Player profile: Rick Anton

I have one card of Rick Anton, from 2011 Bowman Draft Picks & Prospects.

Playing career: Rick Anton was the Dodgers 11th round draft pick in 2011, and pitched in fourteen games at Ogden and Great Lakes, going 1-1 with a 3.07 ERA.

Where he is now: Despite good pitching numbers and a high draft pick, he appears to have disappeared without a trace. He didn’t pitch in 2012, and there doesn’t seem to be anything online about why (injured? quit?)

My memories: Only know him from his card.

Google Autocomplete results: He is ninth when you type Rick Ant, between Rick Santelli, an anchor on CNBC, and Rick Antle Yale, an accounting professor. Another prominent Rick Anton is an insurance agent.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Andy Araujo.
