Major League Baseball and Union Discussing Massive Rule Changes That Will Seriously Impact Game

"They say, 'It's overblown, ' or, 'What you're saying is fringe.' But not baseball".

The league will be making the change out of concern that the expression "disabled" falsely compares disabilities with injuries. There has also been talk about expanding rosters to 26, extending time a player can be on the disabled list, but the two biggest rule changes are the three-batter minimum for pitchers and a universal DH.

Bean within weeks wrote back to Link20 leaders that he agreed, Ruderman said, and before the end of the year, baseball had officially ditched the "disabled list" moniker.

In its ongoing efforts to accelerate the pace of play, Major League Baseball has proposed a rule that would require a three-batter minimum for pitchers, Ken Rosenthal of the Athletic reported.

Major League Baseball and the players' association continue to discuss possible amendments to the usage of the list itself, as a number of teams have been accused of using a shorter DL - it was changed from 15 days to 10 days in 2017 - to manipulate their rosters, sources told ESPN. The distinction given from now on is the "injured list". Some people thought it was a good step toward inclusion and an example of a progressive society. A player on the 60-day IL does not count toward the 25- or 40-man roster. The National League created the first "disabled list" in 1915, which allowed players to sit out but retain their roster spot - and, crucially, their salaries - for 10 days. The NFL also has a physically unable to perform list. The MLB asked to re-estabilsh the longer version for all players, but the union has express a willingness to agree to those terms for pitchers while position players would remain on a 10-day version.
