Gavin’s older brother, Garin, is a third baseman in the Boston Red Sox system, drafted in the fourth round of the 2010 draft. Garin profiles as one of the best hitters in the Boston farm system, ranking as a top ten prospect after his first full professional season. Gavin is also making a name for himself, being considered as a consensus first round talent.

The younger Cecchini has a quick swing and makes hard contact. He hits to all fields and has gap power now, but he could add some home run power down the line. The big question with any high school shortstop is whether they can remain at the position. Gavin has a good shot at sticking at the position, with good range, good hands, and a strong arm. He has the speed to be a threat on the bases, and that speed also helps him defensively.

Shortstop is the hardest position to fill for any team, and finding a good all around player is the ultimate goal. Cecchini rates as one of the best all around shortstops in the 2012 draft class, and has a good chance of sticking at the position. He ranks in the 10-20 range, but wouldn’t be a bad top ten pick, depending on who is still on the board, as he’s a rare guy out of high school who has a strong chance of sticking at shortstop.
