GAVIN CECCHINI RUMORS

Three Mets first-round picks primed for breakout seasons

The first round of any sports draft differs in every sport. Football and basketball see their players reach the majors within 1-2 years while baseball players are consistently a gamble as to whether they make it at all. In the case of the Mets, the organization has seen its share of successes and failures. One could point out that Darryl Strawberry turned into an all-star while...

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.

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. ...

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.

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...
