Yeah, for sure 2020-21 will be anomalies, but the trend is definitely moving that way.   There will be less than 50 pitchers this year with enough innings to be a qualified starter for ERA leaders, and were only 58 in 2019.   Only half the teams will have starters averaging 5IP every 5 days.   I don't know that I will keep interested in baseball if the NL is DHs and bullpenning takes over in 5 years.
The DH might actually extend pitcher innings.  In theory anyway.
