While in general the "show me something in AA before I get excited" is a prudent rule, you can't ignore that folks who get paid to evaluate players just rated Wood #11 in all baseball.  To the extent he's at low level and that generates uncertainty, you can also say his ceiling has to be pretty darn high to be ranked above AA/AAA guys.

If Aaron Judge had hit 35 homers last year instead of 62, Wood would be ranked #75. 

Baseball people are dumb and visually obsessed on lazy comps.  Wood's a 6'7" corner outfielder with fringe CF potential and a lot of power. Therefore in pea-brain land he's more than infinitesimally likely to actually be Aaron Judge.
