Dan Denham, rhp
Deer Valley HS, Antioch, Calif.


Armed with a 94-96 mph fastball, Denham has emerged as the cream of the crop in Northern California, not to mention as one of the top high school pitchers in nation. In addition to maintaining his low- to mid-90s velocity deep into games, he has a hard-biting curveball that's among the best in the country. The 6-foot-2, 195-pound righthander is noted for his competitiveness on the mound. He manages to throw on a downward plane with good command, though he'll catch the middle of the plate too frequently. Denham is part of Pepperdine's strong recruiting class, but reportedly prefers to start his pro career.
