The Atlanta Braves' multi-year extension spree went one step further on Friday morning, as the team announced its six-year deal with 23-year-old starting pitcher Julio Teheran. The contract runs through the 2019 season and includes an option for the 2020 campaign. The deal is worth $32.4 million, according to FOX Sports baseball insider Ken Rosenthal. The Teheran signing comes as part of general manager Frank Wren's process to lock up the team's young and talented corps: in the past two weeks, the team signed first baseman Freddie Freeman to the most lucrative contract in franchise history (eight years, $135 million) and bought out the two remaining arbitration years of outfielder Jason Heyward.
