They're nothing alike.
Depends on your definition of Michael Young. The Michael Young of 2004-2006? No, too high of a batting average. Of the last few years? Not enough power.
I guess I'd compare Beckham to Khalil Greene (road version), but with a little more patience and a little less pop. I think he'd probably be an .800 OPS middle infielder if he progresses well.
