I kinda disagree with this actually. Not the procedure, but the idea of installing some sort of injury clause rule.
The problem is, if you put in something like this, how do you decide exactly which injuries would qualify a player to be subject to this rule? Is it "out for the year?", because at this point, Nathan is not considered definitely out for the season. There simply is no way to prevent an owner from using the most trivial injury to manipulate his roster after he has already seen his competition's keeper lists. It isn't like there is a Disabled List in spring training, so the only indicator of how long a player may miss is going to be estimates in the media.
The best rule change may be to move the keeper date closer to the draft, but that is about all that I see being feasible. Injuries happen, and you just have to live with them sometimes.
