21. Cory Mazzoni RHP
6-22-11: - Draft Update: - 2nd round (71st overall) pick, SP Cory Mazzoni, signed for $437,500. Slot figure was $514,800. That’s called under-slotting.
8-22-11: - #20 – RP Cory Mazzoni – Mazzoni was thrown right into the fire and has produced wonderful results for St. Lucie. Yes, it’s only five outings, but it’s obvious that he will play at this level again come spring. There still is a lot of question whether the Mets will use him as a starter, but I’d leave him in the pen. He throws around 92 but has sick late movement. Great draft pick.
8-21-11: - Stock Up – RP – Cory Mazzoni – Since signing with the Mets, Mazzoni is quietly pitching out of the St. Lucie pen and had another great outing on Sunday: 2.0-IP, 0-R, 0-H, 0-BB, 2-K. That’s a combined 10 outings for Brooklyn/St. Lucie and a 0.82 ERA.
