Braves' Julio Teheran (hamstring) to debut by Monday

Atlanta Braves starting pitcher Julio Teheran (hamstring) is aiming to make his Cactus League debut on Sunday or Monday.

What It Means:

Teheran was scratched from his scheduled Cactus League start on Wednesday due to left hamstring tightness, but an MRI came back negative, per general manager Billy Eppler. The 29-year-old right-hander is expected to start for the Braves on Opening Day.

Teheran recorded a 3.81 ERA and 1.32 WHIP with 162 strikeouts and 83 walks across 174 2/3 innings last season. He went 10-11 in 33 starts last season.
