Personal

Antonio is a very versatile player, having been both a starting pitcher and reliever while also seeing action at catcher, first base, and the corner outfield spots.

As a pitcher, he features a four-seam fastball (mid-to-high 80s mph), sinker (low- to mid-80s), cutter (mid-to-high 70s), and splitter (mid-to-high 70s).

Antonio has been described as one who is very diligent and smart with his work. He is a quiet leader in the dugout, leads by example, and is not afraid to communicate issues in a respectful manner. He can manage multiple personalities and push for a common goal.  He is a good mentor to younger players.

He works out and trains regularly to stay in top condition and be ready to play.

Overseas Goals

Antonio wants to go overseas and extend his playing career.  In addition, he would like to eventually develop into a coach, front office member or team director.  He says, “I always felt that if I didn’t play college baseball, I would be studying abroad, and I feel like this could fill that gap that I didn’t get to experience.”
