Cecchini added to Eastern League All Star Roster

BINGHAMTON, NY – 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 Wednesday, July 15. 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.

The B-Mets (39-38) continue their final regular season visit to Jerry Uht Park in 2015 on Thursday night at 7:05 PM. RHP Gabriel Ynoa makes his second start of the road trip and faces RHP Austin Kubitza. The Horizons Federal Credit Union Pregame Show can be heard starting at 6:50 PM on Newsradio 1290 WNBF and the Binghamton Mets channel on TuneIn.

Be sure to follow the B-Mets on their official website (www.bmets.com) or on Facebook, Twitter (@bmets) and SnapChat (binghamtonmets). Fans can also stay up to date with all the action on the field by visiting “B-Mets Buzz” at bmets.mlblogs.com or following Tim Heiman (@TimHeiman) on Twitter.
