MLB’s single trade deadline will put Reds under the microscope

MLB’s single trade deadline will put Reds under the microscope

It's with that understanding, Manfred agreed to not implement a pitch timer for the remainder of the current agreement.

Time between innings will be cut from 2:05 to 2:00 for local games and 2:25 to 2:00 for national games.

The maximum number of mound visits allowed to each team has been reduced to five, from six.

The precise manner in which the singular trade deadline will impact action on the summer trade market won't be known for certain until we have multiple seasons of data, but from a distance it figures to heighten July trade activity.

New 'Avengers: Endgame' trailer features Captain Marvel
Looks like the Avengers are all decked out in matching outfits (possibly needed to join Ant-Man in the Quantum Realm?). Hawkeye is also seen running away in a scene from an explosion to what seems to be a spaceship maybe.

Major League Baseball and the Players Association will form a joint committee to consider other changes.

With the continued success of MLB Advanced Media and MLB Network, MLB continues to find innovative ways for its fans to enjoy America's National Pastime and a truly global game. Further details on the new fan voting format will be announced in April. Starters for the Midsummer Classic will be chosen in a one-day "Election Day" by fans who will choose among three finalists at each position. Teams will still have the option to place players on waivers (and they can be claimed) after that date, but they will no longer be eligible to be traded.

Both Clubs will start the 10th inning of the All-Star Game, and each subsequent inning, with a runner on second base (re-entry substitutions allowed for runners).

According to Passan, MLB plans to give $1 million to the victor of the Home Run Derby and $2.5 million in cash prizes for the event as a whole. The derby will include $2.5 million in prizes overall giving more incentive for the big-name stars to participate.

Beto O'Rourke plans first Iowa visit amid 2020 speculation
Beto O'Rourke and Oprah Winfrey talk during Oprah's SuperSoul Conversations at PlayStation Theater, Feb. 5, 2019 in New York City. Sherrod Brown in Iowa before he decided not to run for president in 2020, are also assisting O'Rourke in Iowa, per Politico.

Philliies slugger Bryce Harper reacts to the New York Yankees not making a stronger push for him in free agency before he took a 13-year, $330-million deal from Philadelphia. The two sides have also agreed to eliminate the August 31 waiver deadline in 2019 and expand rosters to 26 in 2020.

The agreement will also limit September call-ups to 28, instead of the current maximum of 40 allowed under the current policy. Each player who is not a pitcher must be designated a position before his first day on the active roster.

The amount of days pitchers must spend on the Injured List increases from 10 for 15 days as does the minimum assignment period of pitchers optioned to the minors. That designation will remain in effect for the player, and can not change, for the remainder of the championship season and Postseason.

Minimum number of batters faced for pitchers will be set to three, or the pitcher must throw until the end of the half-inning (with exception for illness/injury).

Retail inflation seen rising, industrial growth may soften
Gas prices for U.S. drivers were $2.31 a gallon on average in February, up from $2.25 in January, according to the U.S. The core PCE price index increased 1.9 per cent on a year-on-year basis in December after a similar gain in November.
