What’s All This Talk About a Health Insurance Crisis?

Note: The Dodger Thoughts blog has moved to the Los Angeles Times.

Although Derek Thompson came to the Dodgers in the Rule 5 draft, he was probably destined to be redirected to Cleveland and the minors. However, now he is out for the season with a torn medial collateral ligament.

As a result, he will spend the year on the Dodgers’ major league roster via the 60-day disabled list. And he will earn a major-league salary of $300,000 – six times what he would have earned in the minors.

Yes, injuries are painful and scary. But, especially with how effective Tommy John surgery has become, could an injury come at a more propitious time for a borderline player?
