RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Madison Younginer.
Younginer repeated at Short-Season Lowell in 2011, still dogged by command issues stemming from an inconsistent delivery. He's a bit robotic in his delivery and needs to repeat it more consistently and find his arm slot. This results in high walk and contact rates and can lead to big innings. His changeup has developed nicely, but the curve still needs work. Repeating his delivery and reducing his walks are what we're looking for from Younginer, most likely at Low-A Greenville.
Younginer, 20, was used as a starter at Short-Season Lowell, but did not get a lot of innings after being used primarily as a reliever in high school. His fastball reaches the mid-90s, but he needs to command it better and find consistency in his release point. He's likely to open the 2011 season for Low-A Greenville, where he'll work on finding more consistency in his delivery, harnessing his fastball command (reducing walks) and honing his secondary offerings.
Younginer, 19, is raw and needs to iron out his mechanics, but he brings an impressive array of pitches. He has a mid-90s fastball (that tops out at 97mph) with a two-seamer that has downward action. Younginer also features a mid-70s curveball and is developing a changeup. He tries to overpower hitters with his velocity, but needs to harness his command. Having pitched primarily as a reliever in his senior year in high school, he's going to need some tutoring as a starter and innings. We expect a start at extended spring training followed by a move to Short-Season Lowell.
