I think the winners of the rise in three true outcomes are middle relievers. TTO increases pitch counts, leading to shorter outings from starters and the need for more and more relief pitchers. The inverse is that the losers of this movement are 5th outfielders/3rd catchers.
Excellent point, this and pitch counts are why we are seeing 13 man pitching staffs and benches consisting of one catcher and two multi position utility players. This is also why I frequently call for the expansion of rosters to 28.
