RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Cecchini spent most of 2014 at Low-A Savannah (57 games) and High-A St. Lucie (68 games), and was largely underwhelming offensively. He hit eight home runs with 10 steals and slashed .247/.328/.378 in 534 plate appearances across both levels. He figures to start his age-21 season at Double-A Binghamton, but there are questions about his future position as he moves up the ladder. He lacks the defensive chops to cut it as a big league shortstop and he doesn’t have the stick to profile at the keystone. Cecchini may be able to hack it as a utility infielder at the highest level, but even that outcome is likely two years away, meaning fantasy owners should bypass him when sifting through middle infielders in the Mets’ system.

2014

Cecchini began and finished 2013 where he finished 2012, with Brooklyn of the New York-Penn League. In the year-and-a-half since he has been drafted, Cecchini hasn't done much to show he deserved to be the 12th overall selection in the 2012 draft. Cecchini still strikes out too often, walks too infrequently and has shown almost no power in over 400 plate appearances. He is just 20 years old, but needs to add strength to his frame and remain healthy enough to play a full season. Defense is his calling card, but there are question marks regarding his bat at this stage of his career.

2013

Cecchini was drafted 12th overall by the Mets in the 2012 draft. Some scouts felt that the team should have gone for Courtney Hawkins due to lack of true upside in Cecchini and questions as to how his bat will play down the road. However, Cecchini was viewed as a "safe" pick, and does have decent speed and is solid defensively, which should aid him as he moves up the ladder. For those considering options in dynasty leagues, the moderate ceiling makes stashing him less appealing.
