Frederick Has Become A Team To Watch

I really think it's fine moving up Wright. It's all about the challenge in my opinion. He is a guy out of college, and should be able to learn on the fly more so than a HS pitcher. And he was indeed dominating for the most part. There are obviously things he needs to work on and they know that.

If he struggles in AA, oh well. He can start there next year and have a jump start. Just how I personally see it. I'm not sure about rushing him for a RP though. I wouldn't exactly like that to be honest.

AA seems to be the biggest hurdle in the minor leagues. If Wright can average seven innings or more per start at that level then he should be given a meaningful opportunity as a starter.
