If he progresses at an even pace, I'd think Yorman would be in the OF by 2013 (possible a debut in late 2012). I'd hope that Puckett would be in the mix at 2B too - hopefully with solid power numbers.
I agree with Doug that this is highly unlikely. Yorman is very young and still raw. He has 4 levels left to go, so saying he could make it to the majors by 2013 assumes he can succeed at 2 levels in both 2011 and 2012. That's optimism bordering on delusional, given that this is an 18-year old Venezuelan who's going to have language/culture adjustments to make at each of his minor league stops.If he progresses at an even pace, I'd think Yorman would be in the OF by 2013 (possible a debut in late 2012).

Did someone from RZ just tweet Fay about this?
johnfayman RT @stevenortlieb: Any discussion about trying Grandal at another position in order to keep both him and Mesoraco? #Reds//No. Long way to go
Most of the defensive reviews I've seen suggest that while Mes has the better arm and footwork, Grandal is a much better receiver and game manager. Here's one idea... Mes to 3B.
Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.
