Mat Latos and Will Inman, two of the best pitching prospects in the San Diego organization, each moved up a level, according to Corey Brock of MLB.com.
Latos jumped from Low-A Fort Wayne directly to Double-A San Antonio, skipping High-A entirely. That's what a 3-0 record, 0.36 ERA will do for you.
Inman moved to Triple-A Portland after posting a 4-1 record and 3.05 ERA in San Antonio.
Why does this matter? Because both pitchers are candidates to replace Jake Peavy in the rotation should the Padres decide to move him. San Diego doesn't look like it needs to aggressively promote in order to help with the 2009 pennant chase, after all.
