The announcement marks yet another 2013 draftee to come to terms with the organization. Mazzilli, the 116th pick in the 2013 draft, was scheduled to appear at second base for the Brooklyn Cyclones and this recent announcement makes it official.
L.J. Mazzilli is the son of former Mets player Lee Mazzilli, who played right field for the 1986 championship winning team. He was chosen by the Mets with the 14th overall pick in the 1973 draft before going on to play with the team from 1976-1982 and 1986-1989.

L.J. was drafted by the Twins in the ninth round of last years draft, but opted to return for his final year of college. His decision resulted in a senior year where he hit .354 with 51 RBI’s and went on to lead the Huskies to a Big East Title.
