Gonna be a lot of pitchers faking injuries to get out of that. Actually, pitchers might legitimately get hurt if they have to throw 40 pitches to get through 3 batters.

Then they'll be forced to go on the 15 day IL. If they want to do that, cool.

That was in relation to the "faking injuries" thing, not the "actual injuries" thing. Although how many times in baseball history has a pitcher taken 40 pitches to get through 3 guys?

I don't want to get mired down in the fake injury thing; but if a pitcher leaves a game with an "injury" they don't automatically go on the IL (IL...can't get used to that. Like they are going to Illinois to go fishing in a quarry pond or something) They always get listed as "day to day" initially until a medical follow up. So the concern would be a pitcher stating he was injured to avoid having to face three batters; I don't think that is much of a concern at all. If someone on your staff can't face three batters they probably should be selling hot dogs in the stands instead of pitching.

They could just call the umpires mother a whore and get run.

That's what I'd do.

I'm sure a bunch of pitchers getting tossed for calling the ump a [expletive] will definitely not cause them to close that particular "loophole".
