Orenduff started his college career with George Washington, going 10-2, 1.68 as a freshman. He transferred to Virginia Commonwealth and bolstered the staff, going 9-3, 2.27 with 120 strikeouts in 90 innings as a sophomore. He pitched last summer for Team USA, where he was part of a dominant staff that won a silver medal in the Pan American Games. Orenduff went 6-0, 1.31 for Team USA on the summer, with 40 strikeouts in 41 innings, and started two of the team's four shutouts in the tournament. That performance and his three solid pitches put him in the mix to go in the first round, and he didn't hurt those projections with a 4-5, 2.49 performance so far this spring. He had 123 strikeouts against 31 walks in 94 innings for the Rams. He has a prototype pitcher's body, compact delivery, and loose, easy arm action. The 6-foot-4, 200-pounder works off a heavy 87-93 mph sinker, and supplements it with a deceptive changeup and a slider with cutter action.
