The Real Julio Teheran Stands Up

August 25, 2015 Micah Smith 2

We are far enough into the baseball season to safely assume Atlanta Braves starting pitcher Julio Teheran must have expected a better one. He is not alone in that disappointment. Many Atlanta Braves fans were clamoring for a trade of the pitcher who once was considered a "future ace," and the front office was even…

Last week, I graded the 2014 Atlanta Braves position players.  Today, we look at the pitching staff.  We're all aware that without the very good starting pitching this year, this team may have actually finished worse than they did.  And, while the bullpen did go through a couple of stretches in which they struggled, it…

A group by group look at the 2014 spring training Braves, starting with a rather large group: the pitchers. Luis Avilan: Avilan had a breakout year last year, sporting a 1.52 ERA buoyed by a .204 BABIP.    While that BABIP almost certainly isn't sustainable, he has had low BABIPs throughout his entire career, which…
