Everyone listed will be in AA or higher, so Wood really isn't any closer to the majors except for Upton.
I thought the choice was done to Upton vs. Wood. Wood is closer to big leagues than Upton. Upton will start the year in Low A ball. He might get to High A by the end of the year. He will have at least one and as many as 2-3 more years before he is major league regular.
So yes most of the possible choices are at least in double A. But if the choice is down to Upton vs. Wood (which it should be) then Wood wins fantasy wise because he is farther along and will likely remain at short, while Upton is 2-4 years away and could be moved to the outfeild or third base before he reaches the show.
