Tomahawk Chops: Daily Atlanta Braves News Clippings For Monday, March 5th

Not the best start to the spring for Julio Teheran.

Your one-page daily morning overview of Atlanta Braves news:

Teheran (six HRs) rocked in Braves’ 18-3 loss | Atlanta Braves
"That’s an experience," said Teheran, who gave up more homers in two innings than he allowed in 144-2/3 innings in Triple-A last season (five). Asked if he’d ever gone though anything similar, he said, "Never. No." If this were a regular season game, six homers would have been the most allowed by any Atlanta or Milwaukee Braves pitcher. In major league history, according to ESPN Stats and Info, no pitcher in a regular-season game has allowed six homers while recording six outs, nor has any pitcher had a six-hit, six-homer line in a regular season game.

Julio Teheran, Randall Delgado have stuff to work on | News
"I've seen both of those guys pitch at the end of last year and they did not pitch that way," Braves catcher David Ross said. "What are they, 21 [years-old]? And it's the first outing of Spring Training and they're starting for the first time in Spring Training? There's a lot that goes into that. But I'm not making any excuses, either. We've got stuff we need to work on and we've got to get better at getting ahead of hitters."

Hanson, Freeman move closer to return | News
The Braves received some encouraging news on the health-related front on Sunday as Freddie Freeman and Tommy Hanson both moved closer to being cleared to play in Grapefruit League games.

"I was messed up mentally," Prado said. "I wasn't clear what I needed to do in different situations. To me, it felt like I had so much pressure on me. Nobody was putting pressure on me. I was putting pressure on myself. I wasn't having fun. Even when things went good, I was thinking too much."

Terdoslavich continues to impress at camp | News
"I'm very excited about the opportunity I've been given, just to be here in big league camp to see how it is run," Terdoslavich said. "Growing up in Sarasota [Fla.], I got to watch it when I was younger -- the White Sox, the Reds and the Red Sox for a short period of time. It's good to see it, but it's different watching on the outside and actually being a part of it."

Gwinnett stadium promises fall short |
Developers have asked Gwinnett County for permission to scale back a large commercial center at Coolray Field and build more apartments instead, altering a concept county officials used to justify spending $64 million on the baseball stadium.
