The 2017 Galleria Braves could really suck

According to DOB, the Braves hierarchy has yet to initiate contract talks with Jay Hey and Freddie. Heyward has little incentive to sign an extension, as he’s only two years from free agency. Re-upping Freddie, a free agent after 2016, is still possible, but it won’t be easy. If it doesn’t happen this offseason, it…

Spring stats not totally irrelevant

And irrelevant RT @jaysonst: Awesome spring RT@ajcbraves: #Braves pitcher Teheran continues torrid spring with 6 hitless IP (10 K’s) vs Hou — Consigliari51 (@consigliari51) March 23, 2013 Would you rather him give up four homers in an outing, like Teheran did last spring against Detroit? Nothing wrong with a young pitcher gaining confidence, is there?

Pity the fools batting against Julio T

#Braves Teheran dominant: 10 strikeouts with 3 walks, no hits in 6 scoreless innings today against Astros. Has 35 K’s, 9 BB’s, 7 H in 26 IP — David O’Brien (@ajcbraves) March 23, 2013

Teheran keeps dealing

We  came into Spring Training hoping Julio Teheran could hold his own as a 5th starter. He’s done that and more rediscovering the form that made him one of the top pitching prospects in baseball. Today’s line: 6 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, 2 BB, 7 K’s I know, the games don’t count, but would you…

Five no-hit innings for Teheran today

Safe to assume he’s won the fifth starter’s job. For the spring Teheran has allowed two runs and four hits in 14 IP with 18 K’s and 4 BB. Meanwhile, Evan Gattis doubled twice today vs. the Cards, driving in 3. He’s hitting .464 with a .857 slugging percentage this spring — though I still…

Duane’s pissed!

The Pirates unloaded off JV and David Carpenter, but Julio Teheran and Sean Gilmartin pitched two scoreless innings each. The two top contenders for the fifth spot in the rotation each struck out two and allowed only one baserunner apiece. Jay Hey hit his first homer and B.J. and Schafer had two hit games. Otherwise,…

Time to give Dayton a call

According to the Boston Herald’s Michael Silverman, the Royals may be willing to deal prized prospect Wil Myers, a right-handed hitter with immense potential. It would take a lot to get him, perhaps even Julio Teheran AND Randall Delgado. So be it. The Braves have pitching to spare and Myers would be a perfect fit…
