Jacob deGromNYM - SP
News: DeGrom has gastroenteritis and will not make his scheduled start Saturday, James Wagner of The New York Times reports. (Sep 29 1:09p)
Impact: Seth Lugo will move up to start Saturday in his place and Noah Syndergaard will start Sunday (limited to 25 pitches), so deGrom's season is over. This is a tough blow for owners who were relying on a final start from deGrom. He finishes the year with career bests in innings (201.1), strikeouts (239), strikeout rate (28.9 percent) and wins (15). While the rest of the Mets' rotation has been ravaged by injuries, deGrom proved to be a true ace, and should be treated as such in 2018 drafts. (Source: RotoWire / Time: 1:09p ET)

News: Manager Bruce Bochy announced Tuesday that Bumgarner will not make another start this season, Andrew Baggarly of The San Jose Mercury News reports. (Sep 26 5:15p)
Impact: Bumgarner's health isn't a concern at this point in the season, but the Giants will shut their ace down on a high note following his strong 7.2 inning one-run outing Saturday against the Dodgers. Bumgarner will conclude the year with a 3.32 ERA over 17 starts and will again be one of the most coveted starting pitching assets in 2018 fantasy baseball drafts. (Source: RotoWire / Time: 5:15p ET)
