Andrew Young
27-Year-Old Second Baseman2B
Arizona Diamondbacks AAA
2021 Fantasy Outlook
A secondary piece in the Diamondbacks' return for Paul Goldschmidt, Young was up-and-down with Arizona in 2020, coming to the plate 34 times across 12 games before a broken hamate bone ended his season. It's too small of a sample to have any major takeaways, but it was good to see Young was taking some walks (14.7 BB%), something he will need to do at least a little bit of as the strikeout rate may hover around 25-30% against top-level pitching. Young has power, but it is not truly a plus tool, and with marginal speed, his ceiling looks to be capped as a utility player. He played second base (four games), third base (three games) and left field (once) in his debut. Read Past Outlooks

Young was optioned to Triple-A Reno on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
The 27-year-old is hitless in 16 at-bats over his past 10 appearances, and he'll head to Triple-A with Christian Walker (oblique) returning from the injured list. Young has a .206/.357/.588 slash line with four home runs in 42 plate appearances this season.

2020 Fantasy Outlook
Part of the haul from the Cardinals in the Paul Goldschmidt trade, Young is knocking on the door in the desert with a chance to break camp with the Diamondbacks. The club added Young to the 40-man roster to protect him from the Rule 5 draft -- a good sign Arizona has plans for him. Young was advanced to Triple-A Reno halfway through the season where he slashed an impressive .280/.373/.611, albeit in the high offense landscape of the Pacific Coast League. Still, Young's ability to play second, third and shortstop should earn him a long look in the Cactus League. The righty-swinging infielder lacks plate patience but makes good contact. He has limited speed, so he'll need to tap into his power to be a fantasy asset. Monitor Young in the spring. If he impresses early, he's an intriguing end-game target in NL-only, adding flexibility to a fantasy roster, especially those with five game eligibility requirements.
