    Righthander Andy Groves threw 86-88 mph as an undrafted junior last year. When there were reports he had jumped to 93-94 mph against Auburn in March, scouts scrambled to see him. That was easier said than done, as Groves pitched just 26 innings out of the Purdue bullpen. He got hit to the tune of a 5.54 ERA and showed just an OK fastball and slurve, so scouts still aren't sure what to make of him. Groves pitched for the National Baseball Congress World Series champion Santa Barbara Foresters last summer, and he returned to them as a starter while awaiting the draft.
