Teheran added to NLDS roster, replacing injured Chris Martin

After all the hand-wringing about his absence from the roster, Julio Teheran will now join the Braves for the remainder of the NLDS.

The Braves have replaced injured reliever Chris Martin, who exited the game on Thursday with a strained oblique, with Julio Teheran.

Losing Martin for the eighth inning was costly in Game 1, and now the Braves will be forced to alter their rotation plans as Max Fried will reportedly move to the bullpen for the remainder of the NLDS. Fried was excellent in one inning of work on Thursday, and will now be a top relief option as Julio Teheran will likely draw the start in Game 4, according to Mark Bowman.
