It's confirmed. After years of debates about whether the National League should have a designated hitter, it will finally be implemented for the shortened 2020 season. Whether it stays for good remains to be seen but having a designated hitter avoids the usual automatic out that occurs when the pitcher hits. The DH gives National League team extra flexibility in their lineup and in the field and allows the pitcher to focus solely on pitching. A typical DH is usually a player that has power and can bring in runs. Here is who each team will most likely have as their primary DH.

1

Atlanta Braves- Austin Riley

In his rookie year which he appeared in 80 games, he slashed .226/.279/.471 with 18 HR.

2

Miami Marlins- Jesus Aguilar, Garrett Cooper or Brian Anderson

The Marlins have three different players that they could find themselves just being used as a hitter. If Don Mattingly decides Aguilar should be the primary DH, Cooper will find himself playing first and vice versa. Meanwhile, Anderson could be the DH as Jonathan Villar is expected to be the starting third baseman.
