top performer Report

Last Chance- Downstate (November 18, 2017) Standing 6-foot-0, 180-pounds with a thick stronger build, runs a 7.3 60 yard dash (6 tenths of a second better than previous) with plenty of time to lower that number more. At the plate he's balanced, bat plane is mostly level through impact with barrel lift on extension, visible fluid bat-speed, exit velo off a tee at 82 mph. Defensively, stays behind the ball, fields slightly deep in his stance, hands work, above average arm strength at 82 mph across the diamond. Pitching, on the mound he's impressive. Simple clean mechanics, speeds up delivery on the down plane, clean arm-swing with his fastball sitting 82-84 mph from a high-3/4 slot. Low 70's curveball that shows 10/4 shape, mid to upper 70's changeup with fade. Overall, Antonelli is on the rise in the 2020 class, especially on the mound.
