Right-hander Julio Teheran, 32, took the mound less than two hours after signing with the Milwaukee Brewers. He did his job, but he didn’t get the win.
Teheran started the 2023 Major League Baseball home game against the San Francisco Giants at American Family Field in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, on June 26 and pitched well, allowing one run on five hits and four walks with five strikeouts in five innings. But he couldn’t get any help from his offense and took the loss. The team fell to 0-5.
It was a hectic day for Teheran. The trip to Milwaukee was officially announced about two hours before the game, and the Brewers immediately announced Tehran as the starter.
There was a reason for the rush. Milwaukee’s starting rotation is currently in the injury ward. Eric Lauer, Wade Miley, and Brandon Woodruff are on the disabled list.
With a gaping hole in the starting rotation, Milwaukee is looking to acquire a starter, and Teheran is the man.
Teheran went 4-2 with a 5.63 ERA in Triple-A for the San Diego Padres this season.
Teheran made his professional debut in 2011 with the Atlanta Braves, where he played through 2019 before joining the Angels in 2020. He struggled in his first year with the Angels, going 4-4 with a 10.05 ERA in 10 appearances.
In 2021, he moved to the Detroit Tigers, where he made one start. Last year, he made no big league appearances at all. A shoulder injury kept him off the mound. His last major league appearance was on April 4, 2021, against the Cleveland Indians (now the Cleveland Indians).먹튀검증
He finished his major league career with a 78-77 record and a 3.80 ERA.
After the game, Teheran said, “I didn’t realize I was back (in the big leagues) until after I signed the contract. I was really focused today, throwing in front of a lot of people is something I’ve done my whole life. It’s where I’m supposed to be, it’s where I pitched to be. That’s what I’ve been competing for my whole life. I’m proud of the effort I put in to come back.”
Milwaukee manager Craig Counsell said, “Teheran threw like he knew what he was doing. That’s what we’re looking for,” said Milwaukee manager Craig Counsell.
