Braves’ Julio Teheran sent home with illnesss

By Matt Johnson

It seems like the Atlanta Braves lose a member of their rotation every day. This time around, it’s starting pitcher Julio Teheran.

According to David O’Brien of The Atlanta Journal-Constiution, the 27-year-old was sent back to Atlanta in advance of the team’s series against the Milwaukee Brewers.

Teheran is scheduled to pitch on Tuesday against the Toronto Blue Jays, so this move is purely precautionary to prevent him from spreading the illness in the clubhouse. He should be ready to pitch next week.
