DONE DEAL : Baltimore Orioles has confirm the signing of another former Braves pitcher

The Baltimore Orioles are taking a chance on a former Atlanta Braves pitcher.

The Orioles have signed former Braves pitcher Julio Teheran to a minor league contract, according to Jon Heyman of the New York Post.
Teheran signed with the Braves as an international free agent in 2007. Early in his career, the new Orioles addition appeared to be on the verge of pitching glory.

The Colombian right-hander finished seventh in the 2013 NL Rookie of the Year voting, with a 3.20 ERA and 170 strikeouts in 30 starts in his first full season with the Braves. In his All-Star 2014 season, he reduced his ERA to 2.89 with 186 strikeouts in 33 starts.

Teheran was only 25 years old when he received his second All-Star nomination in 2016. However, Teheran has reverted to a middle-of-the-rotation starter since that season, with an ERA of approximately 4.00 from 2017 to 2019.

Teheran had forgettable spells with the Los Angeles Angels and Detroit Tigers before joining the Milwaukee Brewers’ rotation last season. Teheran went 3-5 with a 4.40 ERA with the Brewers, but only appeared in 14 games (11 starts) because to a chronic right hip ailment.

The Orioles have made pitching a top focus this offseason. They recently traded for former Cy Young winner Corbin Burnes and have been connected to another elite pitcher to strengthen their rotation.
