Blue Jays SP Marco Estrada credits his changeup for success


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(7/10/2015) Blue Jays starting pitcher Marco Estrada has one of the better changeups in the American League, but it wasn't always that way, per the Toronto Sun.

Estrada was drafted out of college because of an dominant fastball and impressive curveball. It wasn't until he got into the minor leagues that he saw a need to develop the changeup into his repertoire.

“I went up to one of the guys (Clint Everts when they were teammates in 2006, with the Savannah Sand Gnats of the South Atlantic League) and he had a really good changeup and asked him how he threw it,” Estrada said. “He showed me and I honestly picked it up really quick. He showed me the grip and a few days later I started a game, started using it and after told him: ‘This is going to change everything.’ ”

Estrada (6-4) has a 3.59 ERA with 67 strikeouts and 28 walks in 80 1/3 innings this season.


Jays SP Marco Estrada bounces back for win


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(7/5/2015) One start after lasting just 2 1/3 innings, Blue Jays pitcher Marco Estrada did just enough to earn a win Sunday, keeping the Tigers at bay for five innings in Toronto's win. 

Estrada gave up two runs on five hits, and again racked up a high pitch count, reaching 101 in just five frames, but got the key outs he needed to improve to 6-4. More importantly, he did not allow a home run, a problem that has plagued him throughout his career. 

Estrada has won five of his last six decisions, and holds a 3.59 ERA. 


Blue Jays' Marco Estrada sees four-game win streak snapped

Blue Jays SP Marco Estrada perfect for 7 1/3 innings Wednesday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/24/2015) Blue Jays starting pitcher Marco Estrada was chasing down history Wednesday, looking to become the 24th pitcher in MLB history to throw a perfect game. Unfortunately, he fell a little shy of history and almost took the loss in what was a stellar outing for the right-handed hurler.

Estrada and Rays pitcher Nathan Karns were locked in quite the pitcher's duel Wednesday. Both players hadn't allowed a hit until Kevin Pillar singled with one out in the top of the sixth inning. The Blue Jays loaded the bases, but could not get Estrada any run support.

The game was scoreless going into the bottom of the eighth, as Estrada still had a perfect game intact. Then, things got interesting.

Blue Jays third baseman Josh Donaldson was able to keep Estrada's perfect game going with a diving, highlight reel catch into the stands in foul territory. Unfortunately, one batter later, Estrada's perfect game ended, but it wasn't because of a lack of effort.

Logan Forsythe hit a slow chopper to Donaldson at third base. Donaldson made a beautiful barehanded grab and fired the baseball to first base. However, Forsythe just beat the throw and was ruled safe. Toronto challenged the play, but the ruling on the field was upheld.

Estrada retired the next two batters to keep the shutout going. He returned for the ninth inning and was lifted after Kevin Kiermaier's two-out double. Roberto Osuna entered the game to face Joey Butler, who hit the ball back up the middle. Luckily, shortstop Jose Reyes was able to range to his left and make the play to throw out Butler.

Estrada allowed two hits and no walks in 8 2/3 innings, while striking out 10 in the no-decision. Wednesday's outing comes after he allowed one hit in seven innings his previous start against the Orioles. He is the first major-league pitcher to take a no-hitter into the eighth inning in consecutive starts since Dave Stieb in 1988, according to Elias.


Marco Estrada wins fourth straight for Blue Jays


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(6/19/2015) Blue Jays pitcher Marco Estrada won his fourth game in as many starts, Friday over Baltimore. 

Estrada allowed one run on one hit over seven innings. He walked four and struck out six.

Estrada carried a no-hitter into the eighth inning but left after allowing a leadoff single. 

"He got on some kind of roll," said manager John Gibbons. "The first couple of innings were a battle with the strike zone, but then he got on a nice little roll and he had everything working for him. He started spotting his fastball, great changeup and he started dropping that hook in there pretty consistently and he even threw some good cutters today. It was an impressive outing, you tip your hat to the guy, but he has pitched very well for us this year."

His next start is Wednesday at Tampa Bay.

Blue Jays P Marco Estrada's recent woes with walks continue


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/23/2015) Blue Jays pitcher Marco Estrada allowed four earned runs during Friday night's 4-3 loss to the Mariners. 

Estrada went seven innings and gave up six hits and three walks while walking five. Estrada has had some trouble with walking hitters of late. In his first seven starts he walked a total of five batters. 

"I think have enough pitches to get through the lineup a few times," Estrada said to the Toronto Sun. "I thought I threw a lot of good pitches, made a lot of good quality pitches, it just didn't go my way."

However, in his past three he's surrendered nine walks. 

Estrada now holds an ERA of 3.90 for the season. 

His next start is projected for May 27 against the White Sox.

by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(5/11/2015) Blue Jays starting pitcher Marco Estrada (1-2) gave up three runs on five hits in five innings Monday to suffer the loss against the Orioles.

Blue Jays pitcher Marco Estrada open to different role this season


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/28/2015) Blue Jays pitcher Marco Estrada knows it's unlikely he will end up with a job in the starting rotation, but he's willing to accept any role this year, reports MLB.com.

"If that's what I'm going to do, that's fine," Estrada said. "I told these guys I just want to be out there to help this team win. That's all I care about. If it's starting, awesome. If it's relieving, that's fine. I just want to help, I want to win, I want to get into the playoffs and that's all that matters."

Estrada gave up one run on five hits with three strikeouts in three innings of work Saturday against the Braves.

"I'll be honest, I felt a little weird out there, being out there again," Estrada said. "I just haven't seen a hitter in a couple of weeks almost. Timing was a little off, rushed a few pitches that I left up, a few changeups that I missed up, but other than that, I felt pretty good other than missing two weeks."

He is also feeling healthier after battling an ankle injury at the beginning of spring training.

"The ankle is much better. It's getting there, I can go out there and pitch, it's not a big deal anymore. Just every day it has been feeling much better. There's not much we can do right now. Need another day or two and it will probably be gone."


Blue Jays' Marco Estrada (ankle) pushed back again


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/24/2015) Blue Jays pitcher Marco Estrada had his scheduled start pushed back for a second time Tuesday due to an ankle injury, MLB.com reports.

Estrada was initially scheduled to pitch Sunday but was scratched due to a sore ankle he tweaked earlier in the week. He is now expected to start Saturday's game and could also be used in relief Thursday after the ankle has had more time to heal.

"It's still barking a bit," manager John Gibbons said.

Estrada is in the mix for a rotation spot this spring but will likely begin the season in the bullpen. He's given up eight earned runs on 7 2/3 innings this spring.
