Marco Estrada signed a 1-year agreement with Athletics
A starting pitcher who has no agent, Marco Estrada, signed a 1-year contract with Oakland Athletics according to the team. The worth of this agreement is about $4 million. If you’re interested in predicting his future performance, PinUp will come in handy.
Marco Estrada is the 2nd starting pitcher signed by the team this winter. That’s because Athletics want to fill out the rotation after a surprising wild-card in the past year. The team lost Brett Anderson, Trevor Cahill, and Edwin Jackson. However, it succeeded to resign Mike Fiers. The deal cost over $14 million.
Estrada was a consistent innings-eater in previous seasons. The right-hander struggled in the last 2 seasons. Athletics want to bank on a good defensive outfield and wide expanse to help him return to his excellent performance. In Toronto Blue Jays, Estrada induced weak contact and benefited from good batting averages in play.
Athletics will miss Sean Manaea, a top starter, because of a shoulder surgery and Andrew Triggs who underwent surgery in an attempt to alleviate his thoracic outlet syndrome. The team can also see the promotion of A.J. Puk, Jesus Luzardo, and Jharel Cotton who required his elbow-ligament reconstruction.
