Major League Baseball to rename disabled list as 'injured list'

This change could entice two-sport athletes to stick with baseball. "The principal concern is that using the term "disabled" for players who are injured supports the misconception that people with disabilities are injured and therefore are not able to participate or compete in sports".

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.

"In recent years, the commissioner has received several inquiries regarding the name of the "Disabled List", Pfeifer wrote".

Major League Baseball and the players' association continue to discuss possible amendments to the usage of the list itself, as a number of teams have been accused of using a shorter DL - it was changed from 15 days to 10 days in 2017 - to manipulate their rosters, sources told ESPN.

Major League Baseball confirmed to ESPN on Thursday that it's changing the name of the "Disabled List" to the "Injury List".

"The name change is great", said Helena Berger, president and chief executive of the American Association of People with Disabilities, "but ultimately what really impacts people with disabilities are the experiences: being able to go to the stadiums, having the experience to work for Major League Baseball".

The expansion of rosters to 26 men with a 12-pitcher maximum. The MLB asked to re-estabilsh the longer version for all players, but the union has express a willingness to agree to those terms for pitchers while position players would remain on a 10-day version.

The modern disabled list was born in 1966, when players could sit out in 15-, 21- or 30-day increments.
