This is a tough one because his value in the early going would have been almost non-existent but maybe things are starting to turn around.
After starting the season with a 2-2 record, a 6.00 ERA and an even tougher month of May going 0-4 with a 5.40 ERA, June could be a bounce-back month for Estrada. Even though it’s only been two starts, Estrada was dominant with a 2.25 ERA, an SO9 of 11.3 and seeing less walks as well.
While Happ remains the best trade chip at the deadline, if Estrada can remain consistent and keep a respectable ERA, maybe a team takes a flyer on him. It would be tough to see him back next season unless the Blue Jays are hard pressed to find pitching options.
TSN’s Steve Phillips believes that Estrada could fetch a second-level prospect if he can show that the first two months of the season are behind him.
Which player would fetch the most on the trade market for the Blue Jays? Who is a player they should consider moving, is there any player who is untouchable? Let us know in the comments below.
