Marco Estrada pitched well in a no-decision, allowing three runs in 7 1/3 innings as the Blue Jays took down the Orioles on Monday.

Estrada made a mistake in the second inning, serving up a three-run home run to Ryan Flaherty, but that would be all of the damage the Orioles could do. He gave up four hits and a walk overall while striking out two. The right-hander stands with a 3.15 ERA, a 1.07 WHIP, and a 122/55 K/BB ratio over 174 1/3 innings. Estrada will make his final regular season start in Tampa against the Rays.
Sep 28 - 9:49 PM

Marco Estrada pitched well in a no-decision, yielding two runs in 6 2/3 innings, but the Blue Jays lost to the Yankees on Tuesday.

Estrada gave up both runs in the opening frame on a Brian McCann RBI single and a Carlos Beltran sacrifice fly. He allowed six hits, walked three, and struck out three in the effort. The underrated hurler has a 3.13 ERA, a 1.08 WHIP, and a 120/54 K/BB ratio over 167 innings. Estrada will open up the Jays' final road trip, starting in Baltimore against the Orioles.
Sep 22 - 10:58 PM

Marco Estrada limited the Braves to three hits over eight innings in the Blue Jays' 5-0 win Thursday.

Estrada didn't get a chance to go for the shutout after throwing 99 pitches through eight, and he's still yet to complete a game in 96 career starts. He has, however, been quite a starter for the Blue Jays this year. He's now 13-8 with a 3.14 ERA.
Sep 17 - 10:49 PM

Marco Estrada gave up four runs in five innings in a no-decision against the Yankees on Saturday.

Estrada has had home run issues in the past and they reared their ugly head in this one, as the ball was flying out of Yankee Stadium. He gave up six hits (including three home runs) and one walk while striking out a pair. This was the first time since July 24 that Estrada allowed more than two earned runs in a start. He'll bring a 3.31 ERA into a matchup against the Red Sox next week.
Sep 12 - 5:59 PM

Marco Estrada will start the first game in Saturday's doubleheader against the Yankees.

Estrada was scheduled to start Friday, but he'll be pushed back a day after Thursday's rainout. Marcus Stroman (knee) will make his season debut in the second game of the doubleheader.
Sep 10 - 5:36 PM

Marco Estrada held the Orioles to two runs over five innings Sunday to earn his 12th victory.

Estrada was staked to a big early lead by the Blue Jays' tremendous offense and did his part in the rout with five solid frames. The right-hander walked four but also struck out four. He will carry a 12-8 record, 3.18 ERA, and 1.09 WHIP into his next start on the road against the Yankees. That's going to be a huge four-game series at Yankee Stadium.
Sep 6 - 4:41 PM

Marco Estrada will pitch in place of Mark Buehrle against the Orioles on Sunday.

That will push the veteran southpaw back an additional day until Monday. Estrada has done a tremendous job in the Jays rotation this season, registering a 3.16 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 107/44 K/BB ratio over 142 1/3 innings.
Sep 5 - 11:02 AM

Marco Estrada pitched seven innings of two-run ball but took a no-decision as the Blue Jays needed 10 innings to defeat the Indians on Tuesday.

The only blemishes on Estrada's line were a pair of solo home runs: to Michael Brantley in the fourth inning, and to Yan Gomes in the seventh. They were two of five hits he allowed along with a walk and two strikeouts. The 32-year-old right-hander has put together a career year in Toronto, now carrying a 3.16 ERA with a 1.08 WHIP and a 107/44 K/BB ratio over 142 1/3 innings. Estrada has a date with the Red Sox at Fenway Park next.
Sep 1 - 10:43 PM

Marco Estrada pitched effectively in Thursday's loss to the Rangers, yielding one run on four hits over six innings.

Estrada struck out six and walked three while scattering four hits over his six innings of work. Mitch Moreland burned him for an RBI single in the first for the only run he allowed in the game. The right-hander has pitched to a 3.19 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 101/43 K/BB ratio over 129 2/3 innings. Up next on his schedule, a home start against the Indians.
Aug 27 - 5:50 PM

Marco Estrada pitched well in a losing effort against the Yankees on Saturday, allowing just two runs on three hits over his six frames.

Estrada walked three and punched out three on the afternoon. All of the damage inflicted against him came via the long ball, with Carlos Beltran and Mark Teixeira each belting solo home runs. Estrada has been a tremendous find for the Blue Jays this year, registering a 3.20 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 95/40 K/BB ratio over 123 2/3 innings. He'll look to get back in the win column on Saturday against the Angels in Los Angeles.
Aug 15 - 4:07 PM

Marco Estrada yielded just three hits and no runs across 6 1/3 frames in Sunday's 2-0 victory over the Yankees.

Estrada did walk three and also hit a batter, but he recorded six strikeouts and kept the Yanks off the scoreboard with an assist from LaTroy Hawkins in the seventh inning. The right-hander has been excellent over his last 10 starts, putting up a 2.24 ERA. Estrada will try to keep it going next weekend in a rematch with the Yankees at Rogers Centre.
Aug 9 - 4:32 PM

Marco Estrada held the Twins to one run in 6 2/3 innings, earning his ninth win of the season on Tuesday.

The Twins scored their only run in the fourth inning on Torii Hunter's sacrifice fly. Estrada scattered a pair of hits and a pair of walks while punching out five batters. He's given up two or fewer earned runs in eight of his last nine starts. It's no surprise then, that he has a terrific 3.40 ERA, 1.11 WHIP, and an 86/34 K/BB ratio over 111 1/3 innings. Estrada will take on the first-place Yankees in the Bronx next.
Aug 4 - 9:48 PM

Marco Estrada will start for the Blue Jays on Friday in place of Drew Hutchison.

Hutchison is still batting flu-like symptoms, so Estrada will move up a day and work on regular rest. He has been terrific the last six weeks and should be started with confidence against the Mariners.
Jul 24 - 6:09 PM

Marco Estrada had it all going Sunday, spinning eight shutout innings in a 4-0 victory over the Rays.

He yielded just three hits, didn't walk anyone and struck out five. Estrada really seems to have the Rays' number, as he flirted with a perfect game against them just a few weeks ago. The right-hander hasn't allowed more than two earned runs in any of his last six outings. Estrada will try to keep it going next weekend in Seattle.
