Yankees acquire infielder L.J. Mazzilli from the Mets
The Yankees made an interesting exchange on Tuesday morning as they traded away minor league outfielder, Kendall Coleman, to the Mets in exchange for minor league infielder L.J. Mazzilli. Mazzilli is the son of former Yankee player and coach Lee Mazzilli.
Coleman was taken by the Bombers in the 11th round of the 2013 draft and has not made it above Single-A. Coleman is a career .207/.309/.301 hitter in the minors.
Mazzilli was also a product of the 2013 draft, but was chosen in the fourth round by the Mets. The 27-year-old is a career .268/.339/.379 hitter in the minors and will add infield depth to the Yankees minor league teams. Mazzilli has received two suspensions in his career due to drug abuse, with the latest one coming in 2014.
