2021 MLB Draft: Roc Riggio, 327th Overall, Milwaukee Brewers

July 13, 2021

There’s a lot to like with Roc Riggio, and there’s a lot to like with the Milwaukee Brewers taking him with their 11th round selection in the 2021 MLB Draft.

Riggio first came to the New Balance Baseball Future Stars Series powered by Program 15 as a highly touted player attending the National Combine, and didn’t disappoint with his efforts there, trying to play through an injury to showcase what he could do.

But it was as a member of the National Team at International Week in 2020 where Riggio really got to shine; he reached base in each of the three games played, and smacked an RBI double off of second-rounder Anthony Solometo at Fenway Park.

“Gamer, winner,” said Jeremy Booth, CEO and president of the Future Stars Series. “Roc’s one of those guys they take after the tenth round with some money they have saved from the first ten. Milwaukee took him; he’s going to hit, he’s going to play second base and left field. I always thought he was an F.P. Santangelo-type of guy, he doesn’t run quite like that, but that’s going to be the role profile.”
