MLB’s on-field clock mechanism has received a lot of criticism, but super agent Scott Boras believes it can affect the health of players and he is calling for change.
A guest on “Baseball is not boringThis week, Boras said the clocks on the field are speeding, creating demand for an extra slot on the MLB roster.
“The pitching clock is surprising a lot of these people,” said Boras. “It’s very difficult to get past five innings right now.” “I think we definitely have to expand the number of pitchers we have on Major League teams. We’re going to see a bunch of players with 65, 75 appearances. We have to cut that back.”
Boras says pitching staff should expand from 14 to even 15 players. Doing so can help keep innings down for pitchers and can reduce the use of players in position on the field, a method that became even more common in the Bronze Age. ball pool.
On-field clocks have been a hot-button issue throughout the season, prompting players on both sides to issue complaints. In April, Philadelphia Phillies slugger Bryce Harper commented on the clock on the field, saying that many at MLB “wants our game back.” Meanwhile, Harper’s teammate, the pitcher Zack Wheeler says he may never be “comfortable” with the pitching watch, while Scherzer max of the New York Mets shared similar remarks.
MLB does not have the ability to drop changes made to speed up the game. However, as suggested by Boras, perhaps a few tweaks are to improve the player and the game in general.
