SoCal ProCase:

Pitching:

Body: 6-foot-3, 225-pounds. Physical, strong, durable and athletic build. Body has really firmed up during the spring lockdown. 

Delivery: Smooth delivery; easy, high knee lift, before sinking into the hips and exploding down the mound. Slightly open landing with closed strike plant foot, maintains excellent body control throughout, releases from a H 3/4 slot while finishing in an athletic position. 

FB: Worked 91-92 mph with a peak of 92.2 mph / 2499 rpm avg spin rate (2560 rpm max) / 19” avg IVB (21.8” max) / 9.5” avg horizontal movement (HM) (14.3” max) - The spin rate puts him in the top 10% for MLB pitchers based on 2019 averages collected by Trackman. The IVB is a clear example of how effective Randall is up in the zone as his average of 19” would put him in the top 10% of MLB pitchers as well. His IVB is complimented by his average extension of 6’4” which ranks near the top for high school pitchers. The HM shows a lively, running fastball that he’s able to manipulate to various quadrants in the zone. 

SL: 81-82 mph - 2694 rpm average / Horizontal Movement -9.6” / Induced Vertical Movement 2.2” - The spin rate puts Randall in the Top 10% of high school pitchers and is slightly above average for collegiate pitchers. The movement and depth of the pitch are also on the higher end for HS pitchers and about average for collegiate pitchers. He has the ability to spin it and flashes sharp biting action at times and has the look more of a curveball than slider presently. The continued development of this pitch will go a long way in solidifying Randall as a starter at the next level. 

CB: 78.8 mph - 2345 rpm spin rates / Induced Vertical Movement -8.5” / Horizontal Movement -15.2” - The spin rate on the curveball puts Randall in the Top 20% of high school pitchers and is a tick above average for collegiate arms. The IVB puts Randall in the top 15% of MLB pitchers while his HM ranks in the top 5% for high school arms. He only threw one curveball in his outing but it was in for a strike.

SoCal ProCase:

Hitting:

Hit: RH - Blast Motion on plane efficiency of 80% is above the ideal range of 70% or higher. The rotational acceleration number of 15.5g is slightly below the MLB average of 17g but well above average for HS hitters and slightly above average for collegiate hitters. That number is an indicator of how quickly a hitter can accelerate the bat into the swing plane allowing more time for the hitter to commit. Randall shows a direct, attacking path to the ball that results in loud contact. 

Power: 104.0 mph max exit velocity with an average of 88.4 mph with a wood bat. The max bat speed of 74.3 mph is above the average of collegiate hitters. Bat speed correlates to power potential and when paired with his 23.9 mph peak hand speed what you have is a power hitter who can catch up to pitches in all quadrants and get barrel on those pitches. 

Field: This is where Randall really stands out. Sets up quietly and sunken in his crouch. Despite his size there’s quickness to his game behind the plate where he shows excellent lateral movement and the ability to block/recover quickly. Gets out of his crouch quickly and efficiently on bunts. Also plays first base where his athleticism plays way up. 

Arm: 83 mph - pops 1.95-2.01. A quick release and powerful arm makeup for any perceived deficiencies in getting the ball to second base. Throws show some tailing and sinking action which were accurate to the bag. Misses are to the first base side and rarely misses high.

Run: 7.54 laser-time 60 yard dash on a grass surface.

PBR FUTURE GAMES

Six-foot-3, 205-pounds, extra-large frame with strength throughout, broad shoulders and strong wrists. Pitched in today’s and was lights out going four innings, allowing 1 hit, one walk, and striking out six. Working from a high 3/4 delivery Randall has no wasted motions in his delivery that sees him generate very good downhill plane with pitches. It’s a bit of a dip-and-drive delivery that allows him to use his strong lower half to explode down the mound. There’s little deception to his delivery, but he’s able to repeat the mechanics and arm slot consistently. Fastball worked comfortably 85-86 into the fourth while topping out at 88 mph. Slider was a wipeout pitch that he threw for strikes at 74-77 mph
