The biggest mistake the Reds can make with him is not bringing him up too late, but bringing him up before he's ready.
Thus far, his most advanced experience has been 57 games at the AA level. He did very well at Pensacola, but Pensacola ain't every day in the National League. Pensacola isn't even AAA.
Based on his track record, I see an excellent player with a bright future. I also see a very slim amount of evidence that he's ready to start in the major leagues.
Thank you....
