Milwaukee Brewers deal Biloxi Shuckers outfielder to Los Angeles

Even for a first round pick getting called up to the majors doesn’t happen overnight. Victor Roache is a walking testimony to the grind of Minor League Baseball, having maneuvered his way through the Milwaukee Brewers farm system, only to never make it past the double A level.
That’s not to say it won’t happen one day, just not with the Brew Crew. Today, the Big League club announced Roache has been traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers in return for a player to be named later or cash.
Roache, a former first round pick of the Brewers in the 2012 first year player draft, has been patrolling the outfield for the Biloxi Shuckers since their inaugural season in 2015.
After a promising start on the Coast, Roache has never been the same after fracturing his left fibula in 2016. So far this year, Roache is hitting just .176 and averaging more than a strikeout a game. He tells News 25 “I will have a fresh start with the Dodgers and new opportunity. I’m pretty hyped.”
In a follow-up move, Aaron Wilkerson is rejoining the Shuckers after going on paternity leave on April 24th.
Earlier this morning, Tristan Archer was called back up to triple A Colorado Springs where he’s already spent some time with the Skysox this season.
Biloxi’s current roster now features 24 active players with four more on the disabled list.
