The Angels have signed RHP Julio Teheran to a 1-year deal worth $9M.

Teheran, 28, is coming off a season in which he went 10-11 with a 3.81 ERA in 33 games across 174.2 innings with 162 Strikeouts.

He has pitched in 9 seasons in the big leagues and all have come with the Atlanta Braves. The Braves signed Teheran as an amateur free agent in July of 2007, and he would go on to make his debut in 2011, at the age of 20. Teheran has a career ERA of 3.67 across those 9 seasons (2011-19′) in the big leagues.

In his career, he has a win-loss record of 77-73 in 229 games across 1,360 innings pitched along with 1184 strikeouts. He has started 30 or more games in each of the past 7 seasons for Atlanta, along with being a 2-time All-Star (2014,16′).

Julio Teheran is a solid name to add the Angels rotation, which has struggled to get innings out of the starting rotation in recent years.

He is not the household name that many Angels fans were hoping to add, but he does provide some stability since he has become a mainstay in MLB he has averaged 191 innings from 2013-2019.


Teheran is now scheduled to be in the starting rotation along with new acquisition RHP Dylan Bundy as well as LHP Andrew Heaney, RHP Shohei Ohtani, and RHP Griffin Canning.
The Angels do also have LHP Patrick Sandoval, LHP Jose Suarez, RHP Jaime Barria, and LHP Dillon Peters as depth for the starting rotation.
