The other left-handed starter, Dallas Keuchel, will pitch Wednesday's series finale in Detroit. Jordan Lyles will remain in the rotation, moving up a day to throw the series opener on Friday in Pittsburgh. Bedard will then take the hill Saturday, with Bud Norris hopefully feeling healthy enough to finish off the three-game set.
The series will mark the Astros' first in a National League ballpark since switching over from the NL Central to the American League West this season. It also provides a unique situation where the pitchers have to bat, which could factor into Norris' availability.
