Teheran gave up six runs on 11 hits in a road loss to Arizona on Wednesday, although he avoided the decision. He struck out four without a walk.

EDGE Analysis

The Braves mounted a late offensive surge to get Teheran off the hook, only to lose anyway an 11th-inning walkoff. The Braves' ace has allowed nine runs on 17 hits in 11 frames spanning two starts since he returned from a back injury, but he's faced a couple tough offenses in the Nats and D-backs. The Padres should provide Teheran with an easier mark when he next takes the mound Tuesday.

The Braves activated Teheran (back) from the disabled list Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Teheran is ready to return to action after missing nearly three weeks while recovering from a mild lat strain. Teheran posted just a 4.08 ERA in July, but he still sits with a 2.81 mark -- and also a 0.97 WHIP -- for the season. He will jump right into the Braves' rotation and take the ball Friday night against the Nationals.

Teheran (back) will be activated from the disabled list to start against the Nationals.

EDGE Analysis

This was the plan for Teheran, and now it's become official, missing nearly the minimum amount of time prior to returning. Teheran has been the true ace of the Braves' staff this season, and will look to pick up where he left off prior to hitting the disabled list, having allowed just three runs over 16.0 innings in his last three starts.

Teheran (back) plans to come off the DL and start Friday's game against the Nationals, Kevin McAlpin of 680 The Fan in Atlanta reports.

EDGE Analysis

Teheran hit the DL on August 2 with a strained right lat, but after throwing five innings in a rehab start at Triple-A Gwinnett over the weekend, he's ready to return to the big league rotation. The right-hander holds a healthy 2.81 ERA on the season, but he's been slightly less effective in recent weeks, allowing 13 earned runs in 28.2 innings (4.08 ERA) since July 1.

Teheran (back) tossed five innings in a rehab start with Triple-A Gwinnett on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Teheran was sharp Sunday, giving up just one earned run on three hits while posting a 5:0 K:BB and throwing 51 of his 73 pitches for strikes. The Braves have not confirmed that his next start will come with the big club, but there is a good chance that will be the case.

Teheran (back) will make a rehab start Sunday for Triple-A Gwinnett, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

EDGE Analysis

He has successfully ramped up his throwing over the past week and now faces one final hurdle on his road back from the disabled list. If all goes as planned Sunday and Teheran responds well in the days that follow, he will return Aug. 19 to face the Nationals at Turner Field. Teheran has put together a great season so far but the peripherals suggest he's overachieved some, with his FIP coming in at 3.69 (2.81 ERA).

Teheran (back) is expected to make one rehab start before rejoining the Braves during their upcoming homestand, Kevin McAlpin of 680 The Fan reports.

EDGE Analysis

The right-hander threw a successful side session Thursday and he looks primed to make a minor league rehab start in the near future. If all goes well, Teheran will only need one outing before rejoining the Braves' rotation during their six-game homestand that gets underway Tuesday.

Teheran (lat strain) will throw off a mound Thursday and could be activated near the end of next week, MLB.com's Mark Bowman reports.

EDGE Analysis

This timetable seems somewhat optimistic, but it's possible, assuming he can get through his mound session and subsequent bullpen sessions without further aggravating his lat/back. While Teheran's 2.81 ERA is more than a full run lower than his 4.05 xFIP, there is no denying he was having quite the bounce back season after a disappointing 2015 campaign when he registered a 4.04 ERA. Continue to monitor his progress following Thursday's activity.

Teheran (back) will throw off flat ground Saturday, David O'Brien of the AJC reports.

EDGE Analysis

Saturday marks the first time Teheran will pick a ball back up after landing on the DL earlier in the week. Given that he's throwing off flat ground, the Braves likely will still need him to progress to throwing off a mound and then tossing bullpen sessions before considering activating their ace. An update on the next step of Teheran's rehab process figures to be made available Sunday when the team can gauge how his back responded to the increased activity.

The Braves have placed Teheran on the 15-day DL Tuesday with a right lat strain.

EDGE Analysis

It's unclear at this time how much recovery time Teheran will need, but since the Braves are out of the playoff race, expect them to be extra careful with their ace. Teheran will be eligible to return to pitch as early as August 14. After a rocky 2015, Teheran has had a really strong 2016 campaign, supporting a 2.81 ERA and 0.95 WHIP with 119 strikeouts in 134.2 innings. This move opened up room to put Matt Kemp on the Braves 25-man roster.
