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.
Before noting the other pitching stories for the week, here are this week’s exhibition game scores (3/17-3/23):

BEST OF MAXIM
Last season, Julio Teheran entered Spring Training with sky high potential and a solid chance at earning a permanent role in Atlanta’s rotation. However, a year later, the Columbia native traveled to Lake Buena Vista in a similar position as he did in 2012 — but with more doubts and a heap of pressure to boot.
Teheran didn’t only struggle last spring; he struggled with Triple...
Apparently Chris Johnson is tired of spring training. After nearly a month and a half of baseball’s preseason, Johnson is finally calling “uncle.” Hey Spring training....... UNCLE— Chris Johnson (@C_Johnson28) March 23, 2013 It’s understandable that the Braves third baseman wants spring ball to end, he’s tearing the cover off the ball, batting .368 with a .923 OPS, three...
I think the Braves can win the NL East, even with the strength of the Nationals and the Phillies. Similar to the way everybody jumped on the Phillies band wagon the last couple seasons, the same has been said about the Nationals this season. As stacked as the Nationals are, the same was said about the Phillies last season. The Braves added OFs Justin Upton, BJ Upton and RHP Jordan...
KISSIMMEE, Fla. (AP) -- This is how Julio Teheran won a spot in the Atlanta Braves' rotation.
The rookie right-hander struck out 10 in six hitless innings and Dan Uggla hit one of three homers for a split-squad of Braves, who beat the Houston Astros 3-2 on Saturday.
Teheran, Atlanta's fifth starter, walked three while lowering his ERA to 1.04 in six starts.
I’ll start off by reminding you that despite the fact that Jason Heyward has played three full major league seasons, he’s still just 23 years old. What he’s accomplished to this point is pretty astounding, and by the time he peaks around age 26-28, he’s going to be a top-10 fantasy player. We’ve all heard [...]

VIERA, Fla. (AP) Bryce Harper had three hits and stole two bases, one day after he was scratched because of a swollen left hand, and Danny Espinosa went 3 for 3 with a three-run homer Sunday in the Washington Nationals' rain-shortened 9-3 win over the Atlanta Braves.
In a game called after seven innings because of bad weather, Washington's Jordan Zimmermann allowed three...
