National League – FAAB – 8/11/13

Starting Pitching:

Marco Estrada, Brewers – Estrada, who had been sidelined with hamstring/back woes since June 5 and had several bullpen sessions scrapped, made a quicker than expected return from his rehab assignment to start Wednesday. Estrada only went 2.2 innings in his last rehab start but was activated to start in place of the injured Tom Gorzelanny. He gave up just one hit over five shutout innings, throwing 76 pitches, Wednesday. Estrada struck out six and did not factor in the decision against the Giants. He should remain in the rotation going forward. Estrada emerged as one of Milwaukee’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. This year has been a different story, as he posted a 5.32 ERA in 12 starts before being sidelined by the injury. Mixed: $1; NL: $4.
