Farone was an 82-84 mph arm back in 2019 and ranked as the No. 116 New York prep prospect in the 2020 class. He blossomed on all fronts as a Herkimer freshman, posting a 6-0 record, 2.09 ERA and 74/19 K/BB in 43 innings en route to 2nd Team NJCAA DIII All-American honors. At 6-foot-6, 235 pounds, Farone has an ultra-projectable frame that suggests he has more velocity in the tank when combined with his clean and repeatable arm action. At Herkimer's fall Scout Day, Farone's fastball sat 90-92 and was up to 93, with a top spin rate of 2444 rpm and 23.1 inches of induced vertical break. The Louisville recruit's curveball checked in at 75-77, and he also impressed with his feel for mixing in an 84-85 cutter.

The 6-foot-4, 180-pound primary left-handed pitcher featured a long and lean frame with projectability. The lefty utilized a low effort, high ¾ arm-slot to create slight downhill action on an 80-84 mph fastball. Commanded a 1/7, 68-71 mph curveball with depth. Displayed a 70-71 mph changeup thrown with adequate sell. The left-handed hitter starts with an even, slightly bent stance utilizing a leg-kick to initiate his swing. Demonstrated a flat attack angle upon impact while registering an 81 mph bat-exit velocity during batting practice. The first baseman recorded accurate 75 mph throws from his position.
