Julio Teheran: Rebooting career in Mexico
Teheran agreed to a contract Wednesday with Toros de Tijuana of the Mexican League, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.
Teheran, who most recently pitched for the Staten Island Ferry Hawks of the independent Atlantic League of Professional Baseball, will head south of the border as he looks to keep his career alive. The 31-year-old last appeared in the majors in 2021 with the Tigers, when he made one start in April before going down with a shoulder injury that sidelined him for the remainder of the season....

Julio Teheran: Finds work in Atlantic League
Teheran signed with the Staten Island FerryHawks of the Atlantic League on Thursday.
Teheran took the ball on Opening Day for the FerryHawks and allowed one earned run across four innings to go along with four strikeouts. The longtime major-league starter managed only five innings with Detroit in 2021, as he battled a shoulder injury for much of the campaign. He held several throwing showcases this spring, but apparently that wasn't enough to pique interest from a major-league club. Though a comeback to the majors could in store for Teheran, it is on hold for now.... See More ... See Less
Julio Teheran: Another showcase on tap
Teheran has a throwing showcase for major-league teams scheduled for Thursday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.
Teheran also took part in a throwing showcase over the weekend and now has another one scheduled for Thursday. The 31-year-old went down with a strained shoulder after making one start for Detroit last season, and he struggled in 2020 with a 10.05 ERA over 31.1 innings. Teheran may have to settle for a minor-league deal, even with a strong showing at the showcase.... See More ... See Less
Julio Teheran: Holds throwing showcase
Teheran (shoulder) was one of three MLB veterans who took part Saturday in a throwing showcase in Miami in front of multiple teams, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.
Along with Teheran, Anibal Sanchez and Erasmo Ramirez took part in the showcase as all three looked to prove to clubs that they're healthy and still capable of contributing in the majors. Sanchez was seemingly the most impressive of the group, as Heyman notes that the 38-year-old received a contract offer 10 minutes after his throwing session before he ultimately landed a minor-league deal with the Nationals on Sunday. Teheran, meanwhile, remains unsigned at the moment and may have to wait for more free-agent pitchers to come off the market before he's extended a contract. After earning a spot in the Tigers' Opening Day rotation last spring, Teheran made only one start before he was diagnosed with a shoulder strain that sidelined him for the rest of the season. He appears to be healthy now, but Teheran may have to prove himself at the Triple-A level before getting another look in the majors.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Julio Teheran: Done for the season
The Tigers shut down Teheran (shoulder) for the 2021 season, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.
Teheran suffered a shoulder strain in early April after making one start, which was a five-inning, one-run effort against Cleveland on April 3. He'll presumably be ready for the beginning of 2022, although it remains to be seen which club the pending free agent will pitch for next season.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Julio Teheran: Shut down from throwing
Teheran (shoulder) was shut down from throwing after showing a drop in velocity and will be reevaluated, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.
Teheran threw a live bullpen session Saturday but will now have his rehab program halted due to a dip in velocity. The 30-year-old was already looking at a potential return in mid-to-late September, so any shutdown of more than a few days may end his prospects of pitching again this season.... See More ...

Tigers' Julio Teheran: Not close to return
Tigers general manager Al Avila said last week that Teheran (shoulder) has a chance to return from the 60-day injured list in late September, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.
Updates on Teheran have been scarce since he was diagnosed April 11 with a right shoulder strain, and that's likely a reflection of the limited progress he's made in his rehab over the past three-plus months. Given that Teheran isn't even close to beginning a rehab assignment following his prolonged shutdown, the Tigers are bracing for the likelihood that he won't pitch again in 2021. Teheran is 30 years old and set to become a free agent this winter, so Detroit has little incentive to rush him back when he probably doesn't have much of a future in the organization....

Tigers' Julio Teheran: Not yet throwing
Teheran (shoulder) hasn't yet resumed throwing, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports.
Teheran has been on the 60-day injured list with a shoulder strain since April 11, and manager A.J. Hinch said Saturday that the right-hander is still "pretty far away" from returning. Teheran is eligible to return from the injured list in early June, but it appears as though he'll miss significantly more time. A better idea of his return timetable could come into focus once he's able to resume throwing.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Julio Teheran: Moves to 60-day IL
The Tigers transferred Teheran to the 60-day injured list Sunday, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports.
Teheran was placed on the 10-day IL on Saturday with a shoulder strain, but the Tigers didn't immediately specify how long the injury might keep the right-hander on the shelf. The club's decision to transfer Teheran to the 60-day IL a day later implies that his shoulder injury is a rather significant one, and he'll now be sidelined until at least early June as a result. The transaction opens up a spot on the 40-man roster for first baseman/designated hitter Renato Nunez, whose contract was selected from the alternate site ahead of Sunday's series finale in Cleveland. Derek Holland and Michael Fulmer covered most of the innings while filling in for Teheran in a tandem start earlier this weekend, but Spencer Turnbull will most likely be the long-term replacement for Teheran upon returning from the COVID-19 injured list....

Tigers' Julio Teheran: Placed on 10-day injured list
Teheran has been placed on the 10-day injured list due to a right shoulder strain, retroactive to April 7.
Teheran was scratched from his scheduled start against Cleveland on Friday due to triceps tightness, and he's now been diagnosed with a shoulder strain that will force him to miss additional time. Alex Lange was recalled by the Tigers in a corresponding move. Derek Holland could fill in as a starter while Teheran is sidelined.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Julio Teheran: Scratched from scheduled start
Teheran was scratched from Friday's start against Cleveland due to triceps tightness.
Teheran went through his pre-game throwing program Friday, but he was shut down as a precautionary measure due to a triceps issue. The severity of the injury isn't yet known, but left-hander Derek Holland will start in his place against Cleveland.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Julio Teheran: Earns win with five solid frames
Teheran (1-0) earned the victory Saturday against Cleveland after allowing one run on four hits with three strikeouts and three walks over five innings.
The 30-year-old had a back issue crop up down the stretch during spring training, but he was able to throw 90 pitches and gave up only one run via a solo homer in his Tigers debut. Teheran lines up to face Cleveland again Friday for his second outing of the season.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Julio Teheran: Cleared to start second game
Teheran (back) is scheduled to start the Tigers' second game of the season Saturday versus Cleveland, Evan Petzold of The Detroit Free Press reports.
Teheran battled back tightness in his fourth outing of the spring March 22, but he was able to quickly move past the injury to stay on schedule with his throwing progression. He made his final start over the weekend against the Phillies, giving up six runs in 3.2 innings. While he finished the spring with a 5.52 ERA, Teheran's 0.89 WHIP, .176 batting average allowed and 18:4 K:BB in 14.2 innings were better indicators of how well he pitched. He should be available to cover approximately five or six innings in his regular-season debut.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Julio Teheran: Wins roster spot
The Tigers selected Teheran's (back) contract Wednesday and added him to the 40-man and active rosters.
Tigers manager A.J. Hinch informed Teheran on Wednesday that he secured a spot in the Opening Day rotation after the non-roster invitee following four impressive appearances in Grapefruit League play. Over 11 innings, Teheran posted a 2.45 ERA and 0.64 WHIP while racking up 15 strikeouts. Detroit opened up a spot for Teheran on the roster and in the rotation by placing Spencer Turnbull on the COVID-19 injured list in a corresponding move. Turnbull isn't expected to be in store for a lengthy absence, so Teheran may need to pitch well in his first start or two with Detroit to strengthen his case for holding down a rotation spot when the Tigers' pitching staff is back to full strength....
