Fair enough, but if he were to fall behind in terms of his age versus his level he could advance multiple levels in one year. The Reds might not skip a level, but moving up from Rookie, A to high A in one year...that I could see (or A > A+ > AA)(A+ > AA > AAA). I just don't see it as a big problem. I'd be more concerned with how they introduce him into the system in the first place. And I'd shy away from Dayton for a HS kid if I had the choice. At least for a little while.
