Julio Teheran, Gwinnett Braves: Atlanta Braves Prospect Of The Day

Julio Teheran had a huge game on Thursday and is the Braves Prospect of the Day. Here's his stat line from earlier tonight:

↵

8IP, 3H, 0R, 0BB, 11K

Teheran, who is widely regarded as the top-pitching prospect in baseball, is now 6-1 this year at Triple-A Gwinnett and lowered his ERA to 1.98 with his stellar performance. The start was arguably the best of his young career.

Despite two mediocre spot-starts with the Major League club earlier this year, Teheran has all the talent and ability to become an ace for the next decade. Armed with a fastball in the mid-90's, devastating curveball and solid changeup, Teheran has the potential for more and more double digit strikeout performances as his career progresses. He'll likely remain in the Minor Leagues for at least another month or two while he continues to gain valuable experience before becoming a stalwart in the Braves' starting rotation.
