INDIAN WELLS, Calif. (AP) -- Major League Baseball is considering a broader expansion of video review for umpires. Instant replay in baseball began in August 2008 and has been limited to checking whether potential home runs were fair or cleared over fences. Major League Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig has been saying since early 2011 he wants to expand it to two additional types of calls, trap plays and fair or foul balls. Baseball is also considering a change to its longtime rule allowing active rosters to expand from 25 to 40 from Sept. 1 through the rest of the regular season.
