• Mattingly discusses safety issues with Utley
In addition, it was reported on Tuesday by ESPN.com that the second baseman rejected an offer from Major League Baseball of a one-game suspension for the slide in Saturday's Game 2, which resulted in a broken leg for Tejada. Utley is eligible to play until a decision on his appeal is made, but he did not appear in Monday's Game 3, a 13-7 loss that gave New York its lead in the series.
Game 4 of the best-of-five series is scheduled to be played tonight at 8 ET at Citi Field (TBS).
