Astros tinkering with rotation vs. Mariners

HOUSTON -- With a postseason berth all but guaranteed, Astros manager A.J. Hinch has begun the process of mapping out the number of starts his frontline starters will make over the final two weeks of the season in deference to their workload and potential first-round matchups.

Right-hander Gerrit Cole, the scheduled starter for Tuesday against the Seattle Mariners, will instead pitch the opener of the weekend series against the Los Angeles Angels on Friday. He is 12 2/3 innings shy of his third 200-inning season and has made 30 starts for the third time. His 260 strikeouts are a career high by a wide margin, 58 more than he had in 2015 with Pittsburgh.

"He's really been worked pretty hard," Hinch said of Cole. "He's been very consistent in his work. We have the opportunity to push him back a couple days; we know he's only going to get two starts."
