Starting Pitchers
If you give Young a first pitch fastball that touches the strike-zone, I hope you enjoy watching Young trot the bases. Young’s best quality is sometimes his biggest flaw. Young is a free-swinger that doesn’t walk much and can pile up strike-outs from time to time. He is also a horrible fielder that takes horrible routes to the ball and makes you un-easy ever-time a pop fly comes his way. But he does have an outstanding throwing arm, and if you try to over-power him with fastballs, you will not succeed.
