MLB Rule Change Proposals

February 6, 2017

From here:

http://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/18631714/mlb-proposes-scrapping-intentional-walk-raising-strike-zone

TL;DR version:

  1. strike zone raised from bottom of knee to top of knee
  2. Catcher can announce ‘we’re putting him on first’ rather than play catch for an intentional walk.

We’re all for 2. as it would sped up play.

On the other hand, 1. seems like it would lead to more balls and walks. Pass.

MLBPA would have to approve any changes.
