RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
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.
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.
