Mets Select 2B L.J. Mazzilli in the forth round (116th Overall)
The son of former big leaguer and former Met Lee Mazzilli was selected in the ninth round of the 2012 Draft by the Twins, but he opted to go back to UConn for his senior season. He responded with a solid all-around season that could very well help his Draft status. Mazzilli has a solid swing with decent bat speed and projects to keep hitting for average at the next level. He's not a huge power guy, but he should run into a handful of home runs and could pile up the doubles. He's an excellent baserunner who makes the most of his decent speed. Mazzilli has made progress on his defense and most feel he should be able to stay on the infield as an offensive-minded second baseman.
