Anthony is an athletic (5’6”/140) two-way prospect (OF/RHP) in the 2024 class. In the outfield, he starts in an athletic position using smooth footwork with a quick first step to take good routes to the ball. He makes plays on-time with a sure glove using a 2-handed exchange to make efficient throws to the cutoff man. At the plate, this righty takes the box with a tall/open stance with high hands. Controlled rhythm into his load lets Anthony keep a quiet head/eyes where he tracks the ball well out of the pitcher's hand, hitting the ball back toward the center of the field. As an RHP, he takes the mound in a confident setup with good poise. He uses a two-pitch mix (FB/CB) with good command, staying out of the middle of the zone and attacking low looking to get GB's. FB ranges 60-69 and CB shows 11-5 shape with early break. He uses good mechanics with an on-time separation, repeating well. Only a 2024 grad - Anthony is a hard worker who still has a ton of time to progress to get to where he wants to be.

Anthony continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities. Foot speed has improved as he ran his best 60 time. At 2B, defensive abilities have improved as he displays clean / smooth actions. Feet are active as he displays proper footwork as he works to square ground balls up, displaying sure hands as he makes the plays. He shows off his athletic abilities on his feeds of the double play. Range will increase as he improves foot quickness. At the plate, hitting potential has improved through a tall setup. Hands are loose and work through a level swing path. He makes consistent contact through a line drive approach. On the mound, fastball showed a range of 50-54 mph. Breaking ball displays 11/5 shape with gradual break. Getting on a long toss program will help to increase arm strength which will aid in his development on the mound. Mental makeup is a plus as he has a positive attitude, works hard, and is very coachable.
