Analysis: Estrada is 3-1 with a 2.67 ERA in eight career postseason appearances, including 8 1/3 dominant innings to win the opener of the ALDS against Texas. The right-hander doesn't have a decision in two lifetime starts versus Cleveland, allowing five runs in 12 innings but also serving up four homers.
|Oct. 5 6:59 PM PT7:59 PM MT8:59 PM CT9:59 PM ET21:59 ET1:59 GMT9:59 6:59 PM MST8:59 PM EST9:29 PM VEN5:59 UAE (+1)8:59 PM CT-Estrada dominated the Rangers to win the ALDS opener Thursday, yielding a run and four hits in 8 1/3 innings with no walks and six strikeouts.
Analysis: It was a performance similar to Game 3 of last year's ALDS, when he held Texas to one run over 6 1/3 innings in a critical 5-1 Blue Jays' victory in Arlington. The right-hander is 3-1 with a 1.95 ERA in four playoff starts. He's allowed three runs and 13 hits in his last 27 1/3 innings going back to the regular season.
|Oct. 1 11:20 PM PT12:20 AM MT1:20 AM CT2:20 AM ET2:20 ET6:20 GMT14:20 11:20 PM MST1:20 AM EST1:50 AM VEN10:20 UAE1:20 AM CT-Estrada held the Red Sox to a run on four hits through five innings Friday, though he was denied a 10th win when Boston rallied for four runs against the Toronto bullpen in the seventh.
Analysis: If the Blue Jays are able to reach the ALDS, Estrada will surely be in the rotation after permitting just two runs in 19 innings over his last three starts. He concludes the regular season with a 9-9 record, a solid 3.53 ERA and a career-high 161 strikeouts in 28 starts.

Analysis: Estrada (9-9) had allowed only two walks before Robinson Cano led off the seventh with a line drive up the middle on a 2-1 pitch. Estrada was partly to blame for Toronto's September swoon. In his previous six starts, he was 1-4 with a 7.53 ERA.

Analysis: Estrada exited Tuesday's 4-2 loss to Arizona after six innings and 88 pitches due to back tightness. The right-hander has held opposing hitters to a major league-low .164 average in 14 starts this season.
|June 21 7:27 PM PT8:27 PM MT9:27 PM CT10:27 PM ET22:27 ET2:27 GMT10:27 7:27 PM MST9:27 PM EST9:57 PM VEN6:27 UAE (+1)9:27 PM CT-Estrada held the Diamondbacks to three runs and two hits with eight strikeouts in six innings Tuesday but suffered a 4-2 loss.

Analysis: The Toronto righty yielded a run on three hits and struck out eight before departing with a one-run lead the bullpen blew. Estrada is just 1-2 in six starts but sports a 2.39 ERA, with a lack of run support a big reason to that low win total.
