Major League Baseball considering universal DH, lower mound, roster expansion in talks

Hopefully one of them is finally having the DH in the National League.

However, the negotiation reportedly includes forcing relief pitchers to face a minimum of three batters.

Regardless of what happens this winter, this will definitely be something to keep an eye on moving forward as big changes could be coming to Major League Baseball in the near future. "We got another week before they have to report". Both sides are concerned fan interest is lost during frequent breaks for pitching changes.

"I hope and I really do believe that there is a common interest between the players' association, the players, the owners and the commissioner's office in changes, whether they're midterm or otherwise, that make our entertainment product the best it could possibly be", Manfred said.

"I think that's just in an effort to try not to put the game in a test tube", Torre said.

Clubs were notified of the change in a December 20 memo to clubs from Jeff Pfeifer, senior director of league economics and operations in the commissioner's office. 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. The memo was obtained by ESPN, which first reported the news.

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.

"The league will make the change out of concern that the term "disabled" for injured players falsely conflates disabilities with injuries and an inability to participate in sports".

Spring training begins for pitchers and catchers next week and Opening Day is 50 days away, but Major League Baseball and the players association are considering jamming in significant rules changes for the regular season. All standards and requirements for placement, reinstatement, etc., shall remain unchanged. Major League Baseball has proposed to the players' association that the 10-day list go back to a 15-day minimum, its level before 2017.
