On Tuesday, Major League Baseball issued a memo to all 30 teams detailing how it intends to enforce rules against pitchers using foreign substances to doctor baseballs.
We tell you everything you need to know about MLB’s memo and how it will impact the Dodgers. Next, Trevor Bauer responded to MLB’s memo on Twitter and as you might expect the reigning NL Cy Young award winner had some strong opinions on it.
Plus, is Trevor Bauer worth $40 million a year to the Dodgers without the use of foreign substances and how much blame should MLB get for this “sticky situation?”
To read more on this news, Brook Smith has you covered below.
But in terms of the real effect that the rule enforcement and changes will have on baseball, look no further than the reaction around the league. Bauer went off. Today Dave Roberts called the move “reactive” over proactive pointing to the fact that the league would have implemented changes in the offseason instead of now.
Rays ace Tyler Glasnow suffered an elbow injury that puts his season in jeopardy and he points to the rules being enforced now instead of at a time where pitchers can train and adjust accordingly as causation for that injury.
