Profile: Selected by the Brewers in the 26th round following his senior season at Iowa, Roscetti signed with the Brewers and got his feet wet in the Arizona League in 2016.  He advanced to Helena a year later, and saw action in 45 games, showcasing his versatility by playing shortstop, second base and third base.  With good fundamentals up the middle, Roscetti has soft hands and gets good jumps, playing balls to his right and his left equally well.  An aggressive hitter with decent bat speed, he doesn’t generate a ton of bat speed at present, but is able to drive the ball from gap to gap.

2016:  Following a senior season that saw him earn All-Big Ten honors as a captain for the Iowa Hawkeyes, Roscetti signed with Milwaukee and was sent to the AZL to get his professional career underway in Maryvale.  He played in just 13 games there before breaking his foot, and wound up hitting .277 with a double, a triple and three stolen bases.

2017:  After opening up the 2017 season in extended spring training, Roscetti joined Helena once their season got underway in June and went on to appear in 45 Pioneer League contests.  In 174 at-bats, he hit .264 with nine doubles, three triples and a home run and knocked in 17 runs while scoring 30.
