SYNDERGAARD GOES TO PHILS PEN AS PIGGY-BACK FOR ZACK WHEELER!

By Sarah Paley

The Phillies are moving Noah Syndergaard to the bullpen to make room for Zack Wheeler’s return, reports NBCSP’s Jim Salisbury.

Syndergaard will piggyback with Wheeler, who starts Wednesday night after missing five starts with right elbow/forearm inflammation.

Bailey Falter stays in the rotation after filling in since the end of July, first for Zach Eflin and then for Wheeler.

The Phillies had won all six of Falter’s starts over that span. The lefty started Sunday in Atlanta.

So here is the Phillies’ rotation for the coming homestand:

Tuesday night vs. Toronto: Kyle Gibson vs. RHP Ross Stripling

Wednesday night vs. Toronto: Zach Wheeler vs. RHP Kevin Gausman

Thursday night vs. Atlanta: Ranger Suarez vs. TBA

Friday night vs. Atlanta: Aaron Nola vs. TBA

Saturday afternoon vs. Atlanta: Bailey Falter vs. TBA

Sunday afternoon vs. Atlanta: Gibson vs. TBA
