Teheran delivered a quality start on Sunday against the Giants, allowing three runs on four hits and four walks over six innings. Curiously, he struck out just one batter for the second straight game.

It's been an inconsistent start to season for the 24-year-old, as his ERA sits at 4.87 through 11 starts and he has won just one of his last five appearances. Teheran has delivered a quality start in two of his last three outings, however, and will look to continue his recent success on Saturday against the Pirates.

Teheran (4-2) matched his shortest outing of the year Tuesday, allowing eight earned runs on 10 hits and three walks, striking out just one over 4.1 innings.

Teheran didn't have his best stuff Tuesday, as he allowed double-digit hits for the third time this year and surrendered a season-high eight earned runs. The poor outing brought his season ERA up a full run to 4.91, and the supposed ace now owns a shaky 1.56 WHIP on the year. He'll look to bounce back Sunday against Madison Bumgarner and the Giants.

Teheran pitched seven strong innings, striking out eight and giving up only one run on two hits and one walk, to pick up the win against the Brewers on Thursday.

Teheran was perfect in all seven of his innings but one. In the fourth inning, he walked Carlos Gomez, gave up a single to Gerardo Parra, then a sac fly to Ryan Braun for his only run of the evening. Thursday was by far Teheran's best outing of the season and he'll look to keep it going in his next scheduled start Tuesday at the Dodgers.

Teheran got roughed up for six runs on 10 hits and three walks in five innings Saturday, striking out six.

He got off the hook for the loss thanks to a late rally by the Braves, but poor control and command within the strike zone continue to plague Teheran. He now has a weak 4.74 ERA and 34:17 K:BB ratio in 38 innings on the season, and will look for a better result on Friday in Miami.

Teheran used his fastball more often than in his previous starts this season in the course of shutting out the Reds on Sunday. He allowed just three hits and two walks over six innings, striking out six.

In previous starts, where Teheran had some poor results, his fastball usage was below 50 percent, but it was back up to 64 of 102 total pitches Sunday. "I was feeling good," Teheran said. "I was feeling my fastball coming out of my hand. All of my pitches were good. I was really focused on this game." It didn't hurt Teheran that the Braves jumped ahead in the first inning, allowing him to be more aggressive.

Teheran (2-1) gave up 10 hits in 5.2 innings against the Nationals on Tuesday, resulting in seven runs, three of them earned, but still earned a no-decision.

Teheran is off to a very slow start to the season. Despite having a winning record, he is currently posting career-highs in FIP, WHIP, home runs per nine innings and walks per nine innings. His next chance to turn it around is Sunday against the Reds.

Teheran (2-1) was wild in Thursday's loss to the Mets, walking five batters to go with three hits and four runs in just 4.1 innings. He struck out five and threw 102 pitches.

That's a whole heck of a lot of pitches for so short an outing, but Teheran was laboring all afternoon in this one. He's now turned in back-to-back ugly games after starting the season with a pair of wins. Things don't necessarily get easier from here, as he draws the Nationals next week, but the talented Teheran should find his stride soon enough.

Teheran came away with a no-decision after allowing five runs on seven hits, walking two, and striking out four in a game the Braves would eventually win 8-7 over Toronto on Friday night.

Teheran (2-0) came in off of two sterling performances to start the season, but ran headlong into the booming Toronto bats at the Rogers Centre. He allowed four home runs, and left after tossing 94 pitches (just 54 for strikes). Just one of those nights, Teheran still appears ready to enjoy a strong 2015 season.
