Braves will give Julio Teheran another start

Julio Teheran

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.

Well, now that Brandon Beachy is on the DL with an oblique strain, Teheran is getting another shot. He’ll go for the Braves Wendesday in Arizona.

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.
