Estrada isn’t having his best season. Toronto’s Opening Day starter has the team 0.98 units in the black on a record of 5-9. However, Estrada has been inconsistent since returning from a three-week stay on the disabled list with a strained glute.

That was followed by a blister that formed on Estrada’s right middle finger during his rehab stint. Estrada has allowed 10 runs over 16.1 innings in three starts since coming off the DL.

Jorge Lopez is 25 years and just beginning his career with the Kansas City Royals. They obtained him as part of the trade July 27 that sent third baseman Mike Moustakas to the Milwaukee Brewers.

Lopez is replacing Burch Smith in the rotation. This will be Lopez’s third big league start. He went 0-1 with a 2.75 ERA in 10 relief appearances earlier this season with the Brewers and was 1-1 with a 5.40 ERA in two starts in 2015 with Milwaukee.
