Marco Estrada struggled in his second Cactus League start on Saturday, surrendering three runs on seven hits over 3 1/3 innings against the Cubs.
The 30-year-old right-hander fanned one and didn't walk a batter in the game. He still has plenty of time to get the kinks worked out before the start of the regular season. While he's inconsistent and carries ratio risk, Estrada's high-strikeout potential makes him a worthy option as a mid-round starter in mixed leagues.
Christian Colon went 2-for-3 and drove home a pair of runs in a losing effort against the Brewers in Cactus League play on Saturday.
Colon also doubled and scored a run in the game. The 24-year-old infielder has already proven himself at Triple-A Omaha, and with a strong showing this spring could win a bench spot on the Royals Opening day roster.
