Marco Estrada moving to the bullpen
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

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

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

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.

Home runs continue to plague Marco Estrada
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Brewers starting pitcher Marco Estrada allowed a pair of solo home runs in six innings Tuesday at Toronto, and it was just enough to send him to a loss in a 4-1 win for Toronto. The right-hander allowed six hits and one walk, while striking out two in six innings.

Estrada (7-6) gave up a solo home run to Jose Bautista with two outs in the first inning. The game remained 1-0 until Colby Rasmus led off the fifth inning with a home run. Estrada has now given up a league-leading 26 home runs.

Tuesday's loss ended a two-game winning streak for Estrada, who will be back on the mound Monday against the Phillies. Estrada is 4-2 with a 4.40 ERA in seven home starts.

Marco Estrada gets a reprieve
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Brewers starting pitcher Marco Estrada probably saved his job with his performance against the Nationals Wednesday. That's not to say he was lights out or anything -- in fact, the four walks were concerning in their own right considering plus control is a key to his success -- but he didn't allow a home run in his 6 1/3 innings, which means he's allowed "only" one in his last two starts. Joy of joys.

I'm being sarcastic, of course, because while Wednesday's start may have bought him another one, it didn't correct his historically bad home run rate or restore his Fantasy value. By now, most Fantasy owners are probably rooting for him to fail so that Jimmy Nelson can get a crack at the big-league rotation.

But to me, that's short-sighted. No doubt, Nelson has fantastic numbers at Triple-A Nashville and probably a bright future in the majors, but in a perfect world, his arrival wouldn't come at Estrada's expense. Remember how you came to own Estrada in the first place? He was a sleeper in his own right, overcoming slow starts to demonstrate top-30 potential down the stretch each of the last two seasons. If the Brewers remove him from the rotation, that's one less potential difference-maker for mixed-leaguers. You'd rather him restore his value and have Nelson wait for some other opportunity, such as an injury, to join the rotation.
