Randol O'Doyle Choate (born September 5, 1975, in San Antonio, Texas) is an American Major League Baseball relief pitcher for the Florida Marlins.

Choate attended Churchill High School in San Antonio, Texas, and was a letterman in baseball.

Choate made his debut on July 1, 2000, retiring the only batter he faced, in a 6–1 win over the Tampa Bay Devil Rays at Tropicana Field. In his 22 games for the New York Yankees that year, Choate had a record of 0–1 with a 4.76 ERA, after having his contract purchased by the Yankees from the Triple-A Columbus Clippers. After a career best 3–1 record with 3.35 ERA in 2001, Choate had a miserable 2002 and 2003, playing in just 23 games and a 6.23 ERA over that timespan.
