The National League created the first "disabled list" in 1915, which allowed players to sit out but retain their roster spot - and, crucially, their salaries - for 10 days. 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. The list will be comprised of a 10-day injured list for short-term injuries, and a 60-day version for long-term injuries. The union has expressed interest in 15 days for pitchers - who are typically the subject of roster manipulation - and 10 days for position players.
