Marco Estrada allowed just one hit over seven scoreless innings and struck out eight in defeating the Mariners on Monday.

Estrada was lifted after walking Leonys Martin on four pitches to start the eighth. The Jays got through that frame unscathed, but barely held on to win 3-2 in the ninth after Martin homered. Estrada is 9-9 with a 3.62 ERA. He's struck out 154 in 164 innings this year. During his fantastic 2015 season, he struck out just 131 in 181 innings.

Marco Estrada has been pitching through a herniated disc, per Jon Morosi of FOX Sports.

That might help explain why Estrada has allowed 25 runs -- 24 earned -- over his last 28 2/3 innings. That's a 7.53 ERA covering his last six starts. The right-hander got tagged for four earned runs over 5 1/3 innings Wednesday by the lowly Rays, falling to 8-9 on the season and 3-6 in the second half. All that said, the Blue Jays can't really afford to give Estrada any time off as they try to cling to one of the American League Wild Card spots. There should be more on this over the weekend.

Marco Estrada was lit up for four earned runs in 5 1/3 innings Wednesday as the Blue Jays fell to the Rays.

The second ugly loss in a row for the Jays, who are trying to cling to an American League Wild Card spot but have gone 3-9 in September. Estrada struck out seven but walked three and gave up four hits, including a two-run homer to Kevin Kiermaier in the top of the fourth inning. The veteran right-hander has allowed 13 runs -- 12 earned -- over his last 12 2/3 innings. He lines up to face the Mariners on the road next.
Sep 14 - 3:39 PM

Marco Estrada was hit hard in Friday's loss to the Red Sox, allowing four runs (three earned) on six hits in just 2 1/3 innings of work.

The right-hander also walked three while striking out two. It's certainly not how the Blue Jays wanted to start an important three-game set as both squads battle for a postseason berth. Even with the rough outing, Estrada still owns a 3.68 ERA and 1.15 WHIP on the season. He'll look to get back on track when he takes on the Rays on Wednesday.
Sep 9 - 11:09 PM

Marco Estrada allowed five runs over five-plus innings in Saturday's loss to the Rays.

Estrada held the Rays to two hits over his first five innings before going off the rails in the sixth. He allowed four straight singles to plate a run, then walked in a run before a three-run double ended his night. He walked two while striking out six in the outing. The loss was the third in his last five starts, dropping him to 8-7 with a 3.56 ERA and 1.10 WHIP in 24 starts overall. Estrada will look for a better finish Friday against the Red Sox.
Sep 3 - 9:51 PM

Marco Estrada fired six innings of one-run ball in Monday’s 5-1 win over the Orioles.

Estrada gave up just four hits, with the lone run coming on a solo homer from J.J. Hardy in the third inning. He struck out four and walked a pair in the victory. Estrada had allowed 11 runs over his previous two starts, so this was an encouraging step in the right direction. He’ll bring a 3.37 ERA into a start against the Yankees on the road this weekend.
Aug 29 - 9:46 PM

Marco Estrada got beat around for six runs in five innings and was charged with a loss against the Angels on Wednesday.

He gave up 10 hits, including a pair of first-inning home runs. He struck out four and issued three free passes. It was a rare clunker in what has been a solid season for the former Brewer. His record falls to 7-6 with a 3.47 ERA. He lines up against the Orioles on Monday in the first of two starts next week.
Aug 24 - 11:28 PM

Marco Estrada allowed five runs over just five innings but escaped with a no-decision in Tuesday's 12-6 victory over the Yankees.

It was Estrada's shortest outing of the season, as he served up three home runs on the night and was chased after throwing just 59 pitches. However, the Blue Jays rallied against the Yankees' bullpen to get him off the hook. The veteran right-hander will try for better results next week in a nice two-start slate versus the Angels and Twins.
Aug 17 - 12:02 AM

Marco Estrada didn't have his best stuff Tuesday, allowing three runs -- two earned -- on seven hits and four walks over five frames in a loss to the Rays.

Estrada did strike out six, but he needed a whopping 113 pitches to get through his five frames. While not a great outing, Estrada did manage to extend his streak of not giving up more than three earned runs to 13 starts. He'll face the Yankees and Indians next week.
Aug 9 - 10:40 PM

Marco Estrada limited the Astros to one run in seven innings and struck out seven Wednesday in earning a win.

Estrada, who had been troubled by a back issue before going on the DL last month, was able to finish seven innings for the first time in eight starts. He's gone three straight starts without allowing a homer. To think this is the same guy who gave up 29 in just 150 2/3 innings in the National League in 2014.
Aug 3 - 11:47 PM

Marco Estrada earned his sixth victory of the season on Friday, allowing four runs (three earned) on five hits over six innings against the Orioles.

Estrada racked up six strikeouts on the night while issuing a pair of walks. The O's got to him early, with a two-run double from Mark Trumbo in the first inning, but the right-hander was able to settle in nicely afterwards. He has been tremendous for the Jays this season, registering a 3.02 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 108/42 K/BB ratio across 116 1/3 innings. He'll take on the Astros his next time out in Houston on Wednesday.
Jul 29 - 10:20 PM

Making his return from the disabled list, Marco Estrada took the loss Friday after giving up two runs in six innings against the Mariners.

Estrada struck out three and walked one. The difference in the ballgame was an RBI double by Seth Smith in the fifth inning. While he took the loss, it was a solid effort in his return from a back injury. This was the first time since May 30 that he didn’t give up a home run. He’ll bring a 2.94 ERA into a start against the Padres next week.
Jul 22 - 10:36 PM

Blue Jays activated RHP Marco Estrada from the 15-day disabled list.

Estrada will rejoin the Jays' rotation on Friday against the Mariners after missing a couple weeks of action with a back issue. The right-hander boasts a 2.93 ERA, 0.99 WHIP and 99/39 K/BB ratio over 104 1/3 innings this season.
Jul 22 - 3:24 PM

Marco Estrada (back) expects to return to the Blue Jays' rotation Friday against the Mariners.

Estrada threw a successful bullpen session Tuesday and declared himself ready. If he gets the official go-ahead, the veteran right-hander will wind up having missed just one turn in the Blue Jays' rotation because of the All-Star break. He had a sparkling 2.93 ERA, 0.99 WHIP, and 99/39 K/BB ratio over his first 104 1/3 innings this season.
