MLB insider Jon Heyman tweeted deGrom is dealing with side tightness, while SNY's Steve Gelbs explained Miguel Castro will start in place of the two-time National League Cy Young Award winner. 

ESPN's Jeff Passan added: 

Deesha Thosar of the New York Daily News then tweeted: 

Zac Wassink is a football and futbol aficionado who is a PFWA member and is probably yelling about Tottenham Hotspur at the moment. Erik Lamela and Eli Manning apologist. Chanted for Matt Harvey to start the ninth inning of Game 5 of the 2015 World Series at Citi Field. Whoops. You can find him on Twitter at @ZacWassink
