Estrada (4-6) allowed three runs on five hits and four walks while striking out six over seven innings to take the loss Saturday against the Royals.

EDGE Analysis

Estrada gave up a pair of solo homers, and although he registered a quality start, the Blue Jays offense was unable to give him enough run support, leading to his sixth defeat of the season. After coming into this game having allowed 23 runs over his last 16.1 innings covering four starts, he showed signs of life in terms of possibly turning things around. However, until he can string together some consistent success, his 4.89 ERA makes him a difficult player to trust in fantasy lineups. He'll make his next start Friday against the Red Sox.

Estrada allowed six runs on seven hits and four walks while striking out four batters through 3.2 innings during Monday's win over Texas. He didn't factor into the decision.

EDGE Analysis

Estrada has now allowed 23 runs through just 16.1 innings over his past four starts, and his ERA has ballooned from 3.15 all the way up to 4.98. Typically when these type of struggles appear almost out of nowhere, the pitcher is either dealing with an injury or tipping his pitches. With that in mind, and considering his current form, it isn't out of the question to bench Estrada until he proves he's capable of limiting opponents. He lines up for a road start against the Royals next.

Estrada (4-5) surrendered six runs on 12 hits while striking out two over 3.1 innings in Tuesday's 8-1 loss to the Rays.

EDGE Analysis

After reeling off eight quality starts in his first 11 outings this season Estrada has hit a severe rough patch, failing to last six innings in three straight losses with a 12.08 ERA and 2.45 WHIP. His 14:3 K:BB in 12.2 innings during that stretch remains strong, but coughing up 28 hits and four homers has ruined his ratios. Things won't get any easier for the 33-year-old in his next start Monday on the road against the Rangers.

Estrada will become a trade piece should the Jays lose ground in the playoff race before the July 31 trade deadline, Mike Johnston of Sportsnet.ca reports.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran has been a rare constant in the Jays' injury-plagued rotation this season, logging a team-high 78 innings while posting a 90:20 K:BB through 13 starts. However, free agency is looming, and Estrada -- who turns 34 next month -- should have plenty of suitors driving the price up on his new contract. With a market demanding front-line starters, Estrada is arguably the most valuable chip Toronto has to play. In terms of fantasy impact, moving away from hitter-friendly Rogers Centre certainly can't hurt.

Estrada (4-4) pitched 5.2 innings, allowing four runs on seven hits and a walk while striking out eight Athletics in Tuesday's loss.

EDGE Analysis

Following a second consecutive loss, Estrada's ERA ballooned over four for just the second time this season. His strikeouts have been a saving grace (10.4 K/9), but the long ball has been Estrada's Achilles heel. Although the 33-year-old avoided serving up a home run Tuesday for the first time in seven starts, he still owns a weak 1.3 HR/9. Estrada's 71.4 percent strand rate and .330 BABIP haven't helped the cause, either. He'll take the mound for his next start Tuesday against Tampa Bay.

Estrada took the loss Thursday during the Blue Jays' 9-2 loss to the Yankees, allowing seven earned runs over 3.2 innings.

EDGE Analysis

Gary Sanchez tagged Estrada for two solo shots in the right-hander's worst outing of the season. The 33-year-old had strung together two solid starts in a row, but this performance was definitely a setback in his progression to return to the All-Star form he exhibited a year ago.

Estrada went 4-1 with a 3.82 ERA and 42:8 K:BB over six starts in May.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran enjoyed a fine month, logging six-plus innings in each of his starts while posting an uncharacteristically high 10.5 K/9. Despite an average fastball that sits just below 90 mph -- which is actually up more than a tick from 2016 -- Estrada owns some of the league's best marks this season for ERA (3.15), WHIP (1.11) and K/BB (4.6). Now in his 10th MLB campaign, the 33-year-old is sporting a career-best 3.42 FIP through his first 11 games. Adding to the impressive nature of Estrada's numbers is the fact that he's been victimized by a fairly unlucky .302 BABIP, his highest such mark since 2012 as a Brewer. He'll now take on what's been historically his most daunting month. Estrada's 5.25 career ERA in June is his worst ERA for any month in his nine-plus MLB seasons.

Estrada (4-2) allowed one run on four hits and one walk while striking out eight across six innings to earn the win Saturday against the Rangers.

EDGE Analysis

Estrada gave up a solo homer to lead off the game before completely shutting down the Rangers bats the rest of the way. He's held opponents to two or fewer earned runs in seven of his last nine starts, and his 3.15 ERA makes him a strong fantasy option. He'll make his next start Friday against the Yankees.

Estrada (3-2) pitched 7.2 innings, allowing one run on five hits and one walks while matching a career high with 12 strikeouts in Sunday's win over the Orioles.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran has feasted on the O's dangerous lineup this season, managing a tidy 1.31 ERA in three meetings with the division rival. Estrada's 10.1 K/9 through 10 games is the 33-year-old's best ratio since becoming a MLB mainstay in 2011 with Milwaukee. He's had a few rocky outings this year, but the right-hander's seven quality starts are tied for second-most in MLB. A date with Texas on Saturday is next on tap for Estrada.

Estrada allowed five runs on eight hits with no walks across six innings in a no-decision Tuesday against the Braves. He struck out five.

EDGE Analysis

Estrada allowed a pair of runs in a first-inning rally and another in the second before Freddie Freeman crushed a two-run home run in the fifth. He was quite good at times, despite what the box score would suggest, throwing 75 percent of his pitches for strikes and recording one-two-three innings in each of the three frames he wasn't scored upon. Despite this relatively rough outing, Estrada still owns a solid 3.60 ERA and will look to get back on track Sunday against the Orioles.
