Keith Law on the Mets’ farm system

The Mets still have a system loaded with high-probability big leaguers, including a couple of potential stars in Conforto, Smith and shortstop Amed Rosario. The re-emergence of Gavin Cecchini as a legitimate offensive prospect gives the Mets some options for their infield going forward, especially important when the team is owned by a Scrooge. Casey Meisner, one of my two sleeper...

Fulmer, Cecchini, and Nimmo: Building Blocks or Trade Chips?

As we approach the trade deadline, Mets prospects such as Michael Fulmer, Gavin Cecchini, and Brandon Nimmo have been swirling in rumors. Fortunately for me, during my visit to New Britain Stadium Wednesday afternoon, all these players were in the game. Gavin was starting at shortstop, batting 2nd. Brandon was in the lineup, too, playing […]

Mets Minor League Recap: Cecchini Stays Hot, Thompson With Four Hits

New York Mets should call up Gavin Cecchini

The New York Mets are currently sitting atop the National League East division with a 32-29 record. New York has gotten solid contributions from all facets of the game, their bats, arms, and gloves have all played relatively well this season. However, the biggest position of concern for the Mets has to be the left side of the infield. The Mets have one of the best third basemen...

Mets Minors: Gavin Cecchini vs. Matt Reynolds

Player A: 6’1”, 205 Lbs Player B: 6’2”, 200 Lbs Both players were drafted in 2012, one in the first round (Gavin Cecchini) and one in the second round (Matt Reynolds), but both could have a future in the Met infield.  So which player is the one to watch? Player A: .281/.348/.393 (4 Years in Minors) Player B: .264/.332/.373 (4 Years in Minors) As you can see, Player A has...

Cecchini Rakes For B-Mets

It was a draft pick viewed skeptically by many New York Met fans and openly derided by several more in the media when GM Sandy Alderson and his player development team selected Gavin Cecchini as... [[ This is a content summary only. Visit my website for full links, other content, and more! ]]

Mets Minors: Gavin Cecchini continues to impress offensively

The most unappreciated prospect for the Mets right now is Gavin Cecchini. It seems odd to type that since most of my comments since the day the Mets drafted him have been less than flattering. But the simple truth is that since the end of last season, Cecchini has been putting up tremendous numbers that are not a fluke. Cecchini got an undeserved promotion to Hi-A last year after...

Prospect Pulse: Don’t Sleep On SS Gavin Cecchini

It’s not often can a first round pick be called underrated. But among fans, prospect-lovers, and high-profile analysts, the verdict seems to be out on shortstop Gavin Cecchini. The 21-year-old was regularly absent from Mets top prospects rankings this offseason, and most people seem unimpressed with his high-floor, low-ceiling combination. However, after examining Gavin’s 2014...

Gavin Cecchini Is Doing Better Than You Think

A year and a half ago, my first article after joining MMO was about shortstop Gavin Cecchini, saying that he wasn’t as bad as people say, I wasn’t wrong, but it didn’t exactly show until this season. Cecchini wasn’t really a player that jumped off the page when he was selected, especially as a first round pick who was looking for an offensive threat, which quite frankly,...

Did Gavin Cecchini really earn a mid-year promotion?

The full-season leagues have reached the halfway point in their seasons, the typical point at which clubs deliver a mid-year promotion. The Mets bumped up at least 13 players, which seems like a high number but that’s nothing more than a guess. It could easily be that they promoted 20 guys this time last year. Regardless, of the 13, seven were hitters and six were pitchers. ...
