Assistant general manager John Ricco said Sunday it's unknown how much time deGrom will miss and that is impacting the team's decision on who starts Tuesday.
If doctors determined deGrom will miss just one start, then
"The first thing we've got to see is if this is a one-start thing or more than that," Ricco said, per ESPN.
With the ascension of Matt Harvey and Zack Wheeler to the majors, Syndergaard has been the club's top pitching talent. He's taken some lumps in the minors this season, posting a 5.16 ERA and dealing with injuries, but the club is still confident in his talent. Their stance can change prior to the deadline, but it doesn't appear Syndergaard is going anywhere in the next few days.
Tulowitzki,, however, is dealing with an injured hip that could prove problematic in any trade talks. He still owns a sensational stat line of .340/.432/.603, though the differences in his home-away splits are significant. He's batting .417 at home with 14 home runs and 35 RBI. He's at .257/7/17 on the road.
