Blue Jays, P Marco Estrada agree to $2.505 million contract
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(1/16/15) The Blue Jays and pitcher Marco Estrada have avoided arbitration with a one-year, $2.505 million contract, according to the team's official website on Friday.
Estrada was acquired by Toronto via trade in the offseason. He worked both as a starter and a reliever for the Brewers last season, making 18 starts and 21 relief appearances. He went 7-6 with a 4.38 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 127:44 K:BB ratio in 150 2/3 innings, pitching much better in relief than as a starter in 2014.
Blue Jays acquire Marco Estrada from Brewers

|(11/1/14) The Blue Jays and Brewers agreed to a trade Saturday, with the Blue Jays acquiring pitcher Marco Estrada in exchange for first baseman Adam Lind.
Estrada worked both as a starter and a reliever for the Brewers this season, making 18 starts and 21 relief appearances. He went 7-6 with a 4.38 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 127:44 K:BB ratio in 150 2/3 innings, pitching much better in relief than as a starter. He's due to reach free agency after the 2015 season.
Marco Estrada moving to the bullpen

|(7/10/14) Brewers starter Marco Estrada will be moved to the bullpen.
The Brewers called up pitcher Jimmy Nelson from Triple-A Thursday, and announced he would start in Estrada's place Saturday against the Cardinals. Over 107 innings, Estrada has a 4.96 ERA. He's given up 27 home runs through 18 starts.
Brewers possibly considering rotation change
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
|(7/10/14) Though no decision has been made, the Brewers are considering a switch for Saturday's start, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
Marco Estrada is currently listed as the starting pitcher for the game against the Cardinals, but the report indicates a call up for prospect Jimmy Nelson is looming. Nelson has been tearing things up at Triple-A Nasville, while Estrada is the major-league leader in home runs allowed, with 27.
Manager Ron Roenicke was even asked if it was safe to assume Estrada will make his schedule start, and he replied, "I won't comment on that."
Roenicke was non-committal when asked whether the team is considering Nelson, but indicated that they would not necessarily have to wait until after the All-Star break to make any sort of change.
"Sometimes you wait until the all-star break to do things," he said. "But when the timing calls for something to be done, you try to do it. If it makes sense right then, why wait on something? That's what we talk about all the time. We talk about what goes on in here, how guys are feeling right now, and do we need a change?"
Marco Estrada drops second straight decision
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(7/8/14) Brewers starting pitcher Marco Estrada took the loss Monday night against the Phillies at home, dropping to 7-6 on the year. The right-hander allowed three runs on six hits and two walks while striking out five over five innings of a 3-2 defeat.|
Estrada has allowed three homers over his last two starts. He owns a 4.96 ERA and a 1.27 WHIP over 18 starts (107 innings). He will look to avoid a third straight loss on Saturday at home against St. Louis.

Grading the Offseason: NL Central
The Cardinals made a big move to improve their outfield, the Cubs hired the best manager in the business, the Pirates did what they had to, and the Brewers and Reds treaded water.
|2014 summary: Hyped as a sleeper coming into the year because of his strikeout rate and WHIP, Marco Estrada's one glaring flaw, his home run rate, ultimately ruined him in 2014. Over a span of 13 starts in May, June and July, he allowed 22 home runs, bumping him to the bullpen for the final 2 1/2 months. He was much better there, allowing just two home runs for a 2.89 ERA in 43 2/3 innings.|
Playing time status: Traded straight-up for Adam Lind early this offseason, Estrada has new life with the Blue Jays. He'll have to compete for a rotation spot, but provided he wins the job, everything that made him a Fantasy darling heading into 2014 still applies. It's just less assured now.
2015 outlook: So is Estrada a sleeper? With his role in question, probably not in mixed leagues, and even for late drafters, he'd need an exceptionally strong spring to enter the discussion. But you shouldn't forget about him, especially with the change of scenery.
