MLB Changes Lineup Submission Process

Major League Baseball is mandating that managers send their lineup cards into the Commissioner’s Office before releasing them in the clubhouse to reporters and players prior to games.

The move comes as the league wants to ensure that information passed around the clubhouse and the stadium doesn’t provide an edge to gamblers.

“We are updating a number of our procedures to reduce integrity risks associated with the expansion of sports betting in light of the Supreme Court’s ruling last May,” Major League Baseball said in a statement. “One new procedure is that we now ask clubs to submit starting lineups in a uniform fashion in order to reduce the risk of confidential information being ‘tipped.’ This approach mirrors those of international sports leagues in more developed betting markets.”

After the manager submits the lineup card — which usually happens 2-3 hours before a game but can be submitted as late as 15 minutes prior — it goes to baseball and those at MLB.com in charge of data.

The lineups for a particular team will be disseminated at once, though the thought is that baseball will not withhold lineups from the public if they are submitted early.

This will create much more structure around the release of lineups, which had been a scattered process in the past, depending on the day and the team, according to The Action Network’s Justin Phan. In the past, the first look at a team’s finalized lineup wouldn’t always come from a club official or a credible journalist.

Sources say that operators who pay for baseball’s official data, like MGM, didn’t negotiate for this change in procedure, but lineups will become part of the official feed provided to the league’s partners.

Sources said the exact flow of how it will all operate is still being worked out.

All this panic from MLB is comical ... They are acting like sports betting is something new and nobody has ever bet on baseball
