The players union had already rejected several pace of play proposals, including installing a 20-second pitch clock and raising the bottom of strike zone to the top of the kneecap. Obviously, that was not put into place this year.

There will be less time between innings and pitching changes.
As for the timer, there are no automatic ball/strike penalties.
Umpires shall direct players and enforce the inning break and pitching change time limits on the field. Other than announcing there will not be any ball or strike penalties for violating these rules, Major League Baseball vaguely announced violators will be subject to "progressive discipline". Repeat offenders of the rule could be subject to a fine, although there won't be any punishment for violating the rule during a game.
