MLB Rumors: Julio Teheran

The starting rotation in Atlanta is starting to get healthy again. Carroll Rogers of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that pitcher Ervin Santana "threw a bullpen Wednesday afternoon and came away saying his right thumb felt good. He is on track to return to the rotation Saturday against the Cubs."

When will Santana join Braves rotation?

The Atlanta Braves are starting the season more than a bit short-handed in their starting rotation. With Kris Medlen and Brandon Beachy both out of the equation due to Tommy John surgeries, the team signed free agent Ervin Santana to try and help fill some of that glaring void. However, Santana is not yet ready to throw.

Medlen has all but resigned himself to the inevitability of Tommy John surgery, and it's starting to sound like Beachy might be headed under the knife as well.

Maholm could be odd man out

An MRI performed on the elbow of Paul Maholm on Wednesday showed no signs of any serious injury, so the Atlanta Braves pitcher is not expected to miss more than one start. However, chances are that even if he were fully healthy, he'd be the odd man out in terms of making the team's rotation for the playoffs.

No starting pitcher should be expected to win each and every time they get the ball. But while pitchers like Justin Verlander and Clayton Kershaw have earned the reputation of being staff aces over many years, the Miami Marlins may have found someone with the same kind of lofty expectations in rookie Jose Fernandez.

When the Atlanta Braves traded first Tommy Hanson and then Randall Delgado this winter, they created an opening at the back of their rotation -- and perhaps gave one of their top prospects an indirect confidence boost he needed to seize the job.

Braves' bright future

The Atlanta Braves won 94 games in 2012 and qualified for one of the wild card spots. They ranked No. 4 in the National League in team ERA and No. 7 in runs scored with exactly 700. It's a solid club that relied on pitching, both from the rotation and the bullpen, solid defense at some key spots -- shortstop, centerfield and right field, particularly -- and timely hitting. The results may only get better, too.

The Braves and Justin Upton

When Justin Upton rejected a trade to the Seattle Mariners last week among the first thoughts included the idea that perhaps the right fielder prefers the east coast, and most of all may be looking to be deal to the Atlanta Braves where his older brother just signed a long-term contract. The Baltimore Orioles and Texas Rangers have also had discussions with the Diamondbacks and none of the above three clubs are on Upton's no-trade list.

David O'Brien reports via Twitter that the Braves have not had renewed talks with the D-backs about Upton since the news broke of the vetoed trade to the Mariners and a source told Rumor Central recently that GM Frank Wren is unlikely to part with top prospects such as Julio Teheran in a package for Upton. Arizona general manager Kevin Towers said over the weekend that the asking price for Upton will not change, either, so Atlanta may be a pipe dream for Upton for the time being.

The New York Mets and San Diego Padres have also been mentioned but the price in young talent has proven too great thus far. The Rangers, still, appear to be the best fit, but GM Jon Daniels stated last week that they have made their best offer.
