Antony is an athletic C/RHP who has a promising future on the diamond. Behind the dish, he presents a soft/sure mitt showing great pocket awareness sticking pitches. He uses his body through the blocking process but needs to work to get body down sooner. Pop times showed in 2.20 range with accuracy and carry on his throws. Times will continue to drop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss. At the plate, he continues to shine through an open setup. Hands are quick (81 mph exit velocity) and work through an aggressive swing path. He makes consistent contact through a line drive approach with power showing best to the pull side. Power will continue to improve as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently. On the mound, delivery is sound / repeatable as he shows good tempo through a strong balance point, allowing his arm action to work quick and free to the plate. Fastball shows a range of 66-68 mph. Breaking ball displays 10/4 shape with gradual break. He maintains arm speed on his changeup with slight sinking action. Control is solid as he throws strikes with all his pitches. Stock on the mound will continue to increase as builds more arm strength through a long toss program. With 5 years to further develop, Anthony has a big upside and will get looks from the collegiate coaches as he continues to progress his game.
