Braves | Julio Teheran with masterful performance
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.
