Mazzoni has been the Wolfpack's ace this season, and he leads a pack of righthanders in North Carolina because he has the best chance of remaining a starter at the pro level. Solidly built at 6-foot-1, 195 pounds, he has been durable and holds his velocity deep into games while doing a good job of repeating his delivery. He will typically sit at 90-94 mph with his fastball and can dial it up to 97 when he needs it. He also works with a power breaking ball that isn't always consistent but can be above-average, and a splitter. It's not a conventional package for a starter because he doesn't throw a soft pitch to his glove side. His 3-6, 3.93 record is misleading. In 92 innings, Mazzoni had 105 strikeouts and 27 walks while opponents were hitting .229 against him. Scouts like his competitive nature and think he could be a back-of-the-rotation starter or move quickly as a late-inning reliever. Mazzoni figures to go off the board around the third round.
