No DH changes for 2019 season

Commissioner Rob Manfred

"As a result, Major League Baseball has agreed to change the name 'Disabled List" to be the 'Injured List" at both the major and minor league levels. Also on the list of rules under consideration is moving away from multiple trade deadlines - now there is a non-waiver deadline in July, plus the waivers-required date a month later.

The expansion of rosters from 25 to 26 players, with a maximum of 12 pitchers.

A rule, which would be tested in spring training and the All-Star Game, in which each half-inning in extra innings would begin with a runner on second base.

Top baseball officials have criticized the union publicly in the past for not showing a willingness to come to the bargaining table, even as top union officials have criticized some owners over a perceived lack of competitiveness. The union proposed the idea, but the commissioner is more anxious about the pace of play rather than making the game more exciting with another hitter in the lineup rather than seeing a pitcher try to put down a bunt in the second inning with one out and a runner at first.

If I reach a point where I am not comfortable with that, then obviously we will sit down and have that discussion". Fairfax facing a sexual assault allegation , comedians have had a lot of material to work with.


For starters, part of the reason why the two sides have been meeting is over labor concerns within the player's union, as they are looking to create more roster and financial opportunities for the players. In one proposed scenario, teams that fail to meet a specified win threshold over a number of seasons would fall in draft position. If approved, pitchers would no longer take at-bats in National League or Interleague games.

All right, so the hope is that the next CBA the players get the universal DH that they want.

The union has long backed the adoption of the DH in the NL, under the thinking that those jobs would largely go to veteran hitters at higher salaries. After much talk about the pitch clock last offseason, the only major rule change to baseball in 2018 involved limiting mound visits.
