DateQuestionAnswer
2018-02-06 15:00:00 (link to chat)After selling at the deadline last season, I have a lot of keeper options to sort through. I am in a standard 12-team mixed-league 5x5 roto league with a $260 budget, but we use OBP instead of AVG and SV + 1/2 H instead of just saves. We can keep 5 MLB players; the first year without a price increase, in subsequent years price goes up $10 each year. We can also keep one minor leaguer (I have both Mejia and Acuna and could burn an MLB slot on one of them if I want) I have the following possible keepers: Nomar Mazara $11 Justin Turner $9 Gio Gonzalez $4 Jerad Eickhoff $2 Jon Gray $2 Julio Teheran $2 Orlando Arcia $2 Joey Gallo $1 Rafael Devers $1 Rhys Hoskins $1 Travis Shaw $1 Francisco Mejia $1 Ronald Acuna $1 Which 6 would you keep?
(bmmcmahon from Los Angeles)
As much as I think he's the safest bet here, I'm tempted to throw back Turner just based the on the savings and your quantity of $1 options. I'll say Turner, Gallo, Devers, Hoskins, Shaw, Acuna, but I wouldn't blame you for saving the money on Turner and keeping Gray instead. (Darius Austin)
2017-08-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)What kind of pitcher does Sean Newcomb evolve into?
(Sean99 from Chicago)
I know that in the Annual this year we said his upside is a No. 2. Not with a 13% walk rate, he's not. If he can develop command, I could see him being very good. But I don't see a lot of evolution on that front. He had three starts in June with a Game Score over 60 and he's 0-for-9 since. Yeah, I know, GS is not a super stat, but it's indicative at a high level. Right now he's looking to me like a Julio Teheran type of guy--talented but maddeningly inconsistent. Getting strikes is really a good thing. (Rob Mains)
2016-12-01 19:00:00 (link to chat)Which undervalued SP veterans would you aggressively be pursuing to help in 2017 only?
(SPG from LA)
Jeremy Hellickson had a solid season and will still be undervalued in '17. My strategy in most leagues this year is going to be a star-and-scrubs with starting pitchers, so this is a tough question to answer. It's all about price points. I like Julio Teheran to break out, but he's hardly a sleeper in any league. (Mike Gianella)
2016-05-17 14:00:00 (link to chat)The Red Sox need pitching. The Braves are willing to deal Julio Teheran. I didn't realize how long Teheran was under control and how cheap he is, relative to what pitchers are getting on the market now. What type of package would the Red Sox have to give up for him?
(Bryan from Boston)
Note that I am *awful* at building fake trade packages.
That being said, I've also had Teheran in my head as someone that the Red Sox (and the Dodgers) could trade for. He's a good-but-not-great young arm with years of control, so he'll cost more than you think. Coppy and Hart will likely try to squeeze someone like Rafael Devers or Michael Kopech out of this deal. Whether or not Dombrowski balks at that is another matter. (Nicolas Stellini)
2016-01-29 11:00:00 (link to chat)What do you think is the reason so many impact pitching prospects have seen significant reductions on their stuff at such an early age without suffering an injury? I'm thinking Mark Appel, Archie Bradley, Jon Gray, even Julio Teheran.
(Duffman from Cali)
Some if it adapting to throwing every fifth day rather than once a week (for the college guys). Some of it is just that some guys are at their best when they're younger and have a faster rate of attrition. Sometimes it's developmental tweaks that don't work out. Not sure there's any specific cause there. (Top 101 Chat with Craig Goldstein)
2016-01-27 19:00:00 (link to chat)Who would Anderson Espinoza's closest historical prospect comp be?
(The L Train from Behind you)
Jose Fernandez is the popular one. It's unfair because it makes people expect that kind of production so soon. A cursory look makes me think maybe Julio Teheran could be another one? To be honest this is probably a better question for the prospect staff and/or some others on the fantasy staff. (Matt Collins)
2015-10-22 14:00:00 (link to chat)Top 5 SP candidates for the Cubs this offesason are?
