Toronto Blue Jays
JA Happ looked pretty good for the second start in a row and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Chicago White Sox 7-3 on Sunday for their only win this weekend.
Marco Estrada is slated to start the first game of a new week, on the road in Texas.
Estrada is going through a rough patch.
He almost always completes an inning and then turns things over to the bullpen but he has had to be yanked from each of his last three starts – in the fourth inning twice and the sixth the other time
In total, Estrada has conceded 28 hits and 17 earned runs over his last 12.2 innings pitched, which is all he’s completed over his last three starts.
The blip has his ERA in the mid-4s, up from 3.15 at the start of the month.
Texas won the first two games of their weekend series with Seattle and had its ace on the mound Sunday but Yu Darvish couldn’t complete the sweep and the Mariners escaped with a 7-3 win.
Austin Bibens-Dirkx will make his first start – and appearance – since he beat Max Scherzer as a better than a 5/2 ‘dog last weekend.
So who is this character? Bibens-Dirkx is a 32-year-old rookie who has spent the past 12 years roaming around low-level pro ball, waiting and working for his chance.
He got that this year when he made his first appearance of the season out of the bullpen on May 17th.
He’s come out of the ‘pen another four times and made two starts since and has given up a total of nine runs in nearly 25 innings. His WHIP is 1.01.

Free Toronto Blue Jays vs. Texas Rangers MLB Prediction: Estrada outlasts Bibens-Dirkx but it gets close, late.
I have no read here but have a feeling the Rangers win. They’re playing better ball but Toronto has the pitching advantage. Keep an eye on both guys, though. It’s important to see if Estrada’s recent struggles are more than that.
