Julio Teherán Career

Professional career

Teherán joined the Atlanta Braves on July 3, 2007, and began his professional career in 2008, pitching for the Danville Braves. He played six games and had a 1–2 record with a 6.60 ERA and 17 strikeouts in 15 innings during the 1997 season.

He spent the 2009 season pitching for Danville and the Rome Braves. He went 3–4 with a 3.65 ERA and 67 strikeouts in 81 innings in 14 starts. Baseball America rated him as the Braves' third-best prospect ahead of the 2010 season, behind Jason Heyward and Freddie Freeman.

The Atlanta Braves decided to give Teheran another full season in the minors after a promising 2009 season. He pitched for the Rome Braves, Myrtle Beach Pelicans, and the Mississippi Braves during the 2010 season. He ended the season with a 9-08 record, a 2.59 ERA, and 159 strikeouts in 142 innings out of 24 starts.

Teherán was the top-ranked prospect by Baseball America in the Atlanta Braves system before the 2011 season and fifth overall of all prospects. Teherán began the year with the Triple-A Gwinnett Braves, going 3–0 in his first five starts. In the 2011 All-Star Futures Game, he was the starting pitcher for the World team but he gave up a home run to the first batter, Cleveland Indians prospect Jason Kipnis, who was leading off the first inning for the United States.

Teherán made his Major League debut against the Philadelphia Phillies on May 7 on May 7. He took the loss, allowing three earned runs in 4.2 innings pitched with two walks and a strike out. The next day, he was recalled to Triple-A. On May 18, Teherán was called up to another spot for another start, pitching four innings and getting a no-decision. The next day, he was recalled to Triple-A.

When rosters were extended in September, Teherán rejoined the Atlanta Braves. On September 8, he won his first major league victory over the New York Mets. He was named as a starting pitcher on Baseball America's 2011 Minor League All Star team.

Teherán was ranked fifth by Baseball America among all prospects entering the 2012 season, and second-best right-handed pitcher. With the five-man rotation in question, he was encouraged to spring training to argue for a spot on the 25-man roster. Teherán struggled to find a rhythm in the five games he played, including three starts, giving up 22 runs and 18 runs in just 16.1 innings pitched. He was unable to throw strikes as well as giving up eight walks. Teherán was supposed to re-join Gwinnett after struggling against Major League hitters, where he continued his inconsistencies. He had a 5.08 ERA in 26 starts, giving up 18 home runs.

Teherán was passed over by several other players for the call-up when injuries plagued the Major League roster, including a season-ending injury to Brandon Beachy. Atlanta signed free agent Ben Sheets, trade for Paul Maholm, and called Randall Delgado up as replacements rather than the highly awaited prospect.

In 2013, the 21-year-old Teherán's hopes were lower than the previous spring. He was able to the Major League spring training once more, but he showed flashes of superstardom in four starts, spanning 14.1 innings to March 16. He did not start the regular season off with a 5.08 ERA in the first month, but 2013 was his breakout year. He turned it around in April, ending the season with 14-8 record, 3.20 ERA, 170 strikeouts, and 185.2 IP. Teherán was pitching a no-hitter against the Pittsburgh Pirates in 7.2 innings before giving up a single to pinch-hitter Brandon Inge on June 5.

Following former Braves player Édgar Rentera, Teherán became the second Colombian to be selected as an All-Star. Teheran was 14-13-13 with a 2.89 ERA, 1.08 WHIP, and 186 strikeouts in 221 innings in 33 starts on the season.

He had a career-high 12 strikeouts, four in one inning, during a game on May 24, including four in a row. After a 3-7 record with a 2.72 ERA, he was named to his second All-Star Game.

In a 5–2 victory over the San Diego Padres, he allowed two runs on five hits with four walks and five strikeouts. He ended the season with an 11-13 record and a 4.69 ERA in 32 starts. Batters stole 26 bases against him, tying for first position in the major leagues, while being tagged six times. He had a rocky start at SunTrust Park, going 3-10 with a 5.89 ERA in 17 home starts.

Teherán was named the Opening Day starting pitcher for the 2018 season, and he was the first Atlanta Braves pitcher to start five consecutive Opening Day games. Teherán took a no-hitter against the New York Mets on May 3, allowing Asdrubal Cabrera to strike for the first time. Despite this, the Braves defeated the Braves 11–0. On August 5, Teherán hit his first home run after meeting Mets pitcher Corey Oswalt. He was 9-9 with a 3.94 ERA, and he led the major leagues in holding opposing batters to the lowest batting average on play (.217).
