SAN ANTONIO — Casey Selsor agreed to terms with the Washington Nationals on Monday evening and the utilityman will be assigned to a Rookie-level club this week.
The San Antonio native already has reported to the Nationals' spring training facility in Viera, Fla., to complete his physical and he will be assigned to a squad in the near future.
Selsor, who was the 24th player in the program's 21-year history to be drafted, was selected by the National League club in the 23rd round last Wednesday. He was a 37th-round pick by the Nationals four years ago after competing his senior campaign at Reagan High School.
The 6-foot-3, 190-pounder twice was named to the John Olerud Two-Way Player of the Year watch list in addition to earning Southland Conference honorable mention laurels during his final two campaigns with the Roadrunners.
Selsor was second on the team this past spring with a .302 batting average to go along with 10 doubles, a program-record eight triples, one home run and 29 RBIs and he also swiped a team-leading 17 bases in 18 attempts. On the mound, the southpaw won four starts, posted a 5.55 ERA and recorded a team-high 54 strikeouts in a squad-best 84.1 innings of work.
He finished his career ranked among UTSA's all-time top five in two offensive categories: triples (11/t-5th) and stolen bases (38/t-4th) and also ranks among the program's all-time top 10 in six pitching categories: games started (47/4th), innings pitched (314.2/4th), strikeouts (220/5th), victories (18/6th), shutouts (1/t-7th) and complete games (6/t-8th).
