The Five Trends That Could Define Baseball’s Future - The Ringer

Baseball is always evolving, partly through random mutations—like a suddenly supercharged baseball, assuming MLB is being honest about not intentionally tampering with the pill—but largely through the same principle that governs evolution in other cutthroat environments: Traits that aid an organism’s survival tend to propagate and multiply. Right now, we’re witnessing several tactics that used to be relative rarities cross the threshold at which they’ve actually become more common than not for at least a team or two. And if those plans pay off, the clubs embracing them today may be the bellwethers that tell us where the game is going.

Below, we’ll explain why we’re seeing certain teams double down on these tactics; whether every other team is destined to be doing the same six or so years from now; and whether that would be good or bad for baseball.
