#27 Prospect - Randy Henry

#27 Prospect - Randy Henry

PostPost #1 by Jordan Tuwiner » March 18th, 2011, 2:20 pm


Randy Henry was selected by the Orioles in the 4th round of the 2009 MLB draft out of South Mountain CC. He signed for $365,000 and made his pro debut with the Delmarva Shorebirds last season (2010).

Henry’s pure stuff is almost unmatched within the Orioles organization. In a combined 23 innings between Delmarva and Aberdeen, he struck out 30 batters while walking just 6, giving him an impressive 5.00 K/BB ratio. On top of his strikeouts, Henry kept the ball in the park and on the ground, posting a 1.92 GO/AO ratio while allowing just one home run.

Had him a little higher on the list, but can't argue with your comments. Love to see the club look at him as a potential future closer. Praying for a healthy season in 2011 for Randy. He seemed to have a positive attitude in dealing with the injury last year, tells me he understands how to deal with adversity. Hoping he lands in Frederick to start, but I'd be happy to see him here on the Shore.

This is the common theme with alot of the pitchers in the organization, if they can return to form and build on the potential base before the injuries. There is alot to like about Henry and his makeup. The Orioles will take it slow with him, but I wonder if they should continue to stretch him out because it is a slight waste to see a groundball pitcher in a situation role.
