2022 Major League Baseball season

The 2022 Major League Baseball season (MLB) was originally scheduled to begin on March 31 and end on October 2. The 2021–22 lockout caused the season to be delayed by one week, starting on April 7. The regular season ended on October 5. The start of the season was delayed by a lockout of players, which commenced on December 2, 2021, following the expiration of the collective bargaining agreement (CBA) between the league and the Major League Baseball Players Association (MLBPA).[2] On March 10, 2022, MLB and the MLBPA reached a deal on a five-year CBA, with Opening Day being held on April 7 (delayed from its originally planned March 31), and a full 162-game schedule played. Under the new CBA, universal designated hitter was adopted, the postseason was expanded to 12 teams, and the regular season tie-breaker game was eliminated. In November 2021, the Cleveland Indians announced their new team name, the Cleveland Guardians.[3] The 2022 MLB All-Star Game was held on July 19 and hosted by the Los Angeles Dodgers at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles.[4]

Lockout edit

On December 2, 2021, MLB owners voted unanimously to enact a lockout upon the expiration of the 2016 collective bargaining agreement between the league and the players' union. Issues raised between the league and union involved compensation for young players, as well as limitations on tanking to receive higher selections in the MLB draft.

The 2021–22 lockout was the first MLB work stoppage since the 1994–95 strike. It instituted a transaction freeze, including the postponement of the major league portion of the Rule 5 draft. It would be the first year since 1920 to not have a major league phase of the Rule 5 draft, though the minor league phase will still go ahead as scheduled.[5]

On March 10, 2022, almost 100 days after the beginning of the lockout, MLB and the MLBPA reached a deal on a new, five-year CBA.[6] Players began reporting to training camps on March 11, spring training began on March 17, and Opening Day on April 7.[6] The league planned to play a full, 162-game season, and games displaced by the delayed start have been rescheduled.[7][6]

Changes in the new CBA include a pre-arbitration bonus pool for eligible young players, increased minimum salaries (increasing from $700,000 to $780,000 over the length of the deal), a draft lottery to determine the top six selections in the draft, the establishment of an international draft, and the establishment of a Joint Competition Committee that, in 2023, will oversee the adoption of future rule changes (including base sizes and pitch clocks among others). The National League began adopting the designated hitter on a permanent basis, after having previously used it on a temporary basis during the shortened 2020 season, while the postseason will be expanded to 12 teams.[6][8]

Schedule edit

Major League Baseball released its 2022 regular season schedule on August 4, 2021. As has been the case since 2013, all teams play their four division opponents 19 times each for a total of 76 games, play six or seven games against each of the other ten same-league opponents for a total of 66 games, and 20 interleague games. Interleague play will feature AL East vs. NL Central, AL Central vs. NL West, and AL West vs. NL East.[9][10]

The MLB at Field of Dreams game returned for a second year, featuring the Chicago Cubs and the Cincinnati Reds at the purpose-built ballpark in Dyersville, Iowa, on August 11.[11] The Cubs won the game 4–2.

The annual MLB Little League Classic featured the Boston Red Sox and the Baltimore Orioles at Bowman Field in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, on August 21.[12] The Orioles won the game 5–3.

Both Canada and the United States have travel restrictions for individuals who are not vaccinated against the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes COVID-19. Each requires incoming travelers who are not citizens to have received a full course of an approved COVID-19 vaccine no later than 14 days before entry into the respective country.[13][14]

Rule changes edit

On March 10, Major League Baseball announced the following rule changes for the 2022 season:[15]

  • The temporary rule for the 2020 and 2021 seasons that had doubleheaders played as seven-inning games was repealed.
  • The National League adopted the designated hitter full-time. The NL previously adopted the rule temporarily in 2020 before removing it for the 2021 season.
  • Tie-breaker games at the end of the season have been eliminated and replaced with statistical tiebreakers.
  • The playoff system has been changed:
    • Twelve teams qualify for the postseason, with the division winners seeded 1 through 3, and three wild cards seeded 4 through 6 in their respective leagues.
    • The top two seeds in each league will receive a bye into the Division Series.
    • The lowest-seeded division winner and three wild card teams (each seeded according to regular season record), will play a best-of-three Wild Card round, with the higher seed hosting all three games. The 3-seed will play the 6-seed, and the 4-seed will play the 5-seed.
    • There is no re-seeding of the bracket. The 1-seed will play the winner of the 4-seed/5-seed series, and the 2-seed will play the winner of the 3-seed/6-seed series in the Division Series.

