The Braves have made one heck of a commitment to their future.
The Braves have inked their young RHP to a 6-year extension, with a team option in 2020. This comes off the heels of just one full season, but what a season it was, Teheran threw in 186 innings with an ERA of 3.20, 14-8 record and 170/45 K/BB ratio all at just age 22.
The contract guarantees Teheran $32.4 million, it’s clear the Braves didn’t want anyone scooping up their young potential ace. Good investment.
