Young staying hot in pro ball

For the second month in a row, local baseball star Jared Young has been named minor league player of the month in the Chicago Cubs organization.

Young is currently an infielder for the Myrtle Beach Pelicans, the Class A-Advanced affiliate of the Cubs. July was his first month with the Pelicans, after a promotion from the Class A South Bend Cubs.

In 27 games last month (six with South Bend, 21 with Myrtle Beach), Young had a .350 batting average, with four home runs, four doubles and 17 RBIs. He also reached base in all 27 contests. With South Bend, he posted a .455 batting average (10-for-22) and with the Pelicans he hit .321 (25-for-78).

In June, with South Bend exclusively, Young had a .340 average with five homers and 27 RBIs in 27 games.

This is Young's first full season of professional baseball. He was drafted by the Cubs in June 2017 after a stellar season with the Old Dominion University Monarchs. The Cubs chose him in the 15th round, 465th overall, and he finished that season with the Eugene Emeralds.
