  1. Cecchini seems strangely absent from this list. He is the type of prospect that could surprise a lot of fantasy interests comes this spring. There is no reason to think that he will not continue to hit. He will not be a top 200 player, but he will be an excellent bench addition. Although he could handle SS, with Cabrera signed for 2017 and Rosario projected to soon appear, the position is pretty much locked up. Second base though is another story. Rosario and Cecchini could be a successful middle infield. Cecchini has the ability to hit at the big league level. He has proven this at each level. Check out his AFL stats from this past fall.

    • I wrote about this in my Marcos Molina write-up. This is what I said…

      While the safe name at number 10 would have been Gavin Cecchini, I just think he lacks the upside for a site that leans towards the fantasy player. He can hit, plays solid defense but just lacks the secondary skills that would warrant including him on your fantasy team. Instead, I decided to include Marcos Molina, a young right-hander who missed the entire 2016 season recovering from Tommy John Surgery.

      I think he’s a major leaguer and yes, perhaps a decent waiver wire guy, but in a deeper system, I was looking for upside and decided to go in a different direction. I do like the player but decided to go in a different direction. Hope that helps clarify…
