Marco Estrada allowed three runs in seven innings and was charged with a loss to the Royals on Saturday.
He kept his team in the game with a quality start but it wasn't quite enough. He issued four walks (although none of those came back to haunt him) and struck out six batters. It was the extra-base hits that did him in. Alcides Escobar tripled and scored in the third inning, Eric Hosmer lifted a solo homer in the fourth, and Alex Gordon drove in the winning run with a triple in the seventh. Estrada falls to 4-6 with a 4.89 ERA and 1.38 WHIP on the season. Jun 24 - 5:33 PM

Marco Estrada was crushed in a no-decision against the Rangers on Monday, allowing six runs on seven hits over 3 2/3 innings.

The right-hander gave up a solo homer to Nomar Mazara in the first inning then kept the Rangers off the board until a four-run uprising that chased Estrada in the fourth. He has been mired by inconsistency this season and now sports a troublesome 4.98 ERA and 1.39 WHIP. He'll try to get back on track when he takes on the Royals on Saturday.
Jun 20 - 12:26 AM

Marco Estrada was crushed in Tuesday's loss to the Rays, giving up six runs on 12 hits in only 3 1/3 innings.

Estrada struck out two and didn't issue a walk in the ballgame. After navigating through two scoreless innings, the Rays broke through with a solo homer from Taylor Featherston and a three-run blast from Logan Morrison in the third inning. They'd add another pair on an RBI double from Evan Longoria in the fourth to end Estrada's night. The veteran right-hander will look to regroup when he does battle against the Rangers in Arlington on Monday.
Jun 13 - 10:26 PM

Marco Estrada allowed four earned runs, seven hits and a walk with eight strikeouts over 5 2/3 innings in a loss Tuesday at Oakland.

Estrada threw 56 of his 90 pitches for strikes, falling to 0-2 with a 10.61 ERA in two outings since flipping the calendar to June. His ERA has risen from 3.15 to 4.04 as a result of the two poor outings. His next scheduled start is set for Tuesday, June 13 against the Rays.
Jun 7 - 2:18 AM

Marco Estrada gave up nine hits and seven runs over 3 2/3 innings in a loss to the Yankees on Thursday.

Estrada had given up a total of seven runs in his previous three starts combined, so it was clearly just an off night for the 33-year-old. What continues to be a concern is the long ball -- with two homers allowed Thursday, Estrada has now given up eight in his last six starts. His ERA jumped from 3.15 to 3.86 with the loss, and he's now 4-3 in 12 starts. He'll try to shake it off and get back on the horse Tuesday against the Athletics.
Jun 1 - 11:52 PM

Marco Estrada beat the Rangers on Saturday by allowing just one run in six innings of work.

He allowed a home run to the first batter of the game but was lights out from then on. He surrendered only four hits and one walk in the game and punched out eight batters. His excellent 78/17 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 68 2/3 innings has led to a fine 3.15 ERA in eleven starts. He will put his 4-2 record on the line against the Yankees on Thursday.
May 27 - 4:45 PM

Marco Estrada was dominant on Sunday in Baltimore, holding the Orioles to one run while striking out 12 batters in the Blue Jays' 3-1 victory.

The one run he gave up came on a solo shot by Adam Jones in the bottom of the fourth inning. Estrada yielded just five hits in all and issued only one walk. He stands 3-2 with a 3.30 ERA, 1.13 WHIP, and 70/16 K/BB ratio over 62 2/3 innings (10 starts) this season. Next up is a start at home versus the Rangers.
May 21 - 4:24 PM

Marco Estrada allowed five earned runs over six innings Tuesday in a no-decision versus the Braves.

Estrada walked none and struck out five in the outing, but he surrendered two runs in the first inning on a Matt Kemp single, one run in the fourth inning on a base hit by Jace Peterson, and then the right-hander served up a two-run homer to Freddie Freeman in the top of the fifth. Atlanta went on to win the game 9-5. Estrada will carry a 3.60 ERA and 1.18 WHIP into his next start on the road against the Orioles.
May 16 - 7:21 PM

Marco Estrada struck out eight Mariners while allowing two runs over six innings in a win Thursday.

Things were a little precarious early, as Estrada served up a two-run home run to Nelson Cruz in the first inning, but he settled down to hold the M's off the board for the rest of his time. It was the third time in eight starts this year that the right-hander has struck out eight or more, and he's now got 53 strikeouts through 49 innings of work. Overall, Estrada is 2-2 with a 3.12 ERA and 1.16 WHIP. An interleague date with the struggling Braves is on tap for Tuesday.
May 11 - 10:14 PM

Marco Estrada was charged with a loss after surrendering five runs in six innings to the Rays on Saturday.

He gave up six hits and two walks while striking out seven in the losing effort. Most of the damage came on a pair of two-run homers hit by Logan Morrison and Colby Rasmus. It was a rare clunker for Estrada, who saw his ERA rise from 2.43 to 3.14 with the bad game. He has 45 strikeouts and just 12 walks in 43 innings spread over seven starts. He will climb the hill to face the Mariners on Thursday.
May 6 - 7:58 PM

Marco Estrada delivered seven innings of one-run ball Monday in the Blue Jays' 7-1 win over the Yankees.

Estrada scattered seven hits over those seven frames, walking none and striking out five. The one run he gave up came on an RBI single from hot-hitting Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge in the bottom of the fourth. Estrada boasts an ace-like 2.43 ERA, 1.14 WHIP, and 38 strikeouts through 37 innings (six starts) this season. His next start is at Tampa Bay.
May 1 - 10:31 PM

Marco Estrada struck out nine while limiting the Cardinals to two runs over six innings on Tuesday in the Blue Jays' 6-5 extra-innings victory.

Estrada pitched out of a bases-loaded, no-out jam in the fourth inning, and that was the last time the Cards mounted anything against him. The right-hander permitted six hits and one walk on the night and was in line for his first win of the season before the Toronto bullpen coughed up the lead. Estrada will bring a 2.70 ERA into Sunday’s matchup versus the Rays.
Apr 26 - 12:30 AM

Marco Estrada blanked the Red Sox for six innings and struck out seven on Thursday.

Estrada has a 2.63 ERA after four starts, but he's still looking for his first victory. He's probably used to it at this point; even last season, when Toronto had a better offense, he settled for a 9-9 record to go along with his 3.48 ERA.
Apr 20 - 3:56 PM

Marco Estrada was dominant but had to settle for a no-decision against the Orioles on Saturday, scattering four hits over seven shutout innings of work.

Estrada racked up eight strikeouts on the impressive afternoon while walking three. The Jays didn't scratch out a run for him until the bottom half of the seventh inning, which would have held up had Roberto Osuna not surrendered a run in the ninth. It was a nice rebound from a disastrous first two starts and Estrada now sports a respectable 3.50 ERA and 1.28 WHIP on the young season. He'll look to replicate this fine outing when he does battle against the Angels in Los Angeles on Friday.
Apr 15 - 3:55 PM

Marco Estrada was hit hard in a losing effort against the Rays on Sunday, surrendering five runs on seven hits in his five innings of work.

Estrada punched out five while walking two on the day. All of the damage against him came via the long ball, with Corey Dickerson and Jesus Sucre launching solo homers and Steven Souza delivering a three-run blast. Estrada will look to improve upon a 5.73 ERA and 1.45 WHIP when he does battle against the Orioles at home on Saturday.
