FRIDAY: The Brewers announced that they have signed Roache.
THURSDAY: The Brewers have agreed to terms with their first-round pick (28th overall) Victor Roache, reports Jim Callis of Baseball America (Twitter link). Roache, an outfielder from Georgia Southern University, will receive a $1.525MM bonus, slightly below the recommended slot price of $1.65MM. Roache is represented by Reynolds Sports Management.
Roache told 1250 WSSP Radio (h/t Jaymes Langrehr of Disciples Of Uecker) yesterday that his signing was imminent. "I’m coming into Milwaukee Thursday to get my physical and sign a contract, do the press conference and all that," Roache said. "You know, because of my injury from my college season, it was possible I might get shipped off to Phoenix and then start rehabbing, or I might come back home and find someplace here to rehab. Once I get my hand and wrist back fully 100%, they’re going to ship me off and we’ll start playing."
Brewers scouting director Bruce Seid told Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel (via Twitter) on Wednedsay that the team was "close with a lot of the top guys."
