Teheran will start Opening Day for the Braves against the Marlins.

Teheran will enter 2015 as the Braves' ace, so it should come as no surprise that he will receive the starting nod for Opening Day. He'll look to repeat or improve on a 2014 season in which he posted a 2.89 ERA and 1.08 WHIP with 186 strikeouts over 221 innings.

Teheran pitched five innings in a minor league game Friday, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. He is the Braves' planned Opening Day starter.

Teheran built his pitch count up above 70 in the outing, and manager Fredi Gonzalez said the right-hander was solid in his five innings of work. It's good to hear, especially after Teheran was knocked around in his first three spring outings, giving up nine runs (seven earned) on 13 hits and four walks with eight strikeouts over 8.1 frames. Last season, Teheran went 14-13 with a 2.89 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 186:51 over 221 innings.

Teheran gave up two runs on six hits over five innings while striking out six and walking three in a winning effort against Pittsburgh on Wednesday.

While Teheran needed 96 pitches to get 15 outs, he was much better than Jeff Locke on Wednesday, which was enough to push Teheran to his 14th victory of the season. Teheran's second full season with the Braves finishes with a slight drop in strikeout rate (from 22.0% to 21.0%), but a stable walk rate (5.8% BB%) and a lower WHIP (1.08) than his 2013 campaign thanks in part of a .227 batting average against. Teheran continued to maintain a good swinging-strike rate (10.7%), and appears positioned to serve as the Braves' staff ace for the foreseeable future.

Teheran allowed two runs on seven hits, he did not walk a batter and struck out six over seven innings of a 5-0 loss to the Mets on Friday night.

He was locked in a classic duel with the Mets' Zack Wheeler before making his one mistake, a two-run home run off the bat of Lucas Duda in the sixth inning. Teheran (13-13, 2.88 ERA) will attempt to end his 2014 season on a positive note when he faces the Pirates at home .

Teheran took the loss Monday, allowing five runs�two earned�in 6.2 innings against the Phillies.

Teheran really got no help from his teammates, as the Braves surrendered three unearned runs and couldn't muster a single hit on the offensive side. The 23 year old will hope for some more help on both sides of the ball when he faces the Marlins this weekend.

Teheran struck out four and walked two while giving up one run on three hits over 6.1 innings in a winning effort against the Mets on Wednesday.

The victory Wednesday upped Teheran's season total to 13, and he managed to avoid significant damage despite falling behind to 15 of the 24 batters he faced. Teheran is lined up for two starts next week, first against the Phillies on Monday before a road start in Miami on September 7.

Teheran tossed six scoreless innings at Cincinnati on Thursday to earn his 12th win of the season. He scattered four hits and struck out three.

Teheran was never really challenged, allowing three singles and a double, while not walking a batter. The young righty hasn't been as dominant as he was earlier in the season, as he had posted a 4.97 ERA over his previous eight starts, a span of 50.2 innings. Even so, he's still a productive starter on a contending team, and should be started with confidence in most cases. He'll toe the rubber against the Mets in his next start.

Teheran picked up his 11th victory of the season Saturday night, giving up two runs on four hits and three walks while striking out one during six innings versus the A's.

Coming off of back-to-back lackluster outings, Teheran delivered a nice effort for the Braves on Saturday night. Though he was not extremely sharp in regards to command, the All-Star hurler kept the A's hitters off balance throughout his six frames. Teheran will look to build on this performance Thursday versus the Reds.