(Matt from Huntsville(AL))
In some order: Price, Zimmermann, Tyson Ross, Carlos Carrasco, Julio Teheran. (Off the top of my head.) (Matthew Trueblood)
2015-10-07 14:00:00 (link to chat)For the Pirates, Cubs and Rays, which team's pitching "failures" do you lick your chops more for? Salazar or Carasco from Cleveland, Gausman from Baltimore, Hutchinson from Toronto or is there another quick-fix SP noone has caught yet?
(Jake from Northern suburbs)
Are Carrasco and Salazar failures? I wouldn't put them in that category. I think Cleveland has done a solid job with their arms. I like Gausman if you can get him out of Baltimore. Also wonder if Julio Teheran could be had. (Sahadev Sharma)
2015-05-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)Just traded Julio Teheran, Drew Hutchison, and Brad Miller for Carlos Gomez, Jung-Ho Kang, and Henderson Alvarez in a keeper league with only 1 year left however...who won?
(msimotes from Kalamazoo)
You did. America did. (Christopher Crawford)
2014-12-18 15:00:00 (link to chat)I'm in a 10 team 5x5 keeper and we redraft every 4 years. We get 7 keepers and this year we redraft. With my #7 keeper, should I be keeping Javier Baez over Julio Teheran, JD Martinez, Marcell Ozuna, and Alex Wood? I had originally reserved my #7 for Oscar Taveras, unfortunately. How would you rank those players?
(Steve from Long Beach)
I think Baez is a fine option for that spot. He's boom/bust though, and you have to be comfortable with that level of risk. If you're not, I'd take Teheran or Ozuna with Wood and Martinez filling in behind them. (Craig Goldstein)
2014-05-27 11:30:00 (link to chat)I know this is not a prospect question but how do you explain Julio Teheran's relative dominance this year as opposed to the depressed scouting reports he was getting on the way up.
(Keji from Chicago)
Depressed is probably an overstatement. I think a lot of people suffered from prospect fatigue with Teheran. You probably remember seeing a lot of "ace" reports from the low minors. Then, he floundered a bit and didn't absolutely dominate like it was expected. Similar career path to Martin Perez in that regard. He's dominant because he's really freaking good. The slider is borderline unhittable this year, and I also really like the change. He may not be an "ace", but is a top of the rotation arm. (Jordan Gorosh)
2014-05-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)I just traded Julio Teheran for Justin Verlander. Even trade or will Teheran continue to outperform Verlander ROS?
(cubfan131 from IA)
That's a perfect sell-high, buy-low. That phrase is used too often and usually unrealistically ("sell high on Alfredo Simon!" ... yeah cool, cuz I can totally get Stanton for him... GTFOHWTS!!!) I LOVE Teheran (he is my NL Cy Young pick), but there is at least *some* regression coming in those numbers while I believe Verlander will iron himself out as the season evolves. Might feel scary after last night from the pair, but I like it. (Paul Sporer)
2014-05-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)I'm trying to have patience with Homer Bailey but it is becoming tough. I recently acquired Julio Teheran and Jordan Zimmerman through trades hoping to use Bailey as trade bait to upgrade my 3B slot which Bogaerts currently occupies. What 3B would you target?...I'm in need of speed, runs and RBIs.
(cruisinkc from Wisco)
Depends what you need, but I'd try something in the Matt Carpenter / Kyle Seager class. Bailey has been maddening, but the skills are still there. If you're shutout of anyone doing anything worth a lick right, go straight for the buy-low for buy-low move and ask for Carlos Santana or Brett Lawrie (Paul Sporer)
2014-04-03 19:30:00 (link to chat)Martin Perez impressed me quite a bit with his last start, albeit against a less than impressive Phillies lineup. Do you think he can improve on his below average K-rate from last year?
(Stella from Kingham MS)
I do. His changeup is a true swing and miss pitch and sometimes breaking balls take time to develop - look at Julio Teheran and Kevin Gausman. He's still young, he was just good enough that he has to develop at the major league level. He's probably never an elite bat-misser but I love his fastball from the left side. I'm a fan. (Craig Goldstein)
2014-01-17 10:00:00 (link to chat)In three years who will be the better MLB pitcher? Archie Bradley or Julio Teheran?
