Selsky will be an interesting player to watch this season in light of his exceptional second half in a great hitter's environment. He is a good all-around ballplayer but not exceptional in any area. Comparisons to Heisey as a hitter may be valid but I do not think they are similar players defensively. Selsky has solid but not exceptional baseball skills in the outfield but he is nowhere near as athletic as Heisey. Not even close.
I had Rogers in my Top 15 prospects, so I am on board that train, so to speak. Needs a third pitch, but the two he has are ones I really like, even as a starter.
Not so sure with Lutz. Still really aggressive at the plate. Still needs some work in left. If he can't play left, he can't hit enough to be a first baseman.
I am also on the Romano train. I really liked the little bit I had a chance to see of him this year. I don't think this will be his breakout year, but I think he could be someone to really talk about one day.
