Red Sox recalled INF Garin Cecchini from Triple-A Pawtucket.

It's the first time that the 24-year-old has been recalled by the Red Sox this season. He has had a tough year offensively at Triple-A, slashing just .218/.293/.307 with six homers, 25 RBI and a 92/35 K/BB ratio.
Aug 15 - 11:43 AM

Red Sox prospect LF/3B Garin Cecchini had a huge game Thursday, going 4-for-5 with a pair of solo home runs and three runs scored for Triple-A Pawtucket.

It’s been a rough year for Cecchini, who is batting just .201/.271/.317 with 12 extra-base hits and an uncharacteristically bad 56/15 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 51 games this season. The 24-year-old fared well in his first taste of the major leagues last season, posting a .258/.361/.452 batting line and four extra-base hits in 31 at-bats. A third baseman for most of his career, Cecchini has started only 12 games at the hot corner this season compared to 25 in left field. He’s also appeared at first base in 11 games. Cecchini’s future role with the Red Sox is likely that of a utility player, but he’ll first need to get back on track offensively in Triple-A before getting another look in the big leagues.

Red Sox optioned INF Garin Cecchini, OF Bryce Brentz, and RHPs Heath Hembree and Zeke Spruill to Triple-A Pawtucket.

No real surprises here. Cecchini will try to rebuild his prospect stock in 2015 after batting just .263/.341/.371 with seven home runs and 11 stolen bases in 114 games last season at the Triple-A level. He could be trade bait this summer now that Pablo Sandoval is locked in at third base in Boston.

Garin Cecchini singled in all three of his at-bats against the Blue Jays on Thursday.

Cecchini would have been pretty interesting competing with Will Middlebrooks and Brock Holt for a starting job had the Red Sox failed to sign Pablo Sandoval. As is, he's certain to give Triple-A another go. The Red Sox could give him some outfield time in the minors, but it doesn't seem likely that they'll have a need for him there, either.
Mar 19 - 5:20 PM

Garin Cecchini hit his first major league home run on Wednesday as the Red Sox coasted to a win against the Rays on Wednesday.

Cecchini took Jake Odorizzi out to right field in the bottom of the second inning, putting the Red Sox on the board. The 23-year-old got his first taste of both Triple-A and the big leagues this season, handling both well. In 20 major league plate appearances, Cecchini is hitting .313/.450/.563.

Red Sox recalled 3B Garin Cecchini from Triple-A Pawtucket.

Cecchini was up briefly with the big club earlier this season but spent almost all of the year at Pawtucket, batting just .263/.341/.371 with seven homers and 11 steals over 114 games. He'll be used off the bench for the rest of the month.

Red Sox prospect 3B Garin Cecchini was 1-for-3 with a grand slam on Thursday for Triple-A Pawtucket.

The 23-year-old also walked and struck out in the game. Cecchini has had a slow month offensively at Pawtucket, as he's batting .217/.299/.367 with four extra-base hits and a 17-5 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 18 games. That said, he's now hit safely in four straight games, going 5-for-17 (.294) with two extra-base hits, four runs and six RBI during that span. He's appeared in one game for the Red Sox this season and is likely to return to the majors later in the year.

Red Sox recalled 3B Garin Cecchini from Triple-A Pawtucket.

Cecchini is only expected to be up briefly, as Stephen Drew is due to be added to the roster soon. The former fourth-round pick has batted just .278/.354/.335 in his first taste of Triple-A this season but is a career .307/.408/.440 hitter in the minors.
Sun, Jun 1, 2014 12:16:00 PM

According to Alex Speier of WEEI, the Red Sox will call up third base prospect Garin Cecchini on Sunday.

It's likely to be a short stay for Cecchini, who will provide infield depth for the Red Sox until Stephen Drew arrives later in the week. The 23-year-old is off to a sluggish start this season at Triple-A Pawtucket, but he's a .307/.408/.440 career hitter in the minors and was rated Boston's sixth-best prospect this winter by Baseball America.

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.
