PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. (AP) — Baseball's new guidelines regarding home plate collisions will be out on Monday.

MLB executive vice president Joe Torre made the revelation Sunday after wrapping up a series of meetings to discuss expanded replay with the 15 teams that conduct spring training in Florida.

Torre is optimistic the replay system that debuts this season will function as intended, helping umpires get potential game-changing calls correct while not disrupting the rhythm of play with lengthy delays.

The former New York Yankees manager did not provide specifics about the plate-collision rule except to say baseball wants to curb intentional contact initiated by base runners.
