Selsky signed a minor-league contract with the Reds on Monday, Evan Drellich of NBC Sports Boston reports. Selsky will serve as organizational depth for the Reds in 2018. He broke camp with the Red Sox in 2017, though he wound up making just eight appearances (going 1-for-9 with five strikeouts) before being sent back to Triple-A Pawtucket, where he finished out the season hitting .215/.270/.360 across 79 games.
Selsky was released by the Red Sox on Sunday, Chris Cotillo of SB Nation reports. Selsky was assigned to minor-league camp in March and mostly spent 2017 at Triple-A Pawtucket, though he made eight appearances with Boston. The 28-year-old will look to catch on as depth for another organization.
The Red Sox reassigned Selsky to their minor-league camp Sunday. Selsky made eight appearances with the big club in 2017 but otherwise spent most of the campaign at Triple-A Pawtucket, where he slashed .215/.270/.360 across 322 plate appearances. An assignment back to Pawtucket presumably awaits Selsky again, with any promotion the 28-year-old might receive to the majors likely coming as a result of his dependable glove rather than because of anything he offers at the dish.
Selsky will be returning to the Red Sox on a minor-league deal, Jon Heyman of FanRagSports.com reports. Selsky has appeared in 32 major-league games over the past two years with Cincinnati and Boston, recording a .283/.303/.376 batting line with two home runs. He hit just .215/.270/.360 in 79 games for Triple-A Pawtucket last year. He's unlikely to be anything other than organizational depth for the Red Sox.
Selsky was outrighted to Triple-A Pawtucket on Tuesday, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports. Selsky was designated for assignment last week to clear room on the roster for the acquisition of Rajai Davis. After passing through waivers untouched, Selsky will report back to Pawtucket, where he'll continue to serve as organizational depth. The 28-year-old is hitting .215/.270/.360 with 11 homers in 79 games at Triple-A this season.
