Keeping the starters fresher later in the game?  The use of an "opener" to pitch the first 1 or 2 innings.

Well they’ve done it all year and had a better season than expected, so we’ll see more of it.

Research has shown that most of the runs scored against a pitcher happen the 2nd or 3rd time through the lineup. The first time through the lineup, the pitcher typically gets outs and no runs are scored against him. I want to see a team have a pitching rotation where each pitcher only faces a maximum of 9 batters so that none of the batters ever face the pitcher a second time in the game.
