RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

After being little more than a swing pitcher for the Brewers the previous two seasons, Estrada emerged as one of the team's best starters in 2012. In 23 starts - after having never made more than seven in a season - Estrada posted a 3.64 ERA and stellar 143:29 K:BB ratio over 138.1 innings. Estrada was tagged for a lot of home runs early last season, but he gave up just two over the season's final two months. If he can limit the long ball, he could come close to matching last season's production.

2012

Estrada was impressive early in 2011 as a rotation replacement for the injured Zack Greinke. His numbers fell off when used as a reliever and he finished with a 4.08 ERA in 92.2 innings. Estrada has very good strikeout and walk rates, but has always been bitten by the long ball. He will likely work as a long reliever and possible injury replacement in the rotation during 2012.

2010

After a solid season in the Triple-A rotation, Estrada got a brief look in the majors at the end of the season but once again didn't exactly set the world on fire, which isn't that surprising given his mediocre repertoire and lack of scouting pedigree. He profiles more as an organizational soldier than a future cog in the Nationals' bullpen machine, big or small, but it's a testament to his strength of will that he's even made it this far.

2009

Estrada struggled in the big league bullpen, but despite starting 25 games in the high minors (with generally pretty good results) his short frame and two-pitch arsenal probably mean it's relief or nothing if he wants to break camp on the 25-man roster. The Nationals' chaotic pitching situation means a back-of-the-rotation spot is a possibility down the road though, and he'd have marginally more value as a starter than as a middle man.
