I think the rule only protects one fielder for interference. The one best able to play the ball. Also, the rule is different on batted balls and thrown balls. That was at best a no call train wreck and theoretically even fielder obstruction to me.I think he might have been starting his jump to try and bat down the wild throw. So, Villar is called out for keeping Devers from getting the ground ball, but Travis is fine with knocking into a catcher trying to adjust to a bad throw.
Courtesy injury substitutes seems like the most no-brainer, time-saving, player-helping rule change MLB could make. Put the backup out there for the rest of the inning without it being a formal substitution, who has a problem with that?Ouch! Those groans were chilling.
