TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Major League Baseball has a new rule that allows interpreters to join managers and coaches on the mound when pitchers aren't fluent in English.

Even though it has already been used in spring training, the rule might still need some tweaking.

Asian players, like Yu Darvish, are routinely provided translators by their teams. But Latino players rarely receive the same benefit.

Most baseball teams don't have a full-time Latino translator. New York Yankees closer Mariano Rivera is among the players who say a teammate or coach should be permitted to fill that role if needed.

Currently, only people who are employed full time by teams as interpreters are allowed on the field.
