Through Sunday, Kane County SS Justin Sellers was hitting .293 with a .359 on-base percentage. The spunky middle infielder has been compared to David Eckstein because of his small frame and top-notch work ethic. Sellers has good speed and a line-drive approach at the plate. He sees a lot of pitches and has an advanced understanding of the game for a 20 year-old. Sellers was rated one of the best defensive shortstops coming out of high school in the 2005 draft, and he hasn't disappointed with the glove so far this season.

Keith Glab caught up with Sellers during the Kane County Cougars series versus the South Bend Silver Hawks.
