DH likely coming to NL in 2020

A male baseballs batter makes a dramatic play by hitting a ball. The stadium is blurred behind him. Only the lights of the stadium shine brightly, creating a halo effect around the bulbs.

Those who’ve long called for a Designated Hitter in the National League are likely to get their wish. So says MLB Network insider Jon Heyman.

He reports the Players Association is expected to approve a universal DH rule for the modified 2020 season as it continues to work toward a broader agreement to get all other bats swinging.

It’s a move that would spare pitchers unnecessary miles as they navigate an unusual season structure.

If approved, how likely is a return to traditional rules in 2021? Would you rather see the DH universally eliminated?
