"With Julio pitching today, I'd like to give him a little extra time," Gonzalez said. "We want to give him an extra day or two; maybe plunk a left-hander in there and give him another day. But we'll see how it goes."
The only definite is that left-handers Alex Wood and Mike Minor won't pitch back-to-back games, as they've done recently.
"We are gonna split the left-handers; it's just a matter of where," Gonzalez said. "I just have to wait a day or two to see who needs the extra day and who doesn't."
If Teheran starts Saturday, then either Wood or Minor would start Sunday. If Teheran is pushed back until Sunday, then either Wood or Minor would go on Saturday.
