MLB Getting Rid of Disabled List, Sort Of

													JOSE OSUNA- MATT SUNDAY  DKPS

The Major League Baseball Players Association reportedly proposed a universal designated hitter as part of its back-and-forth with the league regarding rule changes for the upcoming season, according to The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal. "They say, 'It's overblown, ' or, 'What you're saying is fringe.' But not baseball".

"In recent years, the commissioner has received several inquiries regarding the name of the "Disabled List", Pfeifer wrote".

The DL will now be known as the "injured list" according to an ESPN report, which cited a source familiar with the MLB's plan.

The league will make the change out of concern that the term "disabled" for injured players falsely conflates disabilities with injuries and an inability to participate in sports. It's the "injured reserve list" in NFL and NHL, the "inactive list" in the NBA.

Major League Baseball says it's concerned the term "disabled" can confuse a player's injury with the "inability to participate in sports". MLB's "disabled list" got its name in 1915, so the jargon was a bit dated. 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.

"I think it's a huge step for the disability community", Ruderman said, "and it looks at the fact that being disabled is part of the human condition, and disabled people deserve to have their human rights recognized like any other minority group".

Seems like a fitting snapshot of what it's like to live in America in 2019.
