I won't count anyone as an AAAA (minor league lifer) until they fail to produce in the majors when they are 29. Most people know 27 is a breakout break through age for a lot of players. Being in AAA at 26 is a good place for him to be, he's close. Besides he just turned 26 this month. Meaning he has a good chance to be in the bigs when he turns 27 in the middle of next year.
J.A. Happ is 25 and Randy Wells is 26 yet they are both front runners in the NL rookie of the year award.
Recent players that many regarded as AAAA players who have made big fantasy splashes.
Gerrett Jones (kind of so far)
Jeremy Guthrie (not so much this year, but a prime example of the rule of 27)
