Thu, 17 Aug 2017 01:38:03 EDT

Tue, 15 Aug 2017 20:47:52 EDT

Unpredictable seems to be an appropriate term to describe Julio Teheran's inconsistent season. So, maybe it shouldn't be surprising to learn after shying away from his slider in his first two starts this month, the Braves right-hander relied heavily on this weapon as he produced one of his best starts of the season in Monday night's 3-0 loss to the Rockies at Coors Field.
