Biographical Information[edit]

Relief pitcher Randy Henry played in the minor leagues from 2010 to 2015.

He was taken by the Baltimore Orioles in the 4th round of the 2009 amateur draft (between Zack Dodson and Jason Stoffel) and began his professional career the next year. The signing scout was John Gillette. He split the summer between the Aberdeen IronBirds (0-1, 1 R in 2/3 IP) and Delmarva Shorebirds (1-1, 5.64). He struck out 20 in 23 innings but allowed 30 hits.

After that ho-hum rookie season, he posted a 2.22 ERA with only 8 walks in 52 2/3 innings split between the Shorebirds (4-0, Sv, 1.67 in 20 G) and Frederick Keys (0-3, Sv, 3.60 in 9 G) in 2011. On December 1 of that year, he was traded to the Texas Rangers with a player to be named later (minor leaguer Greg Miclat) for catcher Taylor Teagarden. He pitched 29 games, including 11 starts, for the Myrtle Beach Pelicans in 2012, going 5-9 with a 3.35 ERA. He tied for 9th in the Carolina League in losses and tied Greg Reynolds for 4th in the Rangers chain in defeats.

In 2013, with the Frisco RoughRiders, he had a 1.07 ERA and .77 WHIP (2-0, Sv) in 31 relief appearances but missed over a month with elbow inflammation. Lefties hit only .133 and righties .210. He began 2014 with the Triple-A Round Rock Express, his first taste of Triple-A. He had a 5.34 ERA in 23 games split between two clubs. He played a single game for the independent Fargo-Moorhead Redhawks (1 IP, 4 ER) in 2015 to wrap up his career.

Overall, Henry went 14-14 with a 3.26 ERA in 124 games (11 starts) over 6 seasons. In 242 2/3 innings, he allowed 244 hits and 65 walks, while striking out 194 batters.
