Ryan Zimmerman is another.
Hanley Ramirez.
M. Tejada played 1 game in AAA.

It's not really that unusual. AA is considered the real proving ground in the minors. AAA is mostly filled with major leage retreads who can be called up in case of injury.

Etc.

Just to name some of the younger players that have made the jump. Like someone said it isn't that uncommon for the very good prospects.
