I'm not saying he can't blossom, but given Werth and Harper, Goodwin's projection, and Span's ridiculously cheap contract for the next 2 years and the affordable option, there really isn't a place for Hood to start here until 2016 /2017 even if he meets his high end projection. 

I could see Bernie beginning to get expensive when you have a pre-arb 4th outfielder with pop, so I could see Hood maybe taking that role when he is 25 or 26, or I could see perhaps Bernie and Hood being the backups to Harper, Werth, and the 2015 CF (Span?  Goodwin?).  It is unreasonable to project him as displacing a corner outfielder for until maybe the tail end of Werth's contract (2017).
