Potential MLB, MLBPA rule changes could impact Giants at some point

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — For weeks there have been rumors that MLB and the MLB Players Association could come to an agreement on new rules, but that hasn’t been at the forefront of conversations in the Giants clubhouse.

When asked about the possibility of changes, several veteran players have pointed out that the real issue right now is the slowdown in free agency and service time manipulation, not a universal DH or a pitch clock.

“Some of these rules seem pretty insignificant to me considering the bigger picture,” Buster Posey said earlier this month.

A discussion of rule changes being considered- of note as a summary of those apparently under active consideration.
