New Rule changes coming 2020...do we see them in DD?

SDS

So with the 2020 season threre are a few changes that can effect DD:

  1. 26 man roster: I think we may not see this in DD but if we did. Not sure if it would add an additional bench bat or RP.

  2. Minimum Number of Batters faced: So right now pitchers have to at least face 3 batters or end of inning. This will definitely be in the Show and I believe this will be very hard to get used to. Especially in a game mode like BR where now your SP has to go a full innning, people may not take all commons anymore.

SDS

I'd say all common bench and Bronze starters will be the new meta

Yup, thats what I was thinking.

SDS

I'll spread the commons between RP and the bench. I making less pitching changes in the beta so I don't feel like I need as many good RP.

Bench bats are now more effective because you can get the match up you want without burning a hitter. Before if you were stuck on getting the opposite hand match up people would send out a batter then switch again if there was a pitching change.

SDS

I doubt we get 26 man rosters. Even with 26 man rosters in real life, only 25 are eligible on any one day.

Real-life teams will obviously put the SP who pitched the day before as an ineligible man, but it doesn't make sense to do that in DD.

Where did you see 25 are eligible? I have read multiple articles saying all 26 are eligible to play on any given day.

Br will be so broken

I guess I'm misremembering, because you are right, they are all eligible, disregard everything I said lol.

HAHA, was just checking didn't know if I missed something!

SDS

The only restriction on the 26 man roster is you can have up to 13 pitchers

I don't even see why this would be up for debate. If it's a new rule, there's almost no reason for it NOT to be in MLB:TS 20. The only exception would be the 3-batter rule for BR, but other than that ... what reason could SDS have for not incorporating new rules into the game?

They found a reason to keep the DH out of DD...

I understand the three batter rule being added and then possibly taking it out for BR ONLY. The reason I am not 100% positive they add the 26th man is the fact that MLB has not disclosed the number of pitchers allowed for each team, and lets say they say you can have a max of 13 pitchers on your 26 man roster, some teams may have 13 but others may have 12. Will we be able to decide if we want the extra bat or extra pitcher?

SDS

The MLB has officially capped pitchers at 13 with the new 26 man rosters.

So that furthers my point, they can carry 13 but could also carry less. Wondering if they allow us that flexibility or not. Very small factor no matter what since it is rare to use your entire bullpen/bench bats.

SDS

Of course, I never have liked that the show makes us carry 12 pitchers

SDS

I would much prefer having a couple extra bench bats and a couple fewer relievers. Realistically, I've only run into a couple times when 7 relievers were necessary. I could probably get by just fine with 6 good ones. I'd like to have a backup catcher but I'm not wasting a slot on someone who can only do one thing.

Keep in mind that with the new rules, only players designated as pitchers can pitch unless the game goes to extras or one team is ahead by 7 or more, or the guy is Ohtani.

That whole letting position players pitch an inning won't work anymore.

It’s a game that’s supposed to be fun, so I could see them not bothering with the 3 batter minimum, at least for 20.

I mean, balks are annoying so they aren’t in DD, despite being a fundamental rule of baseball.

Unless you need to rest guys to get some energy back.
