MLB has talked to the union about expanding the anti-gambling provision section of the Major League Rules to prohibit the disclosure of confidential information that could be used in betting.
Most of the rule changes listed in Jeff Passan's tweet above were ones proposed by the league, while the Players Association countered with ideas of there own on Friday. The group in late 2018 wrote to Billy Bean, an Major League Baseball vice resident and special assistant to the commissioner, about misconceptions perpetuated by the term "disabled list", conflating an injured individual with a healthy disabled person and suggesting disabled people are unfit to play sports.
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. Some people thought it was a good step toward inclusion and an example of a progressive society. "We got another week before they have to report". Manfred says he remains focused on potential pace-of-play changes for 2019, which include a 20-second pitch clock and forcing relief pitchers to face a minimum of three batters to cut down on pitching changes.
The rules governing the injured list remain the same. 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. A player on the 10-day IL does not take up a roster spot on the active 25-man roster.
In 2011, Major League Baseball started a seven-day list specifically for concussions.
