Baseball America is busy right now putting together its top 20 prospects lists by league now that the minor league baseball season is over. They got started last week with the Arizona League, the Gulf Coast League, Appalachian League, Pioneer League, NY/Penn League, Northwest League and Midwest League. Now we'll look at the South Atlantic League where the Red Sox minor leaguers play with the Greenville Drive. Two Red Sox farmhands are ranked in the top 20 prospects of the South Atlantic League. They are 3B Garin Cecchini and C Blake Swihart. Cecchini was a 4th round pick of the Red Sox in 2010 and spent the 2011 season with the Lowell Spinners. He played the entire 2012 season with the Drive where he hit .305 with four home runs, 62 RBIs and 51 stolen bases. Swihart was a first round pick of the Red Sox in 2011 and spent the 2011 season with the GCL Red Sox. He played the entire 2012 season with the Drive where he hit .262 with seven home runs, 53 RBIs and seven stolen bases. The next look at where Red Sox farmhands rank in their respective league comes in the next post when Baseball America looks at the top 20 prospects for the Carolina League.
