2010 MLB Draft, Pick 143: Red Sox Draft Garin Cecchini (SS, Barbe HS LA)

With the 143rd overall pick in the 2010 MLB First Year Player Draft, the Red Sox selected high school shortstop Garin Cecchini out of Louisiana.

An over-slot pick with a commitment to LSU, Cecchini profiled as a first round pick with a strong bat and solid defensive skills for a third baseman. A torn ACL limited his ability to showcase his talents, though, and likely hurt his stock some. Given that he’s not about speed, though, it’s not likely to effect his overall game.
