Is there anyway to slow down the "he has to be in the majors in 2 years" factor?
I could be wrong, but I think the Reds will know by 2016 if he is ready for the big leagues full time or not.
Every player matures different, but that time table allows 2 full seasons above AA to see what he has. If the light does turn on for him he could be ready by next season some time.
