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.

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.

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.
Apr 14 - 8:02 PM

Julio Teheran allowed five runs -- four earned -- over four innings in a loss to the Cardinals on Saturday.

Three Braves errors and two wild pitches didn't help Teheran, but the right-hander also yielded six hits and issued four free passes. The start followed a decent showing on Opening Day, when he held the Nationals to two runs in a loss. This loss was the first charged to him this season, and he'll look to get in the win column Thursday at the Nationals.
Apr 10 - 12:02 AM

Julio Teheran held the Nationals to two runs over six innings in Monday's loss.

Teheran served up solo shots to Bryce Harper in the first inning and Daniel Murphy in the fourth and he also walked three batters. However, he kept the Nats at bay for the most part in a solid Opening Day performance against a dangerous lineup. Outings like this -- where Teheran pitches well but doesn't pick up a win -- will likely be a regular thing all season. He'll take on the Nationals again next week.
Apr 4 - 7:54 PM

Julio Teheran tossed five innings of shutout ball versus the Yankees on Wednesday.

Teheran finishes his spring with a 2.01 ERA, though it comes with just 11 strikeouts in 22 1/3 innings. The Braves aren't going to have a great defense behind him (they're below average at third base, left field and probably shortstop), so Teheran is going to need to get some strikeouts to post a strong ERA in the regular season. His K rate did pick back up in the second half of last year, and it will probably tick up again this year when the games begin to matter.
Mar 30 - 5:58 PM

Julio Teheran will start Opening Day against the Nationals on Monday, April 4.

It was the obvious choice, especially now that Shelby Miller has been shipped out of town. This will be Teheran's third consecutive Opening Day assignment for the Braves.
Mar 28 - 4:35 PM

Julio Teheran worked six scoreless innings Friday against the Astros.

Teheran allowed four hits, walked none and struck out five. He has a 2.60 ERA with one start remaining this spring.
Mar 25 - 3:53 PM

Julio Teheran allowed two hits over four innings as the Braves shut out the Rays 5-0 on Monday.

The Rays had just three hits in the game. Teheran struck out one and walked none in his second start of the spring. He allowed two runs in three innings his first time out. Teheran should offer some mixed-league value this season, though he doesn't appear to possess the same kind of upside he did a couple of years ago.
Mar 14 - 4:09 PM

Julio Teheran opened his spring by allowing two runs in three innings Wednesday against the Astros.

Teheran had a brutal spring and a lousy first half last year before bouncing back somewhat after the break. He seems like a reasonable bet for this year, with the caveat that he's likely to get lousy run support pitching for the Braves. He's not worth what he used to be.
Mar 9 - 5:09 PM

Buster Olney of reports that the Braves are listening to offers on right-hander Julio Teheran.

Given that the Braves are in rebuild-mode and the prices are sky high on the free agent market, they'd be foolish not to. Still, it would take a lot to give up Teheran, as he's owed just $28.6 million through 2019 with a $12 million club option (or $1 million buyout) for 2020.

Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe reports the Giants have discussed trading for Julio Teheran.

They've also looked into Teheran's teammate, Shelby Miller. The Braves have inquired about infielders Matt Duffy and Joe Panik, but the Giants have no interest in moving either player. That leaves the two sides at an impasse. It sounds like the Giants are going to make pitching a priority this offseason. In addition to Teheran and Miller, the Giants have also been linked to a number of top free agent starters including Zack Greinke, David Price, Jeff Samardzija and Jordan Zimmermann.

Julio Teheran delivered a dominant performance in his final start of the season on Friday, scattering five hits and a walk over six shutout frames in a victory over the Cardinals.

The right-hander struck out six in the impressive outing. While the final numbers on his 2015 season don't jump off the page (4.04 ERA, 1.31 WHIP), he finished his season on an extremely high note. Teheran posted a 1.62 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 32/16 K/BB ratio over 39 innings in his final six starts. He'll make for a nice bounceback candidate in next season's fantasy drafts.