(Joe from Beyond the Sun)
Archie Bradley (Jason Parks)
2013-10-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think Julio Teheran will build off his success this year, and possibly use his change up more next year?
(Francis from Florida)
I think he's arrived, at last. Without the changeup. It seems like yesterday that was supposed to be his meal ticket. And early this year I was excited about his new sinker, which he threw less and less as the year went on. All this says to me he's still not fully formed. Does that mean the changeup finally returns? Who knows, but maybe if he's not working on a second fastball or refining his breaking stuff as much, he can focus on the changeup in the Spring. /speculation (Harry Pavlidis)
2013-06-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Would offering Victor Martinez and Julio Teheran for Yadier Molina in an 11-team points league where pretty much everything counts and there are 7 freezers per year be an insult?
(Yatchisin from Spitball City)
No, you're trying to cash in on Teheran's hotness. I don't think it'll get accepted, but it's not a ludicrous initial salvo to test the waters. I hate when people offer AJ Ellis & Jason Marquis for Yadi Molina and act like that's a reasonable way to test the waters. (Paul Sporer)
2013-05-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)What do you see Julio Teheran ultimately becoming? A #3 starter?
(DS from LA)
That's probably about fair. Has the potential to be a little more. But #3 is probably a decent bet. (Jason Cole)
2013-03-20 11:00:00 (link to chat)Who has a better chance of being a top 120 player next year, Julio Teheran or Jedd Gyorko?
(Brandon from Iowa)
Gyorko, especially if he's eligible at 2B, which appears to be the case. But, note my caveat from before... making the jump from MiLB hitters' parks to PETCO is a big leap. (Cory Schwartz)
2013-02-25 11:00:00 (link to chat)What did Julio Teheran do to deserve a 47 point drop? I thought he was back to his old mechanics and that his stuff was back to what it was before.
(Brady Childs from Ruston, Louisiana (Preparing for Final))
His breaking ball didn't get the memo. If it does, he will be a force. If it doesn't, he won't. (Jason Parks on the Top 101 Prospects)
2013-02-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you still see Julio Teheran's upside as another Pedro Martinez or should Braves fans temper their expectations for any immediate success?
(dan11995 from Atlanta)
I never saw his upside as another Pedro Martinez. I think he carves out a major league career, and could be a very valuable starter if the breaking ball finds its life, but he has already fallen short of immediate success. (Jason Parks)
2012-12-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thanks for the chitchat. It's such a ridiculous sample, but can I be encouraged with Julio Teheran's performance in the DR? Should I be unencouraged by his performance this season in AAA? Do I need to remember he's a kid with skills adjusting to a new country? What do I do?
(ChoppertoChipper from Edmonton)
It's good to be encouraged by Teheran's work in the DR. It doesn't change what happened in the upper minors the last two seasons, but its something positive to build on.

Yes; the kid has skills, but his biggest issue has been the development and utility of a quality breaking ball and overall command. That's not an acclimation issue. That's a pitching issue. Without a better breaking ball, Teheran won't live up to the hype. (Jason Parks)
2012-09-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you still see Julio Teheran as a top 20 talent? Teheran or Shelby Miller for the long haul?
(iorg34 from Jalalabad)
Not without a better breaking ball. Give me Miller. #Texan (Jason Parks)
2012-08-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Question on Julio Teheran. I've heard from a few places that his terrible numbers are the result of his working on a third pitch. Are there any numbers to support a large jump in curve balls thrown or should braves fans be legitimately worried?
(Okie brave from Baton rouge )
He has been working on his curve at Triple-A Gwinnett and, given his age, I'd say we're not quite at the point where we need to be legitimately concerned. It seems like he's been around forever, but he's younger than Gerrit Cole and has thrown 260 more Triple-A innings than Cole. Patience. (Bradley Ankrom)
2012-05-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)I have most of my FAAB budgeted in my keeper league for late-season prospect call ups. Guys like Hultzen, Bauer, Skaggs, and Arenado are all taken already. Who's a good bet to be called up that's not on everyone's radar (that's worth a sizable bid)?
