Triple-A Pawtucket manager Kevin Boles addressed calls for Cecchini to be called up to Boston to replace the injured Will Middlebrooks (calf), the Woonsocket Call reports. "Guys have one specific skill that's head and shoulders above the other parts. There's nothing strange about that, but the defense will improve as will the offensive approach," Boles pointed out. "He's got range to both sides and has arm strength. As far as learning the position because he was a shortstop (in high school), it's a process."

Cecchini is starting to develop some power at High-A Salem in 2013, his third season in the minors, the Providence Journal reports. "He's a strong kid, and he knows how to hit a little bit," Low-A Greenville manager Carlos Febles said. "When he learns to get the hands inside the baseball, especially the fastball in, to keep his hands close, I think the guy is going to hit 15 to 20 homers because he's such a strong kid."

2014

2013

After battling injuries in his first full professional season, Cecchini took a big step forward in his 2012 season at Low-A Greenville. Currently playing the hot corner, he showed off his strong arm in the field while hitting .305 with 38 doubles and 62 RBI at the plate. He also added 51 stolen bases in 57 attempts, showing good speed that runs in the family (his younger brother, Gavin, was a 2012 first-round pick by the Mets). He also showed strong discipline at the plate by taking 61 walks. The Red Sox's organizational depth chart is crowded with Will Middlebrooks locked in at third base ahead of him. Cecchini has not shown the power most teams look for in the corner infield (four home runs in 2012), so it will be interesting to see if a position change is in his future. Look for him to begin his age-22 season at High-A.

2012

Cecchini just started to get the hang of things at Short-Season Lowell in 2011 when a wrist injury cut short his season in July. This came after he missed all of 2010 with a torn ACL. The developmental delay has hampered his transition from shortstop to third base, but the 20-year-old already has nice swing mechanics with an ability to hit to all fields and power potential. The wrist injury healed and he participated in the Fall Instructional League with an eye toward Low-A Greenville in 2012.

2011

Cecchini was thought of as a first-rounder before he suffered an ACL injury in his senior year at Barbe High School (La.) and was available for Boston in the fourth round of the 2010 draft. He's got good size, and power potential, and may evolve into a third baseman down the road. It all looks good right now -- the swing, the athleticism, the footwork, the IQ -- we just need to see how it starts to come together in 2011. He hasn't played much baseball in the past year because of the injury, so expect Cecchini to start in extended spring training with a promotion to Short-Season Lowell in June.
