Mets infield prospect Gavin Cecchini returned to shortstop in the Arizona Fall League on Monday after starting at second base the game before.
Cecchini, 22, has four hits in 12 at-bats, including two doubles and three walks, during four games.
He started playing second base with Triple-A Las Vegas toward the end of last season, though ESPN.com's Keith Law left unimpressed after watching him Arizona this past weekend.
"Cecchini continues to have problems throwing, even struggling on routine throws from second base," Law wrote Monday, after watching Cecchini on the right side of the infield.
In 117 games with Triple-A Las Vegas this past season, Cecchini hit .325 with a .390 OBP, with 8 HR, 27 doubles and 55 RBI, while striking out just 55 times in 446 at bats.
He had two hits in just six at-bats during his time with the Mets in September. In July, Cecchini was ranked the organization's third-best prospect by MLB.com.
Oct. 12: Cecchini has baseball in his blood. He's repeatedly described to me in a way that is reminiscent of Daniel Murphy. Basically, there is no one skill that stands out, yet he finds a way into the lineup, he does his job, he almost always has an impact on the game and he's ready to get back after it the next day.
I like that he can draw a walk, put the ball in play and rarely strikes out. He's a gap-to-gap hitter, not a big power guy, but he's got nice instincts at the plate, knows the situation and will give himself up if need be.
