Long known for his immaculate control at the front of Sacramento State’s rotation, Randall led the nation with an 11.44 strikeout-to-walk ratio this spring and showed a velocity bump to enhance his draft stock. After ranging from 87-91 mph in previous years, Randall began sitting at 90-92 mph and touched 96 this season without sacrificing any of his plus-plus control. He went 7-2, 2.89 with 103 strikeouts and only nine walks in 87.1 innings for the Hornets. Randall’s stuff doesn’t jump out on paper, but everything plays up with his command and deception. His fastball is sneaky and gets on hitters faster than they expect to draw swings and misses in the strike zone. His best secondary is an above-average changeup he uses to keep hitters off-balance and his slider is a fringy but usable offering he can land for strikes. Randall mostly beats hitters with his fastball and goes right after them with it. He trusts his stuff, doesn’t nibble and has the command to exploit holes in batters’ swings. Randall’s performance and improved stuff have teams interested on the draft’s second day or early on the third day. He is a fourth-year junior and projects to sign.
