Denlinger originally hails from Pennsylvania and is entering his 13th season in baseball with previous stops with the Daytona Cubs, Delmarva Shorebirds and Reading Phillies organization.
"We are thrilled about Tom joining our organization. Finding the right fit for the team as we enter this new and exciting era of GreenJackets Baseball was mission one. Tom will be instrumental to our transition from Lake Olmstead to North Augusta and I look forward to welcoming him to Augusta", said Jeff Eiseman, President of the GreenJackets.
