Ehlers to the DL

The Thunder have placed Cody Ehlers on the disabled list with a sore right elbow, retroactive to yesterday. Carlos Mendoza came off the DL to take his spot on the roster.

The typical Double-A salary is somewhere around $2,000-$2,500 a month. If a player was a very high draft pick and got a signing bonus to match, they may earn considerably more than that. But that's the starting point for players at this level.

If they're on the Yankees' 40-man roster, their salary increases even more for however long they're on there. If they get called up to the major leagues, they earn at least the major league minimum ($380,000 a year), prorated for the amount of time they're up there.
