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.
Selsky was designated for assignment on Wednesday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports. While there is no corresponding move, Rosenthal suspects the Red Sox are on the verge of a trade. Selsky is hitting .215/.270/.360 with 11 home runs in 79 games at Triple-A. He will continue to provide organizational depth going forward, whether with the Red Sox or with a team that claims him.
Selsky was optioned to Triple-A Pawtucket on Thursday, Peter Abraham of The Boston Globe reports. With Chase d'Arnaud being claimed Thursday, the Red Sox had to make a 25-man roster move to clear a spot. Selsky had appeared in just three games since April 16 and hadn't made a start since April 9 even with Boston's rash of infield injuries. He'll head down to Pawtucket, where he figures to see much more regular playing time.
Selsky is starting in center field Sunday in place of Jackie Bradley (knee), Jen McCaffrey of MassLive.com reports. Normally, we'd see Chris Young as a replacement outfielder, but he's needed at designated hitter to replace Hanley Ramirez (flu).
