Here is the snippet on Young:

9. Chris Young, of, Peoria Saguaros (White Sox)

Young was one of the most athletic players in the Fall League, and possesses huge raw power with speed and a plus arm. He struggled with recognizing pitches at times, however, leading to bunches of strikeouts.

Plate discipline is the key to Young’s development. He struggles particularly with breaking balls, and tends to drag his hands behind his body with a pronounced drift. That opened him up to offspeed stuff away and quality fastballs over the inner part of the plate. Young is a plus defender in center field, running good routes with excellent instincts and quickness.
Routes? Who cares about those?

First time I've ever seen his arm mentioned as "plus". He has improved it a lot, but I don't know if I'd go that far just yet. Definite average to above average arm at this point though.
