Antonelli played seven seasons in a Giants uniform, and was a member of the team when it moved to the west coast. His best season occurred in 1954, his first year as a Giant. Antonelli accumulated a 7.5 WAR, while going 21-7 with a 2.30 ERA. That year was also his first all-star appearance, and he finished third in MVP voting.
From there, Antonelli was named an all-star four of the next five years. In seven seasons as a member of the Giants, he went 108-84 with a 3.13 ERA, made five all-star appearances, and won one World Series ring.
