Top Braves pitching prospect Julio Teheran made his major-league debut May 7 against the Phillies because the Braves needed a spot starter and he was the one in Triple-A who was slated to throw that day. With Brandon Beachy on the disabled list with an oblique injury, Teheran has gotten the call again. He'll start Wednesday against the Diamondbacks for Atlanta.
Teheran wasn't bad but ran into some troubles against the Phillies in his first big-league start. He lasted 4 2/3 innings, giving up three earned runs. He only gave up four hits, but was hurt by a Ryan Howard home run and Shane Victorino triple.
Teheran, 20, was a consensus top-10 prospect in all of baseball entering the 2011 season and was in the top five by several outlets. He's making Triple-A hitters look silly, sporting a 1.91 ERA with 32 strikeouts in 37 2/3 innings.
It's likely Teheran is only making a spot-start again, as the Braves won't need a fifth starter again until May 31.
