The real question is will he be able to make the transition to AAA and ML pitching. I don't think it's set in stone that if you dominate in A and AA that you will in the majors. By the same token, I don't think true talent is always going to struggle or hover around the league average. Some may get better as they advance and some hit their peak in A or AA.
Nothing's set in stone, but what you "see" him as being is a rarity. FWIW, I think the possibility of him producing the sort of numbers you projected in AA is reason enough to promote him.
