Atlanta Braves SP Julio Teheran worked two scoreless innings Saturday, March 1, in his Grapefruit League spring debut against the Washington Nationals. "I felt good out there," Teheran said. "I was excited to come back to the mount and (I) did what I expected, just throw strikes." The slider is a pitch Teheran started working on more last season, and he said he worked on "trying to perfect" his slider and curveball during the offseason.

Atlanta Braves SP Julio Teheran is a candidate to be rested down the stretch, as he's never thrown more than 168 innings in a season. He entered his start Monday, Aug. 12, with 137 innings. However, the team isn't going strictly on an innings count for Teheran.
Fantasy Tip: Teheran could be rested by Paul Maholm (wrist), who is nearing a return from the disabled list. Until Teheran is shut down or moved to the bullpen, continue to run him out their in your lineup.

Atlanta Braves SP Brandon Beachy (elbow) could be ready to start for the big club Tuesday, June 18. He's slated to throw a bullpen Saturday, June 15.
Fantasy Tip: Pick up Beachy wherever he's available, and though he may be rusty, it's a good first matchup against the New York Mets. The Bravos will face a tough decision on who to ditch from the rotation when Beachy comes back. It's probably going to be Julio Teheran that gets the boot, but don't assume that's the definite course.

Atlanta Braves SP Kris Medlen said he does not want to move to the bullpen when SP Brandon Beachy (elbow) comes off the disabled list, but he admitted that the decision is out of his hands and would be fine with whatever happens.
Fantasy Tip: Julio Teheran was once considered the favorite to lose his job, but he's pitched better lately, so he might be buying himself time. It's a tough decision that will cripple the mixed-league value of whoever gets the shaft. Stay tuned.

Atlanta Braves SP Julio Teheran took a no-hitter into the eighth inning in his victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates Wednesday, June 5. Teheran won his fourth game while allowing just one hit, walking two and striking out a career-high 11 in eight shutout innings. He threw 79 of his 107 pitches for strikes during the outing to lower his ERA to 3.30. Teheran said the key was keeping the hitters off-balance with his slider.
Fantasy Tip: It's as if Teheran is pitching lately knowing Brandon Beachy's (elbow) return is imminent. He's doing a good job of making it tough to find a spot for Beachy in the rotation. The key has been Teheran settling down on the mound and getting ahead of hitters early in counts. He appears much more comfortable with his repertoire, too. While he's hot, Teheran should be plucked off your league's waiver wire.
