RH hitting outfielder that has shown excellent OBP skills throughout his career at all levels.  Has some pop, too.  SSS in majors last year didn't disappoint.  I don't know much about him, but he seems like he'd be a guy we'd like to look at.  Thoughts?

I'd take a flyer on him. I'm not sure he stays on the 40-man throughout the off season depending on who we add, but I'd throw him into the mix. He doesn't seem to have much experience in CF which is the major drawback as he's likely competing with Rickard for playing time though I guess he could be the other platoon option if we opt not to sign someone else more proven for that role. 

In any case, he makes more sense on the 40-man than some of the options.

Limited Power

Quote

Selsky is a right-handed hitter and thrower, age 26. As you may surmise from his background, he isn't a toolsy sort, lacking speed or significant raw power. He hits line drives, however, and is adept at drawing walks and getting on base. His tools limit him to the corner outfield spots and first base, as he lacks the quickness to play elsewhere on a regular basis. He catches what he gets to but won't wow you with his range.
