Antone, a high-school teammate of Noah Syndergaard, spent one season at Texas Christian before transferring to Weatherford (Texas) JC for 2014. After seeing limited innings in relief for the Horned Frogs, he got a chance to start for Weatherford and excelled, posting a 2.88 ERA and 99 strikeouts in 84 innings. Antone has a nice, athletic 6-foot-4 frame and was up to 93-95 mph this spring. He leans on a cutter as his go-to secondary pitch and will throw it in any count. He'll also mix in a curveball and, on rare occasions, a changeup. His fastball command and mound presence also made noticeable improvements. He's committed to Auburn.
