With the benefit of a huge lead in the National League East, the Braves plan to give rookie right-hander Julio Teheran some extra rest as the regular season winds down.
According to Mark Bowman and Eric Single of MLB.com, Teheran will have his next start pushed back to September 10 against the Marlins. The 22-year-old last pitched on August 30, so he’ll go a full 10 days between starts.
Teheran owns a quality 3.01 ERA and 148/42 K/BB ratio over 161 1/3 innings this season. His career-high is 164 1/3 innings between the majors and minors in 2011, but he’s poised to move well past that number if the Braves play deep into October.
