 SAN DIEGO (AP) -Los Angeles Dodgers left-hander David Wells dropped the appeal of his seven-game suspension he drew while with the rival San Diego Padres and began serving the punishment Saturday night.
Wells will miss his next scheduled start Wednesday at the Chicago Cubs. That start will be made by left-hander Eric Stults.
The 44-year-old Wells was suspended for his animated argument with an umpire who ejected him on July 7 against the Atlanta Braves. Wells was also fined $3,000. On Aug. 1, commissioner Bud Selig hit Wells with another $5,000 fine for criticizing the original punishment.
``I don't want to get myself into more trouble,'' Wells said when asked for comment as the Dodgers came off the field following batting practice before Saturday night's game against the Padres. But, he added, ``I had no choice.''
Wells was designated for assignment by his hometown Padres on Aug. 9. He agreed to a deal with the Dodgers on Aug. 23 and won his first start with them a week ago Sunday night at the New York Mets.
He pitched five strong innings against the Padres on Friday night but got a no-decision in a 6-4 loss.
The Dodgers entered Saturday night in third place in the NL West, four games behind the Padres. They were also four games back in the wild-card race.
