Major League Baseball is set to announce new rules changes to speed up the pace of play this season.

They will include a 30-second clock for mound visits and shortening the time between half-innings from two minutes and 25 seconds to two minutes and five seconds, Yahoo Sports reports.

Sources: There will be a timed 30-second clock for pitcher mound visits from managers/coaches that starts immediately when they exit dugout.

In addition to 30-second mound-visit clock, between-innings clock going from 2:25 to 2:05. MLB is trying to shave game time with easy fixes.

In addition, the league announced that the always controversial "in the neighborhood" play now will be reviewable and revised its rules on takeout slides. Baserunners now are banned from rolling blocks on infielders.
