Braves’ uberprospect Julio Tehrean made his major league debut against the Phillies a week ago Saturday. It wasn’t the most impressive thing in the world — he allowed three runs in 4 2/3 innings and was working behind guys the whole time — but you got at least a glimpse of his promise based on a live fastball and a pretty darn impressive changeup.
There’s no sense yet if this stint in the bigs will last longer for Teheran — part of that depends on Beachy’s oblique, part of it depends on Teheran’s effectiveness — but the Dbacks’ aren’t scoring a lot of runs right now so it may not be the worst draw for the kid.
