Braves | Julio Teheran regaining top form
Atlanta Braves general manager Frank Wren feels SP Julio Teheran regained his form while pitching in the Dominican Republic Winter League this winter. "I think we saw a guy who learned from some of the trials over the course of this past season and re-emerged as a top-notch prospect in the winter," Wren said. "He showed his pitchability and stuff that we didn't see a whole lot of during 2012. But he was really impressive in December." Teheran will enter camp as the favorite for the No. 5 rotation post. His poor 2012 season with Triple-A Gwinnett was based on mechanical issues, but he made some adjustments late in the season. Teheran, with the help of special assistant Dom Chiti, raised his glove, which helped Teheran regain more of a fluid and athletic delivery. He had an ERA of 3.23 in seven starts in winter league, allowing just two hits and throwing 16 2/3 scoreless innings in his last three starts.