On March 22, MLB introduced a set of temporary rules for 2022:[16]

  • If a team voluntarily waives the designated hitter spot so that its starting pitcher can be in the batting order, that pitcher can remain in the game as a designated hitter after being replaced by a relief pitcher. This was colloquially called the "Ohtani rule" after rare two-way player Shohei Ohtani.
  • The rule establishing an automatic runner[17] on second base to start each extra inning in regular season games, previously repealed on March 10, was reinstated.
  • Rosters were expanded from 26 players to 28 players until May 2, due to the shortened spring training.[18]

On April 5, the league announced that all teams may use PitchCom, a wireless system for catchers to request pitches by type and location. PitchCom is intended to reduce the risk of sign stealing and to quicken the pace of play.[19]

On April 26, the league announced that limiting rosters to 13 pitchers had been delayed until May 30, allowing teams to carry up to 14 pitchers until then.[18] The 13-pitcher limit was later delayed again, becoming effective June 20.[20]

    • Recorded his 2,000th career strikeout by retiring Luke Voit of the San Diego Padres in the fourth inning on June 22. He became the 86th pitcher to reach this mark.[79]

  • George Kirby (SEA):
    • Started the game against the Washington Nationals on August 24 with 24 straight strikes, setting a Major League record for most consecutive strikes to start a game since 1988, when pitch-tracking began. He broke the record that was set by Joe Musgrove in 2018 with 21 straight strikes.[88]

  • Framber Valdez (HOU):
    • With his six-inning two runs allowed performance on September 18, Valdez set the Major League record for most consecutive single-season quality starts with 25, breaking the record that was set by Jacob deGrom in 2018.[90] The record for most consecutive quality starts is 26 held by deGrom (2018–19) and Bob Gibson (1967–68).[91] The streak was stopped on September 24 by the Baltimore Orioles as Valdez only went 5+13 innings giving up four earned runs.
  • Spencer Strider (ATL):
    • On September 18, Strider became the fastest pitcher in Major League history to amass 200 strikeouts in a season. Strider accomplished this feat in 130 innings, breaking the record set by Randy Johnson in 2001 in 130+23 innings.[92]
  • Max Scherzer (NYM):
    • Recorded his 200th career win on September 19 against the Milwaukee Brewers. He became the 120th player to reach this mark.[93] He threw six perfect innings in that game before being taken out; his fourth career game to begin with six perfect innings ties the expansion era record.[94]

  • Pittsburgh Pirates:
    • With their 1–0 win over the Cincinnati Reds on May 15, the Pirates became the sixth team since 1901 to win a game, despite being no-hit. However, the Reds only pitched eight innings, so it is not officially counted as a no-hitter by the Elias Sports Bureau.[104]

  • Minnesota Twins:
    • Turned the first 8–5 triple play in Major League history on July 4 against the Chicago White Sox. Byron Buxton caught a deep fly ball at the right-center field wall and threw it into the infield, where third baseman Gio Urshela put out a pair of baserunners.[110]
  • Robbie Grossman (ATL)/(DET):
    • His Major League record of 440 consecutive errorless games by a position player came to an end on July 10 against the Chicago White Sox. Grossman misplayed a fly ball in the eighth inning as he was charged with his first error in more than four years. The last error he committed was on June 13, 2018.[111]
  • Boston Red Sox:
    • Set a modern-era Major League record with a -47 run differential over a three-game span (July 16, 17, and 22).[112]

  • Shohei Ohtani (LAA):
    • Ohtani became the first player in Major League history ever with 10 pitching wins and 30 homers in the same season, reaching the latter mark on August 31 with a homer against the New York Yankees. This also made Ohtani the first Japanese-born player with multiple 30-homer seasons.[116]
    • In the Angels' final game of the season on October 5 against the Oakland Athletics, Ohtani became the first player in the World Series era to qualify for MLB hitting and pitching leaderboards in the same season.[117]
  • Adam Wainwright / Yadier Molina (STL):
    • On September 14, the battery of Wainwright and Molina started their 325th game in Major League history, setting a new all-time record passing the record that was previously held by Mickey Lolich and Bill Freehan of the Detroit Tigers.[118]

