He had a great freshman year but his first start this season wasn’t pretty and then word comes down today that he left his start after 13 pitches with reports of very poor velocity. A kid like Roache, who is a great kid by the way, may have seen a 2+mil payday in his future this June but with this injury he just very well may be available in the comp round and unless the Pirates see something terribly wrong in his medical report, I would hope they picked him then. He may only get half what he thought but an injury like this might just make him realize a 1mil payday isn’t worth passing up, especially returning as a senior with no negotiating leverage. I wish him the best of luck recovering from his injury and would still love to see him in a State College Spikes uniform this summer
