Major League Baseball will be renaming the disabled list as the “injured list,” according to Jeff Passan of ESPN.

The change is being made due to concerns over the word “disabled” being misconstrued as an injury disability with injuries or an inability to play.

MLB and the players’ union will also discuss potential changes to the actual usage to combat manipulation of the list, among other issues.
