Timing play signal in MLB

Are MLB umpires taught to give the timing play signal to each other with 2 outs and RISP. In the Was/LAD game LAD had a runners on 2nd and 3rd with a ground ball to F5 who knocked it down and tagged the approaching runner when the lead runner was 2 steps from home. PU didn't even realize a time play was happening and allowed Mattingly to talk him into allowing the run. It wasn't a blown call as much as PU was not even aware of his responsibility on the play. Even a decent HS crew would never make such a stupid mistake.
