Dodgers News: Noah Syndergaard Removed from Start in Milwaukee with Injury

Tuesday night starting pitcher Noah Syndergaard was pulled after one inning in Milwaukee while dealing with a nasty blister issue on his right index finger. For the Dodgers, it’s an unfortunate situation that puts the bullpen in a tough spot for the next few days.

Syndergaard tossed a clean first inning — even though he was technically bleeding from his finger tip — but he was hit hard. He gave up a 102 mph single to lead off hitter Christian Yelich and 98 mph fly ball to Willy Adames that just missed clearing the wall in left field.


The Dodgers officially say Noah left the game with a cut on his finger, according to the game broadcast

Right-hander Phil Bickford came on in relief of Syndergaard in what is now a bullpen game for Dave Roberts and the Dodgers.

For the most part, the bullpen should be ready to go. Everyone but RHP Wander Suero is expected to be available. Additionally, the Dodgers just added an arm with the return of LHP Justin Bruihl who was called up to take the roster spot of Caleb Ferguson who left the team on paternity leave.

How Long Will Syndergaard Be Out?

Considering the quick look at the blister in the dugout, it looks like he could miss a few weeks at minimum.

We’ll certainly learn more after the game, but if ends up as bad as it looked on the broadcast, we could end up seeing Gavin Stone or Michael Grove making their next two or three starts in the big leagues for Los Angeles.

The Dodgers may need to give old friend Rich Hill a call to get the number for his laser guy… or his pee guy.
