Don't look now, but Julio Teheran has arrived.

In his first 16.0 innings of 2013, Teheran surrendered 13 earned runs. 

Since then, the Colombian dynamo and former Braves prospect has posted an ERA of 2.38 over 19 starts and 121.0 innings, according to Baseball-Reference.

In the process, Teheran has elevated himself from No. 5 starter to probable Game Two starter of the NLDS behind ace Mike Minor.

Interestingly enough, former prospect Alex Wood now finds himself in position to possibly make the playoff rotation, needing to beat out Kris Medlen and Paul Maholm for the No. 4 spot. The battle for the playoff rotation will be one of the most intriguing storylines down the stretch for Atlanta, which finds itself in a position to possibly end the year with baseball's best record.
