He’s had an erratic season: In 17 starts, he’s allowed one or no earned runs six times and four or more earned runs seven times.
The Braves have days off Monday and Thursday around a two-game series against the Blue Jays. Teheran is set to start the series opener and the Braves haven’t determined who’ll start Wednesday in place of Max Fried, who went on the 10-day disabled list Friday for a finger blister.
Mike Foltynewicz, who gave up five runs in six innings and took the loss in Friday’s 5-4 game, is an option -- perhaps the leading option -- to start Wednesday, when he would be on regular (four days’) rest. Snitker also mentioned the possibility of having Luiz Gohara move from his current bullpen role to make that start, or to have several relievers combine to make it a “bullpen game.” He said the Braves could also consider bringing up another starter from the minors.
