Chris Young Replaces Joe Torre as MLB Disciplinarian
Major League Baseball will have a new disciplinarian. Hall of Famer Joe Torre is shifting to a role as special assistant to the commissioner. Torre had headed baseball operations at the commissioner's office since 2011. Former pitcher Chris Young will replace Torre as the person to decide suspensions and fines for on-field matters, such as intentionally hitting batters, charging the mound and fights. Torre turns 80 in July and is expected to travel less during the season.
