Athletics' Marco Estrada: Could be out until rosters expand
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Estrada (back), who still isn't cleared to throw regular bullpen sessions, could be in the minor leagues until rosters expand in September, Martin Gallegos of reports.

The veteran right-hander appeared to be trending in the right direction in late June, when it was reported he'd completed a 25-pitch bullpen session without setbacks. At that point, it was believed that Estrada could embark on a recovery timeline that would make him available shortly after the All-Star break, but Gallegos essentially reports that's no longer the case. Estrada would still need to throw multiple bullpen sessions within relatively close proximity and then eventually embark on a multi-appearance rehab assignment. Given the timing, it appears increasingly likely the veteran right-hander may not be summoned back to the majors until the final month of the season.

Athletics' Marco Estrada: Shifts to 60-day injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Estrada (back) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Tuesday.

The move has no effect on Estrada's timeline, as he's already been out for more than 60 days. He's expected to return to the Athletics' rotation at some point soon after the All-Star break. The transaction clears a spot for Oakland to activate Chris Herrmann (knee) from the injured list.

Athletics' Marco Estrada: Could rejoin rotation after break
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Estrada (back) completed a 25-pitch bullpen session Saturday and relayed that he felt "OK" afterward, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

While Estrada wasn't overly positive about his first mound work since undergoing a procedure in April to alleviate back pain, the Athletics were likely satisfied with the fact that the 35-year-old took a step forward in the rehab process. According to Slusser, Estrada's prior experience with rehabbing back injuries (and perhaps his status as a pending free agent) could prompt the Athletics to take an aggressive approach with his recovery, even though he's been sidelined for more than two months. Prior to getting shut down, Estrada managed only a 6.85 ERA and 1.31 WHIP in five outings, but he should be assured a rotation spot if he's able to return shortly after the All-Star break. An already-weak Oakland starting staff suffered a major blow Friday, when ace Frankie Montas was handed an 80-game suspension.

Athletics' Marco Estrada: Nearing bullpen session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Estrada (back) threw 15 pitches from flat ground Thursday and could toss a bullpen session as soon as Saturday, Martin Gallegos of reports.

Estrada was restricted to throwing fastballs from flat ground Thursday, but he could take another step forward over the weekend, assuming he feels good following his latest throwing session. The right-hander still has a ways to go before embarking on a rehab stint, however, per Gallegos.

Athletics' Marco Estrada: Throws off flat ground
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Estrada (back) completed a throwing session on flat ground Tuesday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Estrada continued with his throwing program as he makes his return from a back strain and the ablation procedure he underwent in April. The 35-year-old will need to advance to throwing off a mound before there's any real timeline for his return to the majors.

Athletics' Marco Estrada: Makes more progress
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Estrada (back) is continuing his throwing program and has progressed to throwing from 90 feet, Dawn Klemish of reports.

The rehabbing right-hander has been making steady progress since initiating his throwing program June 3, as he was tossing at a distance of 75 feet in his previous throwing session last Friday. Estrada still appears to have a multi-week recovery ahead of him, however, with a multi-appearance rehab assignment likely the eventual final step before activation.

Athletics' Marco Estrada: Tossing from 75 feet
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Estrada (back) has progressed to throwing from 75 feet, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Estrada began playing catch Monday, and he's since been able to stretch out to 75 feet. He'll likely have to throw off flat ground for at least a few more days before moving to a mound. The right-hander has been on the 10-day injured list since April 17 due to a lumbar strain, so Oakland likely won't have any desire to rush him back.

June 2, 2019 01:00 AM
Athletics' Marco Estrada: Next step in recovery identified
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Estrada (back) will begin playing catch Monday, Martin Gallegos of reports.

The planned throwing session will mark the first time Estrada has picked up a baseball since hitting the injured list April 17 due to a lumbar strain. Due to the nature of his injury and the amount of time he's already been sidelined, Estrada will likely be brought along slowly. He's eventually expected to require a multi-appearance minor-league rehab assignment before activation.

May 27, 2019 12:32 PM
Athletics' Marco Estrada: Could play catch soon
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Estrada (back) said Sunday that he hopes to be cleared to play catch at some point during the upcoming week, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Estrada hasn't been able to resume baseball activities since being shut down in mid-April with a strained lower back. Prior to getting hurt, Estrada had posted a 6.85 ERA and 1.31 WHIP in five starts. With Sean Manaea (shoulder) and Jesus Luzardo (shoulder) looming as potential starting options for the Athletics once they complete their respective rehabs, Estrada may not be guaranteed a rotation spot when he ultimately heals up.

Athletics' Marco Estrada: Not throwing yet
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Estrada (back) has not yet begun a throwing program after undergoing an ablation procedure April 23, Daniel Kramer of reports.

The right-hander's recovery is yet to kick into gear, but manager Bob Melvin reiterated Monday that the team expected it would take multiple weeks for Estrada's procedure to take full effect. Once cleared to return to physical activity, Estrada will start with strength and conditioning exercises, graduate to a throwing program, and eventually embark on a minor-league rehab assignment.

Athletics' Marco Estrada: Feeling better
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Estrada said he's feeling better after undergoing an ablation procedure on his back a few weeks ago, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Estrada failed to offer an update on his recovery progress, leaving him without a timetable for his return. The veteran right-hander did say that he doesn't believe he'll need a lengthy rehab assignment once he's cleared to pitch again, though he's not at that point just yet.

Athletics' Marco Estrada: Recovery going slowly
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Estrada (back) is still rehabbing at the team's spring facility in Arizona but has yet to start playing catch, Alexis Brudnicki of reports.

Manager Bob Melvin reported Sunday that Estrada remains "a bit sore" but is responding to treatment, to an extent. However, with Estrada just having undergone a minor ablation procedure Tuesday, it isn't necessarily surprising that he's yet to pick up a baseball. The veteran is expected to miss several weeks at minimum, so his progress is likely to be deliberate in the early stages of his recovery.

Athletics' Marco Estrada: Undergoes minor procedure
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Estrada underwent an ablation procedure on his back Tuesday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Estrada was placed on the 10-day injured list last week with a lumbar strain and now will be sidelined a bit longer after undergoing the ablation procedure. The 35-year-old has no set timeline for his return but will spend more than the minimum 10 days on the IL.

Athletics' Marco Estrada: Lands on IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

April 15, 2019 01:44 AM
Athletics' Marco Estrada: Set for Tuesday start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Estrada won't make his scheduled start Saturday at Texas since the game was postponed due to rain, T.R. Sullivan of 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 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 six runs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Estrada (0-1) gave up six runs on nine hits with one walk while striking out three in a loss to the Orioles on Monday.

Estrada was hit hard, allowing two home runs and six earned runs in four innings. Home runs continue to plague the right-hander -- he has given up five in only three starts. After this outing, his ERA is 4.87 and his K:BB is 10:5. Estrada will get his next start Saturday against the Rangers at Globe Life Park in Arlington.

April 4, 2019 05:56 AM
Athletics' Marco Estrada: Gives up two runs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.
