After spending almost the entire season on the injured list, right-hander Julio Teheran has been officially shut down for the remainder of the 2021 campaign. Tigers manager AJ Hinch told The Athletic’s Cody Stavenhagen and other reporters that the decision was made after Teheran “wasn’t himself” during some recent throwing sessions.

Teheran suffered a shoulder strain while warming up for his second start of the season, way back in early April. That shoulder issue simply never got better, as Teheran was also temporarily shut down from throwing in August when he was throwing at an unusually low velocity during a live batting practice session. Barring a reunion between both sides on another minor-league deal this offseason, Teheran’s tenure in Detroit will be limited to just a single start — a quality outing that saw him allow one run over five innings in a 5-2 victory over the Indians back on April 3.

Kickoff for the contest is scheduled at noon on Saturday.

Coincidentally, Teheran has been best known for his durability over his 11 MLB seasons, averaging 191 innings per year with the Braves from 2013-19. After struggling through a tough 2020 season with the Angels, Teheran settled for a minor-league pact with the Tigers, and he locked in a $3 million guaranteed salary by reaching the big-league roster. The Tigers were hoping to add an innings-eating veteran to their young rotation, though their investment in Teheran simply didn’t pan out.

It seems as though Teheran will again have to showcase himself for scouts this winter in order to reel in another minors contract, but the larger concern could be Teheran’s overall health, if he is still not able to effectively throw almost five months after his initial injury. The exact nature of Teheran’s shoulder strain isn’t known, although it wouldn’t be a surprise if some type of surgical procedure was required to fully correct the problem.

Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw to begin rehab assignment Tuesday

  Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw to begin rehab assignment Tuesday The plan is for Kershaw to throw three innings for their Triple-A affiliate in Oklahoma City. The star lefty has been out for more than 60 days, meaning he’s eligible to come off the 60-day IL at any time. Castillo also relays that another Dodgers starter, Tony Gonsolin, began a rehab assignment of his own Saturday. Both pitchers could potentially be activated soon if they don’t experience any setbacks. If this all goes according to plan, it would be great news for the Dodgers and a rotation that has had to improvise for a lot of the season because of injuries.

Unlike many programs, Nevada does not have its own indoor practice facility or access to any similar local venue. The team plans to hold walk-throughs, meetings and weight training at an off-campus hotel or other location and won't be using Stanford's locker room or shower facilities and, thus, won't be subject to Stanford's COVID-19 health and safety protocols. Nevada's first home game is set for Sept. 11 against the Idaho State Bengals. Subscribe to Yardbarker's Morning Bark, the most comprehensive newsletter in sports.
