I interpreted it as, "If he gets off to a fast start, he'll be promoted shortly."
For the record, by fast start, Im not talking 4 or 5 games.
I mean a month or so.
Im generally on the side of not fast tracking kids either, especially at the lower levels. I think once guys get to the higher levels they can move quicker, but at the lower levels, let them take their time.
But if a kid rakes and has the pedigree to support moving quicker than usual, by all means, go for it. I think Goodwin applies. He was a stud high school prospect, played two years at the college level, including the Cape Cod League.
If he's doing very well after 25 games or so, I see no reason to hold him back. Im not talking about a month at each stop, but promoting him to Potomac for the rest of the year isn't that big of a rush IMO.
