01/18/2019 - 2019 Baseball Factory All-America Pre-Season Rookie Tournament Ariel is a skilled RHH MIF who shines on the diamond. Defensively, he has active prep and quick/smooth actions. He works fluidly into a square fielding position and moves through the ball well. Ball is quick from glove to hand with zip and accuracy on his throws. At the plate, Antigua maintains a balanced setup and waits for a pitch he likes. Hands are quick as he whips the barrel with plus bat speed, squaring up and hitting line-drives with the ability to use the whole field. Only a 2023 grad - the future is very bright for this talented athlete.
