MLB To Rename Disabled List As 'Injured List'

MLB To Rename Disabled List As 'Injured List'

Manfred added that expanding the DH-which was suggested by players in response to the league's said desire to speed up games-will have to wait until the next Collective Bargaining Agreement, which is now slated to take place before the 2022 season. "And I hope we can focus on some of the issues that need to get resolved quickly in the interim". But the players want it to happen.

Amid rising tensions between Major League Baseball and the MLB Player's Association, the two sides have been meeting about some major rule changes that could fundamentally alter many aspects of baseball as we know it.

Manfred first proposed the pitch clock before last season but the idea was shot down by players. "I wish they were signed and ready to go", Manfred said. "I think we've got a great game, and I think that with some improvements it will be even a better game".

Among them, according to an ESPN report, is a universal designated hitter; a three-batter minimum for pitchers; one trade deadline before the All-Star break; a 20-second pitch clock; and expanding rosters to 26 with a 12-pitchers maximum. The union wants its use at the big league level delayed until 2020. "They are different in kind than the type of playing-rule changes that we have out there", Manfred said.

Through Whitaker, Trump officially declares war on House oversight
The hearing will be the committee's first major oversight hearing looking at the Justice Department of this Congress. Whitaker had said he would not testify if the committee exercised its authority to subpoena him as a witness.

After three straight years of drops that left attendance at its lowest since 2003, Manfred said it is too early to speculate about 2019.

"The Major League Baseball Players Association responded last Friday with its own comprehensive proposal that addressed the players' concerns on competitive integrity and service-time manipulation in multifaceted fashion, sources said".

Teams will wear a special patch to mark the 150th anniversary of professional baseball, and there will be special hats on opening day. The National League, originally founded in 1876, consists of the following teams: Arizona Diamondbacks; Atlanta Braves; Chicago Cubs; Cincinnati Reds; Colorado Rockies; Los Angeles Dodgers; Miami Marlins; Milwaukee Brewers; New York Mets; Philadelphia Phillies; Pittsburgh Pirates; San Diego Padres; San Francisco Giants; St. Louis Cardinals; and Washington Nationals. If successful, Major League Baseball could resell rights to streaming services or cable providers. But in terms of precise changes, it's just impossible for me to predict at this point in the process.
