Signing former San Francisco Giants third baseman Pablo Sandoval to five year deal worth $95 million, the Boston Red Sox locked up the hot corner for the next few years. Backing up Sandoval will be utility man Brock Holt, who has shown off all kinds of versatility by playing everywhere except for pitcher and catcher. Left out of the picture for now is prospect Garin Cecchini and although there is not a spot for him on the big league club, he is happy that Boston signed the Kung Fu Panda.

“I take it as a positive for my career,” Cecchini told The Boston Globe’s Peter Abraham last week in Fort Myers. “I get to hang out with a great player like Sandoval and work with him in spring training. That has to help me.”
“It’s easy to say, ‘Where is my spot?’ But I can’t worry about that. You have to create your own opportunity.”
Last year, Cecchini added to his versatility by taking reps in left field for the Paw Sox, impressing manager Kevin Boles. Making the most of his big league opportunity last season, Cheech went 8-for-31 in 11 games for Boston, drawing three walks with a homer in his tenure.

“Now that I’ve had a little success in the big leagues, I have confidence in my ability and know what I can do. I know I can help the Red Sox win. I understand Pablo is in front of me, but I hope I can do something to help.”
Headed into the 2015 season, Cecchini will resume his role as the Paw Sox starting third baseman and likely will still be making an occasional appearance in the outfield. He got hot late last year, hitting .333 with a .413 OBP in August and is on the Red Sox 40-man roster. If he is able to carry some of that momentum over into this season, nothing but good things will happen.
