No more fakes.
Pitchers who fake throws to third this year, then throw to first, instead will be called for a balk.
The rule was voted on at an owners' meeting a few weeks ago.

"Max (Scherzer)," said catcher Alex Avila. "He loves that move. There's not even anyone who's a close second."
Rick Porcello might have been a distant second, though.
