High School: Oak Ridge HS, El Dorado Hills, Calif.
College: UC Irvine
Ht.: 5'0" / Wt.: 180 lbs
Bats: R / Throws: R
Drafted in the 14th round (426th overall) by the Cleveland Guardians in 2021 (signed for $150,000)
A 26th-round pick of the Red Sox out of high school, Denholm was the Big West Conference pitcher of the year as a sophomore and didn’t allow an earned run in 32.2 innings over two years in the Cape Cod League. Teams had high hopes for him heading into both the 2020 and 2021 seasons, but his stuff declined as he battled injuries. After dealing with elbow inflammation and going unpicked in the five-round 2020 draft, Denholm suffered a foot injury at the start of this season and posted a 4.94 ERA while allowing a .298 opponent average. Denholm is an undersized righthander listed at 5-foot-11, 180 pounds and relies on his command to succeed. His fastball sits 88-90 mph and occasionally touches 93-94 mph. His upper-70s curveball flashes average and his mid-70s changeup is an above-average pitch. Denholm has above-average control, but his command went backward this year and he often got too much of the plate. He allowed 88 hits in 74.2 innings, including 25 extra-base hits. Denholm’s stuff doesn’t leave him much margin for error, so he has to rediscover his previous command. He has a chance to be taken on the draft’s second day.
