#3 Gavin Cecchini, SS Biography: Born December 22, 1993 in Lake Charles, Louisiana, Cecchini was drafted out of Alfred M. Barbe High School by the Mets in the first round (12th overall) of the 2012 draft. It was the second draft of the Sandy Alderson era and, just as they did in 2011, the team selected a prep player with their first pick. This was not a surprise, as the team had...

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.

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. ...

2014 Mets Top Prospects: No. 11 Gavin Cecchini, SS

11. Gavin Cecchini Height: 6’1” Weight: 180 lbs. Age: 20 Bats/Throws: Right/Right Gavin Cecchini receives his fair share of criticism because his ceiling is not as high as your traditional first round draft pick. The Mets took Cecchini with the 12th overall pick in the 2012 draft because his already impressive floor provided somewhat of a safety net. His defense is already...
