    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.
