Teheran, Delgado likely September callups
CHICAGO -- Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez is expecting Julio Teheran and Randall Delgado to be among the players added to the Braves' Major League roster in September. But the two highly regarded pitching prospects might have to wait until Triple-A Gwinnett's season is complete.

"You'd like to get those guys experience," Gonzalez said of the two young right-handed pitchers who have both started their Major League careers with a pair of spot starts this year.

There is a chance either Teheran or Delgado could make a start in September, if necessary, or to possibly provide rest to one of the regular rotation members down the stretch. But they would likely be primarily utilized out of the Braves' bullpen.

The Braves have already bolstered their bullpen with Arodys Vizcaino, and filled a void in their rotation with Mike Minor. Teheran, Vizcaino, Delgado and Minor stand as the club's top four pitching prospects, and it appears each could be in the Majors as Atlanta attempts to clinch a second consecutive playoff appearance in September.

Along with Teheran and Delgado, the Braves are expected to also add right-handed reliever Anthony Varvaro and backup catcher J.C. Boscan to their Major League roster once Gwinnett's season concludes.
