    DeGroat last summer had one of the better campaigns of any player in the Cape Cod League. He did not allow a run in 12 appearances (including the playoffs), struck out 30 batters in 15 innings and held opponents to five hits and seven walks. Coming off that summer, DeGroat was expected to be Liberty's Friday starter, which would have given him a chance to show scouts he could start. But he missed this season due to Tommy John surgery. When he's healthy, DeGroat has power stuff. His fastball sat 92-94 mph in short stints during the summer and he paired it with a biting slider. His power arsenal fits well in the bullpen.
