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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Tigers manager AJ Hinch said Tuesday that Teheran is feeling well after exiting his Grapefruit League start Monday against the Blue Jays with back tightness, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.
Teheran struck out three and gave up a run on one hit (a solo home run) in his two innings before departing from the Tigers' 4-3 loss. Hinch suggested that Teheran's removal was precautionary, as the skipper noted that the right-hander will go through his normal after-start workout Tuesday. Assuming Teheran's back responds well to the activity, he'll throw a bullpen session Wednesday, which would put him on track to make his next turn through the Tigers' rotation.
Teheran (back) does not believe his injury is serious, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.
Teheran started experiencing back tightness in the first inning of Monday's start and exited the game after only 30 pitches and two frames of work. However, he stretched his back out after exiting the contest and believes he could have re-entered the game. Teheran has made the case for a role in the rotation with his performance this spring and it doesn't appear that this injury will disrupt that.
Teheran exited Monday's outing after experiencing tightness in his back, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.
Teheran left the game after completing two innings on 30 pitches. His exit was deemed precautionary by the team, but no further details were provided. Teheran has reportedly shown increased velocity this spring in his battle for a rotation spot, though any time he is forced to miss would weaken his chances.
Teheran pitched four scoreless innings in Wednesday's Grapefruit League game against the Phillies. He allowed one hit and struck out seven.
Teheran's velocity has reportedly been up this spring and it showed on Wednesday with the seven strikeouts. The righty now has a 2.00 ERA and 12 strikeouts across 12 Grapefruit League innings, making a very compelling case for a rotation spot.
Teheran has averaged 92 mph with his fastball in his last two Grapefruit League starts, which is up from last season, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.
Teheran sat below 90 mph during most of 2020, and he struggled with a 10.05 ERA and 1.76 WHIP across 10 appearances (nine starts) with the Angels. The Tigers are hoping the righty reverts to his 2019 form, when he posted a 3.81 ERA and 1.32 WHIP across 33 starts with Atlanta. Teheran is a non-roster invitee to camp, but he could push his way onto the roster if he looks more like his old self.
Teheran said he didn't have his usual arm or leg strength after contracting COVID-19 last summer, impacting his mechanics during the season, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.
Teheran posted an atrocious 10.05 ERA in 31.1 innings with the Angels, so it's clear he was never quite right after his COVID-19 diagnosis. He ended up signing a minor-league contract with the Tigers earlier this month, but he could earn a rotation spot if he's back to full strength. The righty posted a much better 3.64 ERA with Atlanta from 2013 through 2019.
Teheran signed a minor-league contract with the Tigers on Friday that includes an invite to spring training, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.
Teheran held a showcase in January, but he ended up having to settle for a minor-league deal. His contract with Detroit will earn him $3 million if he makes the big-league roster, however. The right-hander made 10 appearances (nine starts) for the Angels last season, posting a 10.05 ERA and 1.76 WHIP over 31.1 innings.
Teheran will throw for teams at a showcase scheduled for Tuesday, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.
Teheran was Atlanta's Opening Day starter in 2019, but he left the team in 2020 to join the Angels. He struggled mightily during the abbreviated season, making 10 appearances (nine starts) while posting a career-worst 10.05 ERA and 1.76 WHIP over 31.1 innings. He'll attempt to demonstrate his abilities during his showcase Tuesday, although it's not yet clear which teams will attend.
Teheran didn't factor into the decision in Saturday's game against the Dodgers, tossing one inning and allowing three runs on two hits and two walks while fanning three.
The Angels had already indicated Teheran would be working out of the bullpen in the final games of the season, but he received another chance to start after scheduled starter Dylan Bundy (finger) was a late scratch. As has been the trend all season long, Teheran didn't take advantage of the chance and delivered another woeful performance. The Colombian ends the season with a career-worst 10.05 ERA in 10 games (nine starts) after not posting an ERA above the 4.50 mark in each of the past seven seasons.
Teheran will start Saturday's game against the Dodgers, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.
The team indicated earlier in the week that the veteran right-hander had already made his final start of the season and would work out of the bullpen this weekend, but scheduled starter Dylan Bundy (finger) was a late scratch. Teheran hasn't found much success this season with a 9.49 ERA, 1.68 WHIP and 17:14 K:BB over 30.1 innings, but he'll look to finish strong in a tough matchup versus the Dodgers.
Teheran will not make another start this season but will be available out of the bullpen for the Angels' final few games, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.
The Angels' off day Thursday means they won't need all of their starters to make one final start. Teheran certainly makes sense as the man to skip, as he owns a very disappointing 9.49 ERA and a 1.68 WHIP in 30.1 innings this season. He was already a very unexciting fantasy option as a starter given his struggles, and he's considerably less interesting as a long reliever.
Teheran (0-4) took the loss Sunday against the Rangers, allowing three runs on two hits and two walks in one-plus innings pitched. He did not record a strikeout.
The right-hander's outing got off to a rough start, with Joey Gallo taking him deep for a two-run homer in the first inning. He went out for the second but was pulled after allowing another long ball to Anderson Tejeda and a walk to Derek Dietrich. Teheran's ERA has jumped all the way up to 9.49 after allowing seven earned runs across just three innings during his last two starts. He is scheduled to make his final start of the year Saturday against the Dodgers.
Teheran allowed four runs on three hits and one walk in two innings against Arizona on Tuesday. He did not factor in the decision.
The veteran didn't give up an exorbitant number of hits, but the three he did yield all left the yard. It was the first time this season that Teheran has allowed three homers in a game, though his 3.07 HR/9 indicates a serious problem with the long ball overall. After a promising appearance against San Diego on Sept. 2, the right-hander has allowed nine earned runs over 6.2 innings across his past two starts. He'll carry an unsightly 8.90 ERA into his next start, currently slated for Sunday at home against Texas.
Teheran (0-3) allowed five earned runs on six hits and one walk while striking out four across 4.2 innings to take the loss Wednesday against the Rangers.
Teheran allowed just one earned run through four innings but imploded in his final frame. After getting the first out, he allowed four consecutive batters to reach base. The Angels bullpen also didn't help Teheran's cause, as he exited with runners on first and second, both of whom were allowed to score. Overall, Teheran has a disastrous 8.23 ERA with a 17:11K:BB across 27.1 innings. He'll look to get on track in his next outing, currently projected to come Tuesday against Arizona.
