Red Sox prospect third baseman Garin Cecchini is hitting .438/.526/.500 over his first five games in Triple-A.
In most other organizations, Cecchini would be firmly ensconced at third base, but the Red Sox have Will Middlebrooks hitting .231/.333/.538 and Xander Bogaerts hitting .360/.448/.440. Cecchini will continue to star for Triple-A Pawtucket until there is an injury or a trade. Apr 8 - 10:40 AM

Red Sox prospect Garin Cecchini fanned all four times up Thursday versus the Marlins.

Cecchini had been 3-for-7 with a couple of walks this spring before his rough day. The 22-year-old is one possibility to emerge as the Red Sox's long-term third baseman, though he could also end up in the outfield. He hit .322/.443/.471 with 23 steals in a 2013 season split evenly between high-A Salem and Double-A Portland.
Mar 6 - 5:03 PM

Red Sox purchased the contract of 3B Garin Cecchini from Double-A Portland.

One of the more promising hitters in the minors, Cecchini batted .332/.443/.471 with seven home runs, 61 RBI, and 23 stolen bases over 129 games this past season between High-A Salem and Double-A Portland. We're still waiting on his power, but his ability to hit for average and get on base should carry him to the majors before long.

Garin Cecchini is batting .346/.457/.513 with 16 runs scored, seven doubles, two home runs and 19/16 K/BB in 21 games since a promotion to Double-A Portland in mid-June.

The 22-year-old third baseman was arguably the hottest hitter in the minor leagues over the first half of the season, posting a 1.016 OPS with 28 extra-base hits, 15 stolen bases and 34/43 K/BB in 63 games for High-A Salem. A left-handed hitter, Cecchini manages the strike zone as well as any hitter and has quietly hit his way up the organizational ladder since the start of the 2012 season. Although he lacks the power typically associated with a third baseman, his ability to hit for average and get on base at a favorable clip should help him reach the major leagues at some point next season.

Red Sox prospect Garin Cecchini has been promoted from High-A Salem to Double-A Portland.

Cecchini batted .350/.469/.547 with five home runs and 15 stolen bases in 63 games with Salem. The 22-year-old third baseman should continue to rise quickly through the Red Sox minor league system. He was a fourth-round pick in the 2010 first-year player draft.

Garin Cecchini, a fourth-round draft pick of the Red Sox in 2010, is currently batting .376/.471/.675 with 12 doubles, five home runs and 11 stolen bases through 32 games for High-A Salem this season.

The 22-year-old has also recorded more walks (20) than strikeouts (17) so far. Cecchini's red-hot start to the season comes on the heels of a breakout 2012 campaign in which he batted .305/.394/.433 with 38 doubles and 51 stolen bases in 118 games for Low-A Greenville. At his current pace, it's likely that the hot-hitting Cecchini will spend a portion of the 2013 season at Double-A Portland.

Red Sox prospect Garin Cecchini suffered a season-ending wrist fracture this past weekend.

Cecchini, a 20-year-old third baseman, was struck on the wrist by a pitch on Saturday. He's hoping to be fully recovered in time to participate in Boston's fall instructional league. The 2010 fourth-round pick had an .898 OPS in 133 plate appearances this season at Single-A Lowell.
