2019-07-22 15:00:00 (link to chat)How likely is Sam Selman to be promoted when Will Smith is traded and do you see late-inning potential in him or is he a 6-7 inning guy?
(Trade from Will Smith)
Ah, back to the Bizarro-Giants. Selman is one step away and has handled the MLB ball extremely well at Triple-A. I don't see why they wouldn't give him a shot if the space in the bullpen opens up. Whether it will or not is a different question - it's easy to make the case that Smith, Watson and Dyson could all be gone by the deadline and the whole bullpen hierarchy will be open for anyone to seize a job, but that case isn't as easy to make as it was a month ago. (Darius Austin)
2014-07-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)How strong is the Royals crop of young arms including Kyle Zimmer, Miguel Almonte, Jason Adam, Christian Binford, Sam Selman, and new acquisitions Brandon Finnegan and Foster Griffin? BTW, what can you tell me about Selman as he doesn't seem to get as much press as the others? Cheers
(LoyalRoyal from Kansas)
it's very strong. I really like Almonte and believe Adam will continue to progress. I like Finnegan quite a bit too. if Zimmer could prove healthy, then the crop would be even stronger. Given the control problems, I am not convinced Selman is a starter long term, and that's the biggest reason you don't hear more about him nationally. (Mark Anderson)
