2. What does DL stand for in Major League Baseball?

Disabled list

MLB fans use DL as shorthand for the Disabled List, which is a list players are put on when they are injured and unable to play. Placing a player on the DL allows a team to remove that player from their roster and add a healthy player instead.

Only the MLB uses the DL acronym. In other sports leagues, like the NFL and NHL, teams instead place players on injured reserve (IR). While some old-school fans may still use the DL acronym, the MLB officially changed the Disabled List's name to the Injured List in 2019. Therefore, you may now see fans refer to the DL as the IL.

Example

My two best players in fantasy are on the DL, FML
