Selsky hit very well. But when you look at it, his power went way up in a league that is known to boost power to the extreme and he had a .402 BABIP with the Blaze. Walk rate was solid. Strikeout rate was solid.
End of the day, you have to ask, which is more likely: That a late round draft pick turned into a superstar right as he entered the California League, or that he was more likely the guy who was average-ish in Dayton in the first half of that season?
My guess is, most people feel that he is more of that second guy than that first guy.
