2012 MLB Draft: Milwaukee Brewers Select Outfielder Victor Roache

Victor Roache, OF, Georgia Southern University: Roache hit 30 home runs as a sophomore last year, but missed almost this entire spring with a broken wrist, putting his draft status in doubt. He isn’t just a slugger and shows a good work ethic, but his track record with wooden bats is mixed. Any team that drafts him is banking on a full recovery from a significant injury that required insertion of screws, pins, and a metal plate. Obviously, the Brewers are encouraged by their medical reports. Roache is a right-handed hitter listed at 6-1 and 235 pounds, with solid tools across the board, though power is the obvious draw. Adding Roache and Clint Coulter to the system provides an immediate boost for an organization that lacks hitting talent in the minor leagues. Roache may not fully unleash his power until next year, given how long it takes wrist injuries to fully health, but if health allows this pick is a steal.
