Wake Up With Julio Teheran Throwing A One-Hit Shutout

With the non-waiver trade deadline exactly six weeks from today, get ready to hear this name come up a lot — Julio Teheran. Contending teams are desperate for starting pitching, and he might be the best name available come August 1st. The 25-year-old right-hander retired the first six batters that he faced, allowed a leadoff single to Michael Conforto in the bottom of the third, and then retired the next 21 batters in a row. Teheran faced just one batter over the minimum in his one-hit, complete game shutout with seven strikeouts and no walks, which was also his first complete game of the season, and his first since 2014. Don’t look now, but the Braves have won five games in a row. If they can haul off 24 or 25 straight victories from here, they’re right back in this thing.
