An Area Code Games veteran, Denholm would likely be a first five rounds pick if he were more physical. As it is, he's quick-armed and has some polish of his three-pitch repertoire. He usually sits in the 87-91 mph range, with reports that he's touched higher. He can spin a breaking ball, though his curve can get sweepy. He's balanced on the rubber, repeats his delivery and throws a changeup with some fade to give him a third pitch. He has a chance to have plus command eventually. Denholm out-dueled Cody Bolton and Tracy High 1-0 in a heavily-scouted Boras Classic game in April. At 5-foot-11, 183 pounds, he's athletic and competitive, and should be an immediate contributor at UC Irvine.
