Julio Teheran Picked as Fourth Best Prospect in Baseball

by @ 8:06 am. Filed under 2012 Braves

Julio Teheran was picked as the fourth best prospect in baseball by MLB.com.  He’s in pretty select company because the only guys ahead of him were Matt Moore, Bryce Harper and Mike Trout.  Teheran finished 15-3 at Triple-A but one of his problems is, he’s not a big strikeout guy.  He had 122 strikeouts in 144 2/3 innings which is good, but not what you’d expect from a dominant major league starter.

Fly balls could be an issue as well although he only gave up five home runs in 144 2/3 innings, he gave up four home runs in 19 2/3 innings last year.  At this point, he has nowhere really to go or prove himself other then the big league team so he should be getting a spot on the Braves rotation this year.
