(I assume Jax is a 1st LT, although going thru the Academy he could be a CPT...does anyone know?)

 

He would still out as a 2ndLt coming from the academy.  He may have enough time in now to be a 1stLt, but he definitely isn't a Captain yet.

Will some of the newcomers be added to the top 20 rundown at some point?

If he was Army, I would say right around year 3(ish) he would be looking at his O-3 (CPT), but I can't really speak for the Chair Force's timeline for officers (can't imagine it's too much different though).

With only 6 walks allowed in 60 innings, I hope someone can teach Jax some control soon. Over his last 5 starts he has averaged better than a strikeout per inning.

I've thought for a while now Jax had a real chance to be a nice pitcher. Obviously the Twins thought the same thing. Age should not be held against him because his situation is so unique. Where he ranks at the end of this year may not fully reflect his potential. Mid 2019 projections may be more accurate.
