Scouting Report

1/22/21

The quick, athletic arm that Mazza showcased early on has allowed him to see significant velocity jumps throughout his high school career, and he sat in the low 90s throughout the summer with even more likely this spring. Perhaps undersized at 5-foot-10, he has a more durable, compact build at an athletic 180-pounds, and gets the most out of his frame in delivering firm fastballs that jump through the zone. The developing secondary offerings have also ticked up as a slower breaking ball early on has now shifted to a firmer, 77-81 slider, and he demonstrates aptitude for spin in making adjustments. His ability to get swings-and-misses, in the future, will help elevate his stock.
