    MLB's new three-batter-minimum rule
    https://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/28124981/how-mlb-new-three-batter-minimum-rule-impact-game

    Baseball's owners voted to make a major rule change beginning in the 2020 MLB season, requiring pitchers to either face a minimum of three batters or complete a half-inning

    Mound Visit Limit
    They have been cut from six to five this year

    Expanded Injured List for Pitchers
    Teams can’t use a revolving door as easily to stash pitchers, effectively creating a 17-man pitching staff out of a 13-man staff. (We’re looking at you, Dodgers.) Now pitchers have to stay on the IL or in the minors on options for 15 days, not 10.

    Does that mean if a pitcher comes in with 2 outs and gets the out he has to stay the next inning and pitch to 2 batters? Sounds like a stupid rule.

    An Astros fan by the name of Tony Adams went through every Astros home game in the 2017 season and logged trash can bangs. ... Adams reminds us that Commissioner Manfred's report stated that the Astros also used hand-clapping, whistling, and yelling early in the season before settling on trash can banging.Jan 29, 2020
