I would expect the number of "minor injuries" to increase as a way to subvert that type of rule. There's no way they could make a pitcher stay in there if he said his arm felt funny.
If an injury, they just give up IBB until the 3 batter requirement is fulfilled. I'm not if favor of a DH for pitchers, they can only be hit for by a pinch hitter. But I am in favor of a designated defensive player and a designated hitter in his spot in the line-up, and the DF could pinch run in 5 of the 9 innings and each extra inning. This would allow us to enjoy the great fielding and baserunning skills of those that are hitting challenged. After Sept. 1st you can have as many as you want on the roster, but only 22 are allowed on the line-up card for each game.
