The timing means Utley will be eligible to play for the rest of the best-of-five NL Division Series against the Mets. New York took a 2-1 lead into Game 4 Tuesday night at Citi Field.

Utley was suspended two games for his rough slide in Game 2 that broke the leg of Mets shortstop Ruben Tejada. He was on the bench and didn’t play in the Dodgers’ 13-7 loss Monday night.
