LAKELAND Fla. (AP) Julio Teheran allowed one run in a two-inning spring debut, leading the Atlanta Braves to a 6-4 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Thursday.
Teheran is expected to be the Braves' opening-day starter. He allowed three hits and walked one. The ace of a Braves staff that has been rocked by injuries the past two years, Teheran went 14-13 with a 2.89 ERA.
"Being the opening-day starter is a real honor, especially with the Braves," Teheran said. "It's early and I don't have everything going yet, but starting on opening day is a great honor."
