02/17/18 - Florida recruit. Solidified himself as a top half of the first round type player. While he seemed amped up early, loosing some control, the fastball was electric at 94-96 mph. Once he got out of that inning he settled in and dominated for three innings. The delivery continues to improve as he repeats and gets better extension. He is extremely athletic and shows adjust-ability on the mound and the athleticism lends to an extremely high upside. The fastball worked 94-96 early and settled in around 91-94 mph for most of the night. Maybe most importantly, he showed a much improved slider that flashed plus at times. Working 77-81 mph it had a had late action and tighter spin and swing and miss on five of his ten strikeouts.
8/24/17 - Named to Team USA 18U team.
7/10/17 - Named to Team USA 18U trials roster.
6/28/17 - Was scheduled to pitch Thursday, but was called upon to eat the ninth inning for Pride on Wednesday instead. He made quick work of it, needing just 13 pitches to get through four batters. He started off by striking out Turang and SS Bobby Witt Jr. (Colleyville Heritage HS, TX) before allowing a bloop single to OF Jarred Kelenic (Waukesha West HS, WI) and then getting OF Cole Roederer (Hart HS, CA) to pop out to third base. He threw nine of his 13 pitches for strikes and sat 92-94 with his fastball, which had riding life. The shape on his breaking ball varied between 11/5 and 10/4, but it flashed sharpness. He also mixed in a changeup at 85. Denaburg, a Florida recruit, has a very simplified windup, with minimal movement before his leg kick.
05/20/17- Florida recruit. The 6-foot-3, 180-pound RHP/C/OF has a long, athletic body that looks like it has added some muscle since the fall and looks bigger then 6-foot-3.  In the outfield, he moves well, and showed off an easy, quick arm with carry.  Every throw he makes looks effortless, and jumps out of his hand. At the plate, he stands tall and with a medium leg kick trigger stays balanced through the swing. He showed easy pull side power and could generate more staying in his legs and using the lower half a bit more. His hands can get away from the body at times, but when he stays tight he has an extremely short, quick swing with a feel for the barrel and big power potential. Behind the plate the athleticism is on display with good flexibility in his setup and soft but strong hands allow him to receive very well.  There is a lot of potential defensively, as he can really control his body and as he learns how to position himself could be a plus receiver.   After going through the full workout, and playing the entire game with some innings behind the plate, he hopped on the mound. He was still 90-93 in his inning of work with effortless velocity, and he looked like he was tired. He throws from a 3/4 slot with a lot of life on the fastball. Also showed a 71-73 mph slider with a quality shape and when he throws it harder will have a potential to be an above average pitch. Changeup was 81-83 mph with late fading action that he also showed a feel for. He is an all around athlete with an extremely high ceiling. As he continues to log more innings and the natural athleticism will clean up a few of the inconsistencies, look for him to make some big jumps all around on the mound.

10/23/16- Florida recruit. Denaburg continued to prove why he is one of the top players in the country for 2018 class. In a matchup against one of the top 2017 arms in Jack Leftwich, he matched up for 3.2 innings with his fastball sitting 89-92 mph with some late life while striking out four.
10/16/16- Florida recruit. One of the two 2018’s in attendance, he showed why he is one of the top players in that class. He is 6-foot-4 and 190 pound on a lean frame with room to grow. Although he struggled a bit to throw strikes this outing, you can see all of the tools and athleticism. The arm works free and easy with a fastball that ranges from 88-90 mph. He also showed a slider at 75-76 mph and a changup at 82-83 mph. The offspeed stuff has good actions and will continue to improve. This coupled with the athleticism and clean, easy arm action will make him one of the top players in 2018.
6/27/16- Florida recruit. Currently ranked No. 15 in the 2018 class, the 6-foot-3 190-pound athlete has impressed on the mound earlier this summer and this weekend he was very impressive at the plate. He showed good rhythm in his setup which led to a balanced, level swing with very quick hands through the zone. The ball jumped off of his bat and was consistently on time with extension through the baseball driving the ball into both gaps.

6/14/16- Florida recruit. Currently ranked No. 15 in the Florida 2018 class, No. 31 overall. Tall, lean, projectable build on a 6-foot-3, 190 pound frame. On the mound he showed a loose, quick arm with some extension out in front. Throws from the stretch out of the high ¾ arm slot. Can fall off to the side occasionally. Works quickly. Fastball sits 90-91 mph with some run and touches 92. Curveball sits 73-74 with some good break. Displayed good hands with a strong, accurate throw down to 2B from behind the plate. Very athletic. Shows some good bat speed and the ability to square it up when he stays back. Balanced in the box.
3/11/16 - Florida recruit. 6-foot-3, 180 pound catcher with a tall loose athletic projectable body with a big frame. Has a lot of room to fill out. Solid receiver with decent hands. Lacks mobility. Goes to knee to block. Above average arm strength. Swing has good leverage with some quickness. Has length in swing. Likes to get extended on balls out over the plate. Has also been up to 89 mph on the mound.
9.3.15 - Verbally committed to the University of Florida
4/7/15 - Tall loose lean projectable very young body. Loose bat with some quickness. Lacks strength right now but will come in near future. Good leverage. Still very young playing at a high level. Got 1 of only 2 hits off of Drew Parrish. Played SS but best position is catcher. Showed decent actions with a plus arm. Made the routine plays. Also came in and pitched and was 87-89 mph with a curve ball at 76-77 mph that was a short breaking downer. Had a loose arm with good down tilt at a high ¾ slot. Very projectable.
2/10/15 - 6-foot-3, 165 pound outfielder and pitcher but says his best position is catcher. Tall skinny projectable very young kid. Solid defensive outfielder with arm strength. Swing has quickness with leverage. Will improve with added strength. Still very young. Good hand eye. Make a lot of contact. On the mound, had a loose easy working arm with a high ¾ slot and  a very good delivery. Fastball was 85-88 mph. Curveball was 72 mph with a ¾ rotation that will tighten up as velocity improves. Very high ceiling arm. Did not see catch.
