Julio Teheran is a valuable trade chip, but if the Braves can't get a big enough return, they might better off holding onto the young righty.
Jim Bowden ESPN Senior Writer
As a former GM here is why Braves GM John Coppolella says he doesn't expect to trade Julio Teheran: 1. He doesn't want the player to be thinking about the possibility which could disrupt his performances. 2. He wants the leverage in trade negotiations that not only he doesn't have to trade him but is not inclined unless he is totally overwhelmed and wins the deal. 3. If he doesn't get what he wants in trade offers and holds on to the player, he's prepared the fan base for no deal. However, in their rebuilding process trading him is probably the best move based on where they are and the low inventory of quality starting pitching on the present trade market.....which should allow for a strong rebuilding trade just like the Shelby Miller trade they made in the off-season. Bottom line: ignore his comment.
