MLB’s disabled list reduced from 15 days to 10 days under new CBA
According to a report from the Associated Press, Major League Baseball has reduced the minimum stay on the disabled list to 10 days. The 15-day DL has been changed to a 10-day disabled list. It appears the 7-day concussion DL will not be changed.
The AP reported, “The DL change will allow teams to make quicker decisions on whether to bring up a roster replacement rather than wait to see whether the injured player would be ready to return to action in less than two weeks.”
Major League Baseball has three disabled lists: the 7-day concussion DL, the 10-day DL and the 60-day DL. Rules with the 60-day DL also appear to be the same as it has been. A player on his team’s 60-day disabled list during the season does not count against the 40-man roster.
