Free agent Julio Teheran will pitch for prospective teams at a showcase in Miami, Florida on Tuesday, per Jon Heyman of MLB Network.
Teheran is coming off of a brutal 2020 campaign in which he registered 10.05 ERA and 1.76 WHIP over 31 1/3 innings (10 appearances) for the Angels. He's still just 29-years-old and should get some interest for teams that need pitching depth if his showcase goes well.
Angels starter and off-season free agent acquisition Julio Teheran struggled again on Saturday, failing to make it past the first inning for the second consecutive start while yielding three earned runs on two hits and two walks in just one inning of work.
The former Atlanta Braves top prospect's ERA climbed all the way to an unthinkable 10.05 with his latest disastrous performance on Saturday against the Dodgers. Teheran (0-4) has arguably been the worst starting pitcher in baseball in 2020, which is not exactly what the Halos had in mind when they inked him to a one-year, $9 million contract last winter. It seems unlikely that he would be back with the club in 2021.
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.
