Julio Alberto Teheran was born Jan. 27, 1991 in Cartagena, Colombia. The Braves signed Teheran on July 2, 2007. In November 2007, Baseball America listed Teheran as the Braves' No. 10 prospect behind, among others, Brandon Jones, Gorkys Hernandez, Brent Lillibridge, Cole Rohrbough and Jeff Locke. Teheran made his major league debut May 7, 2011 at the Phillies. The first batter he faced was shortstop Jimmy Rollins, who hit a single to right field. Teheran retired the next three batters he faced in that inn

Teheran to open series vs. Nationals, rest of Braves’ rotation uncertain

Because of Max Fried’s trip to the injured list because of a blister, the Braves have a hole to fill in their rotation. Snitker said the team had yet to decide who would fill Fried’s spot when it comes up Saturday against the Nationals. 

“We’ll do something, but the good thing is we have internal pieces that we’ll use to fill the holes,” Braves manager Brian Snitker said Thursday after the Braves’ 5-4 loss against the Brewers. 

The Braves also benefit by having off-days on each side of a two-game interleague set with Kansas City next week, allowing Snitker a little flexibility in how he uses his staff.
