First Go-Round of Oklahoma City's Piggyback Tandem

Oklahoma City's piggyback tandem gets started off tonight against Memphis. Here's the lineup for the first four games:

Tonight: Jordan Lyles / Paul Clemens
Friday: Jarred Cosart / Dallas Keuchel
Saturday: John Ely / Brett Oberholtzer
Sunday: Rudy Owens / Jose Cisnero

Then the roles flip-flop, of course on four-days rest. John Ely:

“The challenge will be staying sharp between outings, figuring out physically what it's going to take to maintain throughout the course of this entire experiment. You're throwing less, but there's less rest. It can be stressful if you don't go about it the right way.”
