The leading candidate is seemingly Bartolo Colon, who made the start Friday night in Seattle. Another option is Jarrod Parker, who is set to pitch Saturday. On Sunday, it's Sonny Gray, who, despite having just 11 big league appearances under his belt, including nine starts, could very well find himself in the postseason rotation, should the ALDS reach four games.
Asked if this weekend's performances could affect decisions surrounding the playoff rotation, Melvin said, "I think we have a pretty good idea, but there's still room for potential movement as far as that goes. Nothing is for sure yet."
