    Spring training Reggie White Jersey in 2021 has got to be some kind of nightmare for baseball purists.Because big league camps are significantly smaller this year, there have been a number of rules put in place to help protect the health of players.For the first couple weeks of Cactus League action, if a pitcher threw at least 20 pitches, the manager could elect to roll (end) an inning to preserve the pitcher's health.Another rule that has both fans and pitchers flabbergasted to help preserve pitchers' health is teams having the Isaac Seumalo Jersey ability to pull a pitcher in the middle of an inning, then put him back out there for another inning later."It's probably the weirdest thing ever," said Rangers left-hander Taylor Hearn after his start on Sunday.

You're kind of sitting there a little bit longer and trying not to think too much. Moreso, you're trying to stay ready physically. Malcolm Jenkins Jersey ... Yeah, overall it felt so weird. weird."Hearn was pulled with two outs in the second inning, but then manager Chris Woodward sent him back out to pitch the third and fourth innings.The reason for the rule is to allow teams to have their pitchers hit their desired pitch count for Brian Dawkins Jersey the day without risking injury if they are taxed in one inning.
