Major League Baseball has announced a number of rule changes that will roll out over the next two seasons.

For the upcoming season, MLB is establishing a hard trade deadline of July 31st, eliminating August trades. They’re also tweaking the All-Star voting rules and creating a $1 million prize for the annual Home Run Derby.

The biggest on-field changes won’t happen until 2020, including a new rule that relief pitchers will have to face a minimum of three batters. Rosters will also expand from 25 to 26 players and the between-innings break will be reduced to two minutes.

What do you think of the new rules? What rules would you add? Will the three-batter rule significantly change how bullpens are used?
