The Brewers took Georgia Southern outfielder Victor Roache with their second first-round pick, at No. 28 overall.
Roache missed most of the season with a broken left wrist, a serious injury that kept him out of the season after March. Roache hit 30 home runs in 2011, the first college hitter at Division I to hit 30 since 2003. He did it in the first year of the weaker BBCOR bats. We had more on his injury here.
Roache's other tools are solid, not spectacular, so all his value is in the bat. If healthy, the Brewers got perhaps the best college power bat in the draft.
