The Dodgers have acquired a Brewers outfielder.
Victor Roache, a minor leaguer, is now a Dodger. Milwaukee is owed cash considerations or a player to be named later. He’s slashed .240/.313/.416 in his five-year minor league career.

Roache was the Brewers’ first round selection in 2012. He hasn’t developed as the team hoped, specifically with the bat. His calling card was power, in which he excelled at Georgia Southern. He hammered 22, 18 and 18 homers in his first three season in Milwaukee’s system. But his production sharply dipped, and injuries kept him off the field.
Now 25-years-old, Milwaukee apparently didn’t value him as depth. The Brewers’ system is stacked in the outfield, with Lewis Brinson, Corey Ray, Trent Clark and Brett Phillips in their top 10 prospects. Coincidentally, Roache was selected one pick ahead of Brinson, who was originally drafted by the Texas Rangers.