(Don H. from Oak Park)
I'm assuming you can't bid on guys in-season until they're recalled? Anthony Rizzo, Jed Gyorko, Julio Teheran are pretty good bets for call-ups this year. Maybe Andrelton Simmons if Pastornicky fails. Leonys Martin could be up at some point late, especially if we see some Texas injuries (Hamilton and Cruz are bound to go down at some point). Wil Myers could get a September call-up. Matt Harvey could too. (Derek Carty)
2012-02-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Braves starting rotation on opening day looks like....
(Trey from Texas)
Good question. Tim Hudson just said he's going to miss the first month, so my best guess is that Jair Jurrjens, Tommy Hanson, Brandon Beachy and Mike Minor are all in there, with Randall Delgado, Julio Teheran, and perhaps Kris Medlen competing for the five spot. Wouldn't surprise me at all if the kids were to start the season in the minors because of the way that April off days limit fifth starters anyway. (Jay Jaffe)
2012-01-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)Rapid Fire: Ten fantasy rookies who will make impacts in 2012 (5 pitchers, 5 batters): _______? Go!
(Francois from Toronto)
Okay, rapid fire...
P: Yu Darvish, Matt Moore, Addison Reed, Julio Teheran, Brad Peacock
H: Jesus Montero, Yoennis Cespedes, Mike Trout, Devin Mesoraco, Tyler Pastornicky
There are certainly others that will have impacts too. I actually have an article about fantasy-worthy rookies in the Fantasy Baseball Index magazine that will hit newsstands this preseason, if you're interested in my take on other guys. (Derek Carty)
2011-08-26 16:00:00 (link to chat)Julio Teheran didn't exactly look great in his big league auditions. Can you tell me why I should still be excited about him?
(Mikey D. from Omaha)
Teheran is 20 years old with three plus pitches and is 13-2 with a 2.14 ERA in Triple-A. He's arguably the best pitching prospect in baseball and still projectable, both in terms of his stuff and pitchability. We are extremely excited about him. (John Coppolella)
2011-06-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)Jason, what's your take on the Braves decision to promote Randall Delgado over Julio Teheran? Just a timing thing or does this speak to how highly they regard Delgado as well? What is Delgado's ceiling? Thanks...
(LoyalRoyal from LV, KS)
Delgado is a very nice prospect (some scouts actually like him more than Teheran long-term), but I'm not reading into the promotion. (Jason Parks)
2011-02-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Tommy, Marc has told us who some of the players he has special love for. Care to give us a few of yours? Thanks, Dan
(DanDaMan from SeaCliff)
Hmm, let's say Mike Napoli, Angel Pagan, Jhoulys Chacin, Julio Teheran, and Shaun Marcum (Tommy Bennett)
2011-01-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)I have the 1st overall pick in this years draft out of a 16 team, H2H, 7 holdover league. I'm debating over which minors prospect might be the best one to select. I'm currently looking at: Bryce Harper, Mike Trout, Mike Moustakas, Dustin Ackley, Julio Teheran. I also realize that some of these are obviously closer to the Majors than others, or should that not be my only requirement?
(Bill from New York)
I'm far from the fantasy expert here, having given that up years ago (too much of a good thing), and you don't need Kevin Goldstein to tell you those are all great prospects. Harper is a once-in-a-lifetime kind of talent, but obviously he has no real track record as of yet. I love Trout because of his range of skills and would probably go for him just on that basis even if you won't see him for awhile, and I figure Ackley to be the most speculative of the bunch. Moustakas is probably the safest short-term play, even though I'm certain that the Royals will delay/screw up/botch his promotion in some way. They'll probably block him by luring Ruben Sierra out of retirement, or something like that. (Steven Goldman)
2009-07-15 14:00:00 (link to chat)Julio Teheran has had three good starts in a row, including 8 innings with 8 Ks the other day...any thoughts?
(RahulN from Oxford, England)
Believe . . . (Kevin Goldstein)
