The 2020 MLB season will look a lot different when it happens, and one rule change could be hugely significant for 2020 and beyond.
The universal DH rule is part of the proposal that MLB is expected to present and be accepted by the players.
One question is whether this could be a precursor to this rule becoming permanent. There have been rumblings about a universal DH rule for years now, and it sounded like a realistic possibility that could happen within a year or two even before the season was suspended. If it comes into place in 2020, it’s worth wondering if it will ever go away.
