Major League Baseball Renaming 'Disabled List' To 'Injured List'

We are going to have to start making adjusts coming up this Major League Baseball season.

According to Jeff Passan, the MLB will now use the term "injured list" instead of the disabled list as the official name for players who will be missing time due to injuries. The "DL" will be taken away by the MLB.

Major League Baseball will rename the disabled list as the "injured list," a source familiar with the plan told ESPN. The league will make the change out of concern that the term "disabled" for injured players falsely conflates disabilities with injuries and an inability to participate in sports.

The term disabled list was introduced by the National League in 1915. After 100+ years, we have a new name.
