Flushing, NY (Sports Network) - The New York Mets have agreed to terms with
shortstop Gavin Cecchini, their top pick in the 2012 draft.
Terms were not disclosed, but the 18-year-old Louisiana native will report to
rookie ball in Kingston of the Appalachian League later this month. He was
selected with the 12th overall pick of the draft earlier this week.
Cecchini hit .413 with seven homers, 32 runs batted in and 31 stolen bases to
help Barbe High School to the Louisiana Class 5A state title this past season.
He also played for South Lake Charles in the 2006 Little League World Series.
