He's young (20), throws 99mph bullets, and has been dominant so far...
...in 2 years of A ball!
Obviously the talent and potential are there, but we're talking about a kid with little A ball experience right now. You're looking at 3 years from now best before he plays a ML game (2015?), IF he can stay healthy and perform well throughout AA, AAA, etc.
He's got a long way to go.

Nobody really can know what is or isn't a "rush" at this point. His development might progress much faster than expected, or he might progress much slower that expected.
If he's ready to be in the rotation at the start of 2015, then I'd be happy with that. I've seen projections of 2014 - I assume they mean toward the middle - end of 2014.
Maybe a September call up end of 2014, and in the rotation in 2015. We shall see....
Or who knows, maybe Sandy if flips him + another prospect to get some outfielders..????
He seems to be a good one though. Plus pitches.
My point is we know nothing about him other than what he's accomplished in under 200IP at a single A level. There are people here talking about him like he's the next coming of Seaver. I would have preferred ML ready or near ML ready prospects and some help in other areas. He's a prospect with a long way to go.
Still need: outfielder, bullpen, 2B?, etc.
