The 18-year old Cecchini hit .246/.311/.330 with 12 extra-base hits, 18 walks and 43 strikeouts for the Kingsport Mets this year. Since returning from a broken pinkie on August 18th, he has DHed only. He has not played a game of shortstop since August 1. That leaves Philip Evans at shortstop for now for the Cyclones.
SSA: Brooklyn Cyclones 6, @ Aberdeen Ironbirds 3 (11 innings)
1B Jayce Boyd was 2-for-5 and homered for the second straight night. The 21-year old is hitting .235/.323/.359 with four homers in his professional debut in the New York-Penn League.
Your day in CF Brandon Nimmo: 1-for-5, 2B, BB, 2 K. With 20 doubles, he is now alone in second in the League.
So Juan Urbina relieved and allowed two runs on four hits with no walks and two strikeouts in two innings. He finished his year between the NYP and the Appy league allowing nine runs and 19 walks in 17.1 innings. Ouch.
