Chris Kreider Jersey

ATLANTA — The San Diego Padres know they won’t be getting many innings from
their first pitcher on Sunday. The Atlanta Braves hope that isn’t the case with
their starter as well.

Atlanta right-hander Julio Teheran will make his first start since being
activated from the disabled list Saturday to face San Diego Chris
Kreider Jersey
, which will use a bullpen game in the finale of the
four-game series at SunTrust Park.

The Braves (41-29) increased their lead in the National League East to 2 1/2
games with a 1-0 victory on Saturday that guaranteed the Padres (34-39) wouldn’t
win a sixth consecutive series.

Teheran (4-4, 4.31 ERA) came out after one batter in the fifth inning of a
loss at San Diego on June 4 because of a right thumb contusion and hopes the
rest during his DL stint will help him regain some of his lost velocity.

The 27-year-old former all-star gave up three homers while losing his third
straight start. His average fastball velocity this season is 89.2 mph compared
with 91.4 mph last year.
