The Braves on Sunday named Julio Teheran their Opening Day starter.
It will be the right-hander's fourth straight Opening Day nod. Teheran had a disappointing 2015 campaign but rebounded nicely in 2016, putting up a 3.21 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 167/41 K/BB ratio across 188 innings. Mar 19 - 1:43 PM

Julio Teheran will return to the Braves' rotation on Saturday.

Fresh off a stint with Colombia in the World Baseball Classic, Teheran lines up for three more Grapefruit League starts. He's slated to start Opening Day against the Mets.
Mar 15 - 12:55 PM

Julio Teheran pitched three scoreless innings Friday against the Red Sox.

He struck out three. Teheran will head off to the WBC having thrown five scoreless innings so far this spring. He'll likely make just a single start there unless Colombia pulls off an upset and advances.
Mar 3 - 5:14 PM

Julio Teheran tossed a pair of scoreless innings Sunday against the Astros.

There's no in-between for Teheran's Grapefruit League campaigns; his five full springs have resulted in ERAs of 9.37, 1.04, 1.80, 8.00 and 2.01. And, while spring training numbers aren't typically much of a guide for regular-season success, it should be noted that his one relatively poor regular season followed his bad string in 2015 (he pitched just 6 1/3 major league innings after his other bad spring in 2012). So, it could be taken as an especially good sign if Teheran has a strong spring. He will pitch for Colombia in the WBC, but the team is a long shot to advance.
Feb 26 - 4:49 PM

Julio Teheran dominated the Tigers in Sunday's series finale, racking up 12 strikeouts over seven shutout innings of baseball.

Teheran scattered just three hits and a walk over the dazzling performance. The 12 strikeouts were a season-high for the right-hander. He wraps finishes the year 7-10 with a 3.21 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 167/41 K/BB ratio across 188 innings. He'll be a very attractive fantasy commodity heading into the 2017 season.

Julio Teheran yielded six runs over four frames but escaped with a no-decision in Tuesday's 7-6 win over the Phillies.

Teheran blinked and was down 4-0, as Ryan Howard launched a grand slam off of him in the first inning. The score was 6-0 when a rain delay arrived and the Braves then scored seven unanswered runs the rest of the way. Teheran has been a little hit-or-miss since returning from a lat injury last month. He'll finish off his season on Sunday versus the Tigers.

Julio Teheran continued to torment the Mets on Tuesday, tossing seven innings of one-run ball in a 5-4 victory.

Teheran yielded an RBI double to Asdrubal Cabrera with no one out in the third inning, but he then retired 15 of the final 16 batters he faced. It wasn't a dominant out with just one strikeout, but Teheran now boasts a career 2.36 ERA against the Mets. He'll take on the Marlins in Miami on Sunday.

Julio Teheran got knocked around for five runs in 5 1/3 innings during a loss to the Marlins on Wednesday.

He gave up a run in the first inning then put up zeroes until the Marlins struck again in the sixth inning. They hung four runs on him in that frame. The big blow was a three-run bomb by Marcell Ozuna that got Teheran yanked from the mound. He struck out five while giving up six hits and a walk. It was a rare bad outing for the 25-year-old, who has pieced together a 3.18 ERA despite a 5-10 record in 27 starts. He is likely to get two key starts next week as many fantasy leagues begin their playoff schedule.

Julio Teheran allowed two runs in six innings but did not factor into the decision in a loss to the Mets on Friday.

He limited New York to four hits and two bases-on-balls although he managed only three whiffs. He kept the Mets off the board for the first five frames until Curtis Granderson took him deep for a two-run homer in the sixth inning. Teheran has been nearly elite on the bump this year despite his 5-9 record. He has a 3.01 ERA with 146 strikeouts and only 36 walks in 164 2/3 innings.

Julio Teheran kept the scoreboard clean in Sunday's win over the Phillies, firing six shutout innings.

Teheran scattered five hits, struck out seven and walked two on the afternoon. He finished his six impressive innings having thrown 109 pitches (68 strikes). The 25-year-old right-hander has allowed just two runs in his last 13 innings and has 15 strikeouts in that space. He might be starting to put it together again after spending about a month on the shelf with a lat injury. A home start against the Mets shows next on his schedule as he tries to continue an upward trend through the season's close.
Sun, Sep 4, 2016 04:57:00 PM

Julio Teheran notched eight strikeouts while holding the Padres to two runs over seven terrific innings in a 7-3 victory Tuesday.

He gave up six hits and didn't walk anyone in what was easily his best of three starts since returning from the disabled list. It was obviously an easy matchup for Teheran, but it should give his fantasy owners confidence down the stretch that he's healthy. He has another juicy matchup this weekend in Philadelphia.
Wed, Aug 31, 2016 12:12:00 AM

Julio Teheran was charged with six runs in six innings Wednesday against the Diamondbacks.

Teheran's stuff hasn't looked particularly crisp since he came off the disabled list last week, and it's worth wondering if he can recapture his first-half success before the season ends. He allowed 11 hits in all tonight, two of them homers.
Thu, Aug 25, 2016 01:48:00 AM

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.
Fri, Aug 19, 2016 11:29:00 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.

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.
