    Young was teammates with Rice righthander John Simms in high school in suburban Houston, and crosstown rivals with Pirates righthander Jameson Taillon and Royals righty Bryan Brickhouse. Of his 41 appearances for Villanova, 33 have been starts, but his future is in the bullpen because he has just two pitches, his delivery has effort and he throws from a lower slot. He has a big frame at 6-foot-7, 220 pounds and a heavy fastball that sits in the low 90s, touching 94-95 mph. His slider can be average, though it isn't an out pitch and his changeup is a non-factor. He was 1-8, 4.84 in 74 innings this season with 71 strikeouts, 34 walks and 86 hits allowed.
