Both teams will have Wednesday and Thursday to rest before Friday’s first game. This should favor the Red Sox, as it could help Nathan Eovaldi get enough days off to be in line to start Game 1 of the series. He started Sunday in Game 3 against the Rays. So that would give him a week of rest. The Astros are in a different place. There is a good chance that Framber Valdez will start Game 1 followed by Luis Garica or Jose Urquidy. The last of these two Urquidy was to start ALDS Game 4 against the ChiSox before the rain.
