MLB To Rename Disabled List As \'Injured List\' 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Fri Feb 8, 2019 4:15 am

Major League Baseball is renaming the disabled list.

It will now be known as the \"injured list.\"

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.

Jeff Pfeifer, MLB\'s senior director of league economics and operations, notified clubs of the name change in a memo written in December.

Makes sense. It's more accurate that way.

And I am left with nothing but an oath that gleams like a sword
To bathe in the blood of man
