Braves: Julio Teheran finds a new home

Former Braves fan-favorite Julio Teheran has found himself a new home. 

The Staten Island FerryHawks, an expansion team in the Atlantic League, signed Teheran and promptly tabbed him as their opening day starter. Needless to say, things haven’t gone the way many had hoped for the Braves’ longtime ace. Although he’s been dreadful over the past two seasons, I don’t think anyone expected him to be in the Atlantic League at 31-years-old. 

After an abysmal campaign in the shortened 2020 season that was followed by a 2021 season filled with injuries, MLB teams quickly cast him away. Teheran has recovered from his injuries and displayed his potential in a March showcase. Interestingly, Teheran has also added a split-changeup, which sounds like it could be a nasty pitch. It likely won’t be long before an MLB team offers him a contract if he impresses with the FerryHawks.

This isn’t the first time the Atlantic League has been a spot for players to find their groove again — Rich Hill had a brief stint there before signing with the Red Sox. Teheran still has the talent to be in a major league rotation; it’s only a matter of time before a team dealing with injuries or pitching woes turns to him. The Columbian native was beloved in Atlanta; he stuck with the Braves through their dark years and gave us something to look forward to every fifth day. Hopefully, he’ll get another chance in the Show.
