Cameron Selik with another solid outing [5.0 IP, 4 H, 2 BB, 5 SO, 5 GO/1 FO].  Adrian Sanchez is a guy to watch on Hagerstown.  Slick fielding second baseman, he made a few fine defensive plays today including the final out of the game.  He also scored the one and only run of the game to keep Hagerstown undefeated.
Found a nice tidbit of info on Selik. Intriguing

RHP Cameron Selik (22nd round-University of Kansas)

A little more on Selik than most of these other guys.

Sickels (5/25/2010): "He's a big guy at 6-3, 240 pounds, a "strong legs" type. His numbers are so-so this year, 4.66 ERA with a 68/30 K/BB in 85 innings, 86 hits. But he has a decent fastball at 88-92 MPH, and got some nasty break on his slider at times, in addition to mixing in a few changeups. He would profile as a bullpen back-ender at the higher levels, but someone in the later rounds could pick him up. Guys with worse arms have been successful pitchers.

The Kansan noted that Selik hit 95 mph in a start against Baylor in March. It looks like he's finally starting to come around from his Tommy John surgery in 2007 (a good article from KU's official site about his recovery can be found here. Another by the Kansan can be found here). Another interesting note about his selection: Selik was Stephen Strasburg's catcher growing up.
