Red Sox Draft Garin Cecchini (SS, High School)

New, comments

With the 143rd overall pick in the 2010 MLB Draft, the Red Sox selected shortstop Garin Cecchini out of Barbe High School (La.).

Here is a scouting video on Cecchini.

Cecchini is another tough-sign kind of guy who has already committed to play at LSU next year. He did not play in 2010 as an injured kept him off the diamond. The injury, plus his commitment to LSU, prevented him from being a first round draft pick this year.

Once again, the Red Sox have drafted a player with a high ceiling and one that will demand a lot of money to play pro ball. But that's how the Red Sox work -- and they're not afraid to work that way, either.

I don't expect to see Cecchini stick at shortstop. He could be a corner infielder or perhaps outfielder in the pro ranks.
