Walter on Sellers
"Donnie makes the transition from the bullpen to the weekend rotation this year. He has always had a plus fastball and has now added two reliable off-speed pitches. He has the ability to be electric when he commands his fastball. Donnie will also give us depth in the outfield this spring."
