Giants go with tall hurler Young in 13th round

The Giants claimed another pitching prospect and likely reliever in the 13th round of the First-Year Player Draft with Villanova junior Pat Young.

Since he graduated from College Park High School in The Woodlands, Texas, in 2010, Young has filled out his 6-foot-5, 200-pound frame and become more consistent with his delivery. As a result, Young, who was undrafted out of high school, has caught the attention of scouts.

Young pairs his low-90s fastball with a slider. He also throws a changeup, but rarely shows it. Young's high-effort delivery and lack of a third pitch will likely make him a reliever as a professional. He pitched out of the bullpen in the Cape Cod League last summer and excelled in the role.

He went 2-8 with a 4.81 ERA in 2013, as batters recorded a .284 average against him this season. Young struck out 76 compared to 34 walks in 82 1/3 innings.
