Zuck reporting that Gio's throwing in the bullpen currently and Max played catch on the field with the other pitchers and the trainers. Max gave a fist pump when he finished his workout.

Looks like Gio for Game 2 and Max for Game 3.  Zuck reporting that this is because the team is reluctant to push Max too fast (can't say I blame them).

Unless its an elimination situation (us being eliminated), I'm not sure Max gets game 3.  There is no advantage to using him in 3 instead of 4, in terms of being able to come back in the series on normal rest, and I think there is no chance Max would come out of the pen in a game 5 in either case.   They may give him as much time to recover as possible.  Dropping from 2 to 3 is the significant change.
