Now let's project the ALDS schedule based on this, which has probably already changed since I started looking at it:
ALDS G1 (Thursday): Verlander can pitch on seven days' rest
ALDS G2 (Friday): Keuchel pitches on regular rest
ALDS G3 (Sunday): Could go in a number of directions here, since it will have been at least a week since any of the G3 options have pitched.
ALDS G4 (Monday): Same
ALDS G5 (Wednesday): Verlander
