Julio Teheran was lifted after retiring only three batters on Sunday, having yielded three earned runs on two hits and two walks and failing to record a strikeout.
Teheran falls to 0-4 on the season and has been one of the worst pitchers in baseball this season (9.49 ERA, 1.68 WHIP) after signing a one-year, $9 million contract with the Angels in the offseason. Teheran surrendered a two-run home run to Joey Gallo in the first inning. Then, after allowing another home run to Anderson Tejeda and a walk to begin the second inning, Angels skipper Joe Madden had seen enough and pulled the plug after only 31 pitches. Teheran is tentatively scheduled to face the Dodgers next weekend and should be avoided in all fantasy leagues.
Angels starter Julio Teheran lasted only two innings on Tuesday night against Arizona while surrendering four earned runs on three hits and one walk. Teheran also failed to record a strikeout.
Teheran’s season ERA now sits at 8.90 to go along with a 1.60 WHIP. The once promising 29-year-old right-hander who posted a respectable 3.81 ERA over 172.2 IP last season with Atlanta has become unusable in fantasy leagues this season.
Angels starter Julio Teheran (0-3) lasted only 4.2 innings on Wednesday night, giving up five earned runs, six hits, and one walk to go along with four strikeouts.
Teheran has not registered a single quality start in 2020. After Wednesday's loss to Texas, Teheran has an unsightly 8.23 ERA and can not be trusted in fantasy lineups.
Julio Teheran received a no-decision on Wednesday against the Padres, giving up two runs on three hits over five innings pitched.
The Angels eventually went on to lose 11-4. Considering how hot the Padres have been as of late, two runs in five innings isn't actually all that bad. Still, Teheran isn't someone to be excited about in fantasy leagues. He has given up 20 earned runs in 22 2/3 innings on the season.
Julio Teheran is scheduled to start the second half of the Angels' double-header on Tuesday against the Houston Astros.
Teheran was moved to the bullpen after giving up 11 runs over his first three starts. He made one appearance out of the pen back on August 20th and gave up four runs over five innings of relief. Add that all up and he's not a recommended play against the formidable Astros lineup.
