(5/10/2013) Red Sox third-base prospect Garin Cecchini is beginning to be noticed for other than his heralded power potential at Class A Salem. Cecchini, in his third professional season after being selected in the fourth round of the 2010 MLB Draft, has blossomed into a threat on the base paths after stealing 51 bases in 57 chances last season.
During his first month with Salem this year, he has a .392/.478/.709 slash line along with 15 extra-base hits and 10 stolen bases in 21 games. Cecchini -- viewed as Boston's eighth-best overall prospect by MLB.com -- has named the organization's hitter and base stealer of the month for April.
