It might still happen. I have to say, I personally don't like the DH, but I agree that it would be beneficial to the team as it would allow us to get Aguilar and Coop in every day.

Pretty sure a reporter was just looking for a quote, not tipping their hand regarding negotiations. I think we can expect there's no DH. It's pretty late for NL teams to be shifting their rosters around. Possible DHs have already been optioned or released. Owners would have a fit.

I think at this point, there certainly won't be one for the NL in 2021 (though with Manfred in charge, who knows).....


But, while I like NL play, I think it's time for the DH to come to the NL as well.  I love the occasional big pitcher hit, but the black hole spot is old.  Not to mention with the pitching rule changes (facing X number of batters, etc), as well as the ever increasing price of pitchers, there's no need for them to potentially get hurt batting or running the bases.

After this season

It'll definitely be instituted for next season, or at the latest the season after if they want to allow a "transition" period.....but I think it'll be immediate as a bone to throw the union (15 more jobs immediately).
