OK well he's near his innings cap for this season and still has room to improve where he is. We all know there is going to be some sort of adjustment period when he does get that promotion. That is natural. Do you want him getting batted around roughly with the season nearing it's end and his arm likely tiring? I do not. I would rather him facing a tougher level of competition with a fresher arm. I know I don't want him frustrated at season's end for a few starts trying to do things he's not ready for. I also would like to see him get through starts at AA more efficiently before he's promoted. He's done well as the season has gone on as far as that goes. I just think that showing some restraint is what is needed on the prospect promotion curve. Another thing to consider with Wright is that he may well end up being the lone player out of his draft class that isn't a complete wash. Are you willing to risk that?
