 22 - 10:32 PM

Julio Teheran picked up a no-decision in a fine performance against the Rockies on Sunday, tossing seven innings of shutout ball.

Teheran's was one of a number of remarkable pitching performances on Sunday. He struck out five, walked one and allowed just three hits on the afternoon. Despite this sharp work, no decision came his way, as Jon Gray essentially matched him pitch-for-pitch. This sterling outing just added to what has been a lovely campaign for Teheran, who will carry a 2.79 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and 112/26 K/BB ratio (125 2/3 innings) into a road outing against these same Rockies next time he toes the rubber. Given the way he has pitched this season, it wouldn't be a shock if he conquered Coors.
Jul 17 - 5:34 PM

The Braves rotation is set for this weekend's series against the Rockies, with Lucas Harrell (Friday), Michael Foltynewicz (Saturday) and Julio Teheran (Sunday) all scheduled to start.

The Braves needed to wait to see if Teheran would pitch in the All-Star Game before they officially locked their rotation into place. He did, indeed, toss a scoreless inning in the Midsummer Classic. With that recent performance in the books, the team will hold off on starting him until Sunday.
