by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Marco Estrada returning to rotation Wednesday


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst

by Jack Moore | CBSSports.com
(9/1/2013) Brewers starter Marco Estrada took a no-decision Saturday against Anaheim.

Marco Estrada a sleeper again


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/27/2013) Coming into the season, the Brewers' Marco Estrada was one of my favorite sleepers at starting pitcher. It wasn't too much of a stretch, really. In his final 18 appearances (17 starts) last year, he had a 3.34 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 9.6 strikeouts per nine innings.

Impeccable command keyed his success. It's not like he throws especially hard, but when located properly, his fastball-changeup combination can be devastating. It's the same formula that fueled Kris Medlen's seemingly impossible run late last year.

Earlier this year, Estrada seemed to come back down to earth, just like Medlen, but since returning from a lengthy DL stint for a strained hamstring Aug. 7, his command has returned. In four starts, he's averaging 1.1 walks per nine innings compared to 2.3 per nine in his previous 12 starts. Fittingly, his ERA in those four starts is 1.88.

Granted, it's an outrageously small sample that could easily be distorted the next time he takes the mound, but knowing we've seen it from him before, it's reason to get excited about Estrada again. He's now 55th among starting pitchers in my rest-of-season rankings.


Marco Estrada yields one hit in seven scoreless innings


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/25/2013) Brewers starting pitcher Marco Estrada allowed just one hit in seven scoreless innings, leading Milwaukee to a 3-1 win at Cincinnati Sunday. Estrada walked two batters and struck out a season-high nine.

Estrada's only hit allowed was Shin-Soo Choo's leadoff single in the first inning. He had five 1-2-3 innings, including the second through fifth innings. Estrada is 2-0 with a 1.88 ERA and 0.71 WHIP in four starts since coming off the disabled list.

Estrada will head back to the hill Saturday against the Angels. He is 1-2 with a 5.29 ERA in three interleague starts this year.


Marco Estrada settles for no-decision


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(8/19/2013) Brewers starting pitcher Marco Estrada made his second start since coming off the disabled list Monday against St. Louis. He didn't take a loss, but he wasn't at his best, either.

Estrada settled for the no-decision as he allowed four earned runs on eight hits and a walk over six innings. He struck out four and surrendered two home runs. He threw 95 pitches and his ERA is now at 4.80 on the season.

With his record staying at 5-4, Estrada will next take the mound for the Brewers on Sunday at Cincinnati.

Marco Estrada stays sharp after DL stint


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/13/2013) Brewers pitcher Marco Estrada (5-4) tossed a quality start as he earned his fifth win of the season Tuesday night against the Rangers. The right-hander, who made his second start back from the disabled list, allowed one run on four hits and no walks while striking out two over six innings of a 5-1 victory.

Estrada has allowed only one earned run over his last 11 innings pitched since rejoining the rotation. He is scheduled to make his next start Sunday at home against Cincinnati. He is 2-2 with a 7.71 ERA in six starts at Miller Park.

Marco Estrada pitches five one-hit innings


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/8/2013) Making his first start in more than two months, Brewers pitcher Marco Estrada allowed just one hit in five scoreless innings while striking out six and walking none in his team's 6-1 win over the Giants Wednesday. He did not factor into the win.

Estrada had been sidelined since June 3 while recovering from a hamstring injury and was on a tight pitch count, throwing just 76 pitches in his first start back. He brings a 4-4 record, 4.96 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 68:18 K:BB ratio into Tuesday's scheduled start against the Rangers.


No need to start Marco Estrada anytime soon


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(8/7/2013) Because he could be on a pitch count in his first start off the disabled list, Marco Estrada can be avoided by Fantasy owners in daily leagues, as he faces the Giants on Wednesday night. Even as Estrada ramps his workload back up, owners should be in no hurry to claim or activate him.

Overall, it's been an ugly season for Estrada. Aside from a two-month DL stint, he has suffered through a 5.32 ERA and a barrage of home runs (1.8 HR/9). He appeared to take a turn for the better over the last five starts he made before his hammy-induced hiatus, allowing only three home runs over 30 2/3 innings.

That helped Estrada to bring his ERA down from 6.05, but it's likely relevant that three of those five starts were on the road at pitcher-friendly parks. Estrada could continue to be risky in his appearances at Miller Park and other hitter-friendly venues. If the Brewers stay in rotation, Estrada's next starts would be at Texas, at home versus the Reds and at Cincinnati. It could be until late August before Estrada plays in a pitcher's park again, so there's little reason to pursue him before then.


Brewers activate Marco Estrada


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/7/2013) The Brewers have activated pitcher Marco Estrada from the disabled list Wednesday.

The move was announced Tuesday, but wasn't official until the team made the transaction early Wednesday. In order to make room for Estrada, the team sent Scooter Gennett to the minors. Estrada has a 5.32 ERA in 69 1/3 innings.
