Injured Brewers pitcher Suter told to stay out of dugout

MILWAUKEE (AP) Injured Brewers pitcher Brent Suter says he's no longer allowed in the dugout during the NL Championship Series. He was with his teammates for Game 1 against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Suter tweeted about the situation before Game 2 on Saturday and then deleted his post. A spokesman for Major League Baseball says players who are not on the 40-man roster are not allowed in the dugout during playoff games.

Suter tweeted an apology and asked for MLB to let him back in. The gregarious left-hander promised "to behave and be only mildly weird!" before the post was taken down.

The 29-year-old Suter went 8-7 with a 4.44 ERA in 20 games this year before he was sidelined by a torn ligament in his left elbow. He was removed from the 40-man roster when he was placed on the 60-day disabled list on July 26.
