Marco Estrada earned a quality start in a losing effort Tuesday, allowing three runs on five hits over six innings against the Cardinals.
Estrada was outdueled by Cardinals starter Shelby Miller, but the right-hander was decent for a third consecutive start to begin the year. Estrada walked only one while striking out three in the loss, and he's got a 3.06 ERA and 1.13 WHIP through three starts. Estrada will look to continue his string of strong outings Sunday when the Brewers visit the Pirates. Apr 15 - 10:59 PM

Marco Estrada picked up his first win after allowing two runs in six innings Thursday against the Phillies.

This is basically what we should expect from Estrada going forward: lots of starts with one, two or three runs allowed in about six innings of work. He'll give up homers, so he won't sport a particularly strong ERA, but his WHIP should be nice all year long. How much fantasy value he'll have will largely be determined by the run and bullpen support he gets. Tonight, he had plenty of both.
Apr 10 - 10:18 PM

Marco Estrada held the Red Sox to two runs -- one earned -- over 5 2/3 innings on Friday.

Estrada walked three, but not without a fight; two of those came on 10-pitch at-bats from Mike Napoli. He also struck out six in the no-decision.
Apr 4 - 5:50 PM

Marco Estrada blanked the Royals for five innings in Milwaukee's 7-2 win Saturday.

Estrada, who wasn't guaranteed a rotation spot after the Matt Garza signing, ends a fantastic spring 4-0 with a 2.25 ERA. He'll be a decent play in mixed leagues most weeks. Probably not in week one, though, since he's going to face the Red Sox in Boston.
Mar 29 - 5:42 PM

Marco Estrada pitched in a Class-A game on Sunday to remain on his regular schedule, allowing one run on three hits over six innings of work.

Estrada piled up eight strikeouts while walking only one. After a strong finish to the 2013 campaign, he has picked up right where he left off and looks very strong this spring.
Mar 23 - 9:57 PM

Marco Estrada blanked the Rangers over six innings in Tuesday's start.

Estrada was excellent, allowing only four hits while avoiding the walk and striking out five. His Cactus League ERA falls to 2.70 in 20 innings of work, and he's carrying a scoreless streak of 12 consecutive innings.
Mar 18 - 6:18 PM

Marco Estrada shut out the Padres over 5 2/3 innings during Thursday's start.

Estrada allowed five hits, including three doubles, but stayed away from the walk and struck out three. The right-hander has pitched effectively in each of the last two seasons for the Brewers. He will be a good source of strikeouts in mixed leagues.
Mar 13 - 5:56 PM

Marco Estrada struggled in his second Cactus League start on Saturday, surrendering three runs on seven hits over 3 1/3 innings against the Cubs.

The 30-year-old right-hander fanned one and didn't walk a batter in the game. He still has plenty of time to get the kinks worked out before the start of the regular season. While he's inconsistent and carries ratio risk, Estrada's high-strikeout potential makes him a worthy option as a mid-round starter in mixed leagues.
Mar 8 - 9:19 PM

Marco Estrada allowed one run in three innings of work against the Cubs on Monday.

Estrada allowed four hits, but only one that mattered: a solo home run to Javier Baez in the second inning. The right-hander performed well for the Brewers last season, posting a 3.87 ERA in 128 innings over 21 starts. He faces some competition for a spot at the back of the rotation now, though.
Mar 3 - 7:32 PM

Brewers avoided arbitration with RHP Marco Estrada by agreeing to a one-year, $3.325 million contract.

Estrada, who was arbitration-eligible for the second time, can earn an additional $100,000 in innings pitched bonuses. The right-hander put up a 3.87 ERA over 21 starts for the Brewers last season.
Jan 17 - 1:26 PM

Marco Estrada worked seven innings of one-run ball, surrendering just two hits, in Sunday's no-decision against the Mets.

He struck out eight and walked none. Estrada went just 1-0 this month despite allowing only five runs in 27 2/3 frames. In nine starts since early August when Estrada was activated from the disabled list, he allowed one run or less six times. Estrada ends the campaign 7-4 with a 3.87 ERA and 1.08 WHIP.
Sun, Sep 29, 2013 04:28:00 PM

Marco Estrada allowed two hits over seven innings in the Brewers' 5-0 win over the Braves on Monday.

It's far too late for those who overvalued him on draft day, but Estrada has closed strong, going 3-0 with a 2.26 ERA in eight starts since coming off the DL last month. He'll face the Mets in his last start of the year.

Marco Estrada allowed three runs over seven innings in a no-decision against the Cubs on Tuesday.

Estrada was rolling along until the seventh inning, when he allowed three runs -- including a two-run home run with two outs -- to deprive him of a win. He was otherwise stout, giving up just four hits and a walk while striking out seven on the evening. Estrada faces the Cardinals, a team he held to two hits over 6 2/3 innings his last time out, on Sunday.
Wed, Sep 18, 2013 12:31:00 AM

Marco Estrada held the Cardinals to one run in 6 2/3 innings on Wednesday but the Brewers lost.

Estrada was sharp throughout the night, yielding just two hits and fanning six, but the Cardinals rallied late and were able to secure their second straight victory against Milwaukee. Estrada will carry a 4.29 ERA into his next scheduled outing at home against the Cubs.
Wed, Sep 11, 2013 11:18:00 PM

Marco Estrada surrendered four runs in seven innings Saturday as the Brewers fell to the Angels.

Estrada escaped with a no-decision because the Angels didn't break through until the top of the ninth inning. The right-hander struck out eight and issued only one walk, but the Anaheim offense tagged him for nine hits and Estrada watched his ERA rise to 4.49. He might have to be a matchup-to-matchup guy in fantasy leagues going forward. An outing at Wrigley Field is next on the docket.
