As Jake Kaplan mentions in his tweet, the Astros have Cristian Javier on the roster for the ALDS while Jake Odorizzi and Marwin Gonzalez are the notable names who were left off. The Astros plan on pitching Lance McCullers Jr. in Game 1 on Thursday night. After that, it will be Framber Valdez in Game 2. We don’t know who will go in Game 3 yet, but chances are it’s veteran Zack Greinke.
