New Chris Young!!!

rsenal: fastball (88-92 MPH), slider, changeup

Pros: Lots of arm side run on his fastball, ability to get ground balls

Cons: Low velocity for a 6’8 frame, not a strikeout pitcher

Present: Selmer’s ability to get ground balls makes him a very appealing bullpen arm, and he has demonstrated his versatility, as a guy who has the stamina to pitch multiple innings. The ground balls are a product of his low arm angle, which makes the ball dip down and in on a right handed batter. While he doesn’t throw as hard as his height suggests, a low 90s fastball with movement is better than a straight fastball at 96. Selmer isn’t a guy who has scouts flocking to the stadium, but I think his size is an intangible that will convince a team to take a flyer on him in the later rounds, and hope that they can help him develop more strikeout stuff, or turn him into the more prototypical hard throwing right hander.

Lewis: Selmer is every bit of the listed 6’8’’ frame, and has plenty of room to fill out his currently lanky frame, which certainly should have scouts salivating. Selmer’s mechanics are a bit unorthodox, he does not really utilize his lower body in his delivery, and still manages to throw 88-91 from a cross-fire delivery with solid command living at the knees for the most part. He screams a mechanical overhaul and work in progress, but his frame, ability to command the zone, and present velocity should inspire professional teams to give this kid a look.

88-92 looks like 98 which is like 94 from a lefty so basically it's like we picked a lefty who throws 95(round up) wooooooooooooo

"Sinker's my best pitch, it's always been my best pitch since I've been here, getting weak ground ball contact," Selmer said. "I developed a slider. The changeup has been OK. [Hitters] are not sitting on one pitch. I have other pitches to get in."
