'No problems' for Teheran in 'pen session
LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- Julio Teheran provided the Braves some relief on Saturday, when he completed a 25-pitch bullpen session with approximately 75 percent effort in a pain-free manner. Teheran had experienced some upper arm stiffness after pitching against the Cardinals on Monday.

"He had no problems," Braves pitching coach Roger McDowell said.

Teheran will complete a bullpen session with maximum effort on Tuesday. If all goes well, he will likely start one of the split-squad games against the Astros on Friday.

Teheran -- ranked by MLB.com as the Braves' top prospect and the game's fourth-best prospect -- is battling Randall Delgado to begin the year as the fifth starter.

Because he does not need a fifth starter until April 11, Atlanta manager Fredi Gonzalez said he might wait at least another week before announcing which of these prospects will begin the year in the Majors.
