Julio Teheran: The Opening Day starter is now a ‘length guy’

This season is not over. This series is not over. Win today and who the heck knows what might befall Clayton Kershaw in Dodger Stadium in Game 5? But, as we wait for Game 4 to commence, we review the hints the 2018 Braves have dropped as to how their 2019 pitching staff might look.

Camargo comes through in the clutch as Braves beat Phillies, 6-5

The Magic Number is now down to just 2 after a wild seventh inning went the Braves way A seesaw seventh inning really shook this game up, but eventually the seesaw slung the Phillies off of it and the Braves were the ones left on the machine after scoring five runs in the seventh to eventually win 6-5. Like an old car sputtering to get going on a frigid morning during the Winter, that’s how Julio Teheran has been when it comes to the first inning of games this season. He was once again victimized in the first inning by his opposition and it happened on the very first at-bat as Cesar...

Phillies bring out the Bour against Braves

Phillies bring out the Bour against Braves

Justin Bour has only started a handful of games for the Phillies. He’s getting the nod tonight against the Braves. Go figure. In the preview for tonight’s game, I noted that Justin Bour could be seen as a potential pinch-hitting threat to Julio Teheran and the Braves tonight. As it turns out, he won’t be coming off of the bench — he’ll be starting. Philadelphia’s August acquisition will be hitting cleanup for them this evening.

Teheran, Braves attempt to slice Magic Number in half against Phillies

Teheran, Braves attempt to slice Magic Number in half against Phillies

After cutting the Magic Number down to just 4 with a win last night, a good performance from Julio Teheran and the rest of the Braves could have them tantalizingly close to a divisional title. With the Magic Number for clinching the division chopped down to four after last night’s comfortable win over the Phillies, the Braves are now looking to keep things going in the right direction — a direction that is pointing directly towards a divisional title. If the Braves are going to continue lopping that number down, they’ll have to put some balls past the defense playing behind an old...

Braves juggling weekend rotation against Phillies

Braves juggling weekend rotation against Phillies

Braves will skip Sean Newcomb on Saturday. With perhaps their biggest series of the season on tap, the Atlanta Braves will juggle their rotation for this weekend’s games. MLB.com’s Mark Bowman reports that Atlanta will skip Sean Newcomb’s scheduled start with Mike Foltynewicz moving up to pitch on Saturday. Anibal Sanchez is now slated to start in Sunday’s series finale against Aaron Nola. Kevin Gausman will make Thursday’s start with Julio Teheran scheduled to go on Friday. The Braves are skipping Newcomb's next start. Folty will start Saturday. Sanchez will start Sunday's...

Braves’ playoff rotation: Teheran over Newcomb in Game 4

As postseason auditions go, the weekend turns of Julio Teheran and Sean Newcomb weren’t encouraging. Teheran issued a career-worst six walks in four innings Saturday; a day later, Newcomb yielded five runs in three. These would seem the leading – word used advisedly – candidates to start Game 4 of the Division Series, and we note that Game 4 of a best-of-five is always an elimination game for somebody. And here we say, “Ouch.”
