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.

Lean, athletic 5-foot-9, 160-pound frame. The left-handed hitters starts from a tall stance, then loads back with a subtle leg lift before taking a short stride forward, landing into an athletic launch position. Good bat lag through the zone with quick-strong hands for his class. Flat path and loose finish of the barrel creates leverage to the gaps with an exit velocity of 80 mph. Solid defender plays through the ball with rhythm, plays out front with soft hands, makes accurate throws from different slots, posting a positional velocity of 85 mph. Right-handed pitcher working from a high-¾ release, with quick arm stroke, solid balance, smooth rhythm, and effort in delivery. Slightly uphill front-side working down mound with in-line direction, and finishes athletically. Fastball sat 84-85 mph and jumped out of the hand. Breaking ball showed gradual 11/5-shape and spin at 62-63 mph and change was thrown at 70-71 mph.
