Blue Jays' Marco Estrada: Slated for Thursday start

Estrada (back) is scheduled to make his next start Thursday in New York against the Yankees, reports.

Estrada had initially been in line to pitch on five days' rest Tuesday against the Royals, despite having experienced back problems during his previous outing versus the Orioles on April 11. He lasted four innings and gave up four runs on six hits and three walks in that contest, but after checking out fine in a post-start throwing session, Estrada won't miss any turns through the rotation. The Blue Jays did push the right-hander back an additional two days in the pitching schedule as a result of postponed games Saturday and Sunday in Cleveland due to inclement weather.
