Randol Doyle Choate (born September 5, 1975) is an American professional baseball pitcher with the St. Louis Cardinals of Major League Baseball (MLB). The New York Yankees selected him in the 1997 MLB Draft from Florida State University. Choate made his MLB debut for the Yankees in 2000.
As a left-handed relief pitcher, Choate appears mainly in matchups against left-handed hitters, who, as of 2013, have a .197 batting average against him in his career. Choate's pitching style features a sidearm-delivery style that hides the ball effectively from left-handed hitters, while only marginally so against right-handed hitters. His repertoire features almost exclusively a sinking fastball and slider combination.
