      Athletics' Marco Estrada: Lands on IL

      Marco Estrada was placed on the 10-day injured list Wednesday with a lumbar strain.This comes a day after Estrada was lit up for seven runs in just 3.1 innings, his second consecutive rough outing. The severity of the issue is not yet known, but it's worth noting that the veteran right-hander has a history of back issues. The A's have yet to announce his replacement in the rotation. Chris Bassitt was recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas to take his place on the roster.

      Athletics' Marco Estrada: Struggles for second straight start

      Marco Estrada (0-2) allowed seven runs on five hits with one strikeout and three walks across 3.1 innings in a loss against the Astros on Tuesday.The 35-year-old has allowed at least six runs in his last two outings. He pitched well at the beginning of the year but has yet to earn a win and his ERA has ballooned to 6.85 over the last 10 days. In addition to that ERA, Estrada is 0-2 with a 1.31 WHIP and 11 strikeouts in 23.2 innings over five starts this season. His next outing is scheduled for Monday at home against the Rangers.

      Athletics' Marco Estrada: Set for Tuesday start

      Marco Estrada, who's scheduled start against the Rangers on Saturday was rained out, will start Tuesday's game at home versus the Astros, Dave Sessions of MLB.com reports.The rainout gave manager Bob Melvin a chance to adjust his rotation and line up pitching assignments in more ideal fashion. Saturday's washed-out start kept Estrada, a flyball pitcher, out of dangerous Globe Life Park, allowing him to instead take his next turn against the potent Astros lineup in the roomier confines of the Coliseum. The veteran right-hander was hit hard by the Orioles in his last start, allowing six earned runs on nine hits and a walk over four innings. However, he'll have the advantage of taking the hill Tuesday with a full seven days of rest.

      Athletics' Marco Estrada: Saturday's game postponed

      Marco Estrada won't make his scheduled start Saturday at Texas since the game was postponed due to rain, T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports.Estrada will have his start skipped, according to Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle, as Brett Anderson will still start as scheduled in Sunday's series finale. The Oakland Athletics have off days Monday and Thursday with a two-game set against the Astros in between, so it remains to be seen when Estrada next takes the mound.

      Athletics' Marco Estrada: Gives up two runs

      Marco Estrada gave up two earned runs on two hits and two walks while striking out three through 5.1 innings in a no-decision on Wednesday.Estrada only surrendered two hits and held Boston scoreless through four innings, but a Blake Swihart home run in the fifth inning and a double off Ryan Buchter resulted in two earned runs. Even though his ERA through two starts is 2.76, the right-hander's 5.56 FIP suggests a probability of regression. Estrada's next start is scheduled for Monday against the Orioles in Camden Yards.

      Athletics' Marco Estrada: Strong outing wasted against Angels

      Marco Estrada didn't factor into the decision in Friday's 6-2 loss to the Angels despite tossing six shutout innings, allowing two hits and two walks while striking out three.The right-hander ran into a bit of trouble in the fourth inning, loading the bases with two outs, but a Zack Cozart groundout ended the rally. Estrada's impressive start was squandered by the Oakland bullpen, but it was still a much better showing than the one he put together in Tokyo last week against the Mariners. The 35-year-old will make his next start April 3 at home against the Red Sox.

      Athletics' Marco Estrada: Susceptible to long ball in debut

      Marco Estrada allowed three earned runs on five hits and a hit batsman over five innings in a 5-4 extra-innings loss to the Mariners in Tokyo, Japan on Thursday. He also recorded a strikeout and did not factor into the decision.The veteran right-hander paid dearly for a pair of mistake pitches to sluggers Ryon Healy and Mitch Haniger, who tagged him for round trippers in the second and third innings, respectively. All but one of the five hits Estrada allowed were actually of the extra-base variety, as Domingo Santana and Haniger also tagged him for doubles. Estrada has long proven vulnerable to hard contact, as he's yielded at least 23 home runs in five consecutive seasons. Therefore, Thursday's struggles keeping the ball in the park could be a harbinger of more of the same. Estrada will look to bounce back in his next start stateside, which could come at some point in the Oakland Athletics' home-opening four-game series versus the Angels beginning next Thursday.

      Athletics' Marco Estrada: Will get start in Japan

      Marco Estrada has been named the starting pitcher for the Oakland Athletics' second game of the season March 21 against the Mariners in Tokyo, Jane Lee of MLB.com reports.Estrada will likely get one final spring tune-up outing during the upcoming week before making his first regular-season start as a member of the Athletics. With no fewer than 23 home runs surrendered in each of the past five seasons, Estrada has been vulnerable to the long ball throughout his career, but the move to Oakland and its spacious home park should be a welcome development for the 35-year-old. After seeing his strikeout rate tumble to a lowly 6.5 K/9 in 2018, however, Estrada probably isn't deserving of much attention outside of AL-only or deeper mixed leagues.

      Athletics' Marco Estrada: Mixed bag in spring debut

      Marco Estrada allowed three earned runs on six hits over three innings in a 4-1 Cactus League loss to the Angels on Sunday. He struck out three.But for a couple of mistake pitches to two prolific sluggers in Mike Trout and Albert Pujols, Estrada actually acquitted himself better than his final line implies in his A's debut. The veteran right-hander allowed a one-out, two-run blast to Trout in the third inning before seeing Pujols take him deep for a solo shot a batter later. Estrada didn't give up any other run-scoring hits, although the fact he was also touched up for three doubles underscores the fact Angels hitters were locked into some of his offerings. The 35-year-old is set to work as the No. 2 starter behind Mike Fiers, and with the Oakland Athletics opening the regular season March 20 in a two-game series against the Mariners in Japan, Estrada will bump up his pitch count in his next spring appearance in anticipation of starting the second game of that set.
