2006 Denney`s story would be funny if it wasn`t so tragic. After undergoing Tommy John surgery in his second full season as a pro, Denny was hit in the calf by a stray bullet while riding the team bus in 2004, but he avoided serious injury thanks to the knee-high cheerleader boots he was wearing as part of a rookie hazing ritual. Back in Triple-A for 2005, he missed the start of the season after being hit in the knee by a thrown bat and later spent a month on the DL with neuritis in his pitching elbow. Things would get worse: in late June, a line drive hit Denney behind his right ear, causing a fractured skull, brain contusion, and a punctured ear drum, ending his season. He pitched in winter ball, and his command of three pitches should help him make it, assuming adversity doesn`t come a` callin` again.
2005 A low-upside prospect, Denney was injured in a shooting after a game in September, but avoided serious harm thanks to an ironically well-timed hazing incident in which he was forced to wear a USC cheerleading outfit. The bullet deflected off the impenetrable white sweater he was wearing, grazing the right-hander and leaving no permanent damage. If Eddie Waitkus had been dressed like that when he went to Ruth Ann Burns' room on July 15, 1949, he could have avoided a literal hole in the heart, Bernard Malamud would have never written The Natural, and Randy Newman wouldn't have written the greatest baseball film score. Two out of three ain't bad, and while we're glad that Denney was unhurt, it appears the culture was seriously harmed by his survival.
2004 Considered the Eastern League's top control pitcher, Denney is the organization's right-handed doppelganger of Jason Stanford. A college pitcher drafted out of Oklahoma in '99 and something of a finesse guy, he's not considered a top prospect. However, if he keeps pitching well and moving up and avoiding a career-altering injury, at some point he'll get a shot-the survivors almost always do.
