Scouting Report

The underclass standout on the 2017 USA Baseball 18U team, Young is one of the more polished defensive middle infielders of the class. He also impressed with his bat last year against older competition in Thunder Bay, Canada, as Team USA won gold in the World Baseball Softball Confederation World Cup. A switch-hitter, Young had something of a disappointing summer at the plate, routinely rolling over on balls to the right side of the infield, although he has shown the ability to spray hard line drives around the field. A plus runner, Young has outstanding body control defensively and can play both shortstop and second base with aplomb. He has terrific footwork around the bag on double plays from both positions, and he has a strong, accurate arm and a fast exchange. The Vanderbilt commit isn’t overflowing with tools, but he’s a solid all-around player with an impressive baseball IQ.
