Julio Teheran was crushed for seven runs on six hits over 4 2/3 innings in Saturday's loss to the Orioles.
Advice: Oh goodness. This one was a debacle from the start, as Teheran opened the contest walking Colby Rasmus, surrendering a double to Adam Jones and walking Manny Machado to load the bases with nobody out. They wouldn't remain loaded for long. Next batter up was Mark Trumbo, who proceeded to launch a grand slam to dead center to give the O's a 4-0 lead. He would again load the bases with nobody out in the fifth inning. That sticky situation was one which he nearly escaped from, but after recording two outs, he yielded a bases-clearing double to Chris Davis and was relieved of duty thereafter. Teheran finished up his miserable afternoon's work having struck out six and walked three. This showing was a far, far cry from his 11-strikeout gem against the Padres last time out. He'll try to get back on track when he carries his 4.52 ERA and 1.25 WHIP into a road showdown with the Cardinals next time out. For reference's sake, Teheran's ERA was sitting at 3.97 prior to Saturday's failures.
Julio Teheran will start on Sunday against the Orioles.
Advice: Teheran had some cramping issues in his first start off the disabled list on Sunday, but he'll be good to go against Baltimore. He was excellent in his previous outing, throwing six no-hit innings and striking out 11 against the Padres.
Julio Teheran pitched six no-hit innings while striking out 11 in a 4-1 victory over the Padres on Sunday.
Advice: Teheran did walk three, and his 95 pitches through six innings made it impossible for him to finish the no-no, especially considering it was his first start off the disabled list. Nevertheless, it’s still a dominating effort from the right-hander, and the Padres were unable to do anything with him while Teheran showed the stuff that made him one of the most intriguing young starters not long ago. The effort lower’s Teheran’s ERA to 3.97 on the season, and he’s now struck out 67 hitters over 77 innings over 14 starts. He’ll look to continue this into his next start, but that has yet to be scheduled. It likely comes at the end of the weekend against the Orioles or next Monday against the Reds.
Braves activated RHP Julio Teheran from the 10-day disabled list.
Advice: Teheran won't make his return until Sunday, but the club had a roster move to make with Mike Foltynewicz so Teheran was brought back a day early. The right-hander missed close to two weeks with a right thumb contusion but didn't require a rehab stint and should be good to go when he faces the Padres Sunday. It's a nice matchup, one fantasy owners shouldn't shy away from, even with it being his first start in 13 days.
Braves manager Brian Snitker confirmed Julio Teheran (thumb) is slated to return Sunday against the Padres.
Advice: That's assuming Teheran's scheduled side session on Thursday goes as planned. The right-hander landed on the DL with a thumb contusion earlier this month but didn't even require a minor league rehab assignment. Teheran has limped to a 6.14 ERA during his four-start winless streak but gets an enticing matchup against the Padres, who have struggled to a .233 average this season.
Julio Teheran (thumb) will throw another bullpen session on Thursday.
Advice: If it goes well, he could be activated off the disabled list Sunday and start the Braves' series finale against the Padres. Teheran has been sidelined since June 5 because of a right thumb contusion. He's also battled arm soreness off and on this season. The 27-year-old holds a disappointing 4.31 ERA and 56/33 K/BB ratio in 71 innings.
