Major League Baseball Doing Away with 'Disabled' List

Will 15 teams be looking for an extra bat before opening day? More

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.

Major League Baseball is drawing a line between an injury and a disability with its decision to change the name of the "disabled list".

Major League Baseball and the Major League Baseball Players' Association exchanged proposals in January for possible rule changes that could create several new wrinkles to the game.

Jehovah’s Witness member jailed for extremism
The court convicted Dennis Christensen , 47, on charges of extremism some 20 months after law enforcement officials arrested him. The powerful Russian Orthodox Church has spoken out against the group, with one Church official branding it a "destructive sect".


The past two winters, the Players Association has been angered by the lack of spending in free agency, while the league has been raking in more and more money. Some people thought it was a good step toward inclusion and an example of a progressive society. And baseball got it. "We got another week before they have to report". The combination of these grievances has sparked these discussions of rule changes, despite the sides remaining in the middle of a collective bargaining agreement.

The "injured list" now includes a 10-day version (changed from a 15-day version in 2017) and a 60-day version that teams can use depending on the severity of a player's injury.

In 2011, Major League Baseball started a seven-day list specifically for concussions. Rosters held only 21 players, which, when injuries mounted, forced some players back into action before they were fully healthy. Manfred weighed in on the universal designated hitter debate at an owners' meeting in Orlando, Florida, calling the proposal to expand the designated hitter to the National League right away in 2019 too complicated, according to the Associated Press. They were even allowed to travel with their team as a "coacher".

Eagles QB Foles to buy his way to free agency
If there were guys that had issues, in hindsight, I wish we could have just talked about them. The tag number for next season for a quarterback is expected to be around $25 million.


Despite changing what the list will be called, there will be no changes to how the list formerly known as the disabled list, will be conducted.

Major League Baseball and the players' union have discussed in recent years reviving the 15-day distinction for pitchers, who are the subject of more roster reconfiguration than position players.

No British horse racing until Wednesday amid flu outbreak
While it is not thought to be life-threatening, like any virus, it limits the ability to compete and it is highly contagious. These will show whether the outbreak has spread further and guide decisions around when racing might resume.
