Braves Quote For The Day ... A Rare And Beautiful Thing

Prepare yourself for the onslaught of gushing praise for the latest Atlanta Braves pitching phenom, Julio Teheran. Let the gushing begin courtesy of Kevin Goldstein at Baseball Prospectus:

Speaking to a scout currently in his fourth decade of evaluating players today, he gushed, "I've never put a higher grade on a 20-year-old pitcher in my career." Going deeper into Teheran's arsenal explains why. "He was 92-96 for me while averaging 95, and the pitch is hitter-untrackable as he hides his arm behind his back and it explodes on hitters. That combination of arm velocity and deceptive velocity is a rare and beautiful thing."

I'm giddy! Goldstein ends with this gem:

"There's power, there's touch and feel, and there's mound presence well beyond his 20 years," the scout concluded. "He's going to be a number-one starter on a championship-level team."

 If ever there was a time to be excited about a one-night-only show in baseball, it's tomorrow night.

I'm even giddier! Go check out everything that the scout had to say about Teheran at Baseball Prospectus.
