Julio Teheran surpassed the 150-inning threshold in his last start and he shoots for 160 on Saturday.
The decline of his electric stuff has been gradual; he’s still a productive starter but no longer the front-line guy that he was not long ago. He only strikes out twice as many batters as he walks compared to his opponent in this game, Clay Buchholz, who K’s nearly four times as many as he walks at an advanced age.
The next step for Teheran will be to reinvent his approach. I trust he can do it because he’s stayed relatively healthy over his career and has a lot of experience at this point. He’s a guy I’d like to see improve as he ages and have a sort of second career in his 30s.
Clay Buchholz wasn’t much on the radar in the winter-time and even in the spring but he came on this summer for Arizona and has been a revelation, more than making up for the early loss of Taijuan Walker.
Buchholz is 7–2 and may reach 100 innings on the year in this start, if he’s really good. He’s pitching to an ERA just over 2.00 and a WHIP a shade over 1.00.
The D’Backs would love to be in better position for the playoffs so that they can manage his innings ahead of the playoffs but they aren’t, so they’ll ride him as far as possible.
