I doubt it.
It's not like he sucked at AA, he just doesn't have the power to put up a pretty OPS. His OBP (356) was plenty good to merit a promotion. IMO, he projects very nicely as a plus glove off the bench who can pinch run or pinch hit with the bases empty. You don't want him playing every day or hitting with runners on base, but he can be very successful in a limited role.
