Cecchini is the 4th worst hitter in the International League with a 32 wRC+.

 

.180/.207/.270, 3.3% BB%, 30.4% K%, .090 ISO.

 

What a disaster.

There's some user name/post synergy going on there...

Here's hoping that if/when Jackie is eventually elected to Cooperstown, he chooses JBJ_HOF to make the introductory speech at his induction ceremony.  It's only right.

Cecchini is still putting up horrible numbers - .190/.263/.254 :barf:  Not even much BABIP help coming at .271.  7.6%BB / 28.7% K.  I defer to you guys that have followed prospects for a while, what does this mean for Cecchini's chances of becoming an MLB regular?  Is there any chance of him snapping out of this and getting back to being the 50 prospect that McDaniels put him as?  Could he be injured?  157 PAs is not too much of a small sample size anymore.  Thanks for any opinions or thoughts about him.

Chris Hatfield (of SoxProspects) opined on Twitter that Cecchini's problems could be stemming from trying to sell out for power, which strikes me as a reasonable take. From what I recall, Cecchini's scouting report always talked about his ability to square up the ball, and even if the power never came, he had a plus hit tool. Hard to imagine his numbers would collapse so drastically unless he did some serious re-tooling to get away from that approach.

I wonder if Keith Law still thinks his floor is Bill Mueller.

I know RBIs are heavily context-dependent and not really indicative of talent -- but Cecchini has only 2 RBIs through June 3.

165 PA (as of today) is indeed a small sample compared to his much larger sample of numbers he has put up his career up until this year. Plus his BABIP is 100 points lower than his career average.

 

He's been horrific for a month and a half of games, and there could be different reasons for it (injury, change in approach, mental issues stemming from last season/feeling blocked), but it is a small sample.

At this point, Cecchini is hitting .241/.320/.337 over 154 AAA games and 632 plate appearances. Add those numbers to his borderline defensive skills, and it's hard to argue with confidence at this point that he's got a major-league future.

Just when I open my big mouth...

 

 

 

After a single off the bat of Allen Craig and a pair of walks by Travis Shaw and Deven Marrero loaded the bases in the fifth inning, first baseman Garin Cecchini hit a grand slam to right to break open a one-run game. The 24-year-old finished the day 2-for-5, raising his average to .192. Cecchini’s grand slam was the first of the year for Pawtucket.

 

Cecchini apparently had shoulder inflammation in April, so maybe he's been bothered by the injury throughout May. He's gone through a mini-streak lately -- and while it's idiotic to read too much into these little bursts of production, I'm an idiot, so maybe this is a sign he's healthy and back.

He's somehow managed to get worse: now down to .187/.262/.280. He's 4 for his last 32, but he has gone 2 for his last 12, so he's on a (relative) hot streak! 

 

This guy is messed up and nothing seems to be helping to fix him.
