That is not what his coaches say at AA. While they believe he is the "real deal", the areas where he still needs work is with his change-up and breaking ball (especially vs lefties).
I believe they'll start him at AAA, and go from there.
But success at AA, and vs AA hitting is not a guarantee of success vs ML level hitting. Big difference IMO.
He'll be up here soon enough.
