RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Kevin Young.

2003

Young's playing time will be sharply reduced by the Pirates' acquisition of Randall Simon. That will help Young's average - he just can't hit right-handers any more - and hurt everything else, as he'll be on the wrong side of a platoon and get just 200-250 at-bats.
