The athletic 6-foot-3, 180-pound Young was impressive all-around, but no doubt he should be one of the heaviest recruited left-handed pitching prospects in the state. Young also impressed with his changeup, 79-82 mph, that displayed late fade. Young's 74-75 mph curveball also displayed excellent action. Young, who ran a 7.02 60, showed off his arm strength from the outfield (86 mph) and took an excellent round of BP. The 6-foot-2, 180-pound left-hander earned the top prospect of the event, and in the process cemented himself as a high-level, top 10 player in the Class of 2012. Young comes from a 3/4 arm slot with a clean arm action and a fastball that sat 87-88 mph with late arm-side run. Young displayed a dynamic core and lower half to go with good rhythm and tempo throughout his mechanics. Beyond his fastball, Young really impressed with his secondary pitches. His 76-78 mph changeup had late downward action. Young's curveball also projects to be a plus pitch at the next level; it demonstrated tight, late, hard break. Strong-armed athlete should emerge as one of the premier left-handers in the state.
