GAVIN CECCHINI RUMORS

Mets Minor League Recap: Cecchini Homers, Below Tosses Shutout

Las Vegas (26-14) 2, Tacoma 0 Duane Below got the start for Las Vegas pitching 9 innings of fantastic baseball that saw him give up just four hits and a walk needing only 98 pitches to complete the shutout. Below was making just his 3rd start of the season after starting the year as the long man in the bullpen and evened his record to 3-3 with a 2.51 ERA.  Tacoma didn’t get...

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,...

Mets Minors: Could Matt Reynolds be the future shortstop?

Matt Reynolds is not a household name.  He was drafted in the second round of the 2012 draft as a plus defender at third base that the Mets planned to try out at shortstop.  He was an afterthought in a year the Mets drafted Gavin Cecchini (who is currently irrelevant in Port St. Lucie) but he’s certainly proving to be something more than some of us expected. As a third baseman...

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. ...

Amed Rosario and the Cyclones start play tonight

Summer is approaching, and in Brooklyn that means baseball is imminent. Tonight, the Brooklyn Cyclones open up their season in Staten Island with Amed Rosario expected to start at shortstop.  The 18 year old Dominican is in his second professional season and is currently the Mets’ fifth highest prospect according to MLB.com.  The major leagues is not exactly on Rosario’s radar...

Gavin Cecchini’s stock is rising

In the 2012 First-Year Player Draft, with the 12th overall pick, the Mets selected shortstop Gavin Cecchini out of Barbe High School in Lake Charles, Louisiana. It was the second draft of the Sandy Alderson era and the second straight year the team selected a high school player with their first draft pick.* This was a noted departure from recent drafts, in which the team used their...

Cecchini Brothers Making Waves In Pro Baseball

I found an interesting post on the Bleacher Report, where Mike Rosenbaum writes that Red Sox prospect Garin Cecchini could be Major League trade bait at the Winter Meetings.  The one interesting thing here is that Garin is the older brother of Mets Prospect Gavin Cecchini. Garin was drafted out of Alfred M. Barbe High School in Lake Charles, LA by the Red Sox in the 4th round...
