Good athletic "05" C/OF who can really run. Good rotational hitter with a line drive approach. Nice receiver with excellent quickness and good hands. The only thing he needs to do is increase his arm strength and he's a good DI player.
PG Grade 7.0

Sellers is a multi-versatile athletic catcher from Indiana. He is only a sophomore and has some very interesting ability. Most of that ability revolves around his athleticism. He lists himself as a catcher and an outfielder. We think there is a chance he might even play second base in college. His body is a real lean one at 5' 9 and has good musculature in it. Those muscles all work fast. He runs very well, ran a 6.9 on the laser in the 60 and his legs are strong. Well above average speed for a catcher at any level. Defensively he showed some of the same athleticism behind the plate. He showed quick footwork and a strong body coming out from behind the plate. His arm is not his strongest tool, he was clocked at 68 mph down to second base. His best pop times were 2.09 and with an arm strengthening program those times would be improved a lot. He is short from his ear and aggressive in his actions and we like the way he practiced and played all weekend. Although he has some real good physical ability, his bat might be his best tool. He can hit the ball hard and showed some impressive hitting ability. Starting with his stance, he is slightly open and uses a small heel lift keeping his toe down to eliminate a stride and excessive weight shift. His hands start out in a good position and load back and down instead of straight back. It does not seem to hurt his swing however, as he triggered his swing with a quick vertical movement of the bat and came out fast and level. We liked the way he zipped it through the zone. His bat-speed was excellent and the ball jumps off his bat. He began the weekend hitting left field shots and ended the weekend hitting opposite field shots. What he practiced in the cages, he took to the batting practice sessions and that showed us that he came to learn. This is a real good sophomore that we would expect to get better every time we see him. He should grow into some pretty good habits and those tools will take him a long way. Keep a close eye on him.
