The Braves capped week-4 of Grapefruit League play over the weekend with a phenomenal outing by Julio Teheran, finishing the week with a 6-1 record.
Julio Teheran, as Andrew Hirsh wrote about here this week, has really thrived this Spring in a scenario that pins him against zero competition for the fifth starter spot. In Teheran’s 26 innings pitched this Spring, he has given up only 3 runs, 7 hits, 2 homers and has an incredible 9 walks to his 34 strikeouts. At the end of yesterday’s pitching gem, Teheran had a 1.04 ERA. Compare this to 2012 when Teheran left Spring Training with a 9.34 ERA and it’s safe to say that Teheran is right when he states that 2013 is his year.
