Strength tests performed on Teheran (lat strain) Saturday produced encouraging results, and he remains hopeful that he won't need to miss a start, MLB.com's Mark Bowman reports.

EDGE Analysis

He said all he felt Saturday was the normal day after start soreness, and all of the reports seem to suggest optimism on the part of Teheran and the Braves regarding the mild lat strain that forced him from Friday's start in the fifth inning. More information will come out prior to his next scheduled start Thursday, but for now Teheran's owners can remain cautiously optimistic.

Teheran hopes he just has a mild lat strain and will be able to avoid the DL after leaving in the middle of Friday's game, the Atlanta Journal Constitution's David O'Brien reports.

EDGE Analysis

He felt some discomfort after throwing a pitch in the third inning, but continued to pitch before shortstop Erick Aybar convinced him to call for the trainer in the fifth inning. Teheran has been dealing all season, and it was the same again Friday prior to his exit, as he had tossed four shutout innings while striking out three. More information regarding his availability for his next scheduled start July 28 should be released in the coming days.

Teheran left Friday's game with right lat tightness and is day-to-day.

EDGE Analysis

He exited after chasing down a dribbler to the left side of the mound, but considering the injury was to his back/shoulder muscles, he may have suffered the injury while taking a hard swing during an earlier at-bat. Teheran tossed four shutout innings, allowing three hits while walking two and striking out three before leaving with zero outs in the fifth inning. Consider him questionable to make his next scheduled start July 28 (Thursday) against the Phillies.

Teheran left Friday's game in the fifth inning after suffering an apparent lower-body injury while trying to field a slow roller.

EDGE Analysis

It's unclear what the nature of the injury is, but it could be lower-body related, given the nature of the play. He was shutting out the Rockies in Coors Field through four innings, allowing three hits while walking two and striking out three. His status will be updated when the team releases the specifics.

Teheran (3-8) threw seven scoreless innings Sunday, scattering three hits and a walk while striking out five, but came away with a no-decision in a 1-0 win over the Rockies.

EDGE Analysis

Despite a 2.90 ERA in 11 home starts this season, Teheran is just 0-4 in the so-called friendly confines as the woeful Braves offense has averaged just 2.0 runs a game in those starts. He'll be on the road for his next start Friday, but that's the extent of the good news as it'll be a rematch with the Rockies in Coors Field.

Teheran (3-8) allowed five runs on nine hits and one walk while striking out two to take the loss Saturday at the White Sox.

EDGE Analysis

Teheran gave up a pair of runs in the second inning and followed that up by allowing three more in the third inning to saddle him with his eighth loss of the year. After going 13 straight starts without allowing more than three earned runs in a game, he's now allowed five runs in consecutive outings to raise his ERA to 2.96 on the season. He'll make his next start after the All-Star break.

Teheran will start Saturday against the White Sox, Kevin McAlpin of 680 The Fan reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Braves were forced to skip Teheran's scheduled start Wednesday but he will slot back in Saturday with the thigh infection cleared up. Teheran endured one of his worst starts of the season last week, giving up five runs on 11 hits in 6.2 innings -- it was the first time he'd given up more than five hits since April 25. While he has not fared well historically against AL opponents (5.13 ERA), Teheran has been good in his two interleague starts so far this season.

Teheran will miss his next start Wednesday against the Phillies, Kevin McAlpin for 680 The Fan reports. He's hopeful to make his next start this weekend against the White Sox.

EDGE Analysis

Teheran is headed back to Atlanta to get his thigh infection looked at. The hope is that Teheran will just miss one start and return to pitch against the White Sox this weekend. There has been talk of Teheran potentially being a trade target for teams heading into the deadline, so it's important that he's fully healthy before the Braves send him back to the mound.

Teheran (3-8) allowed five runs on 11 hits while striking out six over 6.2 innings, but received no decision Friday against the Marlins.

EDGE Analysis

After allowing a two-run homer in the first inning, Teheran settled down until giving up three more runs in the seventh inning. However, the Braves were able to score a run in the ninth inning to take him off the hook for a potential loss. This was the first time he's allowed more than three runs in a start over his last 14 outings, and he now has a 2.72 ERA along with a 0.93 WHIP on the season. He'll make his next start Wednesday at the Phillies.
