Red Sox Top Prospect Voting #9: Garin Cecchini's 32 Games

Give Garin Cecchini 32 games, and apparently he'll convince you he's a top 10 prospect in Boston's system. Imagine what he can do with a full season?

Drafted in the fourth round of the 2010 draft, Garin Cecchini is the kind of prospect you love to dream on. Expected to go in the first round before an ACL injury robbed him of his 2010 season, Cecchini has just about all the tools that stars are made of, and he showed them off some in his first season of professional ball at Lowell. Hitting .298/.398/.500 with a 19:17 K:BB ratio, Cecchini was likely on the fast track to either a promotion or a ridiculous final line given that those figures are dragged down by a very slow start.

But then came a pitch to the wrist, a fracture, and yet more baseball missed for the exciting young player due to injury. It's not necessarily the sort of injury that screams "fragile", but between two straight shortened seasons and his lack of playing time against age-appropriate competition, Cecchini will have to put together a long, solid season to get a bump up the charts suitable to his talent.
