MLB, MLBPA announce roster, rule changes for 2022 season

The season is just a week away, and given the shortened Spring Training resulting from the offseason lockout, MLB and MLBPA have come to agreement on a series of roster changes, and one rule “change” for the upcoming season.

All the roster rules basically give teams some flexibility through May 1.

  • 28-man roster limit through May 1, including 29 for doubleheaders.
  • The 13-pitcher roster limit comes into play on May 2; teams will not be limited to 13 pitchers until that date.
  • Pitchers will be eligible for placement on a 10-day Injured List through May 1.
