The son of former major league player and manager Lee Mazzilli, L.J. was a ninth-round pick of the Twins last year but decided to return to Connecticut for his senior season. Scouts generally see him as the same player as last year, though he has shown improvement on defense. He was hitting .348/.398/.507 with 15 doubles in 53 games for the Huskies. He has a good approach, managing at-bats well and making adjustments. He is an average runner with good instincts that help his baserunning. He has a strong 6-foot-1, 190-pound frame, though his power will come more in the form of doubles as he wears out the gaps. His defense was erratic last season, but most scouts now think he can be an average defender at the keystone.
