Trio of B-Mets named Eastern League Postseason All-Stars
Two current Mets minor leaguers and one former one from the Double-A Mets have been named Eastern League Post Season All-Stars.
SS Gavin Cecchini, infielder Josh Rodriguez, and former Mets RHP prospect Michael Fulmer have been given the honor of Postseason All-Star, which recognizes the top player at each position in the Eastern League.
Cecchini, 21, has had a breakout year for the B-Mets. His .317 average ranks second in the Eastern League. In 29 games in July, Cecchini had a career-high 48 hits, batted .387 and compiled a .532 slugging percentage en route to the league’s player of the month award.
Rodriguez, 30, was recognized as the Eastern League’s top utility player. He hit .281 with a team-high 19 home runs with 73 RBI. He was named as an Eastern League mid-season All-Star earlier this season.
Fulmer, 22, was traded to the Tigers on July 31 in exchange for Yoenis Cespedes. But he was mostly brilliant in 15 starts for the B-Mets, going 6-2 with a 1.88 ERA with 83 strikeouts in 86 innings before being dealt.
Binghamton’s trio matches a franchise record for the most members of a single Postseason All-Star team.
