Supporters of my Patreon site were aware of that news nine days ago.
The 23-year-old Georgia native was the Phils' first round draft selection in 2015. In his five minor league seasons, Randolph sports a .255 batting average with 31 home runs, 190 RBI and a .719 OPS.
Randolph's 2018 and 2019 seasons were spent playing for Double-A Reading.
Randolph will join several other Phils prospects on the Giants roster this coming season, including native Australians Rixon Wingrove and Mitchell Edwards as well as New Zealander Kyle Glogoski. A list of seven other American Phillies prospects set to be part of the Adelaide roster is available by supporting my work over at Patreon.com/PhoulBallz.
Also available on the Patreon page is a recent exclusive interview with outfielder Matt Vierling talking about his time at Instructs and getting some time at first base.
Pitcher Luke Leftwich is already in Australia preparing for his ABL season as a member of the Melbourne Aces. He'll be joined on that club by familiar faces like hurler Josh Tols, catcher Chris Burke and infielder Damek Tomscha.
