New Rule Changes
2 Trade Deadlines Into 1: There now will only be one trade deadline, the July 31 trade deadline—the “waiver trade deadline” in August will no longer be a thing and will be eliminated for the 2019 season.
Fewer Commercials: Commercial breaks between innings will change from 2 minutes, 5 seconds to 2 minutes flat in local games, while national games will go from 2 minutes, 25 seconds to just 2 minutes.
Decreased Mound Visits: The maximum amount of mound visits by coaches/managers will be five per game, down from six previously.
