D'Antona had the opposite experience as Morton on the Cape last summer. He came in with a much bigger reputation and bombed, looking sloppy at the plate and at third base. Worse, he looked like he didn't care, turning off managers and scouts. He has rebounded this spring, setting Wake Forest's career home run record and winning Atlantic Coast Conference player-of-the-year honors. His power is legitimate, though his swing is a little long and he's a bit of a mistake hitter. He threw 94 mph off a mound during the Deacons' scouts day in the fall, but has such limited range that he might have to move from third to first base as a pro. A better use of his arm would be to put him behind the plate, but D'Antona has expressed no interest in catching.
