Debut Details
August 15, in a 6-4 loss to the Rays. The last of four pitchers, he allowed two hits in one scoreless inning, striking out one. Of 23 pitches, 14 were for strikes. Coming on for right-handed reliever Ryan Tepera to start the top of the ninth, he struck out Peter Bourjos swginging before Wilson Ramos singled to center. Adeiny Hechavarria then reached on a force out grounder to third, erasing Ramos at second, and moved to third when Daniel Robertson doubled to left, before Corey Dickerson lined out to shortstop to end the threat and the inning.

Player Notes
Mayza, drafted out of Millersville University in Pennsylvania, is a left-handed relief specialist who brings the heat in the form of a high 90s fastball, along with a slider. He's really come on since making his full-season debut in 2015 as he's learned how to harness and control his powerful stuff. After posting ERA's of 7.76 and 6.75 respectively in 2013 and 2014 in short-season experience over a total of 55 2/3 innings, he moved up to Lansing (Class A) in 2015 where he went 3-2 with a 3.07 ERA in 26 games, striking out 62 and walking just 27 in 55 2/3 innings, allowing 49 hits for a .238 BAA, more than 100 points lower than his .345 mark in 2014 (in 2013 it was .331). In 2016, he earned Florida State League mid-season All-Star honors at Dunedin (High A) and combined between there and New Hampshire to go 3-3 with a 2.25 ERA in 42 games, striking out 65 and walking 30 in 64 innings while allowing 52 hits for a .220 BAA. Overall in his career he's posted a 3.91 ERA in 137 games (six of them starts) and fanned 232 in 228 innings while walking 107, but the collective numbers are much better if you ignore the"early years."
