Profile: Science says that Marco Estrada shouldn't exist. It's 2017 - fastball velocity is at an all time high, and all hitters try to do is "elevate and celebrate". Yet here we are, staring at Estrada's 88 mph fastball, and 8.5 K/9. Sometimes, the outliers are more exciting than the trends. The past two seasons have been great for Estrada. When he's not battling through a back injury, he pitches deep into games, gets average to above average strike outs, and controls his walks. When Estrada is on, he is a threat to pitch 8 innings, with 8 strike outs, and less than 2 walks. When he loses his pin point control... the fans in the outfield better bring their gloves. The growing trend for hitters to try and hit the ball in the air plays both into Estrada's strategy, but also exposes him to his biggest flaw - giving up home runs. Expect the 2017 iteration of Marco Estrada to once again provide innings, wins, average strikeouts, and low walk rates. If the aging curve bites Estrada hard, he doesn't have a lot of room for error, and things could get ugly in a hurry. (Mike Sonne)

The Quick Opinion: Marco Estrada has been one of the best pitchers on the Toronto Blue Jays. If he can stay healthy in 2017, expect more of the same - a good ERA, and lots of innings in the rotation.
