Randy Dobnak's FB sits around 92-94 and tops out at 96.  Strike % is usually above 70. I heard it once said Bob Gibson pitched like he was double parked.  Randy works the same way.  He works fast and throws LOTS of strikes.

I have a feeling he'd be up in the bigs today if he hadn't thrown 6 yesterday. Nice work Pop - you'll be sitting in the stands at Target watching him before the year is done!

Could be, although Dobnak isn't yet Rule 5 eligible this winter (unlike Smeltzer and Poppen, for example, or even Stashak and Eades who were already eligible).
