  • Padres' Jeremiah Estrada: Claimed by Padres

    The Padres claimed Estrada off waivers from the Cubs on Monday, Maddie Lee of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Estrada has a big arm, having struck out 21 over 16.1 innings at the major-league level and 180 in 117 frames in the minors. He's also sported terrible control at all levels. Still, the Padres saw his swing-and-miss stuff worthy of a gamble.

  • Cubs' Jeremiah Estrada: Removed from 40-man roster

    The Cubs outrighted Estrada to Triple-A Iowa on Thursday, Sahadev Sharma of The Athletic reports.

    Estrada was lit up for eight earned runs on 12 hits and 12 walks over 10.2 major-league innings this season. The 25-year-old right-hander no longer holds a 40-man roster spot in Chicago.

  • Cubs' Jeremiah Estrada: Recalled from Triple-A

    The Cubs recalled Estrada from Triple-A Iowa on Monday, Maddie Lee of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Estrada will replace Brad Boxberger after Boxberger was placed on the 15-day injured list with a fight forearm strain. In four MLB innings Estrada has yet to allow a run, and he'll likely be a mid-innings option for the Chicago bullpen while he's with the club.

  • Cubs' Jeremiah Estrada: Optioned to Triple-A

    Estrada was optioned to Triple-A Iowa by the Cubs on Thursday, Maddie Lee of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Estrada has spun four scoreless innings in the majors this season but nonetheless finds himself back in the minors. He's clearing out to make room for Thursday's starter, Jameson Taillon, who was activated from the 15-day injured list.

  • Cubs' Jeremiah Estrada: Back in majors

    Estrada was recalled from Triple-A Iowa by the Cubs on Friday, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

    The Cubs needed a fresh arm in the bullpen after Javier Assad's abbreviated start Thursday. Estrada was unscored upon in his first five appearances with Iowa and could work his way into high-leverage situations with the big club.

  • Cubs' Jeremiah Estrada: Sent to Triple-A

    Estrada was optioned to Triple-A Iowa on Saturday, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Estrada is a popular speculative play for saves in draft-and-hold leagues, but it seemed likely he would open the year in the minors. He gave up one run with four strikeouts in four innings this spring after registering nine saves across the three highest levels of the minors last season en route to making his big-league debut.

  • Cubs' Jeremiah Estrada: May be ticketed for minors

    Estrada could begin the year in the minors with the Cubs adding several new relievers in the offseason, Patrick Mooney and Sahadev Sharma of The Athletic report.

    Chicago added veterans Michael Fulmer and Brad Boxberger, along with Tyler Duffey on a minor-league deal. With the increased competition, Estrada may start the year with Triple-A Iowa. The 24-year-old made his MLB debut in 2022 and appeared in five games out of the bullpen for the Cubs. Estrada throws hard and has displayed good strikeout potential, so he could be in the MLB mix at some point again in 2023.

  • Cubs' Jeremiah Estrada: Shuttled to Triple-A

    The Cubs optioned Estrada to Triple-A Iowa on Wednesday, Taylor McGregor of Marquee Sports Network reports.

    He'll cede his spot in the Chicago bullpen to Keegan Thompson (back), who was reinstated from the 15-day injured list in a corresponding move. Estrada has worked 5.2 innings in relief for the Cubs this season, giving up two earned runs while striking out eight.

  • Cubs' Jeremiah Estrada: Back in big leagues

    The Cubs selected Estrada's contract from Triple-A Iowa on Thursday.

    Earlier Thursday, the Cubs returned Estrada to Triple-A since he had previously been serving as a replacement for Justin Steele, who was unable to join the team for its series in Canada with the Blue Jays due to his vaccination status. Chicago thus needed to make a second transaction to add Estrada back to the 40-man roster and 28-man active roster as one of its two September call-ups. Estrada proceeded to appear out of the bullpen in an 8-4 loss to the Cardinals on Saturday, when he coughed up one run on one hit and one walk while recording two outs.

  • Cubs' Jeremiah Estrada: Moves back to Triple-A

    The Cubs returned Estrada to Triple-A Iowa on Thursday.

    Estrada and fellow reliever Brendon Little were both added to the 40-man roster and 26-man active roster as replacement players earlier this week, when starters Justin Steele and Adrian Sampson were placed on the restricted list for the Cubs' series in Toronto. With both Steele and Sampson now having been formally reinstated, Estrada will lose his spot on major-league roster, but he'll remain on the 40-man roster since Chicago selected his contract. He made his MLB debut in Tuesday's 5-3 loss, striking out two and working around a walk in a scoreless inning out of the bullpen.

  • Cubs' Jeremiah Estrada: Called up from minors

    Estrada's contract was selected from Triple-A Iowa on Tuesday.

    Estrada was called up to take the roster spot of one of the two pitchers who were placed on the restricted list while the Cubs play a three-game set in Toronto. He will presumably return to Iowa after the series concludes, but the Cubs will not be required to place him on waivers.
