Third baseman Garin Cecchini is the top prospect the Red Sox are sending to play for the Surprise Saguaros in the Arizona Fall League.

Cecchini has hit .322 this season with a .914 OPS. The 22-year-old is finishing the season with Double A Portland after being promoted from Salem. Cecchini is hitting .294 for the Sea Dogs with a .420 on-base percentage.

Righthanders Keith Couch, Noe Ramirez, and Pete Ruiz are headed to the AFL as well, along with first baseman Travis Shaw and infielder Derrik Gibson. The Sox have one more infield slot to fill.

Of that group, Couch and Ramirez have shown the most promise.

The AFL starts play on Oct. 8.
