MLB Rumors: League Changing Name Of ‘Disabled List’ Before 2019 Season

The National League Is Definitely Getting The DH Soon Report: Universal DH, 3-batter minimum for pitchers among proposed rule changes

This change could entice two-sport athletes to stick with baseball.

Heeding the words of disability rights advocates, Major League Baseball has renamed the roster designation for players recovering from injury.

The disabled list is going on the permanent DL. "As a result, Major League Baseball has agreed to change the name "Disabled List" to be the 'Injured List" at both the major and minor league levels.

The disabled list as we know it is no more. Some people thought it was a good step toward inclusion and an example of a progressive society.

Per ESPN's report, rules regarding length will remain unchanged. The distinction given from now on is the "injured list".

Dodger fans shouldn't be frightened - the Dodgers will no doubt be using the injured list as liberally as they have in the past few years. A player on the 10-day IL does not take up a roster spot on the active 25-man roster. Rosters held only 21 players, which, when injuries mounted, forced some players back into action before they were fully healthy.

The first official disabled list was introduced by the National League in 1915, so after 104 years, perhaps it was finally time to get with the times.

During recent negotiations with the union, Major League Baseball asked to reestablish the 15-day version of the list. That could still happen, or there could be a hybrid structure with 15 days for pitchers and 10 for position players, though this recent adjustment is to the name only. Also on the list of rules under consideration is moving away from multiple trade deadlines - now there is a non-waiver deadline in July, plus the waivers-required date a month later.
