Baltimore Baseball: Rule Changes

Recommended Posts

Pitchers who have to stay in the minors for 15 days instead of the old 10 days will be a monkey in the wrench for our Norfolk Shuttle.

Yes it will. Also as the article states:

<Teams won’t be able to use the IL as a precaution for relatively minor injuries in 2020>

But, if somebody on the parent club at that position is injured in that span, I believe the player can be recalled.

I'm pretty sure that this just means that it is more problematic, given the 15-day requirement for pitchers versus 10 days.  MLB isn't going into the medical field, as I don't believe that they will be going behind teams' medical staffs and making any kind of determination as to what constitutes "minor."  If teams want to IL a guy over something relatively "minor" they still can, but a pitcher must stay on the IL at least 15 days.

MLB desperately wants the Yankees in the World Series.  God knows neither the Yankees nor MLB make enough money now, let's pull in more, more, more!  Bring the World Series back to New York!  Let's eliminate the rules that might give Tampa or other limited-budget teams any real chance of overcoming the rich teams' ability to spend huge money on their starting pitching and bullpens.  If we let managers of poor teams situationally manage their bullpen the way that has always been the basic rules in baseball, they may continue to find ways to overcome their disadvantages.  That is what the switch to the 15-day IL for pitchers and the three-batter rule accomplishes, IMO.  Game times, you say?  Hah!
