Has anyone seen a timetable on Wood's minor league promotions yet? He is definitely young and I am sure they want him to work on his curveball, but could anyone see him getting to Sarasota anytime soon?

When you've got pitchers as young and talented as Travis Wood and Homer Bailey, you have to resist the temptation to move them before they're ready. These guys could be very special, but bumping them before they're ready does nothing but hurt the pitcher in the long run.

To answer your question, I'd give him at the very least until the middle of the season, and only then if his numbers are flat dominate again.
