Default Putting on Weight...When can I see some Strength Increase?

I've recently went from 190lbs to 200lbs in over a 2 month period. My lifts have gone up...Previous PR on clean was 252lbs (December) that went up 264lbs (Jan) and I PRd 274lbs last week. Is this a good progression with the weight gain. I'm still a noob at this...lol. My snatch and jerks are limited due to my rotator cuff injury. I've been slowly able to do light weight on both.

I hope I don't sound like some spoiled kid....I know that weight gain will help strength gains...but for the extra 10lbs I was expecting more I guess.

*title should say .....When can I see some Strength Gains...lol

I am not sure what you're asking. You start off by saying you've got some pretty good gains, and then ask when you'll start seeing gains.

If your sinclair at this weight is higher than when you were lighter, then you improved.
