Wow I didn't realize Bill James Handbook and ZIPS were even higher on Young than Prospectus. Can't miss?

I liken him to a Mike Cameron, fantasy wise.
I think Young if given 500 AB's this year will easily go 20/20 with decent team stats, but I would be worried about that average. That average may be what prevents him from getting those AB's this season. If he did not get drafted in your league, I would let waivers clear then pick him up. Tankersly, I would wait to make sure he has the gig first.

i guess i'll target him in 2015 :-b

that said, i agree with most here. i wouldn't use a waiver claim on him, because i doubt he hits much over .250

there are talks of young losing leadoff spot in favor of drew because of young's dismal spring. he's currently under the mendoza line i think.

Are you kidding? He's cut down his K rate as he advanced. He's never repeated a level and his minor league numbers are great considering he was always younger than Cameron.

I agree. Last year in AAA, he 51% of his hits were XBHs. Other than his average, which I see around .260, I'll be drafting him in many leagues. Especially in leagues that require specific OF cats (LF/CF/RF), he has tremendous upside as a CF.

Is he still worth holding onto in 12 team leagues if he doesn't lead off? I'm thinking of cutting ties for another sleeper, say Victorino or Hart.

I'd rank Young, Hart and Victorino in that order.
