That's really impressive.  The jump from A ball to AA is arguably a bigger jump than from AA to AAA, which is oftentimes little more than finishing school for top prospects if they even go there at all.  We'll see if the league adjusts to him at all but that's a very promising start.  He may be ready for his first cup of coffee early next season.
I wonder if the Nats might try a Taylor / Goodwin

at the start of the year in left (or CF), run it for a couple months, and, if it is in any way short of what they want or if Robles kicks the door in, bring him up after the ASB.  1st injury to an outfielder, etc...  Would be less expensive than bringing in JD Martinez or some other big corner bat.
