Rule Changes

Pitchers in Head-to-Head Leagues - The distinction between starting pitchers and relief pitchers has been removed. All pitchers are a single pitcher position. MLB is trending towards openers to go with closers plus more 5-inning or fewer starts, so the line between relievers and starters has been blurred.

Eligibility - Due to the shortened 2020 season, reduced previous season requirement for eligibility to 10 games played. To be consistent, in-season eligibility also changed to 10 games played at a position.

Auction Clocks - The auction rebid clock has been changed to 12 seconds when a bid is made with less than 12 seconds on the bid clock (was previously 8 seconds).
