Julio Teheran Activated from DL, to Start Friday Against the Nationals

August 19th, 2016

Out since late July with a strain in his lower back, All-Star Atlanta Braves pitcher Julio Teheran has been activated from the 15-day disabled list and will start Friday night against the Washington Nationals. 

Teheran, 25, is pitching to a 3-9 record with a 2.81 ERA and 0.97 WHIP in 21 starts on the season. He immediately becomes a solid DFS play after pitching well during his minor league rehab. Definitely keep an eye on the ace starter here over the next two starts or so.
