The Eastern League has announced the addition of Binghamton Mets shortstop Gavin Cecchini to the Eastern Division roster for the All-Star Classic to be played in Portland on . Cecchini enjoys his second straight All-Star honor after representing the Savannah Sand Gnats at the South Atlantic League All-Star Game in 2014.
Cecchini, 21, joins Brandon Nimmo, Josh Rodriguez, Luis Cessa and Paul Sewald as the B-Mets representatives to the League’s annual talent showcase. In his first full season at Double-A the Lake Charles, Louisiana native is hitting .280 with five home runs and 30 RBI. The Mets first overall pick in the 2012 draft etched his name into B-Mets lore last year by scoring the game-winning rule to clinch the franchise’s first Eastern League championship in 20 years.
