No Hearing Today; Utley To Play

Multiple media outlets are reporting Major League Baseball will not conduct an appeals hearing today, thereby enabling Dodgers second baseman Chase Utley to play in tonight’s NLDS Game 3 against the Mets.

Utley was suspended for Games 3 and 4 following his take-out slide that left Mets shortstop Ruben Tejada with a broken right leg,

In a statement, Utley said: “The players’ association and my agent are handling the appeals process. I have nothing more to say other than to reiterate that I feel terrible about Ruben’s injury. Now my teammates and I are focused on Game 3 and doing everything we can to win this series.”
