Detroit Tigers shut down Julio Teheran; Alex Lange is 'pitching for a job'

CINCINNATI — The 2021 season is over for Detroit Tigers right-hander Julio Teheran, who made just one start in his 11th MLB season.

On the injured list since April 10 with a right shoulder strain, the 30-year-old pitched bullpen sessions and live batting practices in Lakeland, Florida, but the Tigers paused his rehabilitation because of low velocity. Still, Teheran wanted to keep trying.

With just 25 games remaining, the Tigers officially called it quits.

"Teheran is out for the year, so we can announce that," Tigers manager AJ Hinch said Sunday.
