This "rush" vs. "not rushed" argument is by far the most stale on this board. It's pretty much impossible to prove either side of the argument, because there are too many cases in which players succeeded or did not succeed after long or short stints in the minors.
It's a convenient excuse. Josh Fields did not fail at the minor league level because he was rushed. He failed at the minor league level because he wasn't very good, and didn't have the skillset to play in the majors.
