Gary (Randy) Bishop is a 2008 RHP with a 6'1'', 210 lb. frame from Semmes, AL who attends Faith Academy. He has a powerful, broad shouldered build with limited projection. Bishop has a full delivery and a very long, extended arm action in back. He tends to rush through his delivery and his arm drags behind, creating strain on his shoulder. Staying more compact will help his stuff and consistency. Bishop has plenty of arm speed at release and threw up to 91 mph, although his fastball was pretty straight. His curveball was 74 mph and suffered from his rushing to the plate and was pretty loose. He also mixed in a couple of change ups. We've seen Bishop throw better and harder in the past and it looked like he was pressing a bit. Bishop is a good athlete and his power arm is something to watch in the outfield. He has a power approach at the plate with a big uppercut swing and plus raw power. He has the potential to be a power/power two-way guy at the college level and his arm strength plays anywhere.
