RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Sam Selman.
Selman began his 2014 season with Double-A Northwest Arkansas on a quest to improve the control issues that plagued him in 2013, when led the Class A Carolina League with 85 free passes. The southpaw was relatively successful in this endeavor, dropping his BB/9 from 6.1 to 4.7, though he still has plenty of work to do. Inconsistencies in Selman's delivery from his 6-foot-3 frame have been partially to blame, but if he can correct those control problems, he may be able to get to the big leagues in his age-24 season. He finished 2014 at Triple-A Omaha, where he'll likely begin the 2015 campaign, and if Selman does get the call, look for him to serve as an emergency back-end rotation option or in middle relief. He was actually far more successful in relief at the Double-A level, posting a 1.62 ERA in 16.2 innings, as opposed to a 4.36 mark in 76.1 innings as a starter.
