Cole Young

19-Year-Old ShortstopSS
2023 Fantasy Outlook
Selected by the Mariners with the No. 21 overall pick in last year's draft, Young is known for his pretty left-handed swing and potentially plus hit tool. The big question for fantasy/dynasty is whether there will be notable power or speed to go with the rest of the package. The 19-year-old shortstop hit .367/.423/.517 with two home runs, four steals and as many walks (eight) as strikeouts in 17 games across complex ball and Single-A after signing. He hits the ball to all fields and was a line-drive machine in high school. At 6-foot, 180 pounds, his frame is pretty filled out for a recent prep draftee, but he was tabbed as an above-average runner entering the draft. Young is a safer pick in first-year player drafts due to his hit tool, and he might be a good enough hitter to exceed power projections in his first full season, which would allow him to shoot up prospect rankings.

The Mariners have selected Young with the 21st overall pick in the 2022 first-year player draft.
ANALYSIS
Possessing one of the best hit tools from the prep ranks, Young's potentially plus hit tool will be his calling card. He should be able to stick at shortstop and is an above-average runner. It's unclear how much power he will tap into, but he will certainly be hit-over-power.
