ESPN’s Buster Olney reports that the Braves are “very open” to offers for starter Julio Teheran.

Teheran, 26, has had a tough season. He’s holding a 4.79 ERA with a 75/40 K/BB ratio in 103 1/3 innings. His ERA, strikeout, and walk rates would be career-worsts if the season were to end today. However, he’s still relatively young and is under contract for the next two seasons as well. Teheran will earn $8 million in 2018 and $11 million in 2019.

Olney notes that the Braves would want prospects in return for Teheran. The Braves also need a comparable top-of-the-rotation starter to replace Teheran, which is why the club had discussed Jose Quintana with the White Sox and Sonny Gray with the Athletics.
