    Memphis was just a .500 college team, but scouts had several reasons to go see the Tigers, starting with three righthanders. Billy Edwards has perhaps the best stuff of the trio with a low 90s fastball, playable change and an inconsistent (but at times nasty) slider. However, Edwards has a lengthy medical history, with arm and knee surgeries that caused him to miss the 2002 season, and this is the first year he's experienced success.
