News: Estrada will compete for the Blue Jays' fifth starter spot this spring, the Toronto Globe & Mail reports.
Impact: Aaron Sanchez and Daniel Norris will compete with Estrada for the job, while Sanchez and Estrada could be moved to the bullpen if they fail to secure a starting role. Estrada's home-run tendencies make him a very risky option as a starter if he remains in that role with Toronto, limiting his value with the move to Rogers Centre and the other hitter-friendly environs of the American League East.

News: Estrada agreed to a one-year, $3.9 million contract with the Blue Jays on Friday, avoiding arbitration.
Impact: Estrada was traded from the Brewers to the Blue Jays in the offseason as part of a deal that sent Adam Lind back to Milwaukee. He figures to slot in at the back end of the Jays' rotation in 2015, but will need to limit the home runs allowed (29 over 150.2 innings in 2014), which could be a challenge in one of the more hitter-friendly ballparks in the league.
