Player Notes
Selsky has been a steady player in his climb through the Reds’ system since signing out of Arizona, where he played with his organization-mate and Louisville teammate Seth Mejias-Breen. In 2015 with the Bats, Selsky batted .317 in 51 games, hitting two homers and driving in 29 runs while stealing three bases. In 2014, between Louisville and Pensacola (Double-A), he hit a combined .275 with two homers, 32 RBIs and two steals along with 15 doubles. He doesn’t profile offensively as a full-time outfielder, lacking the key tools of power or speed, but provides a steady bat off the bench if needed.
