MLB, Players Association adopt new protocols regarding concussions | MLB.com: News

Major League Baseball and the Major League Baseball Players Association adopted a new series of protocols under the new joint policy regarding concussions, including the creation of a seven-day disabled list.

A committee of experts created the policy, which will oversee the manner in which concussions are diagnosed initially and will be used to determine when players and umpires can return to the field following a concussion. The new policy goes into effect on Opening Day.
