Travis Groethal was never going to beat out McClain. He has good value when healthy though as he can back up all 3 LB positions. He was a 'shot' at beating out Groves.
Again in 2012 he has a shot at a starting spot but certainly not at MLB. A may find a niche for himself in certain rotations and formations. First-and-foremost, he must get through camp and stay healthy.