  • Cleveland Guardians:
    • Became the eighth team to qualify for the postseason as the youngest team in the league, the first to do so since the New York Mets in 1986. They also became the first team in Major League history to win a division or league title while having at least 16 rookies make their debut.[122]
  • Los Angeles Dodgers:
    • The Dodgers led the National League (and Major League) in runs scored (847) and fewest runs allowed (513). This was their fifth consecutive year to lead the National League in both runs scored and fewest runs allowed, setting a record as the only team in Major League history to lead their league in both for five consecutive seasons.[123]
  • Cleveland Guardians / Tampa Bay Rays:
    • Set a Major League postseason record with 39 combined strikeouts: Tampa Bay with 20 and Cleveland with 19 in Game 2 of the ALWCS on October 8. This game also set the record for the longest scoreless postseason game in Major League history, with the first (and only) run scored in the 15th inning.[124] Both records were surpassed a week later by the Astros and Mariners.
  • Houston Astros / Seattle Mariners:
    • Set a Major League postseason record with 42 combined strikeouts: Houston with 22 and Seattle with 20 in Game 3 of the ALDS on October 15. This game also set the record for the longest scoreless postseason game in Major League history, with the first (and only) run scored in the 18th inning.[125]
  • Nolan Arenado (STL):
    • Arenado won his 10th consecutive Gold Glove award and became the second player in Major League history to win ten consecutive awards to start their career. He joins Ichiro Suzuki, who first accomplished this feat from 2001 to 2010.[126]

The players' names and numbers are also printed in a new font that the team states "represents the unique characteristics of Cleveland with angular letters and numbers that mimic the architecture" of the Hope Memorial Bridge and its Guardians of Traffic statues. Other than that, the red, white, and blue color schemes on the regular home and road uniforms, the red alternate home uniform, and the blue alternate road uniform remain unchanged.[137]

Broadcasting rights edit

Television edit

National edit

The 2022 season marked the first season of multiple broadcasting deals in Major League Baseball in the United States, most of which run through the 2028 season:

For the postseason, ESPN networks held rights to the wild-card round; due to logistical concerns (especially with the fluctuating placements of teams in the standings during the final games of the regular season), the network employed remote production for the Padres/Mets and Mariners/Blue Jays series. The latter series employed a variant of the "enhanced world feed" model used in the 2020 season, with commentators and other selected staff on-site at Rogers Centre, but using video feeds from the Sportsnet production.[170]

Fox Sports held rights to the National League Division Series, Championship Series, and the World Series for the 23rd consecutive season; while TBS held rights to the American League Division Series and Championship Series. Spanish-language broadcasts of all ALDS and ALCS games aired on MLB Network.[163][171]

Local edit

  • Amazon Prime Video exclusively streams 21 Yankees games in the Yankees home market (except for the final game in the package, which was simulcast on both Prime Video and YES Network due to Aaron Judge's home run record). These games formerly were allocated to WPIX (which retains a sub-licensed 28-game Mets package from SNY).
  • Kevin Brown became the new primary play-by-play voice for the Baltimore Orioles on MASN, replacing Scott Garceau.
  • Kevin Frandsen became the new color commentator for the Washington Nationals on MASN, replacing F. P. Santangelo.
  • Dallas Braden became the new primary color commentator for the Oakland Athletics on NBC Sports California, replacing Ray Fosse.
  • In Canada, Sportsnet—the main Canadian rightsholder of MLB, and regional broadcaster of the co-owned Toronto Blue Jays—gained the rights to produce local broadcasts of postseason games in the event that the Blue Jays participate (as opposed to previous seasons, where it was required to simulcast the U.S. telecasts), featuring its main broadcast team of Buck Martinez and Pat Tabler (Sportsnet's alternate play-by-play announcer, Dan Shulman, had commitments to ESPN Radio's postseason coverage. This became moot for future seasons after Shulman announced that he would step down from ESPN Radio's coverage after the 2022 season to focus more on roles at Sportsnet).[172][173][174]
  • On June 1, 2022, NESN, the television home of the Boston Red Sox, launched NESN 360, an over-the-top subscription streaming platform that offers live streams of Red Sox games without a cable subscription.[175][176]
  • On June 23, 2022, Bally Sports soft-launched Bally Sports+, an over-the-top subscription streaming platform that offers live streams and market-specific video-on-demand content from its individual regional networks. At that time, Bally was able to negotiate the streaming rights for only five of the MLB teams it holds local TV rights to Detroit, Kansas City, Miami, Milwaukee, and Tampa.[177]

Radio edit

National edit

Local edit

  • On September 28, 2021, Dodgers radio announcer Jaime Jarrín announced his plans to retire after the 2022 season, his 64th as part of the Dodgers' Spanish radio broadcast team. Jarrín, who turned 86 that December, only worked Dodgers home games in 2022.[179]
  • On March 31, 2022, the New York Mets and Audacy announced that the team's games would be openly streamed on WCBS's Audacy app stream and the Mets website throughout the Mets' territory to make up for shortfalls in the team's radio network, which since 2020 has only consisted of WCBS and WPSL in Ft. Pierce, Florida, where its spring training site is based. Audacy will also produce a Spanish-language broadcast for WEPN, which will also be available through the Audacy app.[180]

Retirements edit

The following players retired during the 2022 season and before the start of the 2023 campaign:
