Utley Hearing Monday
by

Major League Baseball has announced that Los Angeles Dodger Chase Utley’s hearing on his appeal of a two-day suspension will be heard Monday. Utley was suspended by MLB Sunday as a result of his hard slide in Saturday’s National League Division Series game, which injured New York Mets shortstop Rubin Tejada.

Any decision arrived at Monday or later will have no effect on the NLDS, which will have concluded by then. (It will conclude tonight if the Dodgers, down two games to one to the Mets, don’t win.) Monday is an off-day in the National League Championship Series. So Monday’s hearing will not impede Utley’s participation should he win his appeal and the Dodgers win the next two games against the Mets.
