Draft Prospect of the Day: Gavin Cecchini

New, 6 comments

Gavin Cecchini, SS, Barbe HS, Lousiana

Cecchini is 6', 175 LBS and is the younger brother of Red Sox prospect Garin Cecchini but are very different players. Defensively, Gavin will be a shortstop but may have to move to 3B if he fills out and slows down, or even 2B if that occurs. He has a solid average arm, very good actions and average range.

Gavin is a great hitter with a quick swing and a contact approach. The swing is more of a line drive swing than a power swing but he will hit a few out as he gains strength. He will hit his share of extra base hits to the gaps though. He utilizes his speed very well and could be a 25-30 steal guy early on.

Gavin could be an average defensive shortstop with an above average bat. His bat would have to play up if he moves off the position though. He looks to be a mid-1st round pick. If he doesn't sign he is slated to head to Ole Miss.
